World Of Warcraft: WOTLK Leatherworking Guide

World of Warcraft is one of the best MMORPGs available in the market. Blizzard released the Classic version of this game so gamers could play the first expansions of this title – which are the most popular.

If you want to become a great WoW player, you have to know that there are more things to do than just:

  • Picking up a character.

  • Combine skills.

  • Completing quests.

  • Choosing between the Horde or the Alliance.

A crucial part of the game is selecting a profession for your character. There are up to 11 professions that you can choose and only 2 for each character. 

They are:

  • Herbalism.

  • Mining.

  • Skinning.

  • Alchemy.

  • Blacksmithing.

  • Enchanting.

  • Engineering.

  • Inscription.

  • Jewelcrafting.

  • Leatherworking.

  • Tailoring.

Each one of them helps you obtain specific items that you can use to improve your gear, prepare food with epic recipes, learn to create great weapons or armor, and more. The thing is that you can only choose 2 of them. 

So, how do you know which one is better for you? It’s up to you to decide what items you want to create.

This article covers Leatherworking in World of Warcraft: WOTLK, what items you can craft, and a leveling guide to help you reach Grandmaster Leatherworking epic items.

Are you looking for more helping guides like this one in WOTLK Classic? You can check out MMOPixel for these guides. From here, you can also Buy Cheap WOTLK Classic Gold as well.

World of Warcraft: Wrath Of The Lich King Classic

World of Warcraft: Wrath Of The Lich King Classic is the third expansion of the classic WoW. This edition covers the success of the resurrection of the Lich King – which is Arthas fused with the Lich King.

The story is centered around how Arthas is trying to reunite the army of the dead and unleash the plague once more over the lands of Azeroth and Kalimdor.

You’ll be taking part in the events of a fierce battle against the Scourge with players all over the world and incredible in-game characters. The ultimate goal is to defeat once and for all the mighty Arthas/Lich King and save the world from the dead.

This is the closure to the Warcraft III story, where we saw Arthas’ development and his path to become what he swore to destroy.

What Is Leatherworking

Leatherworking is one of the four most important trade professions in World of Warcraft. With this trade skill, you can create all the items that require leather to be crafted. There are different levels you’ll pass if you want to unlock the highest level of leather items.

Some of the equipment you can craft are:

  • Revenant's Breastplate. 

  • Durable Nerubhide Cape.

  • Earthgiving Legguards.

  • Boots of Living Scale.

  • Belt of Arctic Life.

  • Ensorcelled Nerubian Breastplate.

  • Bracers of Swift Death.

  • Legwraps of Unleashed Nature.

  • Footpads of Impending Death.

You can sell these items in the Auction House to make a good profit, use them yourself or give them to your partners and allies.

If you want to increase your skill points in Leatherworking, you need to gather both Leather and Crafting. 

You will need the Skinning profession if you want to get the materials. Otherwise, you’ll have to pay to get them or find them in mobs – which will seriously decrease your level-up speed.

Where To Find Leatherworking Trainers

We don’t want you to lose time finding trainers to level Leatherworking. That’s why we have gathered the locations of each Leatherworking trainer in WoW WOTLK Classic – even the Grand Master Trainer – so you can go straight to them when it’s needed.

Below you have a detailed Leatherworking leveling guide to help you thrive WoW Classic.

Blizzard Entertainment made sure that you struggle to get all the benefits from these trade skills, but with this guide, you reach the highest level faster than expected.

Apprentice Leatherworking

The first levels of Leatherworking are the slowest ones. You’ll have to go from level 1 to 75 if you want to reach the next category.

At this point, you must learn the Journeyman Leatherworking skill to have more recipes available.

You can also reach level 55 by crafting Small Leather Ammo Pouch using the same materials in the table above.

The Fine Leather Belt is another Green item you need to make. It requires 150 Light Leather and 50 Coarse Thread to reach level 110 in your specialization.

There are two ways to reach level 150. One requires Medium Leather, and the other Medium Hide. Depending on the server, it will cost less than one form of the other.
