What does the rank (stars) mean in Herbalism profession?

There are up to 3 ranks for each plant gathering. Each rank will give you a certain benefit.
Remember that you don´t have any rank at start. The first time you gather a specific plant you will get a quest as well. Completing this quest will upgrade your gathering to level 1 on that specific herb.

Rank 1 is the same for all plants: Gather the specific herb more effectively.
Rank 2 is the same for all plants: Find rare materials when gathering the specific herb.
Rank 3 differs between the plants:
– Aethril: Gathering herbs in the Broken Isles may cause additional plants to appear.
– Dreamleaf: Standing near a Dreamleaf will grant you a powerful buff.
– Foxflower: Gathering Foxflower will summon friendly foxes to fight alongside you.
– Fjarnskaggl: Find rare materials when gathering fjarnskaggl.
– Starlight Rose: Attempting to gather a starlight rose will always succeed.
– Felwort: Gather seeds from all Broken Isles herbs.

Extra cool stuff

Discovered some stuff while gathering. This is during Legion Alpha.

Fox spawns – Getting even more Foxflower
When picking up a Foxflower, there is a chance a fox spawns and runs around you for a while before he runs off. He drops several Foxflowers for you to step on (pick up). Meaning, if you get a fox spawning, you will get much more Foxflower than a usual loot.

Luck of Lotus buff
Picking up Foxflower in Highmountain will give you a buff called Luck of Lotus which gives you a higher chance to find extra treasure from creature in Pandaria it says in alpha version, but most likely it will be in the Broken Isles.

Flower add attacking you!
When gathering Dreamleaf there is a chance a big flower (Nightmare Creeper) will spawn and attack you. Killing it and looting will give you around 8 extra dreamleafs-

Foxflower Farming

I made this Foxflower farming guide to help out players who want to farm the herbs instead of buying them from the Auction House. You can pick this Herb from skill 1, you will get the same number of herbs as if you had Herbalism 100.

One of the new features in World of Warcraft Legion is that herbs have ranks now. You can get the new ranks from quest items that you get by picking [Foxflower] . Once you finish the quest you get from the herb and the follow up quest, you will get the new rank.

Rank 1 : Gather Foxflower more effectively.
Rank 2 : You can get [Blood of Sargeras] when gathering Foxflower.
Rank 3 : Gather even more materials from each Foxflower plant.

Foxflower

If you have the [Sky Golem] mount, you can use that instead of the Demonsteel Stirrups, and if your class has a tanking spec, you should switch to that while farming, so you won’t get dazed and you don’t have to use Stonehide Leather Barding.

Don’t forget to enchant your gloves with [Enchant Gloves – Legion Herbalism]! This enchant brings gathering time down from 1.5 seconds to 0.5 seconds. This is really important if you gather while mounted, because mobs can still interrupt your casting.

Highmountain

This herbs is heavily farmed on high population realms, and sometimes you can’t even find a single herb if you try to farm at peak times.

The layout of this zone is really bad for farming herbs because there are a lot of mobs you can’t avoid, and there are mountains everywhere. It will take a few laps in the zone until you learn this farming route.

Don’t forget to use the [Majestic Elderhorn Hoof] if you have it. (30% increased mount speed for 10 minutes, but it doesn’t stack with Leystone Hoofplates) It’s dropped by Majestic Elderhorn.

Important! A fox can spawn and start runing away while leaving Foxflowers on the ground. You have to run over them to loot them.

If you barely find any herb, it means someone is already farming there. Try the alternative route below. (This route and the next ones is for players without flying mount.)

The two red X are flight paths, so once you reach the end of the path at Felbane Camp, fly to Prepfoot, then there is a path there were you can get down to the foot of the mountain. Blind Marshlands is a level 110 area, so lowers levels should skip that part and just head to Felbane camp right away.

If you have flying mount and use the recommended enchants above, you might farm too fast and you need to take a bigger loop around the zone to allow the herbs to respawn. So use this map below:

Do you want to reach level 60 fast?

I recommend Zygor’s Leveling Guide. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quest is included. You’ll never have to switch back to a website, or even the in-game main map to see where you have to go or what’s next. The guide is available for both Horde and Alliance.

I use Zygor’s guide for leveling and I highly recommend it.
