Mageroyal and the Best Routes for Farming Them as of 8.2

the best routes for farming mageroyal

Mageroyal can be herbed from a few different zones, but there’s one place that excels in giving you all you’ll ever need in a small amount of time: Hillsbrad Foothills.

For some reason, I can remember always wanting to farm this herb, but I’m not sure if it was because it went for a nice chunk on the auction house, I needed it for another profession, or because I liked competing with others to obtain the most.

In fact, I believe this is one of the items I farmed for my “Itemathon” series I thought about doing. When items began stacking in 200s, that plan was obviously nixed. I don’t want to say it’s beyond my farming skills, but I already overload my guild bank with nonsense.

Although, I will say, if people are interested in me doing such a thing, I wouldn’t mind.

I could give it away to people in-game, or simply use all of it for professions/selling purposes, but that depends on all of you. In case you do have an interest, feel free to join TGEXP’s newlsetter–you can chat with me and request things as they come up in e-mails!

Hillsbrad Foothills

This is a Horde zone.

Here’s the zone that will primarily have the most competition for you, whether you’re alliance or horde. Why? Because it nets you the most of this herb (among others) in the shortest amount of time. Also, you usually cross by several rares that may yield good transmog drops. On another note, you can mine, herb, and find rares all at once. Certainly a big bonus, this zone. During specific seasons (or a season) in Hillsbrad, there are events going on, which just adds to the population. To clarify, there’s no need to feel like a population is a bad thing; the more people gathering, the faster the nodes respond for your convenience.

This is an Alliance zone.

Interestingly enough, I never seem to find much competition here, despite there being a ton of places to find this herb. The route also yields sporadic low level herbs, but not much. The only annoyance would be the craters of the land, but that’s mainly a hindrance to players with land mounts. It’s not specifically for flying mounts, but they are best for this area.

Minor Mana Potion
✩ Skill: 25 ✩ Usable ✩ Learned via Profession Trainers
When low-level players worry about their mana dipping too low–(perhaps they’re a healer in a dungeon or a caster in a battleground)–this is one of their go-to items.
  • (1) Mageroyal
  • (1) Silverleaf
  • (1) Crystal Vial
Minor Rejuvenation Potion
✩ Skill: 40 ✩ Usable ✩ Learned via Profession Trainers
With only a minor amount of more ingredients, this potion will regenerate both health and mana. In addition to the mana potions, this is a typical battleground scenario if there’s not a healer within healing distance.
  • (2) Mageroyal
  • (1) Peacebloom
  • (1) Crystal Vial
Elixir of Wisdom
✩ Skill: 90 ✩ Usable ✩ Learned via Profession Trainers
Boost your intellect, and I don’t mean your smartness because you can’t cure stupidity (your own or others), sorry.
  • (1) Mageroyal
  • (2) Briarthorn
  • (1) Crystal Vial
Lesser Mana Potion
✩ Skill: 120 ✩ Usable ✩ Learned via Profession Trainers
Like with the simple mana potion, except more of a boost.

  • (1) Crystal Vial


Delicious Chocolate Cake
✩ Skill: 1 ✩ Usable ✩ Learned via Daily Quests
Notice how the chocolate cake has no chocolate? Obviously, the cake is a lie, but if you’re really wanting it, you’ll need to acquire it from a daily Cooking quest.

  • (4) Ice Cold Milk
  • (4) Mild Spices
  • (8) Small Egg
  • (1) Flask of Stormwind Tawny
  • (3) Mageroyal


Dusky Pigment
Used by Inscription.
Generally, these are used for crafting glyphs, but also scrolls and other such nonsense. I say that only because glyphs have degraded over the expansions.
