Purple Lotus is a very rare herb only found in Felwood. It’s a great herb to farm if there isn’t any currently on your auction house because there are a few alchemist formulas that require Purple Lotus. You will need at least level 210 Herbalism before you can farm Purple Lotus. It sells best in stacks of 1, 10 and 20 on the auction house but may take a long time to sell. Check the prices on the auction house before you farm too much of this stuff. It can sell for anywhere from 1 to 20 gold per herb, so it’s definitely worth checking out.
Update: You can make a lot of gold with Purple Lotus, but if you want to step it up and make thousands of gold you should read my personal favorite guide.
Where to Farm Purple Lotus
Farming Purple Lotus in Felwood
Felwood is the only place you’ll find an abundance of Purple Lotus, but that doesn’t mean it’s hard to find. It’s not scattered all over the zone like most herbs, instead you’ll find it in a few specific places. Make sure you’re at least level 45 before trying to farm this stuff and check out the farming route below for details:
Tip: Have you ever wondered how players have so many level 85s or how they can level an 85 so quickly? I use and strongy recommend Zygor's in-game leveling addon which will enable you to level in 5 days of played time. You can find a free version of it here.
