The table below shows the Inscription skill required to mill each known herb.
Note: Mageroyal is Millable at skill 1. However it produces the same pigments as herbs that require 25 skill to mill. Fire Seed is reported millable at skill 325, however all known sources for Fire Seed have disappeared ((with patch 3.0.8)).
The following items, which may be considered herbs, are shown as not Millable:
- Black Lotus
- Constrictor Grass
- Fel Blossom
- Fel Lotus
- Flame Cap
- Frost Lotus
- Golden Lotus
- Heart of the Wild
- Netherdust Pollen
- Nightmare Seed
- Unidentified Plant Parts
(Thanks Whillowhim for confirming Bloodvine cannot be milled.)

I was wondering if there was any information on the dropped herb, Heart of the Wild. Since it's not harvested directly like many other herbs, it would make sense to me either way: non-millable or millable. Just an issue of curiosity, and I love this site, so keep it up!

There's a posting on the beta professions forums where someone tried to categorize things which were not millable.
Fel Lotus 300
Black Lotus 300
Basically, the rare drop herbs, like wildvine, black lotus, etc are non millable (probably removing a dependency on acquiring them). I would assume Heart of the Wild might be in the same boat.

I wrote a list of what herbs are Millable. However, I haven't checked all the dropped herbs: Heart of Wild is one. I suspect it is no millable, but there are unexpected quirks.
I've been trying to check it most of the morning, but a few technical difficulties have so far prevented that... Updated: It's not millable.
Are there any other similar "herbs" that I've missed and should check?
Hriedmar, August 2008:
I haven't seen any others that you've missed, El: As I've said, you've done a great job so far. I can't wait to check back in on the site when Inscription comes in full force to the Beta, when it comes out to the live realms, and when the expansion is released.
Not that I don't visit every day already anyways.
Thanks for the quick response.

The guide here does not list bloodthistle as a herb that you can grind up for levelling 1 - 75 - does anyone know if it can be used as I have 3 stacks in my herb bag waiting...
el, October 2008:
Bloodthistle is not millable, so not used in Inscription. It was at the start of beta, but not now. Generally herbs that give a buff cannot be milled.

Just a note too. Wildvine is NOT millable, however Wintersbite is.
