This Shadowlands Leatherworking leveling guide will show you the fastest and cheapest way how to level your Shadowlands Leatherworking skill up from 1 to 100. The guide's primary focus is to show you how to level this profession, so if you are looking for more detailed information about Shadowlands Leatherworking, check out my Shadowlands Leatherworking Guide.
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 leathers at the Auction House, but then you will need a lot of gold.
Shadowlands Leatherworking Trainer Location
You can learn Shadowlands Leatherworking from Tanner Au'qil in Oribos in the Hall of Shapes. (Coordinates: 42.6, 26.8)
Oribos is the new Shadowlands city hub for both factions. You will arrive there after you finish the Shadowlands intro quests, so you can learn the new profession recipes before you head out questing.
Leveling Shadowlands Leatherworking
Check out my Desolate Leather Farming Guide if you want to farm the leathers! All skinnable mobs can drop the 5 new skinning materials, so you can farm the same mobs for every leather.
Approximate Materials Required for 1-100
Curing Salt and Penumbra Thread are sold by Distributor Au'tem. (he is standing a few yards to the east from your trainer) They are not listed in the guide at most recipes since you can just buy a bunch of them from the vendor.
