Leatherworking offers many different gear options throughout all Phases ofTBC Classic. In addition to gear, it is a great raiding profession for the variousparty-wide drum buffs it can offer. In this guide, we will show you all thedifferent gear available to Leatherworkers, how to train the profession,unlock its different specializations, and many other things.

1.

Introduction

Leatherworking is most commonly used by both Leather and Mail wearers as thegear crafted through it is very strong, especially in the early gearing process.In addition to the gear that players can make, it is commonly used a raidingprofession for the multiple different Drums available. These Drums can be quitestrong when multiple Leatherworkers are in the same party and use their Drums ina specified order.

Leatherworking is best combined with Skinning, as this willallow you to farm many of the needed materials yourself. It is highly recommendedto have Skinning when increasing your Leatherworking skill level, even if it ison an alt character. It takes a rather large quantity of leather to finish thisprofession off, so being able to farm some of it can greatly help with reducingyour gold spent on the auction house.

You may also find that Leatherworking can be used to complement yourgoldmaking in TBC Classic. For more information on this among other methodsinvolving alternative professions, please see our separate guide on the topic:
