    Guide : Professions (Skinning & Leatherworking)

    [::::::::::::::::::::Skinning Guide 1-300::::::::::::::::::::]

    You can use it as a fast track guide. Just ignore the "Your level" bit. I would seriously suggest that you wait untill your level 50+ before trying this though, as it'll will takes you ages to complete at lower levels (unless of course you have a couple of level 50+ friends who dont mind grinding mobs for you to skin). I've tried to list mobs that should be yellow or orange for your skinning level. If they are green, move onto the next zone listed.

    I would also recommend that you take a look at Blessyou's more detailed skinning guide, which can be found here http://forums-en.wow-europe.com/thread.aspx?fn=wow-tradeskills-en&t=31651&s=new&tmp=1#new

    Please note that even if a mob is red/orange to you, that this DOES NOT guarantee that you'll get a skill up. It's more likely, but not to be expected everytime.

    Notes:
    In general I have tried to keep as much as possible to the main normal leather types, light, medium, heavy, thick and rugged. This is because it always easier to buy them on the auction house, whereas other ingredients are more difficult to obtain, and therefore more expensive. I haven't mentioned the ingredients that can be bought from vendors, since they are easy to obtain. I ran into trouble around the 180 mark, where most recipes require extra ingredient and I bought whatever had the cheapest buyout on the AH to getme there. Have a look to see what's cheapest at the time for you.

    I could have used a lot less thick leather and started on rugged armour kits at 250, but at that time the price of rugged leather was high enough for it to be worth using huge amounts of thick instead (probably because I did this the week before the Darkmoon Faire was in town). If you can get the rugged leather cheaper it's probably worth switching earlier (5 rugged leather Vs 15 thick leather).

    I have mostly kept to trainer taught recipes. The exceptions to this are the recipes gained through the leatherworking quests and the recipes for Wicked Leather Bracer and Headband, which I bought on the auction house for 5 and 2 gold respectively (you could substitute Wicked Leather Gauntlet for Wicked Leather Bracers. The recipe is vendor bought from leatherworking suppliers http://www.thotbott.com/?i=11493 it's limited supply though, and after 20 minutes of camping for it I gave up).

    I hope that this helps. I know that there are a few places where it could have been done a bit better but I don't think I made too many glaring errors.
