Home World of Warcraft Professions Dragonflight Skinning Guide

The big update in WoW has happened. Dragonflight presents a redesign of the professions with many additions and changes. This guide is dedicated to the Skinning profession, so you will find all the information you need to learn this profession.

Dragonflight Skinning Bonuses & Benefits

Skinning is easy: you kill beast-like enemies and then skin them to get your loot. There are many kinds of leather, hides, and scales that you can gather in the Dragon Islands. A small list of bonuses that Skinning provides you with:

  • The most important thing about the Skinning profession is that it is cumulative and beneficial to Leatherworkers. The resources that you can collect with Skinning, such as leather and furs, will always be in demand by other players, which means that there will always be a demand for your goods at auctions and you can earn gold from it;
  • While the basic gameplay of Skinning remains largely unchanged in Dragonflight, a new consumable has been added that is designed to give Skinners a new form of play: Creature Baits. Skinners will be able to create and place Creature Baits to lure elusive creatures out of hiding;
  • A useful new recipe: Bottled Pheromonespull mobs towards them for easy Skinning. It’s not yet known how long it lasts, but it’s already a fantastic quality of life-benefit to reduce downtime while gathering.

Dragonflight Skinning Changes

Let’s take a look at the changes to the Skinning profession that came with the Dragonflight update:

  • Crafting Orders – is a new system where you can request to order an item in two ways: through a local player or through an NPC;
  • Crafting Tables – a place where you can experiment with new crafting recipes;
  • Item Quality – the higher the level of the item, the more powerful the item will be after creation;
  • Recrafting Items – if you have created an item of poor quality, you can use your new knowledge to remake that item to make it better;
  • New Profession gear – not only gives bonuses but also saves space in the inventory;
  • Gathering Stats – this is a new addition to the resource gather system. Finesse gives you the ability to gather additional resources, as well as a slight increase in gathering speed. Deftness increases your gathering rate compared to Finesse. Perception gives you a much better chance of getting additional rare materials when gathering. Increase these characteristics with professional equipment and specialization of your profession;
  • Skinning now has 3 specializations: Tanning is represented by talents that allow you to gather raw materials, Harvesting is represented by talents that allow you to gather special materials from creatures, Bait Crafter is represented by talents that allow you to craft decoys.

To delve deeper into these issues, check out our Dragonflight Professions guide for a more detailed description of all the changes that have taken place with the release of Dragonflight.
