As some of you may know, leatherworking is getting a pretty nice boost in the next patch. Not only are we getting a handful of new recipes from the trainers, but they are also adding some of the more rare recipes to faction vendors for easier access (slightly, but hey we're talking about Blizzard here). They are also tweaking some existing recipes with regard to materials and usage, Drums in particular are getting a revamp. I'm actually a tad bummed about this because I got a copy of the Drums of Restoration recipe for super cheap on the Auction House. I had planned to milk that puppy for some easy cash, but I never actually did it. My bad I suppose for being a lazy dork and now my window of opportunity is lost. Oh well.
Anyhoo... I got some screenshots of the new Leatherworking recipes off the test server and I thought you guys would want a sneak peek:
And just for grins, the new leather recipe that we suspect will be mailed out in connection with the Winter Veil event:
The leather satchel requires 300 skill, the two ammo bags are 315 and the two kits are 350 skill. I assume the Winter Boots are intended to be a novelty costume item, but unfortunately they don't look terribly cute or festive. Green, curly tipped elfish boots with jingly bells or perhaps red, fur-trimmed Santa boots would have been good, but these just look like cheap newbie footwear <sigh>.
