Thick Leather Farming Spots

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

So, where to farm Thick Leather?

Thick 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.

Blackrock Depths

  • Mob levels: 49-50(elite)
  • Recommended skinning level: 250

Killing Bloodhounds in Blackrock Depths is the best place to farm Thick Leather. If you are level 85+ you can easily pull every Bloodhound. I didn't have a chance to try with lower levels but I think you should be at least level 75. One round takes around 6-7 minutes with a level 90 character, and you will get around 50 leathers.

Follow the route I draw on the map below, the entire pack will follow you the whole time and you can AoE them down in just a few seconds. Don't kill the mobs one by one, kill them all at once at the end, it will be a lot faster because of the AoE looting.

Important!!! Sometimes you can have problems with mobs despawning if you are skinning them too slow, then you should do the pull in two parts!

To get to Blackrock Depths, enter Blackrock Mountain from either southwest Searing Gorge or northwest Burning Steppes. If you enter from Searing Gorge, climb up on the giant chain that appears to your left and go down onto the big rock suspended in the center. Follow the stairs down and exit downwards onto the chain at the bottom. The quest giver for MC attunement is straight ahead and a passage leads right to get to the instance. Bear left in the cave and the instance is at the end of the chamber. Here is a picture if you still don't know where to find the cave in Blackrock Mountain where the instance entrance is.


  • Mob levels: 46-47
  • Recommended skinning level: 235

The best place to farm Thick Leather is in Badlands if you can't farm Blackrock Depths. If you kill Nyxondra's Broodling near New Kargath, you will get Thick Leather 90% of the time. They are only a few feet apart from each other and they will respawn before you clear the area.

Un'goro Crater

  • Mob levels: 48-49
  • Recommended skinning level: 245

Another good place is in Un'goro Crater. The Ravasaurs there drop the same amount of Thick Leather as the whelps in Badlands, but they are far from each other and it's a bit harder to kill them.

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

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.
