GatherMate2 is an addon to collect and track herbs, mines, fishing pools, gas clouds, archaelogy finds and treasures, and displays them on the world map and the mini map.

GatherMate will remember the location of every herb you pick or every ore you mine, so that you can easily find the positions of the herbs and mines again. Once you come into range of a recorded spot, GatherMate will show an icon representing the type of herb/ore/fish/etc. on your mini map, directly allowing you to decide if its worth checking out. Additionally, all spots are shown on the World Map, to ease navigation to certain types of nodes and making gathering more fun.

To give you a head start, GatherMate2 also offers a pre-filled data module, so you don't need to discover all herbs and mines yourself, but instead can just start gathering right away. Simply install GatherMate2_Data and hit a few buttons to import all the provided data, and you're good to go.

Video about configuring this addon.


Using GatherMate2 is straight-forward.
After the installation, GatherMate2 is automatically active and collecting data.

You can configure which data should be shown on the World Map or MiniMap in the Configuration Dialog, which can be accessed either via the /gathermate slash command or be found in the Interface options in the WoW Menu.

    I have the same problem with all other addon disabled. I tried embedded & disembedded.

    The strange thing is that it works only after I just launched WoW and log a char. If I reload the ui or log an other char it does not works until I quit wow. (on 1.0.6)

    Loaded the latest alpha - the non-existent minimap circles are gone - this time on my new Worgen. I've tried unloading the minimap button addon (Minimap Button Frame), tried logging out and back in, checked the database options, and all the 'show' options. The minimap info should be showing up, right?

    Any suggestions?

    So, am I doing something wrong or do I have an interaction with my minimap addon? In GatherMate, nodes that show up on the main map would show up as circles on the minimap - I don't see anything. Just read the FAQ (maybe still set for GatherMate not Mate2), which says that button bag addons for the minimap might cause this, but I've disabled my addon that does this, and still no sign. Also - there is an option to show nodes on the border of the minimap - which also doesn't seem to be working. GatherMate worked just fine for both of these.

    The above is happening in Mount Hyjal. In the rest of Kalimdor - I see the empty circles in the minimap.

    Interesting. Logged out of this character and back in - now I see the empty circles on the minimap. And 'nodes on the border'.

    Is that possible to add a function to just delete all data at one selected zone?
    Since Kalimdor/Eastern Kingdoms data make me a little bit mad, I want to just clear them. :/

    Its a formatting issue. GatherMAte was designed for rendering speed.

    data is stored in a binary format indexed by map id, its very slow to try and figure out what nodes are in a given zone. Gatherer use a differnet storage format and imho its bloated and uses a lot of memory. GatherMate has a different design goal. we dont store and string names of nodes. we dont store and historial data for a given node

    thanks for answer.

    Why don't you want to add this function ?

    It is very usefull and it is boring to all time go to google to search "where to farm xxxx" when you can just easly use your GatherMate to search "where did I found the more Iron" (- need a lot of time if you need to watch each map one after one + Easy and fast to use search function)

    What is the goal in having A gather addon, if you can "watch" each map one after one to find "what you found here" but if you can't use the addon to search "where to find xxx/Where will I find xxx"

    I don't understand you :/

    I just hope someone with a better english gonna ask you it or backup me :)

    no there isnt any search method, and never has been with gathermate1 or gathermate2.

    I dont plan on ever adding that funcationality

    Is there is a way to search something in GatherMate2 ? Like if i'm searching for "iron" can i do something like CTRL + F to search witch Region have got Iron ?

    Gatherer have an option to "search something" "sort by", it is what an addon like this need... It is an useless addon without this option when you need to search gold/iron or something else "only"

    I made a S/s for explain my low english :(

    I think it is a MUST HAVE, without this fonction, i can't use your addon, and I think a lot of people wont use it too.

    Search function.
