Although this quest is generally listed as a Horde quest, it can be accepted and completed by Alliance herbalists.
Collect 8 Root Samples from herbs around North Barrens.
The herbs of the Barrens are not quite like herbs in other lands. Their properties are mostly the same, but the oasis water here alters the plants; they are just slightly different.
I want to study those differences... to see if they're exploitable!
If you are skilled in herbalism, then gather root samples off the herbs you find in the Barrens. Bring back these samples so that I may compare them with herbs from other regions.
Hello, <name>. Did you get those root samples?
Yes yes, these are very nice! I will grow specimens from these roots and study them. I hope to find new properties from them. Hidden, valuable properties...!
And don't worry – if I do then you'll be the first to know. Because I'll need someone to gather more!
You will need to have Herbalism in order to get this quest.
