1. Why Level up Leatherworking to 700?

All of the Draenor-specific Leatherworking recipes can be crafted with a skill of 1. So, reaching the maximum skill in Warlords of Draenor is not as important as it was in previous expansions. The only perk you get from leveling Leatherworking is that the yield of Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leather slowly increases from 5 at Level 600 to 10 at Level 700, meaning that you can craft more bags, item level 640 armor, and item upgrades.

2. Learning Draenor Leatherworking

Leveling Leatherworking in Draenor requires you to first acquire Draenor Leatherworking Icon Draenor Leatherworking, which teaches you how to craft Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leather, Secret of Draenor Leatherworking Icon Secrets of Draenor Leatherworking, and other Draenor recipes that you can use from Level 1.

You can acquire Draenor Leatherworking Icon Draenor Leatherworking from the Leatherworking Patterns vendor in Ashran, from the Leatherworker at the The Tannery in your Garrison, or at the end of the quest line that allows you to unlock the Tannery before upgrading your Town Hall to Level 2.

3. Leveling Leatherworking from 600 to 700

The easiest way to level Leatherworking to 700 is to make Leather Refurbishing Kit Icon Leather Refurbishing Kit. This recipe only consumes 10x Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leathers and has a +3 skill up, which is the best ratio you can get. Burnished Inscription Bag Icon Burnished Inscription Bag, Burnished Leather Bag Icon Burnished Leather Bag, and Burnished Mining Bag Icon Burnished Mining Bag are the next best recipes with a +10 skill up for 50x Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leathers consumed.

That said, the reason why you level up Leatherworking is to craft high-end armor and weapons, not to craft dozens of Leather Refurbishing Kits, so we believe that you should forsake leveling up Leatherworking as fast as possible. Instead, whenever you reach 100x Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leather, you should craft a weapon or armor than you can use or make a lot of profit from:

Each of the recipes mentioned above cost 1x Secret of Draenor Leatherworking Icon Secret of Draenor Leatherworking and can be bought from the Leatherworker at your Tannery. They all consume 100x Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leathers and give you a +10 skill up.

3.1. Duration

Leveling to 700 is going to take about a month, because you are required to use Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leathers, which you can make in limited quantities every day.

3.2. Burnished Leathers and Secrets of Draenor Leatherworking

Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leather and Secrets of Draenor Leatherworking Icon Secrets of Draenor Leatherworking have a daily cooldown, which resets at the same time the daily quests do. You need to craft these two recipes every day, to maximize the speed at which you level up Leatherworking. Each of these recipes grants you a +1 skill up.

It is also important to place 6 Work Orders a day at your Tannery, otherwise, leveling up Leatherworking is going to take a lot longer than the month we announced.

4. Leveling Leatherworking from 1 to 600

You can craft any of the Warlords of Draenor recipes from Level 1. The best recipes for leveling up are:

They all consume only 50x Raw Beast Hide Icon Raw Beast Hide and give a +5 skill up, so you can instantly level up from 1 to 600, but you will require 6,000 Raw Beast Hide Icon Raw Beast Hide.

Below Level 600, Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leather gives a +10 skill up, so making this recipe and Secrets of Draenor Leatherworking Icon Secrets of Draenor Leatherworking is already a +11 skill up every day, in case you cannot not afford to buy 6,000 hides.

4.1. Catch-up Items

There are 4 items that you can randomly loot from mobs in Draenor and that increase your Leatherworking skill by 5. Technically speaking, you need to combine these items with Draenor materials to create a new item and increase your Leatherworking skill by 5 in the process.
