If you are an Herbalist right now, it’s the perfect time to farm and get some extra funding for Cataclysm. With many players refocusing on Inscription after the recent Glyph changes in Patch 4.0.1, herb supplies have fallen short and demand has risen.
I spent a couple days farming herbs in Azeroth and Outlands, bringing in some surprisingly high gold per hour totals. I wasn’t really aware the prices for stacks of herbs were going to be as much as they were, and I really wasn’t aware of how quickly they were going to sell!
I understand every server has a different economy, and every server has different suppy and demand fluctuations, but this is worth looking into if you are an Herbalist. Here are the herbs I farmed, and the prices per stack I sold them for:
- Earthroot – 20g
- Mageroyal – 20-40g
- Briarthorn – 30-40g
- Bruiseweed – 20-40g
- Kingsblood – 30-50g
- Wild Steelbloom – 30-50g
- Liferoot – 20-40g
- Fadeleaf – 40-60g
- Goldthorn – 50-70g
- Khadgar’s Whisker – 40-60g
- Purple Lotus – 50-70g
- Sungrass – 60-85g
- Golden Sansam – 70-90g
- Dreamfoil – 60-85g
- Mountain Silversage – 70-90g
For those doubters out there, I really wish I could tell you I am exaggerating, but the truth of the matter is that there have been zero to only a few stacks of these herbs on the AH at any given time. I lucked out with these prices, and raked in about 2k gold over a few days from several hours of herbing. Hopefully you can experience the same good luck!
The zones I hit heaviest were:
- Duskwood - Mageroyal, Briarthorn, Bruiseweed, Kingsblood, Wild Steelbloom
- Arathi Highlands – Goldthorn, Fadeleaf, Kingsblood, Wild Steelbloom, Khadgar’s Whisker
- Hinterlands – Goldthorn, Sungrass, Purple Lotus, Golden Sansam
- Helfire Peninsula – Golden Sansam, Dreamfoil, Mountain Silversage, Felweed, Dreaming Glory
As always, if I find more ways to bring in extra chunks of gold, I will be sure to post them for you guys!
