Item Level: 88
Skill Requirement: Skinning Level 525+
Recommended Level: 85+
Prismatic Scales are the new secondary leather type collected in Mists of Pandaria. You may remember Blackened Dragonscale from Cataclysm, this leather trade good is very different. It will be used in combination with Sha Leather and Magnificent Hides by Leatherworkers to craft the newest high end gear.
You can expect to farm Prismatic Scales in the new Pandaria continent. They will be skinned off of deceased beasts from level 85 to 90, you’ll need at least 525 to skin a level 85 beast so this is the bare minimum level you’ll need to find Prismatic Scales.
There isn’t much information available about the new trade goods in Mists of Pandaria, but more is coming soon…
Tip: Have you ever wondered how players have so many level 85s or how they can level an 85 so quickly? I use and strongy recommend Zygor's in-game leveling addon which will enable you to level in 5 days of played time. You can find a free version of it here.
