- The skill of creating leather or drake hide items. Improving leather items is not limited by leather QL.
Leather armour generally provides the least amount of base defense. However it also has one of the smallest penalties to attack speed and walking speed. Leather armour has defensive bonuses to bashing, while the equipment itself also gets extra damage from cutting. A full leather set weighs 3.2KGs and will slow you to 15.40KM/h on cobblestone when worn.
The QL of the leather armour piece made will be the lesser of 20% of your leatherworking skill or the QL of the leather used.
Studded leather armour
Studded leather armour generally provides a moderate amount of base defense with similar penalties as leather armour. Studded leather armour represents a good common ground between speed and reasonable defense though still less base defense then plate provides. A full studded leather set weighs 4.9KGs and will slow you to 14.77KM/h on cobblestone when worn.
You may not be able to make a studded leather jacket if it is the first studded leather armour piece you attempt. Try to create another piece first.
Drake hide armour
Drake hide is the best leatherworking-based armour existing in Wurm. Its protection rating is between chain and plate, yet more sensitive to cutting and piercing than chain armor. Drake hide armor has the lowest penalty to and walking speed other than scale (about 16 km/h on cobble) and is very lightweight.
