Herbalism Icon WoW Icon update.png Herbalism (Profession)
List of herbsHarvestable mobsHerbalism questsTechniquesTrainersHerb bags

In World of Warcraft, herb can mean one of three things:

  1. A plant or part of a plant that usually serves as an ingredient in some profession (usually Alchemy) but sometimes has some other use, as with certain quest items and the reagents for a druid's [Rebirth] spell.
  2. A plant resource node which can be harvested by those with the Herbalism profession to gain the above item or items.
  3. The act of harvesting such a resource with Herbalism. This is used primarily in reference to "herb skinning": the harvesting of herbs from the corpses of plant monsters.

Below is a table of all nodes that those with the herbalism profession may loot, the color code at different skill levels, what they yield, and where they are primarily found.

For a listing of what herbs are in each area see Herbs by Area.

Herb info

Icon-time.svg This section contains information that is out-of-date.

Since patch 6.0.2, most classic herb nodes are accessible to anyone even with a skill of 1. However, low-skilled players will acquire petals, stems, leaves or brambles instead of the full item.
