Herbalism Kit. This kit contains a variety of instruments such as clippers, mortar and pestle, and pouches and vials used by herbalists to create remedies and potions. Proficiency with this kit lets you add your proficiency bonus to any ability checks you make to identify or apply herbs. Also, proficiency with this kit is required to create antitoxin and potions of healing.
That is the description of the herbalism kit but it isn’t very clarifying. I tried to search more information about this but all the websites I found don’t follow the rules of any book, they make up their own ones (for example this answer, this answer, this especulation, this blog). Our DM said we can choose 2 tools from any book so it is no problem if it isn’t from the PHB, it can be from another one.
It’ll be my first time playing so I don’t want to get hurt (that is why I am looking for items to heal me [our cleric doesn’t want to be healer]), but I don’t want to ask to the DM how it works because I’ve already asked him several questions and I don’t want to bother him.
I am looking for:
- This kit contains a variety of instruments such as clippers, mortar and pestle, and pouches and vials That means it has a limit usages?
- used by herbalists to create remedies [,] antitoxin and potions of healing How can I craft healing herbs, remedies or healing potions? (Anything that restores HP)
- How can I gather the resources to craft?
- Proficiency with this kit lets you add your proficiency bonus to any ability checks you make to identify or apply herbs. How can I identify or apply herbs? If I identify an herb, can I gather it? How much time it takes that?
If there isn’t any official rule, I am open to accepted rules made by community.
