To get your profession to 300 you can use our Classic Herbalism Guide.
When leveling Gathering professions, the most optimal route for collecting different node types is often a large circle, or “circuit”, around an entire zone or smaller route within it.
Considering there will be a lot of competition when gathering herbs in the starting zone, you can easily level the first 15 skill points in Winterspring. Icecap is yellow until skill 340, so go ahead as long as you want!
You can stay in the Plaguelands and have a good time gathering herbs until hitting 330/340, but you can also head over to Outland now. Zangarmarsh is the easiest zone to farm in due to a lot of herbs growing there and NPCs like the Bog Lord that can be gathered as well after killing them.
Of course you can according to your skill level also choose to gather in another zone. Its all up to you.
Farming Spots for Herbalists
Mana Thistle is particularly important, since it is a reagent in a lot of highly useful endgame Alchemy recipes. You can find Mana Thistle in Terokkar Forest (above Shattrath and in and around Skettis) and in Nagrand, near the Twilight Ridge.
Mana Thistle is a used mostly for cauldrons:
- Cauldron of Major Arcane Protection
- Cauldron of Major Fire Protection
- Cauldron of Major Frost Protection
- Cauldron of Major Nature Protection
- Cauldron of Major Shadow Protection
- Elixir of Empowerment
Fel Lotus is also highly wanted. Fel Lotus does not have own nodes, but you have a 4% chance to get it when gathering other herbs in Outland. So the only way to farm Fel Lotus is farming other herbs.
You need Fel Lotus for:
- Alchemist’s Stone
- Flask of Blinding Light
- Flask of Chromatic Wonder
- Flask of Fortification
- Flask of Mighty Restoration
- Flask of Pure Death
- Flask of Relentless Assault
