Bubble Poppy is one of the uncommon (green) Dragonflight herbs. It typically spawns in the vicinity of water. It can be found in all Dragonflight zones (so far), but the best zone for it is Ohn’ahran Plains.
- Dragonflight Herbalism
- At least 5 Vigor in Dragonflight
- The GatherMate2 addon (optional)
Where to go:
It’s a good idea to start your herb gathering session either at Rusza’Thar Reach (85, 37) or at Forkriver Crossing (71, 79). These places are pretty high above ground level, so you’ll have better Vigor management at least for half the route (until you reach the Shady Sanctuary).
What to do:
Follow the route above (basically, follow the river), and gather all the Bubble Poppy that you can find. For this particular session, I skipped most other herbs, including Saxifrage and buffed Hochenblume. I’ve only picked Bubble Poppy and Writhebark.
The areas with the highest number of possible Bubble Poppy spawn points are:
- The Shady Sanctuary, at around (30, 53);
- The river portion east of Nokhundon Hold, at around (42, 41);
- The river segment between Maruukai and Cloverwood Hollow, at around (59, 46);
Although the route covers the northern border of the zone as there are a few poppy nodes at the waterfalls there, you can also follow the river back east, passing between Maruukai and Cloverwood Hollow. You’ll often find Writhebark in this area too.
I’ve found several Rich Soil locations in the area, although some of them aren’t en-route. Here are their coordinates:
- (61.8, 58.4)
- (61.3, 51.3)
- (62.3, 50.3)
- (30.7, 51.3)
- (30.5, 53.0)
- (24.4, 62.8)
After about one hour of gathering herbs on this route in Ohn’ahran Plains, I got the following valuables:
- Bubble Poppy x 116
- Writhebark x 38
- Hochenblume x 65
- Lava Beetle x 15
- Rousing Ire x 5
- Rousing Frost x 17
- Rousing Air x 8
- Rousing Earth x 2
- Rousing Order x 1
I went with Bountiful Harvests and Arboriculture on my Herbalism spec, and for this session, I had 0 points in Fungiculture (so, no extra Bubble Poppy from the skill tree). I’ve also used a Steaming Phial of Finesse, for extra herbs gathered.
On a few different sessions, I also gathered the buffed Hochenblume (i.e Titan-Touched, Lush, Infurious, etc. while skipping the plain nodes) and the Saxifrage nodes. However, this way, I’ve only managed to get approx. 50 Bubble Poppy in an hour. But on the other hand, I got over 250 Hochenblume, more Rousing elements, and Lava Beetles.
If you have Alchemy, you can craft and use Steaming Phials of Finesse or Crystalline Phials of Perception. Finesse can grant extra herbs from nodes, while Perception gives extra chances to get Rousing Air, Rousing Frost, Lava Beetles, etc. The Finesse and Perception phials are BoP. So, if you don’t have Alchemy, you can buy them via crafting orders.
If you have the Buried Treasures trait (unlocked at 5 Renown with Dragonscale Expedition), it’s a good idea to have a few Sturdy Expedition Shovels with you. Sometimes you’ll find Disturbed Dirt near herb nodes. You can dig them up for extra stuff. Also, at 27 renown level with the Iskaara Tuskarr, you can collect Tuskarr Tackleboxes found on the riverbanks all over Ohn’Ahran Plains.
If you’re using the GatherMate2 addon, it’s best to disable all the Hochenblume nodes from showing up. Hochenblume will still show up on your radar, but you won’t see their saved locations. At some point, you’ll have so many saved Hochenblume locations that you may not see properly on the radar what other herbs are up at a certain location.
