Notes:
In general I have tried to keep as much as possible to the main normal leather types, light, medium, heavy, thick and rugged. This is because it always easier to buy them on the auction house, whereas other ingredients are more difficult to obtain, and therefore more expensive. I haven’t mentioned the ingredients that can be bought from vendors, since they are easy to obtain. I ran into trouble around the 180 mark, where most recipes require extra ingredient and I bought whatever had the cheapest buyout on the AH to get me there. Have a look to see what’s cheapest at the time for you.

I could have used a lot less thick leather and started on rugged armour kits at 250, but at that time the price of rugged leather was high enough for it to be worth using huge amounts of thick instead (probably because I did this the week before the Darkmoon Faire was in town). If you can get the rugged leather cheaper it’s probably worth switching earlier (5 rugged leather Vs 15 thick leather).

I have mostly kept to trainer taught recipes. The exceptions to this are the recipes gained through the leatherworking quests and the recipes for Wicked Leather Bracer and Headband, which I bought on the auction house for 5 and 2 gold respectively (you could substitute Wicked Leather Gauntlet for Wicked Leather Bracers. The recipe is vendor bought from leatherworking suppliers link it’s limited supply though, and after 20 minutes of camping for it I gave up).

    When you create a leatherworking Item it will go from orange to yellow to green to grey. Grey means no skill rising. You cant make 20 x wicked leather bracers without it turning grey.

    Really helpful, I’m at 279 and I’m waiting for some cheap Rugged Leather to turn up on AH (Cheap on my realm) and then I’ll be at 300. I guess I’ll have to find my way to 275 =/.
