Classic WoW Leatherworking Leveling Guide 1-300

Cezar Renta

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:

Leatherworking Trainers

Horde trainers:

  • Karolek (Expert Leatherworker) in Orgrimmar.
  • Tarn (Expert Leatherworker) in Thunder Bluff.
  • Arthur Moore (Expert Leatherworker) in Undercity.

Alliance trainers:

Materials needed for leveling Leatherworking
