[ Professions] Northrend Herbalism and Mining Tracks

taken from »www.almostgaming.com
herbalism
350-385
To learn Grand Master Herbalism at level 350: Alliance can visit either Kirea Moondancer in Valiance Keep (Borean Tundra) or Fayin Whisperleaf in Valgarde (Howling Fjord). Horde must visit Marjory Kains in Vengeance Landing (Howling Fjord).

One of the first herbs you will be able to collect is Goldclover, found in both start areas: Howling Fjord and Borean Tundra:






385+
Once you're level 385 you can begin collecting Talandra's Rose. With a flying mount you can zoom around the south western area of Zul'Drak and get tons of it. It is useful for leveling Alchemy and doing Northrend Alchemy Research. There is a ton of Frozen Orb in the snowy areas of Zul'Drak. I stay away from this area because it doesn't consistently drop much but Goldclover.










Mining
350-400
Remember you must be at least 350 to start mining the regular cobalt nodes, the rich cobalt requires 375.





401-450
You must be 425 to mine Rich Saraonite, you will find Titanium Veins along the way but you must be 450 to mine these. Sholazar Basin is a miner's heaven due to it's structure.

It's also griefer heaven. Inner-faction competion and inter-faction fighting as multiple people decend from their flying mounts onto every nodes that pops. Gen channel was full of QQ & hate. I was amused as I went about my business picking all the flowers.

Make a circle following the geographical features of the zone. I for one am shocked.

Slight correction. Horde can pick up Grand Master herbalism at Warsong Hold as well. Can't tell you the guy's name, but WH has all the GM trainers.

Good write up, i would just like to add that if you use an add on called gatherer it will take away alot of hassle that some of you might be going thru. There is also now a database available for it which is uploaded from wowhead site and shows every single node,herb,treasure there is on map=)

Very good thing and the less people use it the beter it is for us who have it.

The only thing i can say about Basin is that the area it self is very quick to cover on youre flying mount you could be back in forth in circle within maybe 3-5 mins the only problem with that area like someone mention allready is big on daily quets for oracles or shamans which puts it into alot of competition for everyone. Best area would be Storm peaks if you know a good route, i made one for my self and it works like a charm every time in about an hour i get close to a stack of titanium.

Happy hunting=)

THe addons for Cartographer that track nodes for you - what you've found as well as what other people have found - named Cartographer_Mining and _Herbalism, haven't been updated for WotLK. I did find a replacement in Gathermate, which has an import addon you can use to utilize WoWHead's map nodes. Does the same thing for me that the others did before, and it'll work using the regular map as well.

The only caveat is that it can sometimes be tough to see what the node is, but to me that's not a huge isuue - anything my blacksmith doesn't need to level up can be prospected by my JC.

Once you hit 450 though you can find a lot more titanium in storm peaks if you know where to look with a lot less grief.

A question about these addons.Does any addon allow you to only show a specific type of node on the map? An example, only show where Titanium nodes are (I understand that they spawn where Saronite nodes are), but not just "plain" saronite nodes.

AFAIK Titanium can spawn at any saronite node. Gatherer will keep tract of where you personally have found them though.

Nobody has mentioned wintergrasp yet. Besides being the best place to farm all the eternals (shadow/life/water/fire/earth/air) its also a great place to find herbs/mines (including titanium). The only downsides are that you can't fly and you can get ganked even on a pve server.

I'm pretty sure your faction has to hold wintergrasp for you to see the eternal guys (all but life have an associated "Revenant" that is guaranteed to drop 1-3 crystallized version of said Eternal)
»www.wowhead.com/?npcs&filter=na=···97;crv=0

25k hp, non-elite, strung about with normal elemental types that have a much smaller drop rate, but will keep you busy while waiting on the revenants to respawn.

Elemental plateau ver. 2.0 Now with improved ganking!

I was thinking the same thing, I wished I had the ability to gank some people back in the elemental plateau days. But I've read in a few places that the guys don't spawn if your faction doesn't hold the base. That kind of takes the ganking fun out of it in my opinion. I'll have to fly over there next time alliance hold it to see if I can still see the revenants.

Personally, I prefer Ice Crown for mining.

do you enjoy getting your nodes stolen by means of instanced worlds?

I actally like the basin for mining. But icecrown is also pretty densely node packed around the "dug out horseshoe"

I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but I'm getting my bags full in Ice Crown.

EDIT: and, unlike S Basin, the fact that a ground mount won't really do there separates a bunch of lowbies from messing with your ore.

I also have had good success in Icecrown with Saronite and Titanium nodes.
