Herbalism Skillup Guide - 1->375

This guide is written to show you where to go to skillup in herbalism. It is meant for players that pick up herbalism later on in the game or players that get stuck on skillups for a while and don’t know where to go.

The way I have constructed this guide is to take you through the areas that have the best herbs for you to skill up on at the different levels, showing the routes on which the herbs are most likely to occur. If you want the coordinates for the herb spawn point I recommend looking up the herb you’re wanting on MapWoW and zooming in – if you click on the herb you get the coords. Alternatively, you can look up the herb on Wowhead and they will show you the number of spawn points in different zones and will even show you the spawn points as dots on a map of the zone - an excellent tool (an example of this would be this excellent overview of where to find  Peacebloom).

To pick up herbalism as one of your trades you need to find a trainer in a city near you. Once you have paid 10Copper to become an Apprentice you will be able to skillup from 1-75.

1->50 PeacebloomSilverleafEarthroot

At first you will only be able to pick two kinds of herbs -  Silverleaf and  Peacebloom. Both of these herbs are in abundance in starting areas so regardless of where you are you can skill up quickly. I’ve made a few maps with my preferred routes for quick skillups. Green routes are for skill 1->20 and blue for 20->50. The blue route includes  Earthroot, which can’t be picked until you have a herbalism skill of 15.

The routes are made to loop and work out approximately with the respawn time – if you’re on an epic mount you might want to combine the two routes though ^.~

I've made routes for each of the starting areas, but I'd strongly recommend Durotar for Horde.

Elwynn Forest (Human)
Teldrassil (Night Elf)
Dun Morogh (Gnome & Dwarf)
Azuremyst Isle (Draenei)

Durotar (Troll & Orc)
Mulgore (Tauren)
Tirisfal Glades (Undead)
Eversong Woods (Blood Elf) (you can also pick the lovely  Bloodthistles here)

At this stage I suggest going back to a trainer and pay to become a Journeyman Herbalist so you can increase your skill to 150. This will cost you 5Silver.
