Darraxus Gold Tips #2: Leatherworking
Leatherworking. It sucks. Skinning levels much faster that LW and unless you buy materials you have to spend extra time farming. That said, there are of course profit opportunities if you want to give it a shot.
1) Leg Armor: I think that leg armor has long been the money maker of leatherworkers everywhere. Every melee class and Hunters will be needing your leg enchants. They sell quickly, but are a very competetive market.
2) The leather shuffle. There are a lot of people that have made a decent bit of gold off of the leather shuffle. You turn savage leather into Heavy Savage Leather. Then you turn that a Hide. This may not work on all servers.
3) Level 78-79 Cataclysm green items. These are actually pretty good sellers that sell for above material price. I sold several of these for 125 gold each no problem. The items are good for level 80 twinks as well as people who need to upgrade their Heirlooms before heading into Cataclysm content.
Not my favorite profession, but there is still gold to be made!
