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.

    Um, while I understand that, I don't understand what that means in terms of the cause and solution. Is this a Blizzard oversight, or something that can be accounted for in GM2?

    I was fishing in the new Troll island, got Reef Octopus swarm. Now the little circle follows me around on the mini map, as if pinned to my character arrow.

    The world frame map seems fine, however.

    Not auto e-mail for ticket ? that's a bit crappy. Thanks for fixing this half-bug, I actually don't have anymore when I don't load the _data addon, that's quite strange.
    What about the second part of my comment (the moving tracking circles)?

    wowace doesnt always send mail when tickets are entered. Your issue is fixed in the alpha build

    Is there anybody looking at the tickets? It's been a month since I submitted one, and no answer yet...
    Apart from my ticket, I wanted to signal another thing: the tracking circles move when you move, then get back to their place, when you are in an instance (Darkmoon wreckage around Darkmoon island, for example). I didn't see anybody complaining about it, am I the only one affected ?

    @Hellreiser: Go

    You are doing nothing wrong. The issue is because not enough people are using both WoWHead's Client and/or Curse's solution to upload data. Further, not enough people are doing Archaeology in the first place. The Curse solution only works in Windows because it requires the v5 Client.

    1. WoWHead Client (installs +WoWHead_Looter addon automatically)
    2. Curse Client and WoWDB_Profiler (Tools menu, Options, Plugins, turn on upload data, also install addon yourself because I don't think it is automatic)

    @Bluekupo: Go

    I'm also having the same issue as Bluekupo here. I've done all the same things that they have done but no joy on MoP archaeology pins/nodes.

    Sorry in advance if I've missed this in a FAQ, I've googled for an hour or two and I've come up short...


    No archaeology nodes/pins in MoP zones.

    what I've tired so far

    I've installed,reinstalled, and re-reinstalled (via curse client) gathermate2 and gathermate2 data. I've double checked the install directory (avoiding folder in folder problem) Fired up wow, /gathermate - import - import button (ticked archaeology) and tried a few combinations of tick boxes and merge/overwrite. Message received "GatherMate2Data has been imported."


    I now have the complete collection of all the CATA/WOTLK archaeology pins/nodes on my maps... Yet not one single node/pin/dig/whatever has appeared on my map for the MoP zones. When I dig "old school" the digsite that I find on my own is generated on the map/added to data. I've been fussing around with options for a while now and begging for help is my last resort.


    Archaeology data for MoP zones no worky.

    Thanks in advance- Blue

    Didn't track Mines in Pandaria and Archaeology Digs at all. Why?
