Starlight Rose Farming with a Level 101

Starlight Rose Farming with a Level 101

Yes, you can do this! and make a fortune! No you don’t need a level 110!

You need:

  • A level 101
  • Some gold to gear them
  • A gathering addon, I prefer Gathermate2 for Legion (optional)
  • Stonehide Barding (optional)
  • Sky Golem Mount (optional)
  • Herbalism
  • A Map (see below!)

This gold guide is not for beginners, because you need gold to invest in gear. It’s gonna cost you quite a lot to gear up, but the rewards in fun are amazing.

Can you make back enough gold in Starlight Roses to pay for your BoEs?  Of course you can, if you sell wisely and make smart buying choices. Your toon can herb forever, and you’re going to have a lot of fun the moment the first level 110 mob comes rushing towards you and you decimate it with your twink.

Herbing at level 101 is not the only thing you can do.  Check out Umren’s youtube vid where he talks about selling boosts to normal dungeons.

 

Prepare:

Work through the questline to get to Dalaran and pick up your Artifact weapon.

Take your level 101 to the Auction House and treat yourself to some Bind on Equip level 101 epics of ilevel 810+

Off to Suramar

Take your kitted up level 101 alt to Suramar

Jump off Dalaran

Swim to Suramar, hop on your Azure/Crimson Water Strider mount if you have one

Head up to the farm spot

Stop to pick up the flight path at Irongrove Retreat

Stick to the road unless you want to be eaten by …well.. everything.

Farming Starlight Rose

NOTE: This is not the best Starlight Rose Map!

This is the best Starlight Rose Map for a level 101

It avoids mobs, keeps you out of danger, and lets you gather a ton of Starlight Roses

Here’s the map from a more detailed perspective.

Mind this guy

Follow the road back to Irongrove Retreat

screenshot_207

Take the path towards Suramar City, then turn left down here. This area is rich in Starlight Rose. When you have explored this area, turn BACK to Irongrove Retreat.

Keep checking the left hand side of the road as you head back to your starting point.

 

Helpful tips

Stonehide Barding is useful for when you are mounted (on a sky golem) and want to run away from mobs without being dazed.

A night elf has shadowmeld ability which can work in an emergency.

At level 101 with BoE gear you can take down a level 110. Probably not a pack of them! Be careful out there.

Bots like to fish here. Report the bastards.

Bears that are asleep, stay asleep. Bears that are sniffing at trees eat twinks and don’t even give you any loot.

Travelform, ghostwolf, and aspect of the cheetah all help.

Bodyguards are assholes that aggro everything. Leave them at home.

Avoid the Ettin, Avoid Rauren.

Need an addon to keep track whether a herbalism add has spawned or not? There’s an addon included in my addon pack.

 

Party Farming is a thing

Grab your guildies, grab your friends, whatever their level (you can protect them!) and go farming.

You can all herb the same node, and if someone is a miner, they can have the ore too.

Bring 4 friends, and you get FIVE TIMES THE LOOT.

 

Blood of Sargeras

Blood of Sargeras drops from Starlight Rose.
