Bring 2 Tough Scorpid Breastplates, 2 Tough Scorpid Gloves, and 10 Worn Dragonscales toPeter Galen in Azshara/ Thorkaf Dragoneye in the Badlands.
Completing this quest will give you access to the Dragonscale Leatherworking arts.
The completion of this quest will prevent you from learning Elemental Leatherworking and Tribal Leatherworking; be sure this is the path you wish to follow before doing so.
Dragonscale leatherworking isn't easy, but it's extremely rewarding. I'll teach you how to make this fine mail armor, but only if you agree to certain conditions.
By choosing this path, you agree never to learn elemental or tribal leatherworking; there is only room for one of the three at the apex of the craft. Furthermore, I'll need some samples of your best work involving scorpid armor. Finally, I'll need proof of your ability to acquire the staple of the trade: scales of the dragonkin.
You will receive:
If you're ready to commit to a permanent decision by becoming a dragonscale leatherworker, then I'm ready to take you on as a student. Just bring to me the things I asked for, and we'll begin your education.
I'll hand it to you - it takes a strong will to make a permanent decision like you've just done. I assure you, dragonscale leatherworking will prove to be a profitable and rewarding path for you to follow.
To train in the art for the future, simply speak to me and I will make available any knowledge that you have yet to commit as yours.
If you don't want to search out the items yourself, you can often find all the items on the auction house.
Total materials required to craft the items is:
If you do hunt for them yourself, note that the Badlands (where Horde players get the quest), despite having a large number of dragon whelps and drakes just east of the quest giver, is not a good place to look for Worn Dragonscale. It does drop, but at a very poor rate. Feralas and Dustwallow Marsh are much better places to farm dragonkin for the scales. Both the patterns and the scorpid scale itself can be found in Tanaris, though you might be better off buying the patterns from the auction house, as they're generally not expensive.
