WoW Cataclysm Herbalism Guide

If you're going to grind your Herbalism to 525 to level Alchemy you should read this guide first, otherwise you might find yourself wasting a lot of time farming.

You can start leveling herbalism in any of the 1-10 zones. Run around Durotar until you're level 75 and then visit the nearest large city for an Herbalism trainer.

Level 1-75 (Silverleaf, Peacebloom, Earthroot and Mageroyal)

If you're power leveling Herbalism and you have your epic mount head back to The Barrens and keep collecting until you're level 150. Stay in the northern Barrens until ~110, then head south. If you're on a PvP server and you're Alliance you will be better off going to Silverpine Forest for this.

Level 75-150 (Earthroot, Briarthorn and Bruiseweed)

Next you're going to want to head towards Arathi Highlands where you will stay until level 225. On your way head to the Wetlands and get at least 20 levels so that you can collect Fadeleaf and Goldthorn when you get to Arathi Highlands.

Level 150-170 (Kingsblood, Liferoot and Bruiseweed)

Level 170-225 (Fadeleaf, Goldthorn, Khadgar's Whiskers)

Once you're level 225 head to Feralas where you'll stay until 275. Stay south during the lower levels (the first few will be slow, then you'll be able to pick Sungrass and this will become one of the quickest 50 levels).

Level 225-275 (Goldthorn, Liferoot, Sungrass, Purple Lotus, and Golden Samsan)

At 275 it's time to head to Western and Eastern Plaguelands. These 25 levels will come very quickly especially if you have an epic mount. Start at Chillwind Camp and run towards Light Hope's Chapel. If you're not 300 by the time you get there do a few loops around the scars and you'll be set. Feel free to stick around the Plaguelands until level 325.

Level 275-300 (Plaguebloom and Others)

You'll find tons of Felweed in Hellfire Peninsula.

Level 300-350 (Felweed)

When you hit 350 I suggest heading over to Northrend to finish up your last 100 levels.

Level 350-400 (Goldclover)

There's lots of herbs in this zone but also lots of mobs so watch out.

Level 400-435 (Goldclover, Tiger Lily, and Adder's Tongue)

These 15 levels should go pretty fast.

Level 435-450 (Lichbloom and Icethorn)

Levels 450-525
