What Is WoW Classic Herbalism?
Herbalism is the WoW Classic profession that focuses on gathering plants which are used as materials mainly for Alchemy and many other crafting professions. Certain amounts of plants gathered by Herbalism are also needed in many important quests as well. Herbs can often be sold as-is for pure profit as they are needed in many skills, therefore Herbalism is often a skill taken to make WoW Classic Gold (If you?re now running out of your patience then I strongly recommend you the best place to buy cheap WoW Classic Gold).
Where to Find Herbalism Trainers?
You can learn Herbalism from any Herbalism trainer in any city of any race. The idea is, when you get out of your starting zone with your character, you will be sent to the city, like Orgrimmar for Orcs, Stormwind for Humans, Thunder Bluff for Taurens, and Ironforge for Dwarves and Gnomes, etc. When you arrive at your city, you can ask any City Guard for directions, when asked for a Herbalism trainer, it will be marked on your map and with that, you can easily find your way to them and learn Herbalism and other professions or locate other places of interest you need.
How To Quickly Level Herbalism?
As you improve your skill in gathering plants, higher skill levels in Herbalism needs to be trained at Herbalism trainers to be able to gather more plants. The skill levels you will need to train at are:
Apprentice Level: learned when starting, starts from 1 skill, goes up to 75; Journeyman Level: learned when you reach 50 skill, goes up to 150; Expert Level: learned when you reach 125 skill, goes up to 225; Artisan Level: learned when you reach 200 skill, goes up to 300 and that is the highest Herbalism Level.
1?50 | Silverleaf + Peacebloom.These two herbs can be found in abundance in and around the starting zones for each race. In addition to these two, you can also start gathering Earthroot once you hit skill level 15. They like to grow near hills.
51?70 | Mageroyal + EarthrootYou can stay in the starting zones and keep picking Earthroot or you can go to Westfall/Barrens depending on your faction and do circuits picking Mageroyal and Earthroot.
71?100 | BriarthornThis part is particularly easy for Horde players, as they can just stay in the Barrens and start gathering Briarthorn as soon as they can. For the Alliance, eastern Loch Modan, Redrige and southern Darkshore are good areas. Also, don?t forget to train your profession before you hit 75.
101?115 | BruiseweedThis one is simple: Stonetalon Mountains for the Horde, and Ashenvale for the Alliance. Also, there is also Bruiseweed in some locations in Loch Modan, Redridge and southern Barrens, but less of it.
116?125 | Wild SteelbloomWild Steelblooms like mountains and hills. You can do your rounds in Arathi Highlands. Stranglethorn Vale works too, bit it might be more dangerous.
126?160 | KingsbloodAshenvale, Wetlands, Hillsbrad Foothills and Stranglethorn Vale. From This point onwards, you can also get quite far by just gathering everything you can in the Swamps of Sorrow, but I recommend you wait unit you have reached 150 and learned the next level of the profession before you go there.
161?205 | Fadeleaf, Khadgar?s Whisker & GoldthornSwamp of Sorrows is amazing for Herbalism. There is a lot of Goldthorn & Fadeleaf here. Goldthorn generally likes to grow near hills & mountains and requires Herbalism skill 170. You could even stay longer than 205, though after 205, there are other places that are much quicker. For instance, Khadgar?s Whisker in the Hinterlands.
206?230 | FirebloomSearing Gorge and Blasted Lands are great. Tanaris also has a bunch of Firebloom, but it can be quite slow because the zone is so spread out.
231?250 | SungrassFelwood and Feralas are the main zones for Sungrass. The Hinterlands and Azshara have some, too.
251?270 | Gromsblood & Golden SansamFelwood and Blasted Lands are good. There is also a small area in Ashenvale, Demon Fall Canyon. It?s small but it can be worth it, as it is not very well known. Once you reach 260, you can also start farming Golden Sansam.
270+ | Dreamfoil & Mountain SilversageBlasted Lands, Silithus and Un?Goro Crater have the most Dreamfoil. Here is a more detailed guide for Dreamfoil farming routes. Mountain Silversage can also help you on your way after you reach skill 280.
285+ | PleaguebloomCan be found in the Eastern and Western Plaguelands, and Felwood.
290+ | IcecapIcecap only appears in Winterspring. If you want to find a detailed guide for farming Icecap, please go to SSEgold.com.
300 | Congratulations, you reached lvl 300!It?s up to you to make some money with Herbalism by selling Herbs or you can improve the Alchemy profession to create some potions and sell them at the auction house to make money.
