Tune with SL skinning lvl 27 got 1x Protogenic Pelt of a skinable rare in ZM. Max lvl SL skinning tune gets 5x Protogenic Pelt of skinable rares in ZM. Edit: after Wednesday extra reset today on Thursday rares give 3-5 x Protogenic Pelt on max SL skinning.
FYI, I was 5 seconds late to one of the rares and did not get a tag on Zatogin before he was dead, but I was still able to skin him and get 5 pelts....bottom line, don't worry if you are chasing elite beasts..as long as you get there before the corpse despawns, you should be ok.
I've been getting 3-8 hides off skinnable rares (I won't list them all, you can find them on the skinned from tab). You can skin the rares even if you miss the tag, so they are worth running around for.
If you are looking for non-rare possibly farmable mobs:
are non-elite mobs that have a decent droprate, and yield 1 hide.
are hard-hitting elite mobs that seem to consistently yield 2 hides. You'll need the survivability and/or DPS to kill these before they kill you.
found in the same area can grab the big snakes attention briefly to give you a breather. The smaller normal snakes in this area are also skinnable and drop the usual common leathers.
If you've been skinning the appropriate mobs but all you're ever getting is Desolate Leather, you should double check that you've trained Shadowlands skinning because these wont drop if you haven't.
This PSA brought to you by the two hours I just wasted like an idiot.
