About time herbalists get some love! We've needed this for a long time now.
The previous specialty herbalism bag,
Satchel of Cenarius
, was both smaller than the other profession specialty bags (
for Enchanting and
Reinforced Mining Bag
for Mining for example) and required an old world rep (Cenarion Circle) that is no longer widely available for the pattern. The addition of this pattern will make large Herbalism specific bags much easier to obtain, though the mats are still somewhat expensive.
An excellent addition which begs the question of whether some of the other professions that do not have 28-slot specialty bags (Jewelcrafting and Skinning for example) will have them patched in as well.
New Herb Bag added in 2.4.3
Recipe requires Revered with Sporeggar.
These don't seem Unique-Euipped... goody goody!
I hate blizzard sometimes. The mining 28 slot bag takes some common leather and primal earth, while this takes Primal Mooncloth and Fel Lotus?!?!?!?!?
I mean, it's great that they added this after a year, but couldn't they make it a little more even? >.>
The 24 slot Satchel Of Cenaris will still hold a place on most realms as it will still still for 80g to 130g which will still be about half the price of the 28 slot Mycah's Botanical Bag.
Great to see this bag become available though.
"Herb bags can now hold Un'goro Soil and Evergreen Pouches." as of Patch 2.4.3
Even if you aren't short on space, herb bags have the advantage of helping keep your inventory organized, as picked herbs automatically go in the herb bag.
Based on the cost of materials, the average price of Mycah's bag should be 160g. Sporegaar rep is easy enough that it shouldn't command a large premium.
Total base mats needed for this bag:
8 Arcane Dust
40 Mote of Life (4 Primal Life)
40 Mote of Water (4 Primal Water)
2 Fel Lotus
Leveraging Mooncloth specialication the required materials look like this:
36 Netherweave Cloth
4 Arcane Dust
20 Mote of Life (2 Primal Life)
20 Mote of Water (2 Primal Water)
2 Fel Lotus
On a side note, if one wants to get this bag as soon as the patch hits live, you can get your Mooncloth tailors now to create the Primal Mooncloth so you won't have to wait for cooldowns.
Given the amount of time that 28 slot bags will last, this is VERY worth the money for it. 9/10 it's going to be cheaper to buy the mats than it is to buy the bag. (Spent 240g on the mats, bags are selling for 400g+)
For those of you that didn't get the mats before the patch, when they were most likely lower; I'd say wait a week or so for the prices to level out.
(On my server)
PMC Day before the patch: 40g - Day of: 75g
The Fel Lotus didn't change prices.
Umm, Cost of components 14g and 40s? Where the hell can you get those mats for that cheap? Can't even get one of the items for that much...
