Leatherworking in 3.0.8

I think everyone is aware by now that the only major change to Leatherworking this patch is the addition of Frozen Orbs to the mat requirements for the BoE armor kits, Frosthide Leg Armor and Icescale Leg Armor.

Less obvious was the addition of three new patterns: the PvP leg armor, Earthen Leg Armor, and two epic druid items, Windripper Boots and Windripper Leggings. The new leg armor is trainable from your local LW Grand Master trainer at 435, and the two leather patterns are sold by Braeg Stoutbeard in Dalaran for 2 Arctic Furs each and learnable at 440.

The addition of the Frozen Orbs to the leg armor makes leveling that much more difficult, I'm afraid, but does increase their value dramatically. When I was leveling, the AH was flooded with armor kits at around 25g each; now they are well over 100g.
