Animals in Ymir are a source of Meat and Leather and can be collected in the following methods:

  1. As a Resource that can be gathered by a hunter.
  2. As a herd roaming on the world map, which the player can either hunt or capture.
  3. As a hostile Unit during a random event while exploring the world map.
  4. As an inventory item obtained through capture or breeding.
  5. As a Prospect-able Resource, which can then be Scavenged from the territory.

While a hunter or attacking a herd provides meat and leather directly, animals in inventory form must be processed by a butcher.
