WoW Classic: Herbalism Leveling Guide

Herbalism is one of 12 Professions in World of Warcraft: Classic. The easiest way to start learning Herbalism is to simply talk to a guard in any Capital City. They will give you directions to an Herbalism Trainer who will help you get started.

It is important to note that you can only train your Herbalism skill with herbalists corresponding to your skill level.

Herbalism combines nicely with Alchemy, providing easy access to crafting materials, or with another gathering profession, like Mining or Skinning.

Why Choose Herbalism?

Herbalism is very useful for every class in the game, especially if you want to create potions for your adventures.

It's a good idea to combine Herbalism with Alchemy, which allows for potions to be created.

You can also earn money from Alchemy if you decide to sell your potions at the Auction House.
