Briarthorn is one of the herbs that used to be a pain to get, if I remember correctly. I always used to farm it in The Barrens, and anyone that knows how The Barrens trade chat can be, knows how distracting it is to get a single thing such as this herb. Plus they were spaced out.
But times change.
Now days, this herb is much easier to obtain, though I only take one route to obtain this herb. If I do gather the herb from any other place, it’s because I’m farming another herb, such as Mageroyal.
I jumped on my herbalist and timed different zones and different routes in order to get the most amount of herbs. Keep in mind that I am a HORDE DRUID, which allows me a faster time in grabbing herbs, due to never popping out of flight/aquatic form.
★ Each zone was timed for 10 minutes.

Unless there’s a lot of people farming this area, (which there might be), and unless you have the worst kind of luck with gathering, there’s a ton of Briarthorn and other herbs to be had in this zone.
