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.


  • Tracking of all gathering professions and more!
    • Herbs
    • Mines
    • Gas Clouds
    • Archaeology Digs
    • Fishing Pools
    • Treasures
  • Display of all collected data on the World Map and the MiniMap
  • Support for Routes
  • Import data via GatherMate2_Data
  • Share data in your guild with GatherMate_Sharing

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.


Unfortunately starting with Legion, both WoWHead and WoWDB do not seem to track the locations of herbs anymore, so an automated way to provide data is currently not possible.

However, anyone that wants to contribute can help, check this thread on how to provide your own node locations for everyone to use:

    can we have a new build, please?

    I've updated ruRU translations via localization UI and eagerly waiting for new build to have archaeology digs tracked.

    Thank you in advance!!

    @Anakid: Go

    Localization should be updated here on the website:

    It'll then automatically show up in the next release version. I've imported the translations you provided now, however.

    Greetings, I'm posting this cause i found some problem whenever i tried to add some Legion herb node to my Database. So i found the problem into the localization, to be more accurate into the translation of Herbalism herb into Italian. So i updated the most of IT file:

    This should work for Herbalism and Mining (Even the Ancient Mana should be tracked) in Legion. I'll end with the Update soon.

    PS: Whom find some problem like "Addons doesn't show the Herb on the minimap even if i gatherd it right now" for fix it just open the Locals wich matches with your client language and look for the English version of gathered items and just translate it.

    You're still missing the Legion Archeology stuff. I added it for myself but I'm sure plenty of people would appreciate to have it.

    Would be nice to get an update to GatherMate2_Data (last updated on Dec 13, 2015) especially when people are directed to install it along with GatherMate2! Heck, even a simple .toc update might give users hope for an actual data update! ;)

    @TheKreamCs: Go

    Most likely it is/was missing localization for your language. Check 1.36.3, it includes a list of new translations, otherwise check to fill in the information for your language!
