Leatherworking Power Leveling Guide 1-300

Leatherworking Power Leveling Guide

This guide is intended to help you level Leatherworking as quickly as possible. Recipes in bold are considered the best option for that particular range. The recipes chosen have been optimized to use the lowest amount of ingredients. Occasionally recipes with the more common materials are included as an alternative. In situations where one crafted item could be worked into another crafted item, I have favored that recipe to reduce overall component usage.

In any situation where there are multiple choices you are free to select the recipe that is easier for you. There are a few areas where the only leveling recipe is yellow difficulty (likely skill point but not guaranteed) rather than orange difficulty (guaranteed skill point). This usually increases the needed ingredients, something you might want to plan for when shopping. I have included ranges in the materials column to indicate where overages might occur. In particular, when a recipe becomes yellow to you I've doubled the materials needed for that portion of the skill points. Your mileage may vary so consider with stocking extra leather and selling the excess later.

Good Luck!
