Sholazar is like a freaken garden of eden for herbs. My recently leveled to 80 druid spent a few levels in there, and i was in the basin for a total of about 8, maybe 10 hours. Doing nothing but herbing while questing, I gained stacks upon stacks upon stacks of herbs. Netted a whole slew of frost lotus as well as eternal life.I really want to take all those herbs and drop herbalism for inscription on my druid, as I don't have a Scribe amongst my alts. But I kind of hate the fact that the money-making aspect of it is so competitive as described. I figure I'll probably make some runescrolls, maybe roll the dice on darkmoon cards. Since I'm not an AH pvp'er, and I like making gold with a combination of gameplay and AH, it seems like I'd be just better off keeping herbalism. Oddly enough, the way i make my biggest profit from herbalism is with tailoring. Eternal life's can be pretty expensive on my server, and the side-benefit of herbing are crystallized life. With just normal plucking of herbs doing dailies and wintergrasp, I seem to end up with a bunch of eternals (which go for 20-30g on my server), which I in turn send to my tailor to use for Brilliant Spellthread. I generally make a minimum of 100% profit on brilliant spellthread (above what the raw mats would sell for), and have made as much as 300% profit before. No one seems to sell these things, but people need them. I much prefer the lower competition and higher reward areas.Still, I always feel like it would be nice to have a Scribe in my cadre of alts, and it's kinda disappointing that the money-making off of Inscription is so tough.
