WoW Herbalism Guide 1-600


Herbalism This WoW Herbalism Guide covers training your Herbalism levels from 1 to 600 and details what herbs to pick while leveling Herbalism in World of Warcraft. Herbalism is one of the 3 primary gathering professions, and gathering professions tend to provide a strong gold income. Herbalism complements the Alchemy and Inscription professions very well, as Herbalism provides the raw materials required for these professions.

Updated for WoW patch 5.2

Herbalism also grants the trait Lifeblood, which provides a heal over time abilty (details at the end of this guide).

In order to find herbs to pick, enable the Find Herbs option on your minimap, by right-clicking on the icon second from the top on the left hand side of the minimap and selecting Find Herbs.
If the herb can be picked it will have a color coded property that shows this when you hover your mouse pointer over it.
Red – Herbalism level not yet high enough to pick this herb
Orange – High chance of increasing Herbalism level when picking this herb
Yellow – Moderate chance of increasing Herbalism when picking this herb
Green – Low chance of increasing Herbalism level when picking this herb
Gray – No chance of increasing Herbalism level when picking this herb

Herbalism Guide Shortcuts

All of the ‘Gathered From’ links for herbs in this guide will take you to maps on Wowhead that show you all the zones where the herb can be found, which zone has the highest concentration of each herb, and where the herbs can be found, so as that you can create a gathering route that best suits you.

Nice guide, but I notice you have no references to Swamp of Sorrows or its main herb, Sorrowmoss (requires Herbalism 285). Wowhead lists Swamp of Sorrows as having the most Golden Sansam as well.
