Garrison: The Tannery Guide (WoD 6.2)

Last updated on Feb 24, 2015 at 10:03 by Damien 4 comments

Table of Contents

The Tannery is a Small Garrison building that Leatherworkers and Non-Leatherworkers can use to craft Draenor-specific Leatherworking recipes.

While we explain, in this article, how to unlock all levels of the Tannery, you may be interested in our guide to unlocking all the Garrison buildings. We also have a guide to leveling Leatherworking in Draenor.

1. Main Perks

For Leatherworkers, the main perk of the Tannery is that it allows you to create a maximum of 12x Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leathers per day, in addition to the 10x you can already craft with Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leather (less with an Leatherworking skill lower than 700). These extra Leathers are really useful, because they allow you to craft more Draenor recipes, which means you make more money off the Auction House and you level up Leatherworking to 700 faster. The Tannery is also where you buy your Draenor-specific Leatherworking recipes.

For Non-Leatherworkers, the main perk of the Tannery is that the resident Leatherworker can craft most of the Draenor-specific Leatherworking recipes for you.

3. Unlocking the Tannery

In this section, we are going to tell you how to unlock the Tannery, Level 1, 2, and 3.

3.1. Unlocking the Tannery, Level 1

The Tannery Level 1 is unlocked when you upgrade your Town Hall to Level 2.

Leatherworkers can build this building with a Town Hall Level 1, because they have a chance to loot Dirty Note Icon Dirty Note (Alliance) and Tattered Frostwolf Shroud Icon Tattered Frostwolf Shroud (Horde). This item drops from humanoid mobs around Draenor and starts a quest line that eventually rewards the plan to build the Tannery, Garrison Blueprint: The Tannery, Level 1 Icon Garrison Blueprint: The Tannery, Level 1, and Draenor Leatherworking Icon Draenor Leatherworking, which teaches basic Draenor recipes that can be used to level up the profession.

If you are a Leatherworker and the quest item does not drop for you, then you can buy your Draenor Leatherworking Icon Draenor Leatherworking for 100 Gold from the Leatherworker at your Tannery, after upgrading your Town Hall to Level 2.

3.2. Unlocking the Tannery, Level 2

Garrison Blueprint: The Tannery, Level 2 Icon Garrison Blueprint: The Tannery, Level 2 is sold by the blueprint vendor at your Garrison once you reach level 96 or once you complete your Talador Outpost. You can buy it with 750 Gold. You can also buy it from the blueprint vendor in Ashran without restrictions with an Outpost Building Assembly Notes Icon Outpost Building Assembly Notes, which can only be obtained twice, once when questing in Gorgrond and once when questing in the Spires of Arak. so the purpose of this Below, you will find the Alliance and Horde vendors.

Vendor Faction Location Cost
Sparz Boltwist Alliance Garrison, next to Architect Table 750 Gold
Kinkade Jakobs Alliance Ashran, next to Flightmaster 1x Outpost Building Assembly Notes Icon Outpost Building Assembly Notes
Rezlak Horde Garrison, next to Architect Table 750 Gold
Torgg Flexington Horde Ashran, next to Flightmaster 1x Outpost Building Assembly Notes Icon Outpost Building Assembly Notes

3.3. Unlocking the Tannery, Level 3

Garrison Blueprint: The Tannery, Level 3 Icon Garrison Blueprint: The Tannery, Level 3 is a reward from completing the Working More Orders Icon Working More Orders achievement, which requires you to complete 250 Work Orders at your Garrison. This achievement is account-wide.

Once you complete the achievement, the blueprint is not directly handed over to you. You still need to buy it from Sparz Boltwist (Alliance) or Rezlak (Horde) for 1,000 Gold.

4. Work Orders

Work Orders are unlocked with your Tannery Level 1 and allow you to create Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leathers. A Work Order takes 4 hours to complete and transforms 5x Raw Beast Hide Icon Raw Beast Hide into 1x Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leather (2x with a level 100 follower assigned to the Tannery). This means that you can complete a maximum of 6 Work Orders per day for a total yield of 6 to 12 Burnished Leathers.

4.1. Unlocking Work Orders

When you first build the Tannery on a character, the resident Leatherworker at the building gives you Your First Leatherworking Work Order. To complete it, talk to the Leatherworker's Assistant and give the required 5x Raw Beast Hide Icon Raw Beast Hide. The small box outside the Tannery should activate immediately and you can loot the Leatherworking Work Order Icon Leatherworking Work Order that you need to turn in to complete the quest. Doing so rewards you with 5x Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leathers.

4.2. Increasing Yield

After upgrading the Tannery to Level 2, you can assign a follower with the Leatherworking Icon Leatherworking trait to work at the Tannery. The higher the level of your follower, the higher the chance that the Work Order will generate 2 Burnished Leathers instead of only 1. With a level 100 follower, you are guaranteed to get 2 Burnished Leathers.

While working at the Tannery, your follower receives experience for every Work Order completed.

4.3. Increasing Queue Size

You can queue up to a certain number of Work Orders, depending on your Tannery's level (7 at Level 1, 14 at Level 2, 21 at Level 3).

Having a Storehouse Level 3 increases the maximum number of Work Orders by 15, which means a maximum of 22 Work Orders at Level 1, 29 at Level 2, and 36 at Level 3.

Being able to queue more Work Orders does not increase your yield, but it does allow you to let more time pass before you have to go back to the Tannery to refill your queue of Work Orders.

4.4. Cost Comparison Between Work Orders and Leatherworking Recipe

Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leather costs 20x Raw Beast Hide Icon Raw Beast Hide and 10x Gorgrond Flytrap Icon Gorgrond Flytrap, and produces between 4 and 10 Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leathers, depending on your Leatherworking skill. Below level 600, you only produce 4. Between level 600 and 700 the yield slowly increases to reach 10 at level 700.

Work Orders cost 5x Raw Beast Hide Icon Raw Beast Hide and produce between 1 and 2 Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leathers. With no follower or a level 90 follower, you produce only 1. The closer your follower is to 100, the higher the chance that the yield will be 2. With a follower level 100, you always produce 2.

The cheapest of the two methods is Burnished Leather Icon Burnished Leather, because getting 10x Gorgrond Flytrap Icon Gorgrond Flytrap every day is very easy with a Herb Garden. If your follower is much closer to level 100 than your Leatherworking skill is to level 700, then Work Orders may work better. In any case, in our experience, Raw Beast Hides were always hard to come by, compared to Gorgrond Flytrap.

5. Resident Leatherworker

The Leatherworker at the Tannery interacts with you in one of two ways, depending on whether or not you have the Leatherworking profession.

5.1. For Leatherworkers

Buying the Draenor Leatherworking recipes from the Leatherworker in your Tannery is the only way to obtain them. Each recipe costs a number of Secret of Draenor Leatherworking Icon Secrets of Draenor Leatherworking. You can make one of these items every day using the Secrets of Draenor Leatherworking Icon Secrets of Draenor Leatherworking Leatherworking recipe, which costs 5x Raw Beast Hide Icon Raw Beast Hide.
