Legion Leatherworking Leveling Guide 1-100

This Legion Leatherworking guide will show you the fastest and cheapest way how to level your Legion Leatherworking skill up from 1 to 100.

Leatherworking is the best combined with skinning, and I highly recommend to level these professions together because it will be a lot easier to get the needed materials if you have skinning. So, check out my Skinning Leveling Guide if you want to level skinning. You can also just buy the mleathers at the Auction House, but then you will need a lot of gold.

If you are low on gold, I recommend you to try this Gold Making Guide, it can help you to make loads of gold.

If you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt, I recommend you to use a leveling guide. You can level your character to level 120 in 8 days with this guide.

Learning Legion Leatherworking

First, visit your Leatherworking trainer Namha Moonwater at Dalaran. Just walk up to a guard in the city, you can ask them where the Leatherworking trainer is located.

After you learn Leatherworking, pick up the quest Skin Deep from Namha Moonwater. (requires level 98)

The quest reward is [Legion Leatherworker].

Unlocking recipes

Leatherworking recipes are unlocked by doing quests for your profession trainer Namha Moonwater.

You should get to level 110 and finish every Leatherworking quest before you continue this guide.

There are 42 Leatherworking quest in total, they are pretty straight forward, so I will not write down the details of every quests. Some of the quests lead you to dungeons but you can finish every quest easily in a few hours if you start them at 110, otherwise you will have to wait because later quests have level requirement.

The last quest series can only be unlocked at level 110. To get these quest you have to do Suramar storyline up to Masquerade quest. You will get the starting Suramar quests from Khadgar as soon as you hit 110 and visit Dalaran. After you finish the Masquerade quest, visit your Leatherworking trainer at Dalaran and pick up the quest Demon Flesh. After you finish this quest chain, you will get two rewards: [Recipe: Gravenscale Armbands], and [Recipe: Dreadleather Bindings] . You can also buy the rest of the armor sets from Stalriss Dawnrunner at Suramar after you complete the quest. You will use one from these to level leatherworking from 75 to 100.

Recipe ranks

Most Legion recipes now have 3 ranks. Higher rank recipes allow you to craft an item for fewer materials, and they stay orange for a lot longer (grants guaranteed skill-ups). Therefore, you should only use rank 3 recipes when you can.

Rank 3 recipes comes from different sources like Vendors, World Quests, Reputation, dungeon drops, and even rated battleground wins.

If you hover over the little stars in your spellbook, you can see the source of the next rank for the selected recipe.

Unlocking World Quests

Most of the of the rank 3 Battlebound and Warhide recipes comes from World Quests. To get these quests, you must first complete Uniting the Isles by reaching friendly reputation with every Legion faction. You can get this quest from Archmage Khadgar.

If your first character has already completed this, you don't need to grind rep on your alts.

 After you unlocked the quests, you also have to level your Legion Leatherworking to at least 25 to unlock the profession World quests.

1 - 75

Check out my guides on Stonehide Leather farming, and Stormscale farming.

90 x [Rank 3 - Warhide Bindings] - 810 x Stonehide Leather

This recipe will be green for the last 5 points, so you this is just an aproximate number. It will depend on your luck how many you have to make. (you can also make it up to 80 if you are feeling lucky, but at that point it might take 10 craft for 1 skill point, so it's better to make the next recipe)

You can also make [Rank 3 - Battlebound Grips], if 1080 Stormscale is cheaper than 810 Stonehide Leather.

If you finished every Leatherworking quests, you should have rank 2 version of every Battlebound and Warhide armor pieces. Now your aim should be to get one of the rank 3 recipes.

Rank 3 recipes:

Alternative Rank 3 recipe for Stormscale:

[Battlebound Treads] - Dropped by Dargrul in Neltharion's Lair dungeon.

75 - 100

Now you need to get a rank 2, and a rank 3 recipe from one of the Gravenscale or Dreadleather armor pieces.

These two belt recipes below are the best recipes for this part, because it's really easy to get the rank 3 recipes, and they are also the cheapest ones. [Blood of Sargeras] binds when picked up, so you can't buy it but most player usually have a lot of these just laying around.

Rank 1 recipes are sold by Stalriss Dawnrunner at Suramar but only if you completed the quests. (scroll back to the unlocking recipes part, if you still didn't finish the quests)

Rank 2 and Rank 3 of these belts are sold by Strap Bucklebolt for 250 and 500 [Sightless Eye] at the Dalaran Sewers. Check out my Sightless Eye farming guide, you can get the 750 in about 25 minutes, or even less.
