Hey fellow WoW players! Welcome to my blog and this article about Aethril farming. There is no need to ever buy it on AH if you follow my guide. Quite the contrary, you can even farm it to sell on Auction House and earn lots of gold this way.


If you have hard time earning gold in WoW I recommend using this in-game add-on, called Zygor Guides. It really helps you with lots of aspects in the game, including Farming, Crafting, Gathering, Auction, Leveling, Professions and much more... Though, the add-on costs some money, but is well worth the price. They also have a FREE TRIAL you may want to try.




Now back to the point.

Aethril is an herb introduced in Legion expansion. All the Legion herbs have now three ranks. For each rank you must complete a short questline. It starts from picking up the herb for the first time.

  • Rank 1: Gives you the ability to gather it more efficiently.
  • Rank 2: While gathering you may loot some rare materials.
  • Rank 3: While gathering in the Broken Isles extra herbs may appear.

Before you go start farming you may check this list of items and enchants to speed up you farming process:

Enchant Gloves - Legion Herbalism is much recommended enchant as it drops down gathering time from 1.5s to 0.5s. Makes quite a difference! 🙂

Also go get Boon of the Harvester but you must be honored with Dreamweavers. This enchant gives you a chance to loot Harvested Goods containing extra herbs.
