Skinning is a gathering profession that involves skinning creatures that you have killed, and making leather out of the skins and hides. To be able to skin you have to have a Skinning Knife in your inventory. To make leather you need to use a tanning rack.

Typically your Skinning level corresponds to the level of the creatures you can skin, for example if your Skinning level is 7, then you can skin level 7 Grassland Wolves but can not skin level 8 Grassland Wolves. The only exception are Wild Pigs, they have no level requirement.

Not all creatures are skinnable, and not all skinnable creatures drop hides or skin. Skinnable creatures by level can be found in the Skinnable creatures category.

Most skinnable creatures tend to drop meat items appropriate for their level (Soft Meat, Ham, etc), the meat can be used in Cooking.
