This World of IndoHerbal Guide is an initial insight into the interesting and lucrative profession of herbalism in the World and will begin to teach you how to best make use of this profession, and how to level your skills as fast as possible.
The first thing that you should do when levelling herbalism is to go along to the auction house and buy yourself Enchant Gloves - Gatherer. This enchant should be applied to the gloves and will allow the wearer +5 bonus to their herbalism skill. This is very useful for getting to those herbs that would otherwise be just out of reach. There is nothing worse than getting to a new area only to find that you can't harvest some of the herbs as your skill level is just a few too low. This enchant will ensure this situation never happens.
The second thing that needs to be considered is the other profession that you will choose. This is important as it will determine whether or not you will be selling your herbs or making things from them.
Herbs can be used in the manufacturing of various types of World of Warcraft items. For example you can make potions or flasks which you drink to give you skill benefits, or the herbs can be turned into inks which can then be used for making inscriptions which will also give you skill benefits. If this is your plan then you should follow this IndoHerbal herbalism guide that tells you all the information that you need.
