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.
Quest Text Edit
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.
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:
- 1 x Pattern: Tough Scorpid Breastplate
- 1 x Pattern: Tough Scorpid Gloves
- 36 x Thick Leather
- 40 x Scorpid Scale
- 12 x Silken Thread
- 10 x Worn Dragonscale
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 questgiver, 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.
