If you want to learn skinning from this NPC you should first complete the totems questline. Otherwise, the bear-head won't tell you anything except of some indecryptable furbolg mumble. That's pretty well fits the "legend": you should first learn language to communicate. Though that was annoying to run all the way to Stillpine hold with my lvl 5 character just to learn the thing.
You can pick up the first quest for that questline from Cryptographer Aurren at Azure Watch (49,51) at level 8.
If you've just learned skinning, you can get a skinning knife from
about 30 yards north.
Could he be the SMALLEST furbolg in existence? I mean, he's TINY!
How come I can't learn skinning from this guy? Do I need to raise my reputation with them or something?
Ok for those who were wondering, you can only talk to the furbolks (and so be able to learn what they have to teach you) after completing a quest in Azure Watch. I can't remember the name of the quest but you are asked to find several totems, furbolks ancestors showing you the way.
the jerk won't talk to me at level 8, neither will the leather Moordo.
I guess level 8 and below isn't supposed to do leather or skinning.
questline allows you to interact with this NPC (as well as others in Stillpine Hold) and learn skinning.
Note: Must Complete the quest
"Learning The Language."
at level 8 before speaking to any of the Stillpine Furbolks
