Roughly 60 HQ per hour in Mesa cave, outside the cave, and outside cave across the river. About 1 in every 2-3 bears drops a HQ.

Very easy to gather in Mesa.

I looted both Thick Grizzly Bear Skins as well as ruined to high quality bear skin off young Kodiaks in Commonlands.

I prefer reinforced medicine bags over handmade backpacks due to the giant capacity. Both have 10% weight reduction and 10 slots.

For the medicine bags,I found lots of spiderlings in Feerot. (need 6 spiderling silks per medicine bag)

At level 50ish, the caves just inside of Blackfeather Roost frequently drop high qual bear and thick grizzly pelts. I was able to accumulate quite a few of both in relatively little time.

Goru'kar Mesa Has ton's of all type of bear pelts...Easy to get a stack of all types. Thick hides don't drop as fast though.
Drops on Adolescent Cave Bears in Icefall

I got 7 HQ Skin Drops on Adolescent Cave Bears in Icefall tonight. Killed 50+ of them, but someone else was also looting. I took over when their bags were full. Probably about 30 out of 50 kills.
Low expectations

Umm, I killed a young kodiak in EC with my 32 Warrior and hit it with major amounts of damage, using two blades. It dropped a high quality skin (not that I'm complaining). I think I should've damaged it more...

If your looking for these to make backpacks, give up. High Quality rockhopper pelts also work and are much easier to farm, near the pok book in shadeweavers thicket "needle clawed hopper"

I think this has been nerfed ... been hunting in shadeweavers for almost 4 hours and only got one HQ pelt /skin ... maybe i am just unlucky :(

I don't think it's nerfed. Same when im making leather padding, and hunting wolves and bears and cats. for 30 min i only got ruined pelts, then i got several quality pelts then none for a while ect. Might possibly be luck or a bug, or maybe they only drop every now and then so there's not too many in circulation.

I just spent about 3 hours by the pok book in Shadeweaver's Thicket.. and got 1 HQ pelt to show for it. -_- You're better off farming lower qualities and getting them upgraded in Gukta.
