A Guide to Quest Herbs

Post by Feral / Blackfall on Sun Feb 16, 2014 7:01 pm

This is just a listing I've been drawing up of plants, herbs and cures, poisons and so on not found in Herbalism, but rather in various quests throughout WoW. It's hardly comprehensive, but I figured that if anyone wanted RP fuel (i.e. if you've a particular malady that needs remedying and a long journey for a cure is in store, or if you're in a zone on a campaign between events and gathering something up might be useful), that such a list might come in mildly handy.  I've a cross-referencing list afterward so you can search by zone or use if you like.

Additional notes: If you know of any not on this list, shout and I'll try to add them as soon as possible; same thing goes for any errors. Some OOC information has been given a slightly IC flavor. Plain and common things such as carrots aren't in here.  I've tried to be as accurate as I can but some things are unclear, ex. whether something is magic, or simply natural in its healing properties. Lastly, I'm not suggesting that everyone must take things like burning seeds or Emerald Acorns IC--it's just there for the sake of being as complete a list as possible. Use it if you want, how you want, but common sense applies.

Key
*            - Magic
*            - Healing
*            - Poison
*            - Dark Magic / Plague


Aloe Thistle *
Description - Spiked, thick green leaves growing in clusters
Location - Karnum's Glade, Desolace
Uses - Unspecified, but if similar to reality, then the liquid within may be used topically for burns and other skin issues.
Source - Quest: A Time to Reap

Azure Snapdragon *
Description - Deep blue, faintly-glowing orchid-like plants with violet-blue, oak-like leaves
Location - Near Azure Watch, Azuremyst Isle
Uses - The bulbs of these rare plants are claimed by some to be a panacea, or cure-all. They are used to waken a night elf from her coma, though mental trauma seems to knock her back out, so the herb's efficacy could be debated.
Source - Quest: An Alternative Alternative

Bileberries *
Description - Disgusting fruits with pus-like ichor and leathery skin
Location - Blackhorn's Penance, Mount Hyjal
Uses - Harvested from purple, orchid-like plants known as Wailing Weeds, which are corrupted by demonic presence. These plants fight back and are mobile once attacked, and fighting one will agitate others nearby as well. The berries, once harvested, are crushed into a pulpy liquid which absolutely stinks. This "bottled Bileberry Brew" can be poured down the throat of the newly dead to reanimate them as a thrall, for example for questioning, for a mere minute or two. The body will remain broken, voice wavering, and mind subjugated.
Source - Quests: Seeds of Their Demise/A New Master

Bitterblossom * * (?)
Description - A tall, stalklike reedy plant with sagging foliage and spiky, lavender-colored flowers
Location - Goldrinn's Shrine, Mount Hyjal
Uses - The buds are heavy with stored liquid; the plant grows right around the water's edge. It is combined with Stonebloom and Darkflame Embers (a cool-to-the-touch stone even when still burning, found in Twilight braziers) to create a draught which, when drunk, snaps Old-God-brainwashed people of various races from their state. It is unknown whether it can cure advanced madness, or merely wipes away brainwashing.  The "cleansing draught" must be boiled, and is chunky and reeks of rotted cabbage.
Source - Quests: From the Mouth of Madness/Free Your Mind, the Rest Follows

Blackroot *  
Description - A grassy herb growing along riverbanks
Location - Western rivers of Grizzly Hills
Uses - The juice of this plant is a laxative.
Source - Quest: Just Passing Through

Bloodberries *    
Description - Red berries on thick green bushes
Location - Isle of Quel'Danas
Uses - This bush grows wild in many areas of Azeroth, and has long been considered merely a nuisance. Those exposed to the power of the Sunwell, however, and thus potentially other arcane sources, can be distilled into an elixir that is consumed to enhance one's natural abilities.
Source - Quest: Open for Business

Bloodbloom *
Description - Small leafy plant, green and red, with hues of orange and violet
Location - Valley of the Four Winds
Uses - This plant leaches minerals out of the soil, leading to its dark crimson tint. It is used along with Cave Lily, Ghostcap and Violet Lichen to create a "wounding poison" used on Virmen.
Source - Quest: Haohan's Vote III: Pure Poison

Bloodkelp *    
Description - A reddish seaweed
Location - Carried by the naga of Alcaz Island, Dustwallow Marsh
Uses - Bloodkelp can be used as a reagent to power divination spells.  It can also stain clothing red, perhaps finding use as a dye, were it not so difficult to obtain.
Source - Quest: I See Alcaz Island in Your Future

Bloodthistle *    
Description - Small green bush with bright scarlet flowers resembling roses or tulips, with yellow pistils and a pungent smell
Location - Eversong Woods, near areas of high Sindorei magic usage
Uses - This is often used by blood elves to enhance their magical abilities for a short time. It causes withdrawal afterward; frequent users are sometimes known as Thistleheads, and there's some indication that Shattrath, at least, rules Bloodthistle illegal.
Source - Various lore sources, including Quest: Of Thistleheads and Eggs...

