Nagrand is one of the best zones for farming Knothide Leather in both TBC Classic and retail WoW. That’s because it holds a copious amount of beasts. The best spot for Knothide Leather is the same in both World of Warcraft versions. However, in TBC classic, the monster levels range at this spot is 65-66, while in retail TBC, it is a clean 30, due to level crunching. The leather drop ratios are also different.
Nonetheless, if you want to farm some Knothide Leather in TBC Classic, in this post we’ll point out everything you need to know.
- Minimum character level 65
- Minimum skinning skill 335
- Skinning knife
Where to go:
The spot is pretty popular. It’s the area west of Skysong Lake, at around (52, 28).
For Horde players, it’s easier to get to this spot. Just fly to Garadar (56, 36) and the spot is right outside the camp, to the northwest. If you play Alliance, you’ll have to fly to Telaar (51, 67) in Nagrand, and from there go north until you reach the location at (52, 28).
What to do:
The beasts you’re looking for are:
Kill as many as you can and skin them for their Knothide Leather and Knothide Leather Scraps. The Clefthoof mobs drop Thick Clefthoof Leather as well. You’ll also get Talbuk Venison and Clefthoof Meat from them, and Oshu’gun Crystal Powder Sample.
As we’ve already mentioned above, the leather drop ratio is different in TBC Classic than in retail TBC. In other words, you’ll get a similar amount of scraps and leather, while in retail TBC, you’ll get consistently more leather than scraps. However, the drop for Knothide Leather is still fairly decent here.
After one hour of skinning beasts in TBC Classic Nagrand, I got the following loot:
- Knothide Leather x 177
- Knothide Leather Scraps x 141
- Thick Clefthoof Leather x 6
- Talbuk Venison x 105
- Clefthoof Meat x 10
- Green Item x 7
Also, by selling all the trash (gray) loot, I got approx. 40-50g.
If you have Leatherworking, you can turn all the Knothide Leather Scraps into Knothide Leather. You can also turn a portion of your Knothide Leather into Heavy Knothide Leather. Sometimes this can be sold for higher profits.
The Talbuk Venison is usually cheap, but you can get quite consistent profits if you cook it into Spicy Hot Talbuk. You’ll need a minimum 325 TBC Cooking Skill for this, though. However, the recipe is BoP and drops from daily cooking quests, but still, in case you have it, it can be quite a plus.
Although we’ve recommended a minimum character level of 65 for this spot, it’s best to come here with a level 70+ character so that all the monsters are green and easier to kill. More kills, more leather.
