Dragonflight Herbalism Leveling Guide 1 - 100
Leveling Herbalism in Dragonflight is much slower than in previous expansions because the normal herbs will stop giving you skill points early. You will have to rely on rare herbs to get skill points. But, if you have little competition and are lucky with the rare herbs, you can probably reach 100 in 3-4 hours. It also depends on how well you use the new Dragon riding skills.
There are 5 types of rare herbs:
- Decayed: Gives a few Rousing Decay
- Frigid: Gives a few Rousing Frost
- Lush: You get more ores.
- Windswept: Gives a few Rousing Air
- Titan-Touched: Gives a few Rousing Order
After around 60, these will be the only herbs that give you skill points. They spawn randomly instead of normal herbs, so there is no special farming route to gather them.
Windswept herbs are the only ones that you should look out for. These herbs will knock you back two times after you gather them, so if you are at high ground, you will die from fall damage.
If you have auto loot turned on, you can counter these herbs by spamming your mount keybind while gathering the herb. You will immediately start casting your mount when you finish gathering the herb, and you should be able to mount up before the debuff knocks you back.
When you hit 25, you will unlock Specializations. I would suggest having a little bit of a look through the specializations. Spend some time reading through them, then choose which direction you might want to go.
You will need 50 skill points to unlock the second specialization and 100 for the third.
These routes are not as strict because the herbs are basically everywhere, so you can pretty much go off-route, and you will find herbs everywhere. But I generally followed these routes to level my Herbalism.
