Introduction Mountain Silversage farming
In order to gather Mountain Silversage, farmers require a Herbalism skill of 280. It is one of the high-end herbs and generally grows on mountains and hills. This makes farming here quite lucrative when combined with Mining, since Thorium Ore, for example, also likes to spawn on or near hills.
