When you reach 225 skill and level 40, you unlock a set of quests. These quests allow you to specialize in various types of armor, which you can make for yourself only. As of patch 2.1.3, you can switch your Leatherworking specialization without losing any skill points and without doing the specialization quest. Here blelow there is the 3 way with each specialization.
The items you create as an Elemantal Leatherworker focus on melee based leather items (agility and attack power).
This specialisation offers offensive mail items – there are both caster and melee based sets.
The Tribal Leatherworking items are all leather items focused on healing.
15 x [Wicked Leather Gauntlets] – 120 Rugged Leather, 15 Black Dye, 15 Rune Thread
If there are some Heavy Scorpid Scale in the Auction House and it’s cheaper than the Rugged Leather, you can craft the following item:

Go to Outland and learn Leatherworking Master. Click here for the trainer list.
14 x [Scaled Draenic Boots] – 168 Knothide Leather, 28 Fel Scales, 42 Rune ThreadThis recipe goes yellow at 345, so you will need to make a few extra ones. I suggest gathering enough materials for 14.
350 – 450

There is no point in leveling Leatherworking further than 440, you can make every item at 440.
