    Cataclysm: Savage Leather available now

    Looking at wowheads web page for http://www.wowhead.com/item=52976#skinned-from the item is skinnable from [npc]41293[/npc] a lvl 22 mob in this zone.

    This is the new leather going to be needed in Cata so it may be worthwhile to grab some now.

    Not sure on whether or not this is a bannable offense since it is likely a bug.

    This is probably not ban-worthy, but definitely inside that massive gray area of what is acceptable or not.

    Likely you will receive a slap on the wrist, and the items will be taken away from you. Bugs like this happen, and I know Blizzard appreciates when they are reported instead of abused.

    It would surprise me if they do anything, perhaps the most will be to delete the items.

    I'm going to use this to farm up 10-20 stacks of leather before hand, save it for Cataclysm and unload at 500g/stack the first hour of Cataclysm.

    Farming these right now. I plan on dumping the leather on december the 7th or 8th. If I do it now, I might just get into trouble. Not sure, but not worth the risk. Another solution I'll look into is finding some crazy and rich leatherworker who will be willing to buy off my entire stock when cata hits.

    Edit: drops confirmed.
    Edit 2: there's got to be a better way to do this. Quasi-instant repop means the faster you go, the more you get. The best I can think of is any form of water-walking, ore maybe swim-speed potions at worst, but does anyone out here have any more efficient ideas?

    I wouldn't recommend this. My friend obtained a few 85 rares, some Embersilk and the new water from a roam into Hyjal he was promptly emailed, gm opened contact and the items removed. Only a warning but they said repeating the offence would result in a ban

    That's an entirely different matter in my opinion. In order to get those, he went into a zone he was not authorized to go into - and I'm quite sure the GMs have a /who scanner on Hyjal, Uldum and the likes. He was pretty blatantly violating the TOS, if only in the way he entered those zones. Here, I'm just killing level 22 mobs in a perfectly normal place. No wall-walking, no playing on off-shore bobber limits, nothing but pure, normal game mechanics. These mobs just happen to have, well, unusually good loot.

    Besides, anyone with a leve 20-25 skinner alt will run into this. They will obviously discover the jackpot, and honestly, how could blizz ban anyone for something THEY so blatantly screwed up?
