Welcome to our Nightshade farming guide. Here are the best places to gather nightshade in shadowlands (9.0.2) All of the routes below will be routes import enabled
Where can I farm nightshade in Shadowlands
Nightshade is normally found in the maw zone of shadowlands. It does spawn in all other zones of shadowlands, Bastion, Ardenweald, Revendreth and Maldraxxus. However when farming in other zones you only have below 5% chance for the herb node to spawn as nightshade herb.
Nightshade is the most sort after herb in the new shadowlands expansion, making gathering it a little tricky. I will go over everything you need to know in the post.
Where Can I Farm Herbs in Shadowlands
Unlocking The Maw
In order to gather Nightshade in the maw you must first unlock the maw, if you have not done so already, here’s how to do it.
you’ll need to have a level 60 Character, once you have hit max level and chosen your covenant. You must complete a questline below depending on your covenant. This questline will take you to The Maw where you can begin your gathering.
Covenant campaign quests
- Kyrian Campaign – Among the Kyrian – Full Quest list
- Night Fae Campaign – For Queen and Grove! – Full Quest list
- Necrolord Campaign – Loyal to the Primus – Full Quest list
- Venthyr Campaign – Sinfall – Full Quest list
Mounting in the maw
You can not mount in the maw, however there are alternatives to help.
Druids have Travel Form that can be activated in The Maw and used as normal you can also gather while in travel
Worgens Have a Racial which allows them to go on all fours, this can also be activated in the maw Running Wild
- Mawsworn Outrider, you can ride the Bridled Shadehound This mount you can find while just running around the maw. You will find it mostly patrolling the pathways. The downside to this mount is it only lasts for 60 seconds and once you dismount it for any reason it will vanish. If someone nearby is killing Mawsworn rider then you will also be able to ride it.
- Corridor Creeper – Reward from Twisting Corridors: Layer 8. This is in torghast and can be very brutal.
- Mawsworn Soulhunter – drops from Gorged Shadehound. it only has a 2% drop chance. Here is a detailed video how to get this mount
Shadowlands Gathering perks
Herbalism farming perks you should be utilising to increase your nightshade gathering potential.
Enchanting your gloves with Shadowlands gathering is a must in my eyes especially if your going to be doing quiet a lot of gathering. It will help massively with nightshade farming because everything in the maw really wants to hurt you and if you don’t the enchant you will not be able to gather herbs between mobs auto attacks
Herbalist’s Spade The second perk is something for players without max level herbalism, its a one time purchase and it just sits in your bags. Its increases your herbalism skill by 10 points, because the amount of herbs you gather is based on your skill level i recommend purchasing it.
Best gathering mount for farming herbs
SKYGOLEM mount if your not a druid with travel or worgen with running wild racial form then I recommend buying the sky golem for herb farming, although it cant be used in the maw you can use it in all other zones.
How to stop being dazed while farming
If the class you play as a tank spec then you should be activating tank spec. Don’t worry if your have never played it. The only reason to enter tank spec while farming is to remove the daze mobs give you when mounted. Keeping you moving at max speed.

Nightshade Farming route import #wow #wowfarmingTweet
Nightshade Farming in The Maw Route 1 Import
The first Farming route below is the friendlier one of nightshade farming, it avoids most of the nasty mobs and the elites. It’s still pretty hostile considering most of the farmers there can not mount up.
The Maw Nightshade route import
This route is the bigger one for nightshade but its a lot more hostile. I only recommend this if you have the glove enchant shadowlands gathering and a mount to escape the mobs, druid form will also work really well for this.
Nightshade farming in Maldraxxus
Maldraxxus is another alright place to farm nightshade, however you will find more Death Blossom and Marrowroot than you will find nightshade. Bare this in mind that the spawn chance for nightshade is below 5% and for Deathblossom its around 40%
Nightshade route import for Maldraxxus
A bigger route for Maldraxxus if your not having much luck with the route above
Nightshade farming in Bastion
Bastion is overall the most pleasant place for nightshade farming in general. Again Rising glory is native to Bastion so you will be looting a lot more rising glory and death blossom that you will be looting nightshade. if you like the you can check out more Rising Glory Farming.
Nightshade farming in Ardenweald
Nightshade sharing a spawn location with all other herbs in shadowlands brings me to Ardenweald. A bit like Bastion its pleasant to farm here. While farming here you will gather more Vigil’s Torch and death blossom than you will nightshade so please bare that in mind.
Revendreth nightshade route import
Nightshade gathering in Revendreth isnt recommend as its pretty hostile here and to many bridges and cliffs that just slow you down. However the reason I’m sharing it as nightshade route is because once flying as been released Revendreth could be a solid farming location. Widowbloom is native to Revendreth so you will gather more widowbloom and death blossom than nightshade. I have giving the less hostile route here. You click here to see more Widowbloom farming routes
