When you start skinning you will notice that in your chat box is your skill in skining has increased to … ( a number will be here)

When you skill is at a certain level you will need to revisit a skinning trainer, visit the same one as before or recheck the list and visit the closet one to you.

You will need to revisit the trainer every so often when you skill is at a certain level see table below



Proficiency Level Required Skill range
Apprentice - 1 - 75
Journeyman - 50 - 150
Expert 10 125 - 225
Artisan 25 200 - 300
Master 40 275 - 375
Grand master 55 350 - 450
Illustrious 70 425

To help you know what will give you a skill advancement below is a colour code.

  • Red: Not skinnable.
  • Orange: Difficult to skin; high chance of increasing Skinning skill level.
  • Yellow: Moderately difficult to skin; moderate chance of increasing Skinning skill level.
  • Green: Easy to skin; low chance of increasing Skinning skill level.
  • Gray: Very easy to skin; no chance of increasing Skinning skill level.

There is also a formula you can use to see if a monster will give you a skill advancement divide your skill level by 5
Eg. 223 / 5 = 44.6
So in this scenario you would need to go for a 43- 44 mob to get a level up on your skinning
