Leatherworking Leveling Guide

Skill Ranges

 

With leatherworking you can create leather and mail armor, a few other items, and some self-only bracer enchants that will add more of your best stats than any other enchant.

Obviously Skining is the perfect compliment to Leatherworking, unless you're level 85 and don't want to have to skin a ginormous number of critters for their skins and the measly bit of crit rating that you'll get from a maxed skinning skill.

Enchanting is a good compliment to leatherworking. You'll be able to enchant any gear youi make for yourself and you can put enchants on gear that you are selling. You can also disenchant the surplus green and better gear that you create.

Rogues and Druids will want your leather item, Shammies and Hunters will want your mail items.

 

1-150

Ruined leather scraps - if you're skinning you'll get a pile of them. If you're buying then youi may find that they are way cheaper than light leather, sometimes selling for coppers. In either case, make the ruined stuff into light leather and you'll level your skill as high as 40 and have a stack of light leather to work with.

The same applies to Borean leather scraps and Savage leather scraps.

Otherwise, then general routine is to look at the orange skills that you have and pick the one that gives the most pieces for the least quantity of materials. If item A and Item B are both orange, then create the item that will give you more finished product for the materials that you have on hand.
