General Information

Leatherworking allows you to create Leather and Mail bind on equip gear. Some of this gear is best in slot for a very long time, such as the Devilsaur Set for physical damage dealers, and Hide of the Wild for healers. In this guide, we focus on these and other important items that this profession offers.

1. Introduction

Leatherworking allows you to create some of the most popular and powerful Leather and Mail gear in WoW Classic. Many of these pieces feature prominently in our best in slot lists for the classes who can wear them, such as the infamous Devilsaur Set.

Most of Leatherworking's items are bind on equip gear pieces. The profession mostly requires skins, such as Rugged Leather Icon Rugged Leather, to craft. Its expensive to level and maintain it through the Auction House alone, so pairing it with Skinning can be helpful, allowing you to farm some of the materials yourself.

2. Leatherworking Trainers and Where to Find Them

You can learn Leatherworking from any Leatherworking trainer, which are found in capital cities and also near starting zones. When you arrive at a major city, you can ask any city guard for directions, and pick the Leatherworking trainer option. This will mark its location on your map, allowing you to easily find them and get your Leatherworking skills up to date.

3. How to Quickly Level Leatherworking from 1 to 300

For leveling Leatherworking quickly, focus on crafting orange items, which guarantee a skill up per craft. If it is too expensive to craft orange items, craft yellow items, instead, as those often give a skill up when crafted.

Green patterns only rarely grant skill points, making them only worth it if they are extremely cheap relative to alternatives. Gray patterns never give skill points.

5. Notable Leatherworking Items

While Leatherworking has a lot of craftable items, there are only three extremely valuable ones: the two pieces of the Devilsaur Set and Hide of the Wild.

5.1. Devilsaur Set

The Devilsaur Set is composed of two items:

When the set is combined, you also gain 2% Hit Rating, which combined with the substantial physical DPS stats on the pieces makes them best in slot items for every physical DPS class for a very long time.

5.2. Hide of the Wild

Pattern: Hide of the Wild Icon Pattern: Hide of the Wild is every healer's best in slot cape before raids, and even during early raiding, as it sports an impressive amount of healing for a cloak while still having Intellect and Stamina!

Unfortunately it will only be available through the chest that is unlocked by completing the mini-quest with the goblin in Dire Maul North. Meaning that it will be uncraftable until Phase 2 of WoW Classic.
