Item Level: 60
Skill Requirement: Herbalism Level 300
Recommended Level: 58+
Felweed is the first herb you will find in the Outlands, you also will not find it anywhere else except in the Outlands. This makes it a profitable herb to farm, since not many people travel through the Dark Portal to go to the Outlands anyways, especially to farm herbs. Herbalists who level from 60 to 70 will find a lot of Felweed but usually that’s not enough to supply the demand from players leveling alchemy and inscription. Felweed is usually the cheapest of the level 60-70 herbs so it is most often purchased to mill for Nether Pigment (for inscription). Check your auction house prices to determine if Felweed is a good herb for you to farm.
You can farm it as soon as you can get into the Outlands, which is usually level 58. You will also need level 300 Herbalism and an epic mount is a huge bonus.
Update: You can make a lot of gold with Felweed, but if you want to step it up and make thousands of gold you should read my personal favorite guide.
Where to Farm Felweed
Farming Felweed in Hellfire Peninsula
The best place to farm Felweed is in Hellfire Peninsula. You will also find a lot of Golden Sansam but by no means is it also a good place to farm Golden Sansam. There’s not really a good route to follow, Felweed is scattered just about everywhere in Hellfire Peninsula, so you’ll have to do a lot of zig zagging and broad scans of areas. I came up with this route specifically for farming Felweed and it works pretty good. It covers the high density areas and avoids the areas without a lot of herbs.
Farming Felweed in Nagrand
The next best place to farm Felweed is in Nagrand. It’s all over the place. There’s almost as much here as there is in Hellfire Peninsula. It’s a tough call though as to which zone to go to. I would recommend you try both yourself and see which one works best for you. Just like in Hellfire Peninsula you will want to do a lot of zig zagging. This route should help a lot:
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.
