Herbalism Guide Apr-28-2020
Welcome to our guide on Herbalism for WoW Classic! As you may be aware, Herbalism is a skill that allows you to gather a wide variety of herbs, which can be further used to sell or manipulate into more items. In fact, the majority of players choose to do Herbalism due to the massive profit you can make. For example, you can use the Find Herbs spell to find herbs that are nearby, which drastically speed up your profits per hour!
In this guide, we’ve got a comprehensive, step by step method into dominating Herbalism in WoW Classic. If you are looking for the best ways to tailoring in WoW Classic, check out our Tailoring Guide last week. Without further ado, let’s get started!
There are many reasons why heaps of players chose to do Herbalism – let’s go through a few!
Firstly, the herbs you can acquire through the Herbalism skill are quite useful, as they can be further used in Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Cooking, Engineering, Leatherworking and Tailoring. Secondly, if you’re a Rogue player, you can create Blinding Powder for Blind by using Fadeleaf. Additionally, the Thistle Tea can be created by using Switftthistle. And finally, Herbs are required for plenty of quests in WoW Classic.
So, you might be wondering, how do you even level Herbalism in the place? Well, as you know with all professions in WoW Classic, you can skill points when doing a specific task respective to the professional. And the frequency at which you receive a skill point depends on your current skill level. You can see this through the four colour codes: Orange – Always granting a skill point, Yellow – Frequently granting a skill point, Green – Infrequently granting a skill point, and Grey – Does not grant a skill point.
So, to gather herbs and level your Herbalism in an optimal manner, it’s very important that you know where the herb nodes are going to spawn. For a point of reference, herb nodes usually spawn in natural environments that are near hills, cliffs, mountain ranges, zone borders, caves, mines and open terrain. Therefore, while you’re looking at the areas in WoW Classic, make sure that you’re entering an area with a strong chance of finding an herb node. And of course, make sure your skill is high enough to gather from the herb nodes that you find. Quick tip – turn Find Herbs on so you can see the herb nodes on your mini map.
Professions to Pair with Herbalism
As herbs are needed for potions, flasks and elixirs, we highly recommend you pair Herbalism with Alchemy. Furthermore, if you want to simply make gold, pair Herbalism with Mining.
Classes to Learn Herbalism
Amongst WoW Classic players, Herbalism is popular among Druids, as Travel Form allows them to Herb without having to dismount. Tauren Druids also can use the Cultivation racial, which provides +15 herbalism.
