    Free Savage Leather

    I love free skins. I love finding someone else's kill and getting a free skin... following their grinding trail of carnage and collecting the free skins they leave behind. Maybe this makes me a bottom feeder, but hey, it's free gold!

    I'm a stay at home mom/casual gamer. So I never intended to RACE to 85. I log on when I can and enjoy the content as I go. As such, I've only just started Vash'jir...

    A good place for Free Skins is at the very first Quest Hub right after you get the Vash underwater buff. This of course works best at Peak Times. Just wander around under that first capsized ship, and skin the crabs people leave behind as they speed level through the quest. They almost always loot, because they need the meat for the quest. Also keep an eye out for blue orbs, they almost look like bubbles. These are dead Eels and are also skinnable.

    I would love to hear about other Cataclysm Free Skin farming spots. Please share.

    Nice tip.. If you really want to get a ton of savage leather fast go to Tol Barad as soon as a battle ends. The winning faction gets access to 6 new dailies in the main part of Tol Barad where the fighting goes on. One of the dailies [quest]swamp bait[/quest] requires you to kill and loot 8 crocolisks. These mobs are overwhelmed by players trying to get thier dailies done and the location is very small. Click on the link for the quest and you will see where they spawn. You wont be able to skin faster then people are killing crocolisks.

    Woo Good tip.

    The portal in SW to Tol Barad says I had to be level 85. (the last time I tried it)

    Is there any other way to get there?

    Nope. I've tried numerous times. You get Fatigued. Also, several posters on MMO Champion have also stated that it is not possible to fly there. Tol Barad is only accessible via the PvP interface, and at level 85.

    There is a quest spot in Uldum just west of the river where there is a quest to kill hyenas (I forgot the actual mob name or the quest name). Specifically, the hyenas reside on the mid-tier mount near Ahkenet Fields. If you would see 2 200-feet tall Immortal Colossus fighting a group of neutral NPCs, your close to the farm spot.

    In between waiting for ore spots to spawn in Uldum, I will stop by and skin up free corpse. The spawn rate of the hyenas are pretty quick so be prepared to kill another beast for extra skins. Have not got any Pristine Hides yet.

    I can honestly say that the only thing better than scavenging free leather off of other players is killing the bats and not really working that hard for the leather. I farmed a frostweave bag full of savage leather earlier in about an hours worth of work when my server didn't have the usual leather farmers on. Threw it all up on the Ah for a decent undercut and watched it all sell in about an hour.

    I'm not sure what bats you are reffering to here. What bats? In what Zone? Info would be great

    I have no contributions to this thread... just wanted to say that every time I see the thread title my mind reads it as Fred Savage Leather. Just wanted to let you know that.

    Now I won't be able to see it as anything but Fred Savage Leather. And every time, I'll be thinking, "He'll pinch my cheeks. I hate that."

    I believe the bats they are talking about are on the west side of Deepholm near the flayers. They are flying around in packs of 4-5 if I remember right.
