Skinning 1 to 300 Guide
(by Highlander on EU-Terenas)


You can use it as a fast track guide. Just ignore the "Your level" bit. I would seriously suggest that you wait until your level 50+ before trying this though, as it'll will takes you ages to complete at lower levels (unless of course you have a couple of level 50+ friends who don't mind grinding mobs for you to skin). I've tried to list mobs that should be yellow or orange for your skinning level. If they are green, move onto the next zone listed.
Before I start, you need to realize this is not a 1-80 leveling guide, it's just a guide that will help you get your skinning up quick, if you need a leveling guide, the best one is Joana's 1-90 WoW leveling Guide.

Please note that even if a mob is red/orange to you, that this DOES NOT guarantee that you'll get a skill up. It's more likely, but not to be expected every time.

Skinning 300 to 375
by Highlander on EU-Terenas


Going from 300 to 375 is dead easy, but its going to take you as long, if not longer than it took to go from 1 to 300. Even if your skinning orange mobs, you'll only get a skill up every 5-7 successful skins.

Realistically, you could level upto 375 on the mobs around Hellfire Peninsula, but it's not the most efficient way. The following is what I believe to be a more effecient way to level it up.

301 - 310
Hellboars around Hellfire Citadel in Hellfire Peninsula.

310 - 330
Ravagers around Falcon Watch in Hellfire Peninsula.

330 - 350
Talbuk's and Clefthoofs all over Nagrand. (you could just as easily continue skinning to 375 here if you want, as if wont take that much longer, than going to Netherstorm and skinning Drakes)

350 - 375
Netherdrakes around Stormspire in Netherstorm or around Netherwing Fields in Shadowmoon Valley or Raptors and Wind Serpents around Blades Edge Mountains.
