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