I have got to 150 leatherworking and I am having a problem finding the artisan trainer Iím human BTW also what is this I hear about elemental leatherworking and there are some others?
Are these specialised crafts or part of leatherworking?

Artisan leather guy is in Darnassus, well pretty sure he is, might be one in Iron Forge but I don't think so.

Elemental, Tribal and Dragonscale are specialized leather work that can be opened up through quests at lvl 40 and skill 200. Once you choose one, you can NOT change your mind later and they warn you like 3 times about this.

Elemental and Tribal are both leather and Dragonscale is a Mail specialty. They do not effect your previous recipes and there are still open recipes up to at least 270 that I have seen.

Elemental seems to be geared towards Rogues since it has more recipes that have sta and agi on it where as Tribal will help druids a bit more with the int and spi. Both have different resists on the recipes with elemental givng fire resist and Tribal giving nature as the primary resists. I don't really know too much about Dragonscale since I am a leather for life class but obviously it would be geared to the Hunters and Shamans in some way I assume.

The kicker is that between Ele and Trib there are what I call cross over peices that will benefit the other class that people feel the over all specialization is not aimed at. eg: Ele appears to be a rogue kinda thing but Tribal has Devilsaur armor which just scream rogue. In the end pick the one you think you will like more and make friends with someone doing the other if you need something from that tree.

Tsakiera is right. The Alliance Artisian LW trainer (teaches Expert, 150-225), is in Darnassus.

As there isn't much reason to be in Darnassus other than the odd quest here and there and for training, be sure to take a few stacks of leather with you. That way you can make several new items while you're there and then pick up all of the new recipes you want. Then you don't have to come back for a while.

As for the specialties, it really depends on the class you play. If you are a Druid, Tribal is best. For Rogues, it's Elemental. Shamans go with Dragonscale.

If you're a Hunter, you're kind left out. Blizzard has stated DS is the way to go for Hunters, but their chosen set (Black Dragonscale) only has four known pieces, and it gives Attack Power instead of Agility. Many Hunters with LW, myself included, dump it after completing the Tough Scorpid set at appx level 45. After that, you're better off picking up pieces of "... of the Monkey" mail off mobs or at the AH.