Bogblossom *  
Description - A very fragile plant, green with an orange cap
Location - Growing atop the giant mushrooms of Zangarmarsh
Uses - These may explode violently if mishandled. When combined with equal parts ancient lichen and dreaming glory, and then mixed in a vial of moonwell water, Bogblossom creates the Ward of Wakening: a viscous, shimmering potion. When this is forcefed to a druid whose spirit is in the Emerald Dream, it forcibly wakens them, leaving them vulnerable for a time as their spirit returns.
Source - Quest: The Ward of Wakening

Briaroot *  
Description - Unknown
Location - Azshara, presumed
Uses - Carried by the Blackmaw furbolg of Azshara, Briaroot is brewed into a bitter, pungent herbal tea with spicy overtones. This tea will place one into a trancelike state where the imbiber will begin to speak the tongue of the Blackmaw furbolg.
Source - Quest: A Pale Brew

Burning Seed *      
Description - A tiny, brown seed
Location - Firelands
Uses - These seeds emanate power enough to mark them as having come from Nordrassil itself, though they are twisted black by the Firelands' flames, harnessing the essence of fire granted to the Druids of the Flame. Consumption by normal druids twists their feline form, at least, into one of fire.
Source - Item Tooltip

Burstcap Mushroom *    
Description - A soft, spongy fungus, black and pulsating, with sickly-green outgrowths
Location - Zangarmarsh
Uses - These can explode if not handled properly. The Darkspear witch doctor situated in Zangarmarsh insists that these are powerful, and uses them to read omens.
Source - Quest: Burstcap Mushrooms, Mon!

Cactus Apple

Location - Cacti of Durotar
Uses - It is said that nothing will cool you off quicker than a Cactus Apple Surprise made from these fruits. Whether this is a magical effect or a healing one, or simply fresh taste, is unknown.

Uses - Can be used as a replacement for mechanical oil in some machines, as well as nutritional.
Source - Quest: Repairing A-Me 01

Crying Violet *
Description - Small, delicate purple blooms with yellow eyes
Location - Felwood
Uses - These flowers, which shiver their petals at the slightest sound, are used to 'bind words' to carry the voices of the user over a distance to the listener. It may also be used along with other arcanist-favored herbs to infuse glass vials. These vials can then be used to gather and purify fel-corrupted moonwell water, used to cleanse demonic corruption and so on.
Source - Quest: Crying Violet/Purity From Corruption

Dahlia's Tears *
Description - Golden butter-colored flower with broad green leaves
Location - Ruby Dragonshrine, Dragonblight

Darkblossom *
Description - A spiky, dark violet flower with yellow pistil and green leaves
Location - Darkmoon Island

Source - Quest: Doom Weed

Dreadshade *
Description - Red, spike-petaled, green-leaved and -pistiled flower
Location - Venomous Ledge, Dread Wastes
Uses - This musky-scented flower is an extremely potent poison. It is said that even one drop of dreadshade nectar can stop a kuchong's heart. They appear to be safe to handle, but not to eat.  The exception is the local wildlife, who consume dreadshade, causing them to become quite venomous. It is unclear how the wildlife can eat it, however--perhaps having evolved a resistance, or perhaps only certain species are affected.
Source - Quest: A Shade of Dread

Dreamleaf *
Description - Green-leaved, evergreen-looking bush
Location - Around the shrine at the eastern side of the Pools of Purity, Valley of the Four Winds
Uses - A slender-branched sprig of Dreamleaf, coated in sticky leaves, can be brewed with lotus root to make a tea.

Uses - This fungus is infused with the magics of the Emerald Dream, and does not feed from the fel of the pools, but rather works to cleanse it. It can be consumed as a mushroom paste to cleanse fel taint from those afflicted; it seems to bind to the energy while still in the stomach, and is then vomitted back out.
Source - Quest: A Slimy Situation

Moonleaf
Description - A silvery-leafed, bushy plant
Location - Blackwald, Gilneas
Uses - Moonleaf grows on its own or in large patches near the tree Tal'doren. When a feral, uncured worgen is nearby, the scent of this plant aids their mind in growing clear for a time. It is also used in the ritual cure ceremony that allows worgen to gain mastery over their forms.

Location - Eldritch Heights, Dragonblight
Uses - Toxins in Murkweed render the imbiber unconscious, so powerfully so that their spirit is "fooled" (Murkweed elixir is said to separate the body from the soul for a short time), allowing them to enter the "world of the dead" or "world of the forgotten" and speak with the spirits of the dead.

Nice one Feral! I'm aware that there is a guide for every other herb online, but they don't at all divulge on quest herbs and what they do! thanks Very Happy

Fel Cone
As seen in this quest, can be found underneath the tallest branches of Teldrassil. Upon digesting, it seems, these will transform you into a frog with limited ability of regular speech. At least if you're a satyr.

Not so much from quests... But something i noticed from the novel Warcrimes least.

Blood elf smoking a hookah of black lotus and dreaming glory. Suposedly a relaxing combination and it dulls senses.

Know there is mention of some other herbs somewhere but can't be bothered to look for it.

Awesome. I may put in an added section for 'real' herbs, then, not sure yet!

Also, updated the Crying Violet's info with more potential uses.
