Herbalism Guide

Herbalism Guide

When you learn the herbalist skill, a new icon appears in your spell book. You are given a tool to “find herbs”. During your walks, herbs appear on your mini-map as yellow dots. To harvest a plant, you must have the required level in your jurisdiction. An enchantment on gloves can help you increase your skill.

If you combine the alchemist profession with harvesting herbs, you can concoct all sorts of potions that will be very useful. There are master herbalists (NPCs) who can help you train to be an herbalist.

There are certain herb varieties in the World of Warcraft. These varieties may hold just one or a group of herbs. In the list below you will see the herb varieties and the skill level you need to locate them. If you do not have enough experience points you will be unable to find the herbs.  The list also includes the places you can find the herb varieties.

You may notice that some herb varieties hold the same herb. For example, “Unidentified Plant Parts” and “Fel Lotus” are found with “Ragveil” and “Dreaming Glory”. This is not a mistake. Just like how a duck and a chicken can create an egg, so can “Ragveil” and “Dreaming Glory” create “Fel Lotus”.

How to use the information: Below you will see that if you wish to find “Black Lotus”, you must be leveled up to level 300. If you check the information above, you will see that you need a level 60 herbalism skill, in order to use the herb.
