Our WOW Classic Leatherworking Guide features the complete procedure to obtain the maximum leatherworking and use it in the armor.

Looking forward to making your very own armor? You can make your own armor now instead of spending gold unnecessarily! Leatherworking is all about that. It is a great profession and with the help of it, you can create armor, armor kits, and much more. If you are wondering how to do it then it is the right place for you.

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

Trainers for Leatherworking

To begin with your journey in Leatherworking, you need to be an Apprentice first. This can be done after you reach level 5 and speak to a Leatherworking Trainer.

You will find them spread throughout the game in all the major cities. If you are finding it hard to locate a Trainer then the City Guard could be the one from whom you can seek help. The Guard will tell you where to look for the Trainer.
