In World of Warcraft, Leatherworking is just one of the many professions that a player can pick from. This mini guide will help you learn to level your Leatherworking skill as quickly as possible.

    What you need...

    When it comes to Leatherworking, you pretty much have to pick Skinning as your other skill. If you do not, then you will find that you will be buying all of your leather on the auction house and costing yourself a ton of money that you really do not have to spend at all. Those that can wear leather armor are really the ones that will benefit from the Leatherworking profession the most, as you will be able to make and wear everything. Also, once you gain a high enough skill level and toon level, you will be able to make a ton of Epic armors, some that are only bind on pickup, but a lot that you will be able to sell on the auction house for great amounts of gold.

    To help you get started on your Leatherworking journey, I have fashioned this guide in the same manner as my Tailoring guide, where I will give you the amount of materials that you will need, what patterns you should make to get you to which levels, and information on the specializations that you can go into when you get to level 350 in Leatherworking. So, here is my Leatherworking mini guide so you will know what you need and what to do!

    Materials

    Here are the materials and the number of each that you will need to get you to 375 as soon as possible:

    Light Leather = 370

    Medium Leather = 590

    Heavy Leather = 400

    Thick Leather = 670

    Rugged Leather = 350

    Cured Heavy Hyde = 10

    Iron Buckle = 5

    Turtle Scale = 115

    Wildvine = 4

    Cured Thick Hyde = 2

    Worn Dragonscale = 60

    Now, the materials change a bit, depending on which side (Aldor or Scryer) you choose:

    Aldor:

    Knothide Leather Scraps = 100

    Knothide Leather = 680

    Thick Clefthoof Leather = 200

    Fel Hide = 20

    Rune Thread = 70

    Fel Scales = 90

    Cobra Scales = 20

    Primal Earth = 15

    Primal Shadow = 50

    Scryer:

    Knothide Leather Scraps = 100

    Knothide Leather = 720

    Rune Thread = 100

    Fel Scales = 90

    Primal Mana = 30

    Thick Clefthoof Leather = 200

    Cobra Scales = 20

    Primal Earth = 15

    Primal Shadow = 10

    So, now that you know exactly what all you will need for your Leatherworking journey, the next part of this series will help you go from Leatherworking level 1 to a little bit over 200.
