Powerleveling Guide for Classic Leatherworking

I've mapped out what I believe to be the best route to take in order to minimize wasted time and gold when leveling your Leatherworking profession.

This guide is based upon the following assumptions:

1. You have reached level 60 (or are close to it) and want to powerlevel your Leatherworking skill to 300 as quickly as possible.

2. You are only interested in trainer recipes and/or recipes that can be obtained with minimal effort.

3. You have an alt set aside to hold all of the materials you'll need to level up your Leatherworking. I recommend sending mats to your alt in the order provided below, and when you're ready, returning them in reverse order.

4. Whenever possible, you'll only want to craft items that are Orange or Yellow difficulty, for maximum skill gain. When required to craft Yellow and/or Green difficulty items, I've adjusted the required materials to account for less than 100% skill gain per item created. I've also listed alternate recipes and materials in red to give you additional options to consider.

Total Materials Needed to Get to 300 Leatherworking

Listed below are the materials you'll need and the order in which you should craft items to get to 300 Leatherworking as efficiently as possible. It's highly recommended that you farm some of these materials yourself and/or purchase them from the auction house over a span of several days, because your need for certain items (Light Leather, Thick Leather, Rugged Leather, etc.) will most likely surpass the available supply on the AH at any given time.

Light Leather 275
Light Hide 20
Medium Hide 25
Heavy Hide 20
Heavy Leather 220
Thick Leather 539
Rugged Leather 360

Recipes you may want to acquire before you start (Alt recipes in red)

Fine Leather Boots (Check AH for the World Drop recipe)
Raptor Hide Belt (Alliance) (Androd Fadran, Arathi Highlands) - Limited Supply (1)
