Special Herb Locations
Herbs are found in nearly every zone in Azeroth, as well as inside some dungeons. To gather herbs, you must learn the Herbalism skill as one of your two primary professions. No special tools are required. Each herb has a level range that includes when you can start picking the herb, when you will get skill points, and where you have mastered this level and no longer get skill points.

It is possible to fail in Herbalism, but when you do, it simply means you didn’t successfully pick the herb. The herb does not go away. Just try it again. It may take a few tries if you’re right on the edge of the start level, but you can try as often as you need.
