WoW Herbalism in the Jade Forest

Updated on July 6, 2014

The herbalism profession in the World of Warcraft can earn you a lot of gold in various ways. You can sell the herbs as they are on the auction house, turn them into potions and elixers, or mill them and use them for inscription supplies.

The Jade Forest is a fantastic area to gather Pandaria herbs. They are the lowest level of Pandaria herbs but they are still very useful and very bountiful in the Jade Forest area. You can gather several stacks of herbs (Green Tea Leaf and Rain Poppy) rather quickly just from running around on a land mount.
