is a crafting reagent that can be obtained by skinning leather beasts around the Broken Isles. It's used mainly in
Some of the farm spots for Skinning:
Bears, boars (average)
Wolves (very good)
Lion Seals (the best)
Crabs (the best)

Hello everyone, I have made a really nice guide on how to obtain Stonehide Leather in Legion.
First of all you want to come over to
which is located in the Broken Isles in Legion.
So in order to obtain the
what you need to do is to come over to the spot and you will find a lot of those
. So the only thing you need to do is kill them and also skin them.
Keep in mind that in Legion, several people can tag the same mob and still get loot. So, if someone tagged your mob but he didn't loot the corpse, you can't skin the mob.
Most Legion mobs scale to your level, so this place is good for players between level 100 and 110.
If you are honored with the Highmountain Tribe, you should get the
enchant from Ransa Greyfeather at the Thunder Totem. It allows you to sometimes loot
which can contain extra Leathers and Meats.
I hope this was helpful!
Did a quick guide on 2 spots I found really high spawn rates and lots of mobs to get tons of leather. Hope it helps happy hunting!
!PLEASE NOTE:! As of the hotfix on September 6th the amount of Stormscale/Stonehide Leather you get from skinning has been GREATLY reduced, from like 7-10 down to 2-3. Source:
skinning got big nerf?
With rank 2 I get 2-3 per mob now, if you acquire rank 3 it will range between 2 and 4 leather (same goes for stormscale)
My personal favorite spot to farm is in Suramar, 32, 37 or so. The wolves and deer mobs there don't have any special abilities worth mentioning and are all over the place with fast respawn times. The mobs there are also tied to quests nearby so often times there's corpses that haven't been skinned yet just lying around. If you're a tank in particular you'll have no issues pulling 10-15 or more at once.
In Suramar there's these awesome
that you can deposit 10 Ancient Mana into for a 20 min buff that gives you a chance to inflict an extra 100-200k damage. One of the caves that has them is right behind/under the
What I do, once or twice a day, is just fly out to Crimson Thicket, jump down into the cave and clear some mobs to get my Ley Ward buff, then walk outside and spam the crap out of all the mobs there with my buffed up damage. There's deer and wolves up and down the hillside directly outside, it's a sweet loop. I'm a hunter, so barrage has a lot of win for this strat.
I was loathe to share this info at the xpac release but now I've finally ground out most of my gear, I hope this can help the rest of you get caught up/help alts. Happy hunting :)
, if you're capped on Ancient Mana,
you won't be able to loot the mobs anymore and skin them afterward
. So this is a great way if you're low on it to grind both Mana and leather, that's what I do; like, after a Withered run when I'm wiped out of Mana.
Guys, I made a video on the best secluded location in Legion to farm Stonehide Leathers while having the added bonus of gathering Ancient Mana for the Nightfallen quests and Missions. Check it out at
One good place I found is in Aszuna, north and north west of the Ruined Sanctum, roughly /way 63, 50 for TomTom users. Might as well do the quest Minion! Kill Them! while you're at it. The horses, prowlers and birds are all skinnable.
Hey, I made a quick guide for a good Legion leather farming spot, check it out:
Best place to farm this is in Azsuna, in the mob
, when the bear WQ is active, because everyone need to loot the bear in order to complete that WQ!
The absolute best spot I have found to farm Stonehide Leather is the falcosaurs at Challiane's Terrace in Azsuna.
If you can convince people to loot, the grouping of the mobs there makes it incredible for farming quickly.
It seems that lion seals no longer spawn on that little island just southwest of Challiane's Terrace.
Fastest way for me is pick up the "Hunter at Heart" quest from the Helmet Nesingwary. Then go farm at either the black bear hill or lion feeding grounds. The mobs spawn almost instantly. Extremely fast if you have a tank. I farmed with my Vengeance DH and with Addie Fizzlebog helping, I usually grabbed like 8-10 mobs and burned all of them within seconds. Even faster if you use class hall hero to help. JUST DON'T TURN IN THE QUEST. That way you can come back and farm with Addie whenever you want. I farmed a stack of 200 in less than 15 min.
If the World Quest
is up - that is an excellent spot for farming. You can just run around cleaning up after all the others.
I've found a pretty decent spot in stormheim in the stormtorn foothills at around 50,33 just north west of the fight point by the cliffs theres heaps of stags and eagles that you can skin and they respawn fairly quickly
The best place I've found so far, is the Nesingwary camp area in Highmountain. Coords are approx 41:53. The goats (Sated Hillstriders) there respawn almost immediately. I'm getting 2-3 leathers per skin, plus broken teeth and Big Gamy Ribs. It's a great farming spot. There are also Pinerock Stalkers and Pinerock Elderhorn nearby that you can kill and skin.
