Leatherworker Level 35-40
Level 35 Leatherworker Class Quest Item: (HQ) Boarskin Ringbands
Level 35 LTW Leves [L]ocation: Coerthas (Observatorium) | Gridania
Level 35 Leatherworker Leves Items Discussion:
[H][R] 5(15)x Boar Leather: Both triples are good. [H] 1x
Peisteskin Crakows: Not the best choice in this tier. [C] 1x Boarskin Ringbands: Really cheap. Worth the travel. Value. [L][R] 3(9)x Boarskin Choker: Both triples are good. Attempt this with NQ Boar Leather. [L] 1x Fingerless Peisteskin Gloves: Probably the best single leve in this tier. [L] 1x Boarskin Harness: No value at all.
Lots of choices here. Boarskin Choker is best. If you feel like staying in Gridania, Boarskin Ringbands are fine, too. And of course the usual leather option. (Boar Leather)
If Grinding: Attempt for as many HQ Boar Leather / HQ Peiste Leather / HQ Raptor Leather. (Boar & Peiste Leather are still used in the next tier…)
Leatherworker Level 40-45
Level 40 Leatherworker Class Quest Item: (HQ) Boarskin Smithy Gloves
Level 40 LTW Leves [L]ocation: Coerthas (Whitebrim) | Gridania
Level 40 Leatherworker Leves Items Discussion:
[C] Boarskin Culottes – Courier. A bit expensive but worth the exp.
[L] Pieste Leather – Best choice but difficult to HQ by yourself.
[L] Boarskin Moccasins – Not bad.
A weird/sucky tier. Boarskin Moccasins are pretty good and neutrally priced. The Peiste Leather option isn’t bad if you can HQ them. If you’re saving money you can go for the courier, which is probably worth it in this tier.
If Grinding: Try making a number of HQ Raptor Leather.
Leatherworker Level 45-50
Level 45 Leatherworker Class Quest Item: (All HQ) Fingerless Raptorskin Gloves, Raptorskin Targe, Raptorskin Choker
Level 45 LTW Leves [L]ocation: Mor Dhona | Gridania
Level 45 Leatherworker Leves Items Discussion:
[C] Raptorskin Artisan’s Belt – Courier. Not too bad expense wise.
[L] Raptor Leather – Best choice but difficult to HQ by yourself.
[L] Hunting Moccasins – USES BOAR LEATHER so it’s not a bad choice.
Raptor Leather and Hunting Moccasins clearly win in this tier. There are some key materials that make the others expensive, but check prices to make sure.
If Grinding: Raptor Leather, or any high level leve item. Raptorskin Ring and Raptorskin Merchant Purse are widely used, and can be sold easily.
