This Knothide Leather farming guide is made to help you farm Knothide Leather. I decided to search for places with high density of mobs which I can skin and drop Knothide Leather. I traveled around Outland, and after a while I made a list of places.
The recommended skinning skill for farming Knothide Leather is around 275. If you farm at these places with lower Skinning skill, you will get a lot of [Knothide Leather Scraps] until you reach 275.
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.
This part is only for players above level 80, skip this part if you are only around level 70 and check the places mentioned below. Karazhan is a level 70 raid instance, you won't be able to solo this one if your level is too low.
Karazhan is by far the best place to farm if your level is high enough. You can find the entrance at Deadwind Pass.
Turn right after you enter, skip the spiders and then kill all the bats and fel hounds. Once you are done, go outside and right click on your own portrait then click reset all instance. You can expect 60 leathers each run and one run takes about 4 minutes, so you will get around 600 leather in an hour. (You cannot reset an instance more than 10 times per hour)
Don't kill any raid boss or you won't be able to reset the instance!
Killing Razorthorn Ravager in Terrokar Forest is the best way to farm Knothide Leather if your level is not high enough to solo Karazhan.
You will need a flying mount to reach the Ravagers because they are on top of a mountain, don't confuse them with the Ravagers at Hellfire Penninsula.
There are also a few big guys around this area but you can't skin them.
Echo-Dome Midrealm in Netherstorm is also a great place. After you have done a full lap, most mobs will respawn.
If you are below level 68, you should go to Nagrand and farm Talbuk Thorngrazers near Garadar.
Contact me if you have other great farming spots!
