About Herbalists

Herbalists can supply an abundant quantity of reagents for themselves, which aids during the crafting process, or they can choose to sell the herbs for profit.

Herbalists can locate herbs on their map with the help of their keen sense of the placement and growth of flora. Similarly, they can also harvest easily by right-clicking the located herb.
