Borean Leather Farming

This Borean Leather farming guide is made to help you farm Borean Leather. I decided to search for places with high density of mobs which I can skin and drop Borean Leather. I traveled around Northrend, and after a while I made a list of places.

The recommended Skinning skill is 350 for farming, else you will get a lot of leather fragments.

So, where to farm Borean Leather?


Borean Leather

Before you go anywhere, clear your bags first. That’s because for skinning the animals, you need to loot them first. This means you will gather a lot of junk stuff filling your bags.

Gundrak

  • Mob levels: 77

Important! Set the instance to normal.

The best place to farm Borean Leather is Gundrak, but you have to be at least around level 85 to farm there efficiently. You only have to kill Unyielding Constrictors in the first part of the instance, then run out and reset.

You can reset the instance by right clicking over your own portrait then click the "Reset all instance" button. This restarts the whole instance and all mobs will be back. You can only do 10 instance runs in an hour, and one run will take about 3-4 minutes, this means you will have around 20-30 minutes downtime when you can't enter the instance. Fortunately, a very good farming place is right outside of the instance, you can read more about this at the Zul'Drak farming section below.

Note: Gundrak has two entrance. You have to enter through this one.

Zul'Drak

  • Mob levels: 76-77

You will find a lot of Gundrak Raptors in Zul'Drak near Gundrak instance. These raptors are a bit spread apart, so first you might think this is a bad place to farm, but they drop 1-3 Borean Leather, which makes this place really good.

You should follow the red line on the map below and by the time you do a full circle, the mobs will respawn at the start, if they didn't respawn you can just skin a few bats until they do. You will get more leather/minute if you use your mount after each raptor if the next one is far away.

This place cannot support more than one farmer.

Sholazar Basin

  • Mob levels: 76-77

Sholazar Basin is a decent place to farm, you will find Hardknuckle Foragers and Hardknuckle Chargers around Frenzyheart Hil.

Storm Peaks

  • Mob levels: 77-80

The area around the Engine of the Makers is also a good place to farm. There are lots of Rhinos and Dragons here. You can also go into the cave called Gimorak's Den, I marked it with a yellow X on the map.

These are my favorite places for Borean Leather farming. Contact me if you have other great farming spots!
