As we mentioned above, Mutated Skin is a crafting ingredient in Nioh 2. You can get it by killing Dwellers, the feeble looking zombie-like enemies which were once human before being corrupted into Yokai. These guys aren't skeletons, so you want to hunt for the skinny but still skinned enemies dotted around. There are plenty of them filling the world, and you can find many early on in the mission titled The Beast Born of Smoke and Flames. That’s also the mission which unlocks the Blacksmith, in case you weren’t sure. You can also find them throughout the underground sections, looking like they need a bit more sun.

Dwellers aren’t difficult to fight, but don’t judge them too much, they’re only regular people after all. Take them down in large numbers to farm for Mutated Skin so that you’ve got enough for whatever you’re looking to craft. They’re also a great place to gather some Soul Cores or train your Onmyo skills while you farm. Once you’ve got enough, just head back to the Blacksmith who’ll be happy to take all the nasty skin you’ve collected. Try not to think too hard about how you got it off the Dweller bodies. Yuck.
