The Leatherworking profession in Classic WoW lets the player create leather-based armor and items. The crafting profession is best paired with Skinning as it provides a constant flow of materials to level it. It’s worth noting that even if the profession allows you to create leather items, there are some exceptions such as Blue Dragonscale Leggings (which is mail armor), Onyxia Scale Cloak or Core Armor Kit used for tanks to increase the defense value of their chest, hands, legs or feet armor.
We also recommend checking our WoW Classic Guide for all the professions guides, leveling tips and guides as well as farming guides and class builds.
Unlike most crafting professions, Leatherworking has a choice of 3 specializations:
- Dragonscale Leatherworking – lets the player craft more mail-based gear
- Tribal Leatherworking – agility and intellect-based leather gear such as the Devilsaur Armor set.
- Elemental Leatherworking – allows the crafting of leather gear with elemental resistances
- Karolek (Expert Leatherworker) in Orgrimmar.
- Tarn (Expert Leatherworker) in Thunder Bluff.
- Arthur Moore (Expert Leatherworker) in Undercity.
- Simon Tanner (Expert Leatherworker) in Stormwind City.
- Faldron (Expert Leatherworker) in Darnassus.
- Fimble Finespindle (Expert Leatherworker) in Ironforge.
