Inv sword 35.png

Zulian Slicer is a one-handed sword that increases the wielder's skinning skill level. The only other weapon that increases skinning is the dagger Finkle's Skinner.


Zulian Slicer drops off High Priest Thekal in Zul'Gurub.


  • Since Paladins cannot equip daggers, Paladin skinners must obtain this weapon rather than the dagger Finkle's Skinner if they wish to increase their skinning skill beyond using Enchant Gloves - Skinning. Hunters, warriors and rogues can dual wield this weapon and Finkle's Skinner in order to stack their bonuses together. Death Knights who decide to put some points in frost can DW. Combined with a +5 skinning enchant to gloves, this gives a maximum skinning skill of 475. There are currently no known mobs that require 475 skill to skin.

Starting off with DW and a +5 to gloves enchant, one can obtain +25. Worgen will have a +15 skinning racial making the starting total +40 skinning.
