Heavy Leather Farming Spots

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

So, where to farm Heavy Leather?

Heavy 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.

Below you can find the list of the best farming spots:


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

You can farm Heavy Leather by killing Feral Scar Yetis or Rage Scar Yetis in Feralas. These mobs drop Heavy Leather almost exclusively, I only got a few Thick Leathers by farming them, the respawn rate is really quick. I also like yetis a lot more than other beasts because they drop cloths instead of trash grey items.

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.

These are my favorite places for Heavy Leather farming. Contact me if you have better farming spots!
