To do so one must have the appropriate level of Herbalism and simply act as though they were gathering from any other herb node. Similar to skinning the player requires a herbalism skill of at least five times the target mob's level, but unlike skinning herbalists can not skill up this way.
Herb skinnable creatures Edit
Only some nature based giants and elementals (notably only elementals that resemble giant plants or trees) can currently be herb skinned. They first appeared in Zangarmarsh, Terrokar, Blade's Edge Mountains as well as a select few instances Outland instances.
Some of the harvesting creatures include:
- Bog Lords in Zangarmarsh.
- Underbog Lurkers and Shamblers.
- Rotting Forest-Rager in Terrokar.
- Raven's Wood Stonebark in Blade's Edge.
- Warp Splinter in Botanica.
As you can previously could only skin Outland mobs you could only obtain Outland (301+) level herbs from doing so including the valuable Fel Lotus. Herbs were not all you received however, alongside them you could get a variety of vendor trash items and even motes of life.
