Best Leatherworking Specialization in TBC Classic

Choosing a specialization is pretty straightforward because every item created by specializations is Bind on Pickup, meaning only you can equip them. Every other item can be crafted and worn by every specialization. Even the Classic-era recipes have had their specialization requirement removed, and you can craft all of them with all three specializations. So, basically, you should choose a specializationbased on what your class and spec can use.

  • Resto and Balance Druids: Tribal
  • Rogues and Feral Druids: Elemental
  • Enhancement and Elemental Shamans: Dragonscale
  • Hunters can choose both Elemental or Dragonscale. Elemental will give you more damage, but you will have lower mana. Also, some people might not want to wear leather armor.

Full List of Recipes

Your Leatherworking Specialization trainers teach the recipes for each specialization. You can find the exact location of each trainer if you scroll down a bit in the guide.
