Wow Classic Herbalism Guide

From what we have seen and experienced, Herbalism seems to be the fastest and easiest way to level up, all thanks to Herbs Nodes being present everywhere. Infact, there’s so much popping up every second, that you are bound to miss some herbs on the chase for that very one that erupted first. Though, not to worry we will guide you on how to deal with this in our Wow Classic Herbalism guide. 

It’s all the game of running around, collecting and storing the plants in your inventory. In the start, all of this may look a bit weird, but in the long run, the recollection of goods would prove fruitful. That being said, let’s take you further down the journey of Wow Classic Herbalism Guide. 

An Indepth Wow Classic Herbalism Guide:

Before we head to the exclusive path of attaining level 300, it’s important to have a brief look over the essential focus areas (trainers, tools, etc) that play as the base of the actual farming process of Herbalism. 

Tools & Trainers For Herbalism

Tools & Trainers For Herbalism

There are no specific tool requirements as such for the Herbalism profession, making it unique from the characteristics of Mining & Skinning. Though, if you would like to take things a step forward, you may feel free to add enchantments to the gloves, leading to an increment of skill/s. The good part is that this step is pretty optional, and there are no necessities, and also it’s mainly for those at a high level herbalism. 

When it comes to Trainers, you’ll be left with plenty of options. Pretty much in every city, there’s a trainer for you. To make it easier for you, we have categorized (Alliance & Horde) and listed the available trainers in the different cities. Let’s check it out:

Where To Fetch Herbs? 

Herbs are pretty much everywhere on most of the map spots out there. The moment you take the Herbalism profession, you are even given the Find Herbs skill, making you eligible to see the herbs pretty much all around. Just like most other professions, in the long run, to gather herbs, you will have to have a high skill level. Thankfully, when it comes to lower level spots, gathering Herbs is actually pretty quick and rewarding. 

Right Way To Level Up:

Figuring out the herb node’s color would make it possible for you to increase the Herbalism level. Let’s see what color represents what context. 

  • Grey: It represents that you have no chances of gaining more level from the node. 
  • Green: It represents that the opportunity for a fresh point declines as you collect a herb. 
  • Yellow: It represents that the chances are high of gaining a point from the node. 
  • Orange: It represents that you are eligible to procure a point from the herb node. 

There’s no doubt in the fact that levelling in the Herbalism profession is like a cake walk, but yes you may have to spend a little time, until you don’t come across the Grey herb nodes.

This is the special path that you can take to reach level 300 in the shortest time possible. The great thing is that it works for both Horde and Alliance.

Professions To Combine With Herbalism:

Professions To Combine With Herbalism

The profession that probably would go down well as a second profession with Herbalism has to be Alchemist. Feel free to have material at any point of time to deal with the potions, as most of the potions need herbs to be completed. On top of it, if you are also in a fight, in the middle of a dungeon, you may use the rare herbs to your advantage. 

If your plans are different and you want to target Gold, then in that case, the Mining profession would be the right choice. Just go off and sell everything you have got in the Auction House to start to earn. Though, remember to always have a view over the server’s population before actually beginning out on the journey. The higher the number of players, the better it will be to sell your stuff. However, since the advent of the Burning Crusade Classic, you have to become fast at pretty much the whole process, right from levelling to selling. 

Best Classes To Consider:

After a lot of research, we finally decided upon the classes that would fit well in our Wow Classic Herbalism guide article….

Start off by making a Druid, as that’s one of the easiest ways of procuring herbs (no need of dismounting). For those who don’t know, Taurens are known to possess a race trait that can literally take Herbalism ahead by 15 points. We recommend you to make an alt and sell it off in the Auction House. 

If you plan to somehow save on the Gold and not waste much on the whole journey, you may go for classes (Warlocks & Wizards) that have good relations with Alchemy. Last, but certainly not the least, is Rogue, as they have skills that require herbs, ultimately paving a way for Herbalism.

2.How to pick up Herbalism Profession?

Ans: It’s actually quite simple and straightforward to begin with! First of all, attain level 5, and then proceed to a guard to enquire about the spot of a Herbalism Trainer. 

3.My character can’t obtain a specific herb. What should I do?

Ans: To gather materials from a herb node, you should not only have the required Herbalism level, but also be free from any kind of conflict. 


The great thing about Herbalism in comparison to other available professions is that it’s a lot easier to go through, and also its materials are never a thing to worry about. If you ever see other players farming for herbs, or even trying to steal yours, don’t panic, as there’s so much for everyone in so many places that it becomes a bad idea to disturb your peace of mind over such instances. 

We are hopeful that if you carefully follow our Wow Classic Herbalism guide, you will have a fun time dealing with the profession. In case you have any suggestions, doubts or queries, feel free to let us know through the comments box or the contact form.
