I think that we all know how useful the skill herbs can be in an RPG like Risen 2 and we also know that they’re pretty difficult to find too. Therefore, I have decided to share with you this (incomplete for now) list of herb locations in Risen 2. The good thing is that if you go with VooDoo (level 4 required) you can learn brewing and double the effects of the skill herbs!

Now let’s check out below the locations list for the skill herbs in Risen 2: Dark Waters and at the end of the article we’ll learn a bit more about the brewing recipes as well!
