Botany is the profession that gains knowledge by gathering wild plants, herbs and mushrooms. These ingredients are used to craft potions and poisons using Brewing.
To begin Botany you don't need any training, skill, tool or recipe. You simply need to interact with a level 1 herb and collect the resources. As you level up your skill in botany you will be able to collect higher level herbs.
Herbs are found throughout the world and spawn in specific locations based on the type of plant it is. Other players and you will race to loot each herb the fastest. However, every herb does respawn eventually.
