Legion Herbalism and Mining – Gathering Professions

World of Warcraft Legion gathering professions

What do we know so far?
There are new herbs in Legion



Legion Herbs

The news herbs in Legion are:

  • Starlight Rose
  • Felwort
  • Fjarnskaggl
  • Foxflower
  • Dreamleaf
  • Aethril


Herbalism Techniques

There are three ranks of techniques tied to picking each herb, and they each have special Rank 3 perks like summoning foxes or getting a powerful buff.

Rank 1

Attempts to gather the herb will fail less often

Rank 2

Teaches you how to find rare materials while gathering that herb.

Rank 3

Varies from herb to herb!

  • Starlight Rose: Attempting to gather a starlight rose will always succeed.
  • Felwort: Teaches you how to gather seeds from all Broken Isles herbs.
  • Fjarnskaggl: Mount quickly after gathering any herb in the Broken Isles.
  • Foxflower: Gathering foxflower will summon friendly foxes to fight alongside you.
  • Dreamleaf: Standing near a dreamleaf will grant you a powerful buff.
  • Aethril: Gathering herbs in the Broken Isles may cause additional herbs to appear.


Of particular interest “attempts will fail less often” and “will always succeed”

We’re wondering whether fails will mean you gather nothing, or whether you gather the 1/10th parts of flowers, eg petals/leaves.
