Heavy Desolate Leather farming guide

Good day to you and welcome to the newest Guide to Farming in World of Warcraft, brave fighters! We are now talking about skinning and how it functions in the Shadowlands and about the changes in content with the new continent of Oribos.

In this lesson, we'll take you on a tour of our favourite gathering routes and teach you some of our best farming techniques for Heavy Desolate Leather. You may be certain that following this guidance will enhance your farming efficiency and offer you with substantially more money or resources for your professions.

Leathers, hides, and bones in Shadowlands

However, first things first, you should know what you can get from skinning in Shadowlands. Overall, there are 5 different items – leathers, hides, and bones. These are:

Since we are now discussing the farming of a heavy leather you should know that the basic leathers come in heavy variations. These may be made by combining 10 basic leathers or skinned from particular species; however, we'll focus on farming them rather than making them, but you should be aware of the possibility. All of those items are covered in separate farming guides, so if you're looking for something other than Heavy Desolate Leather, you'll find it in one of those, while the main item of interest is covered in the section below.

Changes in Shadowlands

The Heavy Desolate Leather is one of the most difficult things to obtain through skinning the creatures you kill. The majority of the time, while skinning a monster, you have a 9 percent chance of receiving this leather. This item's scarcity helps to make it a good one for generating gold. Especially since this reagent is necessary for crafting of many extremely important and necessary items, many of them consumable, such as the Vestige of Origins, Crafter's Mark II, Crafter's Mark III, and Recipe: Crafter's Mark of the Chained Isle, Drums of Deathly Ferocity, Heavy Desolate Armor Kit and the legendary mail – Boneshatter set. Hence, this is bound to be needed in large quantities by all craftsmen – mainly Leatherworkers who need this material for most of their more advanced crafts.

The only notable change is that all five things acquired via the skinning profession can now be obtained from the same monsters. As a consequence, unlike previous expansions, you will not have to hunt certain animals or visit specific zones to get something.

Aside from that, there is one distinction: skinning is one of the professions that has gotten minimal attention from developers. All you have to do now, like before, is go on a killing spree, skinning the animals at a place with a high respawn rate. In terms of those locations, see the part after this one, where we'll list all of our top picks.

Heavy Desolate Leather farming routes

In this section, we'll guide you through the process of farming in the Shadowlands using the finest places we've identified and tried. We've found numerous places for you that meet all of our criteria, such as no problematic monsters, a high concentration, and a high respawn rate.

Any of those sites will work well for you regardless of how you choose to farm - alone or with others. We'll also give some suggestions for different sorts of players, so don't worry if you don't have as much experience.

Route 1

Heavy Desolate Leather farming guide Bastion

To begin, we'd like to introduce you to our indisputable finest - the famous place in Bastion, or so we believe. The northern portion of the Aspirant's Crucible, at the height of the Vestibule of Eternity, is the one we're talking about. There will be a lot of Languishing Etherwyrms and Starved Etherwyrms in this tiny region. Both creatures are fairly easy to defeat and have a decent probability of giving you the Heavy Desolate Leather, both of them at around 8-10%. Furthermore, their rapid respawns will be beneficial to those of you who have grown rather effective at farming monsters.

Route 2

Heavy Desolate Leather farming guide Bastion 2

Our second fantastic location is in Bastion, but this time we're heading to Kala's Den, which you've probably been if you finished the Bastion objectives. It's simple to find because it's near The Mnemonic Locus and a bit south of the Hero's Rest. This area is home to a vast number of animals, all of which can be skinned. Because the distance between the spawns is fair, clearing this region for greater spawning and better rewards should be simple.

Route 3

Heavy Desolate Leather farming guide Maldraxxus

Finally, we'll journey to Maldraxxus, a slightly different environment. Anyone who like moving will appreciate this spot. Just south-east of the entrance to the Theater of Pain. The Virulent Pests can be found here; these creatures are very easy to kill in comparison to other locations in Maldraxxus, and they spawn at an alarming rate. The only downside is that they aren't as close together as they might be, making pulling a bit more difficult. However, this remains one of our favourites, and because of this one minor disadvantage, it may be a bit less busy at peak hours.

Heavy Desolate Leather farming tips

There are just a few things you can do to improve your gathering efficiency when gathering Heavy Desolate Leather apart from improving your routes and setup. We'll go over them in this section, and whether you're a seasoned pro or not, you'll find it quite helpful. First of all, whatever you've seen on the internet, or whatever your friends do, your equipment and class of character is the most essential component in the farming of leathers and bones, because some classes will perform better.

Above all, remember that dying is the most time-consuming element of any farming activity; as a consequence, you should experiment with your class, spec, and gear setup to discover how much you can safely pull at a time in order to prevent overcommitting yourself.

Certain classes are obviously more suited to skinning and gathering leathers. Feral Druids, for example, will have a better time due to their various talents, tanking abilities, and the fact that they can move faster in their animal form.

Furthermore, with the looting system changes, you can farm efficiently in groups because you may loot any monster if you do any damage on it. So, if you gather five characters and farm together, you may earn the prize five times as long as each character causes some harm.

Farming gear

Because you won't be using your mount as often as you would if you were farming any of the more natural resources, there isn't much gear that can help you harvest leathers. As a consequence, you must have the gloves enchant – Enchant Gloves - Shadowlands Gathering.

Its single purchase, on the other hand, will quickly pay you because this enchantment increases your gathering pace by three times. You won't be skinning for 12 seconds if you're farming rapidly and dragging even 7 or 8 creatures, but 4 seconds seems much better!

If you keep all of this in mind and follow the instructions in our Heavy Desolate Leather farming guide, you should be able to fill your bags with expensive leathers and bones in no time, whether for your vocation or to sell at the Auction House. Best wishes and have a fantastic time!
