The Sims Medieval Herbs
In medieval times, herbs were used for many things ranging from medicine to potions to even poisons. It is fitting then that “The Sims 3 Medieval" uses the herbs that are gathered in the game by the specific heroes that can make such useful items.
Only the Wizard, Physician and the Spy heroes are able to collect all of The Sims Medieval herbs that can be found in the Kingdom. All of the heroes are able to gather wildflowers, but they are unable to “Discover" or “Collect" the other herbs used for the items that can be crafted by the other professions.

How to Gather Herbs in The Sims Medieval
When you first start your new game, all of the flowers or herbs will show up as just green bushes. Your heroes don’t need anything special to gather herbs or flowers. To find out what it is, you will need to have your hero “Discover" the flower or herb. It is best to do this with The Sims Medieval Wizard, Physician or Spy because they can discover the all of the herbs that are available in the Kingdom.
Once your hero has discovered the flower or herb, it is shown to all of your heroes in that game. Only the heroes that are able to “Collect" the herb or flower are able to do so, but it won’t show up as a green bush if it has been discovered already.
When your hero collects the herb, they will earn experience points and the flower or herb that they are collecting (it goes into the hero’s inventory). The hero can then use it for their crafting or to sell at a shop.
Tip: Make sure that your Focus level is high when discovering and collecting. The higher your focus is, the better the chance of collecting more herbs and not botching the attempt.

The Types of Herbs Available
When searching around the Kingdom with your The Sims Medieval heroes and discovering new types of herbs, you will come across quite a few. The list below gives all of the types of herbs and flowers you can collect in the game and also the base value that they are worth.
Angelweed – can’t sell this type of The Sims Medieval herbs
Belladonna – worth 12 Simoles
Blood Moss – worth 4 Simoles
Eaglewood – worth 14 Simoles
Grassweed – worth 6 Simoles
Lordleaf – worth 14 Simoles
Nightshade – worth 16 Simoles
