Skinning-Burning Crusade Classic

In this World of Warcraft guide everything revolves around Burning Crusade Classic Skinning and how to level it.

Outland Skinning Trainer

Burning Crusade Classic Skinning can be learned from the following trainers:

  • WoW Allianz Jelena Nightsky – Honor Hold, Hellfire Peninsula [54.5, 62.2]
  • WoW Horde Moorutu – Thrallmar, Hellfire Peninsula [56.3, 38.5]
  • Seymour – Lower City, Shattrath [63.6, 66.0]

After learning Master Skinning, all you need is a Skinning Knife and you’re good to go.

Skinning: 1-300

To get your profession to 300 you can use our Classic Skinning Guide.

Skinning: 300-375

300-310

Knothide Leather Scraps and Knothide Leather

Starting in Outland on the Hellfire Peninsula, you are looking for areas that are owned by Helboars (Starving Helboar or Hulking Helboar). You can find them northwest of Zeth’Gor and between Falcon Watch and the Ruins of Sha’Naar.

310-330

Knothide Leather

You can keep skinning on Hellfire Peninsula up until skill level 330, but you need other NPCs to skin. You are now looking for any type of Ravager: Quillfang Ravager (between Hellfire Peninsula and Zangarmarsh), Razorfang Ravager (between Hellfire Peninsula and Terokkar) or Thornfang Ravager around Falcon Watch.

330-350

Knothide Leather and Thick Clefthoof Leather

When you have reached 330, the fastest way forward is to head to Nagrand. There you can skin ClefthoofClefthoof Bull and Aged Clefthoof for their Knothide Leather and Thick Clefthoof Leather.

350-375

Knothide Leather and Nether Dragonscales

To max your skinning skill, head to the eastern edge of Netherstorm (Nether Drake and Nether Dragon) or south of Death’s Door in the Blade’s Edge Mountains (Lesser Nether Drake as well as Nether Whelp) and skin Nether Drakes.

Skinning Equipment

There are some items that can improve or buff your Skinning ability. First, of course, you can use the Enchant Gloves – Skinning. And then there are two notable weapons that can be used as skinning knives AND improve your skill:

High Level Leathers, Hides and Scales

There are materials that can only be skinned from a specific type of NPC.
The following list covers these Burning Crusade-specific leather, hide and scales.

Thick Clefthoof Leather

Thick Clefthoof Leather is a unique kind of leather that is required to craft endgame gear.
It is skinned from Clefthooves and Elekks in Nagrand and not difficult to farm.

Thick Clefthoof Leather is required to craft:

Fel Hide

Fel Hide is skinned from elite demons in dungeons, but it can also be skinned from NPCs in the open world.
Kill and skin Artifact Seeker and Warp Chaser around Arklon Ruins and Mana Forge Duro in Netherstorm.
An alternative in the open world are Daggertail Lizards in Blade’s Edge Mountains.

Fel Hide is required to craft:

Fel Scales

Fel Scales are used for crafting mail gear and can easily be skinned from various types of Basilisks throughout the Blade’s Edge Mountains.

Fel Scales are required to craft:

Nether Dragonscales

Nether Dragonscales are skinned from Drakes and Wyrms in Outland, especially in Netherstorm or Blade’s Edge Mountains.

Nether Dragonscales are required to craft:

Cobra Scale

Cobra Scales can only be skinned from Coilskar Cobras, Shadow Serpents or Twilight Serpents.
Two of these NPCs spawn in the North of Shadowmoon Valley, making this the recommended farmspot.
Nagrand on the Twilight Ridge is an alternative farmspot.

Cobra Scales are required to craft:
