Leatherworking specialty: A definitive answer
Return to board index
This thread is intended to answer the following question:
"I want to go Leatherworking - based on my class, secondary profession, etc. what specialty should I choose?"
I'll start it off: My guild is willing to fund me "power leveling" LW from 1-375 (pay for mats, etc.). I am currently a herbalist/miner (375 each) and a level 70 combat sword rogue. I have full T4 and beyond.
What specialty in Leatherworking should I choose? I've read that elemental is the best suited for my class - though most of the SSC/TK/BT patterns seem to indicate that specialization isn't really a key factor anymore. However, for those of us wishing to "play it safe" (future proof the profession for our own sake) - I am hoping someone here will answer my question.
Note: Provide feedback on other classes/professions/etc. if relevant - the more info the better
Definitely go for Elemental Leatherworking. Tribal is more for Balance/Resto Druids and Dragonscale makes mail armor for Hunters and Shamans.
Elemental spec will be the best choice for a Rogue. Yes, in the broad picture, the spec doesn't matter, but the BoP sets that you can make are T4/T4.5 quality. Elemental's BoP is the Primalstrike set (
Also, you never know what Blizzard has in store for Leatherworking (and its various specs) in the upcoming expansion when the cap should be 450.
So, go Elemental so when the expansion hits, you'll already have the best spec of Leatherworking for your class.
