Classic WoW Herbalism Leveling Guide 1-300

This Classic WoW Herbalism Leveling Guide will show you the fastest way to level your Herbalism profession from 1 to 300.

Herbalism goes well with Alchemy because you can use the herbs you pick and craft potions or elixirs. Make sure to check out my Classic WoW Alchemy leveling guide if you want to level Alchemy. But keep in mind, this Herbalism guide is made to level your profession as fast as possible, so sometimes the herbs you will farm might not be the best for Alchemy.

I recommend using Zygor's 1-60 Leveling Guide if you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game, all the detail that you need to complete the quests are included. You’ll never have to switch back to a website, or even the in-game main map to see where you have to go or what’s next.

Once you reach Herbalism 50, you can learn Herbalism Journeyman from your trainer.

Herbs in these zones: Mageroyal, Briarthorn, Stranglekelp

Briarthorn requires herbalism 70, and Stranglekelp requires herbalism 85, so you can't pick them right away.


This zone is so big that you can use more than one route here.

Loch Modan


115 - 170

Don't forget to visit your trainer when you reach 150!

Herbs in these zones: Bruiseweed, Wild Steelbloom, Stranglekelp, Kingsblood, Liferoot

Kingsblood requires herbalism 125, and Liferoot requires herbalism 150, so you can't pick them right away.
