Herbalism in Wrath of the Lich King Classic is one of the three gathering professions, meaning that resources will be gathered primarily from herb nodes in the open world, raids, and dungeons in Northrend. Wrath Classic Herbs are most commonly used for the Alchemy or Inscription professions. But even without these professions, collecting herbs can make a significant profit by trading them between players or selling them at auction.

Best Professions to mix with Herbalism

WotLK Herbalism simply pairs with both Alchemy and Inscription, since herbs are the main resource for them.

Alchemy has been a very important profession for past expansions and has remained important in this one. Therefore, it remains a good choice for combination with Herbalism.

Inscription the brand-new profession added in Lich King Classic, also has a tangible impact in this expansion because you can create Glyphs and extremely strong trinkets which everyone will need. More information about you can find in our guide for this profession.

Best race and class for Herbalism

Only Taurens have racial ability Cultivation, +15 Herbalism.

Druids are the best Herbalists because they can herb while in Flight Form and are able to collect herb faster than other classes.
