Leatherworking

Credits to Lobotomy on EU-Frostmane and Highlander on EU-Terenas.

I wrote this Leatherworking leveling guide because I decided to level leatherworking on my hunter, and I wanted the most profitable leveling possible(not the fastest or cheapest, but I'll include some options for that too). Most of what you make can be put on AH, but some of it might also need to be disenchanted. To be able to disenchant the highest item you need 180 Enchanting, but a lvl 5 enchanter with 50 skill will be able to DE the lowest stuff.

Some parts might need a world drop or vendor bought recipe, see end of post to find out from where.

I've tried to only use skillups with orange recipies, but some places(5-10 skill points max) you might do a yellow recipe. If that causes you to use more mats, I'm sorry.

The leveling guide is divided into 4 parts:
1-150 with Low Mats(vendor), Max Profit(DE/AH), What I Did
150-205 with Low Mats and Nice Profit, Max profit(AH)
205-250 with Max Profit(Elemental), Dragonscale and Tribal

For more details about Leatherworking Specialisation, read this.
When it says Nightscape Headband/Tunic, it means you can choose. Tunics use 2 more Thick leather than Headbands, so if you're only disenchanting Headbands is the best, while if you're putting on AH a mix is better.

Wicked Leather Headband

301-310
Knothide Leather (5 x Knothide Leather Scraps) x 20 = 100 x Knothide Leather Scraps
N.B. make as many as it takes to get to 310. Your going to need around 725 Knothide leather, so you may aswell get the skill up points for this.

311-320
Thick Draenic Gloves (6 x Knothide Leather, 2 x Rune Thread) x 10

321-325
Scaled Draenic Gloves (8 x Knothide Leather, 1 x Fel Scales, 2 x Rune Thread) x 5

326-335
Heavy Knothide Leather (5 x Knothide Leather) x 90

336-340
Thick Draenic Boots (10 x Knothide Leather, 3 x Rune Thread) x 5

341-350
Scaled Draenic Boots (12 x Knothide Leather, 2 x Fel Scales, 3 x Rune Thread) x 10

N.B. as is common with all the professions now, getting from 350 to 375 is a huge pain. Trainers don't teach anything worthwhile, so the only way to do it, is via random world drop patterns or rep rewards. I'll use rep reward patterns in this guide.

351-365
For those with Scryers rep - Honoured:
Enchanted Felscale Gloves or Boots (4 x Heavy Knothide Leather, 10 x Fel Scales, 6 x Primal Mana) x 15

For those with The Consortium rep - Honored
Fel Leather Boots (10 x Heavy Knothide Leather, 8 x Fel Hide, 8 x Primal Shadow, 3 x Rune Thread) x 15

N.B. these last 10 points are going to cost you a LOT! (as if the last 15 didn't cost enough!) The materials required are fairly insane and so is the rep requirement, but at the moment I don't see a better way of levelling up.

365-370
You need to be Friendly with Cenarion Expedition for the next part:
Heavy Clefthoof Boots (4 x Heavy Knothide Leather, 20 x Thick Clefthoof Leather¹, 4 x Primal Earth, 2 x Rune Thread) x 5

Alternatively, if your Exalted with Thrallmar or Honor Hold for the next part.
Nethercobra Leg Armor (4 x Heavy Knothide Leather, 4 x Cobra Scales, 8 x Primal Air, 1 x Primal Nether) x 5

Alternatively, if your exalted with The Sha'tar:
Drums of Battle (2 Heavy Knothide Leather, 1 x Primal Fire, 1 Primal Earth) x 5

¹Thick Clefthoof Leather is easier to obtain than Cobra Scales, so I would recommend you try to get CE friendly rep.

N.B. any of the above three could take you to 375, but the material requirement makes for a LOT of farming, as those last 5 points can mean making another 20-30 items.

371-375
Your either going to have to make random world drop epics here with lots of insane material requirements OR go and get exalted with Keepers of Time.
Seeing as the epics are random world drop patterns, I'll go with Keepers of Time rep rewards. You'll need to be level 66 to start your Keepers of Time rep and spend a LOT of time in The Caverns of Time.

Drums of Panic (2 x Heavy Knothide Leather, 2 x Primal Shadow) x 5


Approximate Materials Required
With Scryers Rep
100 x Knothide Leather Scraps
725 x Knothide Leather (+30 if you went CE rep)
75 x Rune Thread (+10 if you went CE rep)
175 x Fel Scales
90 x Primal Mana
20 x Cobra Scales (if your Thrallmar or Honor Hold exalted) or 100 x Thick Clefthoof Leather (if you went with CE rep)
40 x Primal Air (if your Thrallmar or Honor Hold exalted) or 20 x Primal Earth (if you went with CE rep)
5 x Primal Nether (Dont need these if you go with CE or Sha'tar rep)
10 x Primal Shadow

N.B. if you went with Sha'tar rep at 365, then you'll need 10 less Heavy Knothide Leather, 40 less Primal Air, 5 Primal Earth and 5 less Primal Nether. Gets complicated, dont it?

With The Consortium Rep
100 x Knothide Leather Scraps
1175 x Knothide Leather (+30 if you went CE rep)
120 x Fel Hide
120 x Rune Thread (+10 if you went CE rep)
25 x Fel Scales
20 x Cobra Scales (if your Thrallmar or Honor Hold exalted) or 100 x Thick Clefthoof Leather (if you went with CE rep)
40 x Primal Air (if your Thrallmar or Honor Hold exalted) or 20 x Primal Earth (if you went with CE rep)
5 x Primal Nether (Dont need these if you go with CE or Sha'tar rep)
130 x Primal Shadow
N.B. if you went with Sha'tar rep at 365, then you'll need 10 less Heavy Knothide Leather, 40 less Primal Air, 5 Primal Earth and 5 less Primal Nether.

In the last five levels up to (365 for drums) you had better keep on making the Heavy Knothide Armor Kit. It procced almost all the time I made one... despite it was green.

BTW DING:D lvl 365:D Thanks guys for all the help really!
Special thanks Silver, Lys, Darktuon and the Guildbank:)
