Below is a detailed walk-through on how to level Herbalism 1-600 the easiest and quickest. Herbalism doesn't take too much effort and at higher levels can be quite profitable especially in Mists of Pandaria with current prices. This Herbalism leveling 1-600 guide is as complete as I can make it. If you aren't leveling Alchemy you should make 3,500g or more from selling the herbs on the Auction House you farm to skill up which of course will ultimately depend on your server's prices.

WoW Herbalism Guide 1-600 Leveling | Herbalism Guide 1-70 - Apprentice Herbalism

  • Start by learning Apprentice Herbalism. This requires level 5. You can ask a guard in any major city to find where an Herbalism trainer is located.
  • Next, head out to any starting area and begin leveling Herbalism. The first 70 levels will come quick and are extremely easy.

    Although I only show Elwynn Forest and Tirisfal Glades below, players can easily level 1-70 in any starting area. These are mainly suggested for the flow of the guide and typical leveling areas.

  • Once you reach skill level 70, go to your trainer and learn Journeyman Herbalism. This requires level 10 and will allow you to reach Herbalism skill level 150.

  • Even though Hillsbrad is mainly a Horde zone and possibly a bit higher in level than where you'd be leveling your character, I really suggest going there even if you're Alliance since this is by far the best place to level 70-150 easily using one zone. Using one zone will save tons on your travel time and thereby make getting to 525 quicker with less headaches.
  • Start by leveling your Herbalism following the 'green route'. Once you hit skill level 125, enter the red area and farm that until 150.
  • Herbalism 70-150

  • Once you hit skill level 150, head back to the trainer and learn Expert Herbalism. This requires level 20 and will allow you to reach skill level 225.

  • When you first get into either Western Plaguelands or Feralas you won't be able to farm Khadgar's Whisker until you reach skill level 160. These first 10 levels, or 5 with a glove enchant, will go super quick so don't sweat it too much. If you plan to go to Thousand Needles to continue your leveling, learn Artisan Herbalism and continue leveling until 230 before going on.

  • Once you reach skill level 225, go to the trainer and learn Artisan Herbalism before changing zones. Artisan Herbalism requires level 35 and will allow you to reach Herbalism skill level 300.

  • Here your going to be hitting up Eastern Plaguelands from 225-285 or Thousand Needles 230-285. Eastern Plaguelands is pretty good and you should have no problems leveling here but the last 10 or so points may be a bit annoying because things will start to green and grey out which is why I prefer Thousand Needles. The place is really awesome and filled with Sungrass. You'll need skill level 230 or 225 plus the +5 enchant to gloves.
  • Herbalism 225-285

  • If you don't have a flying mount, take the green line straight down Southeast until reaching the red square. Turn around and head back up until you reach 285. Make sure to go into both Twilight places (you'll have to swim) so you can get all the herbs possible.
  • Herbalism 225-285

  • Once you reach skill level 285, go to the trainer and learn Master Herbalism. Master Herbalism requires level 40 and will allow you to reach Herbalism skill level 375.

  • For skill levels 285-325 you'll want to head to Swamp of Sorrows. This zone is awesome and is packed with herbs everywhere. I have drawn a general route but once you get there you'll see that you really don't need one since the herbs are scattered about all over the place.
  • Herbalism 285-325

  • For here, you could go to Outlands after reaching 300 but Swamp of Sorrows is super easy to farm in and allows you to skip Hellfire Peninsula completely. I have included the Hellfire Peninsula map just in case but you shouldn't need it.
  • Herbalism 300-325

  • I've listed Zangarmarsh and Terrokar Forest below, but I've found Zangarmarsh to be a bit better.
  • Once you reach skill level 350, go to a trainer and learn Grand Master Herbalism. Grand Master Herbalism requires level 55 and will allow you to reach skill level 450.

  • Depending on your preference, you can go to either Nothrend starting areas; Howling Fjord or Borean Tundra. However, the zone after this that I suggest is Sholazar Basin which is just above Borean Tundra.

  • Sholazar Basin was one of the best farming zones for herbs back in Wrath. This also makes it great for leveling herbalism to 435 and beyond.
  • Herbalism 400-435

  • Once you reach skill level 435 or more, go to a trainer and learn Illustrious Grand Master Herbalism. Illustrious Grand Master Herbalism requires level 75 and will allow you to reach skill level 525.

  • Once you finish leveling Herbalism to 435, head to the new Cataclysm starting area, Mount Hyjal. This place is very easy to farm in and shouldn't take you long to get to 475.
  • Herbalism 425-475

  • Once you finish leveling Herbalism to 475, head to the new Cataclysm zone, Deepholm. This place was nerfed a little bit but is still very good. It requires you to be level 82 so if for some reason you want to hit 525 before that, stay in Mount Hyjal until 500 and then go to the rivers in Uldum for Whiptail.
  • Herbalism 475-525

WoW Herbalism Guide 1-600 Leveling | Herbalism Guide 500-600 - Zen Master Herbalism

  • When you get to 500 make sure to train Zen Master Herbalism. You'll need to be level 80. Then, go to the Jade Forest to farm Green Leaf Tea. This herb is everywhere and it should take you no time at all to reach 525. Follow the path and it'll lead you into Rain Poppy which will get you from 525-545.
  • Herbalism 500-545

    Next up is Silkweed which will get you from 545 to 575. Just run along the river and cut back up north into and over Vale of Eternal Blossoms.

    Herbalism 545-575

    Pass through Vale and into Kun-Lai Summit. Start farming Snow Lily by following the path on the map below. You will reach 600 in no time.
