Classic WoW Leatherworking Leveling Guide 1-300

This Classic WoW Leatherworking Leveling Guide will show you the fastest and cheapest way how to level your Leatherworking skill up from 1 to 300.

Leatherworking is the best combined with Skinning, and I highly recommend to level these professions together. It will be a lot easier to get the needed leathers if you have Skinning. You can also just buy the materials at the Auction House, but then you will need a lot of gold.

If you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt, I recommend using Zygor's 1-60 Leveling Guide. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quest is included.

Leatherworking guide sections:

Approximate Materials Required:

NOTE: You can buy the threads, dyes, and salt from Leatherworking Supply vendors near your trainer.

Classic Leatherworking Trainer Location

To become an Apprentice Leatherworker you need to reach level 5 and find a Leatherworking trainer.

Just click on any of these links below to see the trainer's exact location. You can also walk up to a guard in any city and ask where the Leatherworking trainer is, then it will be marked with a red flag on your map

Horde trainers:

Alliance trainers:

Classic Leatherworking Leveling - (1 - 55)

  • 1-20
    19 x Light Leather - 57 Ruined Leather Scraps

    Make the next recipe if you don't have Ruined Leather Scraps.

Journeyman Leatherworking - (55 - 137)

You can only train Leatherworking past 75 if you learn Journeyman Leatherworking. Not every Leatherworking trainer will teach you this skill, you have to find an Expert Leatherworker. (Requires level 10)

You can learn Journeyman Leatherworking from these NPCs below:

Horde trainers:

Alliance trainers:

Expert Leatherworking - (137 - 205)

To become an Expert Leatherworker you need to reach level 20 and level up Leatherworking to 125, then find an Expert Leatherworking trainer.

You can learn Expert Leatherworking from Telonis in Darnassus (Alliance) and Una in Thunder Bluff (Horde).

  • 155-165
    20 x Cured Heavy Hide - 20 Heavy Hide, 60 Salt

    You will need the Cured Heavy Hides later.

    Below you can find an alternative way if you don't have any Heavy Hides at all, which is usually the case since Heavy Hide has a pretty low drop rate. But if for example, you can get 5 Heavy Hides, you should stop making Barbaric Leggings at 195 and start making Guardian Gloves.

    Pattern: Barbaric Leggings is sold by these NPCs.

  • 190-200
    10 x Guardian Gloves - 40 Heavy Leather, 10 Cured Heavy Hide, 10 Silken Thread

Artisan Leatherworking (205 - 300)

To become an Artisan Leatherworker you need to reach level 35 and level up Leatherworking to 200, then find an Artisan Leatherworking trainer.

Alliance players can learn it from Drakk Stonehand. He is in the main Wildhammer Keep in Aerie Peak of the Hinterlands, North of South Shore. He's sort of to the left inside, and down one layer of stairs.

For Horde players, the Artisan Leatherworking Trainer is Hahrana Ironhide in Feralas at Camp Mojache.

  • 205-235
    40 x Nightscape Headband - 200 Thick Leather, 80 Silken Thread

    You need a bit more Silken Thread to make these compared to the Thick Armor kits, but you can sell the Headbands to the vendor for a lot more, so they are actually cheaper than making the armor kits.

I hope you liked this Classic WoW Leatherworking leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 300!

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.
