Pity. I can describe a more efficient method for most rare herbs and minerals, but you'd need a list of map locations to send them (or else a determined person with quite a bit of time on their hands).

I made a script that redefined the cursor keys to move the map location by twice the current zoom level so I got a completely new map each time. Due to my slow internet it still took 3 days to cover the entire world (I did have some time for sleep). That got me the locations but as you implied it would still need a visit to find out what particular herb/mineral was at that location and I never got round to that.

Generate the links so that they are capable of the usual dispatch commands. From a large miner or herbalist city, send 1 unit to each position. After all of them are launched, prestige bump thrice. That will get you the contents of each unguarded location, sent to your notifications. I believe you can parse that as specific rare resources, straight from the API.

Guarded locations, you would have to scout.

Realistically, very few rare herbs and minerals are truly useful. Almost all of the useful ones are available somewhere on the map, with a few exceptions.
