This post started off very promising. Then, it got weird. It's like you decided to randomly stop capitalizing things where it was needed and instead chose other words to capitalize.
yet at the same time skinning when combined with a class capable of doing good AOE is highly profitable. I use a boomkin for this work and can make a decent profit off of shoveltusk flank with the added bonus of a chance at an arctic fur; only about 50g on my server last I checked.
The one thing I am looking for now is packs of "Worgs" as the new +hit recipe based on them. That should, given time, put a dent in my fishing profits but in the end be more profitable again from the chance at arctic furs. The problem is they don't come in packs, unless that area near the horde city in borean is a good supply for meat drops.
There is a cave in Storm Peaks which has an abundance of worgs and also a really ridiculous respawn rate, i.e. they repop as fast as you can kill them. A really good source of leather and meat.
I was thinking about that location too. The wierd thing is that Arctic fur Drops/skins more from mobs that don't have a specific other skin like Jormungal or Icy Dragonscales etc.
I did kill some Gorillas in Sholazar and i noticed that on the packs i take as a MM hunter to AOE on ~200 Gorillas i've skinned ~5 Arctic Furs (That is way more than the average 1%
One thing i probably do Different than the normal Skinner guy is i equip
Gatherer Enchant on Gloves +
Finkle's Skinner & Zulian Slicer
I have those 2 since before made them NOT (unique) Now people can get 2 of each
(should get a second Finkle's Skinner due to it's Bonus VS Beasts since most of the time the skinned guys are beasts)
They are a bit of downgrade and people can chose to equip/unequip them after and before skinns but i just kill all the mobs with them atm (damn Volley Nerf next pach)
Edit#1 I can not tell for sure if using such items actually increase the Skin rate of Artic Fur. However a change that blizz made to herbalism stated something like: "bonus skill points increase drop chances of rare herbs" made me think at that time that it should work the same for Skining. Could be my imagination of increased skin rate of Cobra Scales.
Edit#2 UBRS had a portal summon that requiered 3 ~ 5 people (i am not sure) that can now be usedby just 1 making the dagger much easier to get since you don't need people to help you now.
