This WoW Leatherworking guide will show you the fastest and cheapest way how to level your Leatherworking skill up from 1 to 450. Updated for WoW patch 3.3

Leatherworking is the best combined with Skinning, but it’s not required to have skinning aswell. You can buy the materials at the Auction House too, but then make sure you will have enough gold. Check out my Skinning guide, if you want to level Skinning.

WoW Leatherworking Leveling Guide 1 – 525

First, visit any trainer in the main cities of old Azeroth – just ask a guard, and learn Leatherworking Apprentice.

Make sure to check out my Farming Guides if you wan to farm the leathers instead of buying them.

You should start with Light Leather farming if you want to farm the leathers.

  • 20-30 or 1-30
    10 x [Light Armour Kit] – 10 Light Leather

    You can make these from 1-30 too, if you don’t have Ruined Leather Scraps.

55 – 135

Learn Leatherworking Journeyman.

  • 85-100
    15 x [Fine Leather Belt] – 90 Light Leather, 30 Coarse Thread

    Keep these, you will need them.

Go to my Medium Leather farming guide if you want to farm the leathers.

135 – 200

Learn Leatherworking Expert.

Go to my Heavy Leather farming guide if you want to farm the leathers.

  • 190-200
    10 x [Guardian Gloves] – 40 Heavy Leather, 10 Cured Heavy Hide, 10 Silken Thread

Go to my Thick Leather farming guide if you want to farm the leathers.

205 – 265

Learn Leatherworking Artisan.

Go to my Rugged Leather farming guide if you want to farm the leathers.

  • 265-290
    25 x [Wicked Leather Bracers] – 200 Rugged Leather, 25 Black Dye, 25 Rune Thread

    Recipe is yellow for the last few points, you might need to make more.

    If 4 Heavy Scorpid Scale are cheaper than 4 Rugged Leather, you can craft the following item:

    [Heavy Scorpid Bracers]Recipe location

    Or make [Frostsaber Boots] if one Essence of Water is cheaper than 4 Rugged Leather on your realm.

290 – 350

Visit your trainer learn Leatherworking Master.

Go to my Knothide Leather farming guide if you want to farm the leathers.

  • 325-335
    43 x [Heavy Knothide Leather] – 215 Knothide Leather

    Just go to the next step if you didn’t reach 335 by making these, but then you will need a few more [Heavy Knothide Leather].

    If one Heavy Knothide Leather is cheaper than 5 Knothide Leather, stop making the Heavy Knothide Leathers when you reach 330, buy them from the Auction House instead.

  • 340-350
    If you don’t have to that much Fel Scales, you can make [Thick Draenic Vest] up to 345 or 350 if you can’t find any Fel Scales in the AH at all.

    14 x [Scaled Draenic Boots] – 28 Heavy Knothide Leather, 28 Fel Scales, 42 Rune Thread

    This recipe goes yellow at 345, so you will need to make a few extra ones. I suggest gathering enough materials for 14.

350 – 425

Visit your trainer and learn Leatherworking Grand Master.

Go to my Borean Leather farming guide if you want to farm the leathers.

  • 390-405
    Make the recipe below until you reach 400, then go to the Auction House and check the [Arctic Fur] prices. If one Arctic Fur is cheaper than 4 Heavy Borean Leather (24 Borean Leather) then buy it and make any Fur Lining recipe. Buy as many as you can and don’t make the 123 Heavy Borean Leathers if you bought Arctics Furs, make more only if you need it.

    123 x [Heavy Borean Leather] – 738 Borean Leather

425 – 525

Visit your trainer and learn Leatherworking Illustrious.

Go to my Savage Leather farming guide if you want to farm the leathers.

  • 425-435
    10 x [Savage Leather] – 50 Savage Leather Scraps

    Start making the next recipe in the guide if you don’t have Savage Leather Scraps, and obviously if you have more Scraps, just make Savage Leather until it turns gray.

  • 450-460
    10 x [Tsunami Boots] – 70 Savage Leather, 10 Eternium Thread

    You can buy Eternium Threads from Leatherworking Supply vendors and you could also make any other item that requires 7 Savage Leather.

  • 460-470
    10 x [Savage Cloak] – 70 Savage Leather, 10 Eternium Thread

    Or any other orange item that requires 7 Savage Leather.

  • 496-502
    2 x [Cloak of Beast] – 16 Heavy Savage Leather, 4 Volatile Earth, 4 Volatile Air, 4 Volatile Water, 4 Volatile Fire
  • 502-504
    2 x [Darkbrand Helm] – 10 Heavy Savage Leather

    It is really important to stop making these at 504!

  • 504-510
    2 x [Cloak of Beast] – 16 Heavy Savage Leather, 4 Volatile Earth, 4 Volatile Air, 4 Volatile Water, 4 Volatile Fire

    or

    2 x [Cloak of War] – 120 Blackened Dragonscale

  • 510-525
    You can buy these recipes in all major cities near your Leatherworking Trainer, the NPC is labeled as "Leatherworking Supplies". This does not include Dalaran and Shattrath.

    Every vendor recipe changes to yellow after 5 skill points, this means you’re going to purchase a new recipe every 5 points. Each of these recipes gives you 2 skill points. You can use different recipes, because most of them use the same amount of materials, here is the path I did:

    You will need 30 more Heavy Savage Leathers to buy the 3 recipes.

    3 x [Vicious Leather Bracers] – 30 Heavy Savage Leather, 30 Volatile Fire

    3 x [Vicious Leather Boots] – 30 Heavy Savage Leather, 30 Volatile Fire

    2 x [Vicious Leather Helm] – 20 Heavy Savage Leather, 20 Volatile Water
