Your post finally made me do it. I submitted the guide to Darqflame. Look for it in the "Guides" section in a couple of weeks.


Gratz!! You put to much time/effort into it, and it would be a waste if not.

Thanks again!

Your help with this is extremely helpful, however I have used your maps to track herbs, especially in the Outlands, however there really isn't much there to extract. You have a lot of squares indicated on the map, but for example Felweed, you stated there is only 1 herb to collect. Same thing with Dreaming Glory, only 1 herb. Is this correct?

I am not sure I understand your question. Do you mean that each herb spot would contain only 1 herb? Then I can tell you it not the case, herbs in Outland drop by the usual 1-3 per spot. I think only Ghost Mushroom (sure) and maybe Bloodvine (not sure) drop only 1 by 1.

A few things re: Outland:
- there is Blindweed in Zangar (not indicated in area list), I've never seen Bloodvine there (maybe a typo?)
- I always get the motes of life from Felweed I think, I will be more careful in checking this from now on
- Fel Blossom (which also seems to drop only from Felweed) is a lvl 60 item (I know because I couldn't use it when I found it!)
- I found 2 Fel Lotus so far and always from Felweed (but it's obvisouly not significant statistically speaking :)
- "skinning" the mobs in Zangar is a great way to find rare herbs, especially Ancient Lichen

There also random drops of Unidentified Plant parts from herbs in Zangar.

I typically have better droprates of motes off Dreaming Glory, but that could just be me as well.

Just a small point to add to a very helpful list. Fel Lotus is found with other plants rather than as a drop (at least I have found it that way and never found it as a drop)in Zangramarsh

One question. What's the the bolded shown below? "Imbue"? The link says no spells found, is this some kind of enchant-esque ability Alchemists get? Sorry if this is a noob question but I just took up Herb/Alch for my Warrior and was curious since I'd never seen this before.

small question: On the maps, are all white squares possible locations for a herb spawn, or is it only the ones with a yellow circle? There's not much of a legend that I can see.

The brighter the circle, the more servers that the location for the herb has been found. All the squares indicate where nodes have been found. Brightness just indicates frequency across servers.

Lots of high level herbs can be bought from "Lhara" at the Darkmoon Faire for an unbelievable low price. Example: She sells Fel Lotuses for 90 silver each.

any good place to get fel lotus? LOL. I know. I hear it's like a 3% chance on picking felweed. So far from level 60 to now, I've only gotten 2.

I want to make fortification flasks for the tanks for boss fights. But the mats are so hard to come by.

Ancient Lichen isn't easy either. As a resto shaman, it's not like I can go in underbog by myself and get them. I can maybe get one after an hour of farming bog lords. Not very good.

edit: oh I see the post above me has something on fel lotus. I never checked out darkmoon faire before. I guess I'll have to now.

Mike, awesome guide. I wonder if there is a chart listing at what herb level each herb can be picked. WoWhead gives something like character level, made no sense. I think each herb will tell you here, guess I might have to try Thottbot (yuck)

Not confirmed. I'll go with what it says in the item description itself until I get several confirmations that it works on Blood Elves only. Let's get a magic user over there that belongs to a different race to confirm


I didn't see that anyone posted about this but, Bloodthistle is only for Blood Elfs. {{Which sucks for any of the other horde characters that I have.}} Also, and I mean no disrespect but, the item says: "Bloodthistle ~ Race:Blood Elf ~ Use: Increased damage and healing done by magical spells and effects by a small amount for 10 min."
I do thank you for making a list of the herbs and locations. {{bows}} Thanks very much for that! =D

The guide is being wikified as we speak. First part is done and viewable here:

http://wow.allakhazam.com/wiki/Herbalism_Guide_Part_1_%28WoW%29

Bear in mind, the formatting is not complete yet but you can see how it will look in general. Given the sheer size, I am having to break it up into several sections but they will be listed in order.

Not bad - It would be nice if the individual plants were linked - for example the very first entry is Bloodvine - it would probably be better as [wowitem=19726]Bloodvine[/wowitem]. I know that's a lot of work, but I'll help if possible.

Ok Mike, part two is up foir you based on your post here. You can see it at the following: http://wow.allakhazam.com/wiki/Herbalism_Guide_Part_2_%28WoW%29

Now, if you prefer a different format, you or anyone else is more than free to go in and move things around or whatever, this is just a standard format I use when I convert someones guide here. You also have credit at the top and bottom for it. So, should you want to do columns different, colors etc, feel free.

Ok, all the herbs should be linked now but let me know if they aren't or go ahead and link them in if you like. It's your guide, I simply wikified it so whatever you would like to do is totally cool with me.

I do have a few changes I'm gonna make to the layout, looks like I have a few boo boos in there.

Now, please forgive me if I'm wrong here, as I'm going from memory...

In your list of herbs, and their uses, you list Dreaming Glory being used in Super Healing Potions, and Netherbloom being used in Super Mana Potions.

I have something tickling the back of my head suggesting that a Super Mana Potion is 2 x Dreaming Glory, and 1 x Felweed, whilst a Super Healing Potion is Netherbloom and Felweed (cannot remember quantities, sorry).

That is to say, you may have inadvertently switched the two types of pots in that list.

Great guide, but it could help if we knew where to go when we are looking for a specific herb. Some herbs are sparsely scattered in a zone, while they may be abundantly placed in another zone. If we had a list of each herb showing the 'best' zone to find it in, it could save plenty of time. I note this only because I am raising my Thorium Brotherhood faction and needing lots of Kingsblood it would have been nice to know which zone had the greatest concentration of it. But aside from this, the guide was immensely helpful!

IF you follow the links, they have maps of each area that have spawns. Not sure if they have the number of spawns, that helps alot.

Would be useful to see Frost Lotus, Ice Thorn, Lichbloom, Adder's Tongue (mentioned above), and their respective drop zones. My herbalist has been in Borean Tundra and Howling Fjord with minor exposure to Grizzly Hills and some instances. However, he is already 450 herbalism.

A couple points:

-Lichbloom, Ice Thorn, Adder's Tongue, Gold Clover, Tiger Lily, and Telandre's Rose can be gathered from mobs in Nexus.
-Frost Lotus can be gathered from any Northern Herb (I've even gotten one from Gold Clover in the Fjord).
-Frost Lotus is a plant as well.
