Just a real quick blog post to help you folks get a head start on levelling herbalism in Cataclysm. Deep in Ashenvale is a quest that opens up a vendor that sell the only armour that adds +5 to your herbalism skill. Combined with Enchant Gloves – Advanced Herbalism this can add upto 10 herbalism skill points meaning no more passing herbs that would normally be a few skill points out of reach. These all stack and for our Tauren friends can be very powerful. The pattern is an Alliance only vendor so can be a really good seller on the neutral AH.
Respawn on pattern is less than 16 minutes as evidenced in my chat log shown above.
