Check this guide for all the Leatherworking quests in Legion!

World of Warcraft: Legion decided to mix things up a bit and made quest lines to unlock important crafting and gathering skills. There are also different ranks for each recipe/skill to improve how you gather or craft.

There are many quests, they are available in different areas, and different times along the quest line. I’m going to list all the Leatherworking quests, what you have to do, and more.

This guide will go over everything you need to know about Leatherworking in Legion including:

  • How to start Leatherworking in Legion Where to go to begin your crafting journey.
  • All Leatherworking Quests – All the Leatherworking quests available in Legion.

How to Start Leatherworking in Legion

You can start the Legion Leatherworking quests in Dalaran.

  • Go to the Legendary Leathers shop in the Magus Commerce Exchange.
  • Namha Moonwater will have the quest and be your main quest giver.
  • It is recommended that you also have skinning, or at least a reliable way to get all the skins you need.

Once you get your first quest, “Skin Deep”, you are ready to begin.

All Leatherworking Quests

I’m going to list each quest, where you get them, what you have to do, and the reward.

Some quests will start from the Trainer and lead to other NPCs. Others will start from either the Leather or Mail armor expert in Legendary Leathers in Dalaran.
