Classic WoW Wiki

Leather can mean a couple of things in World of Warcraft: Classic:

  1. A type of ingredient usually gathered with the Skinning profession from a skinnable corpse, typically a beast or dragonkin. These items can usually be used directly by the Leatherworking profession without prior processing or treatment. Leatherworkers can also combine lighter leathers into heavier ones, even combining ruined leather scraps into usable leathers. Leather is closely related to hides, although hides are rarer and must often be prepared for use.
  2. A type of armor used by the less fragile, but more agile classes. Generally better than Cloth armor for defense.
