Butchering Guide 1 – 75 (Defiant)

Along the southern shore of Silverwood there are plenty of Thrashjaws (Crocs), Razorbacks (Pigs), and Silvermane (Wolves) to Butcher for leather. Start at the very southwest tip of Silverwood and move east and then north up the coast to get to 75.

Butchering Guide 115 – 150

Scarwood Reach or Scarlet Gorge is both a great place to level 110+ in Butchering. Personally, we had better luck Butchering Wolves, Cats and Boars, Basilisk, Drakes and more in the northwestern half of Scarwood Reach.

In Moonshade Highlands stay along the water in the middle to Butcher the beasts around the rivers. If you start on the west most river you can follow it easily east to the shore and finish up with some Cloven Stonerams. You can actually get to ~190 here but it is quicker to leave for Iron Pine Peak or Droughtlands.

Butchering Guide 270 – 300

Daevako provided an amazing spot on Ember Isle in the Abundant Wilds.  She/He said, “for butchering 270-300 the beach on ember isle is awesome. In the Abundant wilds area, lots of gators and warthogs to kill…upon further discovery of the island if you continue up that river after killing the hogs and gators, there’s a lot more to kill going into Atia.”

  1. for butchering 270-300 the beach on ember isle is awesome. In the Abundant wilds area, lots of gators and warthogs to kill.

  2. upon further discovery of the island if you continue up that river after killing the hogs and gators, there’s a lot more to kill going into Atia.

  3. Great guide man – thanks a bunch for the concise info!

  4. I love your guide, and I have a suggestion that may be helpful to some people:
    It would be great if you named the type of item harvested. For example, you could add this last line of information… and Silvermane (Wolves) to Butcher for .
    This would be helpful for a quick ref when searching for a place to harvest a particular metal, cloth, leather, etc.
    Thanks! :-)

  5. For some reason part of my message is missing :-0
    It should read: to Butcher for soft leather, thin leather, and medium leather for level 1-75.

    Thanks

    • Agreed and thank you! At the bottom of the Butcher guide there is a graph that shows the profession and beast level per hide. We’re also working on farming guides that would be for the specific hides.

  6. Nice guide … By the way, Ardent Domain near Turnis River Bunker is the BEST way to farm for STRIPED leather

  7. For 310 to 335, a good zone is right in front of Necropolis, you can butcher the Riptooth, thus accelerating the process of leveling the butchering some.
