Herbalism goes well with Alchemy because you can use the herbs you pick and make potions. If you want to level Alchemy, check out my Alchemy Leveling Guide. But keep in mind, this leveling 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.
If you are low on gold, I recommend you to try this Gold Making Guide, it can help you to make loads of gold.
If you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt, I recommend you to use a leveling guide. You can level your character to level 120 in 8 days with this guide.
Learning BfA Herbalism
The new BfA Herbalism skill is named differently for the two factions, but the name is the only difference between them.
- Horde: You can find Jahden Fla in Dazar'alor at the Terrace of Crafters.
- Alliance: Declan Senal is located in Boralus at the Tradewinds Market.
You can walk up to a guard in Dazar'alor or Boralus then ask where the Herbalism trainer is located. This will place a red marker on your map at the trainer's location.
How to speed up leveling
Battle for Azeroth introduces three new items that you can use to speed up farming herbs. You should use these if you can find them cheap at the Auction House, or craft it yourself if you can.
- [Monel-Hardened Stirrups] - You can gather while mounted.
- [Monel-Hardened Hoofplates] - Increase mount speed by 20%.
- [Coarse Leather Barding] - Prevents you from being dazed. (mobs won't dismount you)
The one I would recommend the most is [Monel-Hardened Stirrups], which let's you gather hebs while mounted. Every mob scales to your level in Battle for Azeroth, so it will be hard to avoid the mobs attacking you while you try to farm herbs. If you have the [Sky Golem] mount, you can use that instead of the Monel-Hardened Stirrups
If your class has a tanking spec, you should switch to that while farming, so you won't get dazed and you don't have to use Coarse Leather Barding.
Don't forget to enchant your gloves with [Enchant Gloves - Zandalari Herbalism] or [Enchant Gloves - Kul Tiran Herbalism]! This enchant brings gathering time down from 1.5 seconds to 0.5 seconds. This is really important if you gather while mounted, because mobs can still interrupt your casting.
Leveling BfA Herbalism (1-150)
I will the 3 zones below where I think there are the mobs herbs, but you can level in any other zone. Check out my farming guides for alternative routes:
- Anchor Weed farming
- Akunda's Bite farming
- Winter's Kiss farming
- Sea Stalk farming
- Riverbud farming
- Siren's Pollen farming
- Star Moss farming
Dustvar - route 1
This route goes through an Alliance town, so horde players might have some trouble here, but you can just run past the guards with mount, they shouldn't kill you.
Dustvar - route 2
Use this rotue if someone is already farming at the first route, or if you are having trouble going through the Alliance town.
You can expect a lot of competition here.
I hope you liked this BfA Herbalism leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 150!
