Part 1. Druid Skinning Guide [ Level 10 ] [ 1-85 ][ Alliance & Horde ]


This guide is intended for level 10 or over.
First things first get the skinning skill, and a knife.
Note: Pick up leather working if you want to convert the ruined leather scraps to light leather *etc*

Next go to Moonglade and here you will find plenty of critters, rabbits, and deers. The squirrels are not skinnable so don’t bother killing them.

Note: You can also go to Darnassus *But it might be harder to go through all those buildings, but you can vendor that or Auction House it.

I personally did this at level 20, because it was easier since cat form is much faster then hitting as a bear or humanoid form, but you could’ve also spammed moonfire, but you would lose mana quick. Or you could’ve had a higher level kill the critters, and you would skin.

I skinned to 9x in Moonglade.

Alliance Guide
For those Horde players I’m afraid I have no idea where to skin because I only have a 13 Tauren Druid (Keldilina of Barthilias) with 8x skinning, but I think you can skin outside Thunderbluff.

Moving on you can go to Westfall now and here is where the fun begins, start killing bores and anything that is skinnable, and get it up to 1xx , and learn your new next skinning rank.


Note: Please help me on my first guide since I forgot all of this, and I can’t remember anything. : P

Just post comments.

    Some quick tips mate, useSome quick tips mate, use [hr ] (without the space) to create horizontal lines to separate sections of the guide. At the moment I’m guessing you’ve used _ multiple times.

    Also to create links for items so they pop up when you mouse over them use [url =…]Item Name[/url].

    Hope this helps and good luck finishing this.

    I think this has theI think this has the potential to be a great guide. Although, until then, put it back as a work in progress!

    I am working on a Shaman gear guide, which doesn’t usually take too long. Even though, I’ve kept it as a work in progress to be sure that I have it perfected before releasing it.

    Also with my Tauren leveling guide, I worked on it for about three weeks before releasing it. This guide looks like it’s been worked on for about 15 minutes.

    One more thing, if you don’t know anything about skinning I don’t think you should be working on it. Let someone that has maxed out their skinning and knows enough about it to release the guide.

    Sorry to drag that on so harsh, but good luck finishing this guide.

    I am 450 in skinning and II am 450 in skinning and I did not go to dalaran for training.
    The gm trainer is in Valiance keepe in Borean Tundra.

    I am just trying to help and I KNOW its hard to find all the spots to train stuff 🙂
    overall it was very fast to get skilled up in Northrend.

    If you want to make money low level AH learn leather working just to convert scraps to light leather.

    God only knows how bad I feel about the aliance druid starting area.
    I could never understand why they never went back and revamped all starting areas.

    good and bad.Hello Cloud,
    it was a great idea to link to an example guide.
    However, ( and you gave me the idea with this post ) it would be even better to link to a good guide for leveling a gathering skill on this site instead of a gold guide selling site.

    So, as a footnote to Cloud9, this is an example of a proper guide, wich you could use to make your skinning guide great 🙂

    Here is a good example onHere is a good example on how a good skinning guide looks like:

    Any by you saying: “Note: Please help me on my first guide since I forgot all of this, and I can’t remember anything. : P”
    You should probably not write a guide about this if you dont dont anything about Skinning.

    commentHello ryoke,

    with all regards to the attemt of writing a guide, wich is kool 🙂
    I fear this text misses that wich qualifies it as a guide, namely added value.
    All you seem to say in this guide is :
    – get leatherworking to convert scraps ( no extra info as to why, what are the added benefits f doing this, level sooner, cash, large amounts of these drops )

    – start in moonglade and start killing and skinning something else then critters since they are no use ( actually, the first few levels you can get by skinning rabbits )

    I to would suggest you place it back into work in progress.
    Make a list of where to go and loot wich letter from wich type of beasts and why. ( money value, usefullness of the leather to… , kill/skin speed reasons(aka leveling speed ), concentration of targets ( many close together for higher speed ) and maybe even a route to take per zone.

    Why would one be a skinner, what are the benefits etcetera.

    That way people will learn more about skinning and your guide will tell them why to take skinning, how to best and why to level it etcetera.

    Unfortunately at this moment, the guide tells us almost nothing at all.
    And memory might not be the best way to start for making a guide 😛

    The Name :
    You name it a druid skinning guide, but it looks like you attempted to create a general skinning guide and just named it druid guide beceause you are a druid. Unless you have information exclusively or at least mostly applying for druids, please also name accordingly. Aka, Skinning guide 1-350

    Please do not get me wrong. The aove are points you might consider before relaunching this guide. I do hope you keep it going and make a great guide from it wich i woudl love to read. And i really do appreciate your attempt to make one, wich is better then i have done ( not posted a guide myself, somehow i cant manage to finish one that makes me think has added value ). So cudo’s to you for doing it.

    But best would be, in my humble opinion, to take t back into works in progress, finish it and then post.

    Greetings, and i do hope i will see the guide soon 🙂

    I were about to post aI were about to post a comment here about the guide, but I thought “Poor Ryoke might get offended”, so therefore I did not comment the guide, but I guess this comment makes it pretty obvious what I would comment anyway 🙂

    I would highly recommend youI would highly recommend you switch this back to Work in Progress setting until it is complete. At the moment, I’d have to rate this as poor. I would wait until I had a finished product to release it. And honestly, I would think hard and evaluate whether this is really a good guide for you to write – if you can’t remember the details, it’s probably best you work on something else.

    A few other things: First, use some text formatting to make this easier to read. Use [url=]Jame’s guide writing guide[/url] to learn how. Second, this should be in the [url=]Leatherworking and Skinning[/url] section, not the main tradeskill category as it currently is.
