Guide To Leatherworking Recipes
You can produce some great equipment but for that, you need to progress through 300 levels. Towards the end of it only you will be able to do get the required leather and hides to create them. We have enlisted the steps to take you right there in a breeze.
However, you can buy them too at the Auction House, although that is going to be pretty expensive for you.
In the first place, you will require some materials in some quantities to keep leveling up towards the 300-level mark. We have enlisted them along with their quantities in the following:
- 57 Ruined Leather Scraps
- 470 Light Leather
- 275 Medium Leather
- 20 Heavy Hide
- 195 Heavy Leather
- 450 Thick Leather
- 475 Rugged Leather
