Heavy Hide farming

I made this Heavy Hide farming guide to help out players who want to farm the leathers instead of buying them from the Auction House. I decided to search for places with high density of mobs which I can skin and drop Heavy Hide.

Important! Heavy Hide has a really low drop rate, around 3-5%, so don't expect to get one after every few kills.

Heavy Hide

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.


  • Mob levels: 36-37 elites
  • Recommended skinning level: 185

Uldaman is located at Badlands, and it's the best place to farm Heavy Hide, but it's only recommended for higher level players.

Just simply clear bats, scorpions, and basilisks at the marked area. The fastest way is to pull everything then kill them all at one place. You should expect 1-3 Heavy Hides each run.

The instance has two entrances, you should enter from this one. After you cleared the instance, run out, then you have to reset it by right clicking over your own portrait, and then click the "Reset Instance" button. This restarts the whole instance, and all mobs will be back. You can only do 10 instance runs in an hour.


  • Mob levels: 36-37
  • Recommended skinning level: 185

You can farm Heavy Hide by killing Feral Scar Yetis or Rage Scar Yetis in Feralas.

Dustwallow Marsh

  • Mob levels: 37-39
  • Recommended skinning level: 195

Next one is in Dustwallow Marsh, the area is full of beasts. Just go around, and kill every Raptors, Dragonkins, Crocolisks.

Western Plaguelands

  • Mob levels: 36-37
  • Recommended skinning level: 185

In Western Plaguelands there is an area around The Mender's Stead where you can kill and skin Hulking Plaguebears and Diseased Wolves.

WoW Leveling Guide 1-110 Do you want to reach level 110 fast?

I recommend Zygor's Leveling Guide. The guide is in an small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quest is included. You’ll never have to switch back to a website, or even the in-game main map to see where you have to go or what’s next. The guide is available for both Horde and Alliance.

I use Zygor's guide for leveling and I highly recommend it.
