Alliance Skinning Guide
This guide will help you get from 1 to 525 Skinning in the easiest and most painless way possible. Also you will want to sell all of the skins you get while leveling your Tradeskill as they will net you a good amount on the Auction House. Especially Rugged Leather, Borean Leather and Knothide Leather. Depending on your server leveling Skinning could net you well over 1k gold!
