Ancient Lichen Farming - WoW Gold Guide

When making gold with herbalism, one should choose a herb that has limited availability, so there's more gold to be made when selling it. Sure, common herbs sell a lot faster, but overall there's more gold to be made if you focus on multiple herbs and not only Cataclysm herbs! TBC herbs are excellent examples.

Ancient Lichen can be found inside instances and gathered from plant creatures with herbalism, such as bog giants around Zangarmarsh or trees in Skettis.

How to make a lot of gold!
There's a few choices on where to farm Ancient Lichen. The best of all in my opinion is Underbog, because you can combine it with a killer gold making method that focuses on the Sanguine Hibiscus you're getting from the instance. Nevertheless, all of the instances are profitable to farm (on heroic mode mainly) if you clear them fully, so choose whichever suits you the best!
