I finally decided to get those last ten points in leatherworking, so I headed to Argent Vanguard to grind big ugly spiders. For the better part of three long WoW sessions I killed spider after spider.
Finally I maxed leatherworking!!!
That was a grind. I don't want to do that again anytime soon. I have no desire to see a stupid spider for a looooong time.
Why is there no achievement for this?
Not only did I get leatherworking, I got 32 greens, 2 blues, tons of gold, stacks of scrolls, frostweave cloth, runic potions, and more leather than you can imagine. If you have to grind something, there probably is no better mob in the game. I guess it paid off.
If only I still had my sanity :)
