Showing restraint shows good faith. Why is this such a difficult concept?

The spiders in the woods drop the former. No idea about the latter, I remember it took me forever before I was able to find a Charscale Leg Armor for my prot pally on the AH on my server.

I usually farm the TB spiders but lately i'vve been farming the birds and wolves in north twilight highlands. I get just about as much and there is no competition or people trying to ninja skin your kills.

The area below lost city in uldum is also pretty good for leather. Pristine hide drops 100% from the leather trader in TH; I've never found anything that drops it often enough to be worth farming, trading leather is faster.

Don't bother farming pristine hides. The drop rate is abysmal. I've been farming leather in tb everyday for about a month. I've gotten fewer than 5 pristine hides in that time. Just trade for it.

I got 3 Pristines on Cata day....
Have done plenty of Farming since then (The DID nerf the Droprate) and have since gotten 0 from Skinning. (Got plenty of 'em from vendor)
No it's THIS good. - shadowgamer_x

I leveled my LW to 525 off my own skinning mats, and I've never seen a pristine hide drop. I though they were trade only.

I got two or three in Hyjal in January. Haven't seen one drop since, but I haven't been skinning much lately.

Never seen a pristine drop myself.

Just trade 10 heavy savage leather for pristine.

If blackened dragonscales are expensive on your server, that charred area in the southernmost part of TH is awesome
I just want to surf the web without getting pulled under by a riptide of lies.
