This Knothide Leather farming guide is made to help you farm Knothide Leather. I decided to search for places with a high density of mobs that I can skin and drop Knothide Leather. I traveled around Outland, and after a while, I made a list of places.
Learn Outland Skinning from any of these NPCs below before you start farming. You can skin these mobs below without Outland Skinning, but you will get a lot fewer leathers.
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. The entrance to Karazhan is at Deadwind Pass. You can find it in Eastern Kingdoms between Duskwood and Swamp of Sorrows.
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 instances. You can expect 130 pieces of leather each run and one run takes about 4 minutes, so you will get around 1300 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!
Echo-Dome Midrealm in Netherstorm is also a great place. After you have done a full lap, most mobs will respawn.
The Talbuk Thorngrazers are a bit spread apart here, but otherwise, a really good place to farm Knothide Leather.
Kill Razorthorn Ravager in Terrokar Forest. 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.
Contact me if you have other great farming spots!
