This Wotlk Skinning guide will show you the fastest and easiest way to level your Skinnig skill from 1 to 450.

Visit any Skinning Trainer, and learn Skinning Apprentice.
Beasts in the immediate starting area can’t be skinned because that area is for level 1-6 players and you won’t have any profession until you reach level 5.

When you reach 60, visit your trainer and learn the next rank of Skinning.
