WoD changed the way we make gold and introduced new opportunities. You can sign up right now for the Secret Gold Guide and have access to weekly gold tips and tons of bonus material.

 

Draenor Leatherworking Level 1 – 700

  1. Loot the Tattered Frostwolf Shroud (Horde) or Dirty Note (Alliance).
  2. Complete the 2 quests (Horde) or 3 quests (Alliance).
  3. You will now have Draenor Leatherworking and Garrison Blueprint: The Tannery, Level 1.
    • Draenor Leatherworking will upgrade your max Leatherworking skill to 700 and teach you to make Secrets of Draenor Leatherworking (Tannery currency).
    • The Tannery Blueprints enables you to build a Leatherworking items in your Garrison Tannery.
    • if you're Horde you also get the special Heavy Frostwolf Shroud that summons a snow storm!

*Another option for Leatherworking is to buy Draenor Leatherworking in Warspear or Stormshield for 100g. This will increase your max Leatherworking skill to 700 but it will not provide the Garrison Blueprint to build your own Tannery.

 

Recipes to Level from 1 – 600

Draenor Leatherworking provides the Burnished Leather recipe as well as basic Leatherworking recipes that give 5 skill points to level 600. If you’re new to Leatherworking and 90+ then you can create any of the recipes below over and over until you hit 600 in Leatherworking.

 

Recipes to Level from 600 – 700

We suggest doing the following to level you up to 700.

  1. Create 1 Secrets of Draenor Leatherworking per day for 20 days. Make these first because the recipe goes green at 650.
  2. Create 1 Burnished Leather with your recipe per day for 20 days.
  3. Work Orders every day for your Burnished Leather Supply.
  4. Create 20 Leather Refurbishing Kit.

In about 20 days you should level to 700 unless you have a follower assigned to your Tannery. You can also create other items other than the Refurbishing Kit but the ratio of skill points to Burnished Leathers is not as good.

Approximate mats needed are:

It breaks down like this:

  • 20 Secrets of Draenor Leatherworking = 20 skill points
  • 20 Burnished Leather = 20 skill points
  • 20 Leather Refurbishing Kit = 60 skill points

 

Garrison Building: The Tannery

  • Level 1 allows the production of Leatherworking items and 7 work orders.
  • Level 2 allows followers with the Leatherworking trait to work there, providing a bonus and doubles work order production to 14.
  • Level 3 allows 21 work orders.

Work Orders convert 5 Raw Beast Hide to 1 Burnished Leather in 4 hours.  This increases to 2 if you have a follower in your Gem Boutique.
