WotLK Classic Skinning Leveling Guide How To Get 1-450

Durotar, Dun Morogh (1 – 75)

Visit any Skinning Trainer, and learn Skinning Apprentice. I recommend Balthus Stoneflayer in Ironforge or Thuwd in Orgrimmar. You can also walk up to a guard in any city and ask where the Skinning trainer is, then the trainer will be marked with a red flag on your map.

  • Don’t forget to buy a Skinning Knife! Leatherworking Supply vendors usually sell it near your trainer or any General/Trade goods vendor. This knife does NOT have to be equipped, but you can’t skin mobs unless you have one in your bag.
  • If you enchant your gloves with Formula: Enchant Gloves – Skinning, then you can skin an enemy 1 level higher than you normally would be able to do so.
  • Please note that even if a mob is red/orange to you, it DOES NOT guarantee that you’ll get a skill up! It’s more likely, but not to be expected every time.

You can learn the Master Skinning skill from these trainers:

  • Horde: Moorutu in Hellfire Peninsula at Thrallmar. He’s near the inn, hiding behind a mammoth bone.
  • Alliance: Jelena Nightsky in Hellfire Peninsula at Honor Hold. She’s in the inn, right before the stairs.
  • Both factions can also learn it from Seymour in Shattrath City.

Start with skinning the Starving Helboars around Zeth’gor until you reach 305. Once you reach 305, you can head to the next part and start skinning Deranged Helboars, and at around 310, you can head over to the next part to skin Razorfang Hatchlings and Razorfang Ravagers.
