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.


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:

    Morning, It's been a while since I've extracted motes of air from Nagrand. Mid July I believe. And when I did I guess I posted the problem at the wrong half of the GatherMate program. Anyway, when extracting the motes of air GM2 had been leaving behind the windy cloud icons at the place of extraction, when all of sudden on that day in mid July it began to leave behind steam cloud icons. Now, it's not a big deal but my map is covered with the windy cloud icons and it is now making a very uneven look, just thought to let you know, and also that it isn't leaving any icons behind now in Zangarmarsh. (water vapor) Thanks for your time.

    GatherMate2 and LibMapData-1.0 share a Manager, Author!

    This addon is almost useless because of the massive amount of spam produced by LibMapData-1.0 when in any of the new zones introduced with 4.2.

    Was wondering about the possibility to add a HUD so that nodes can show up on the entire screen instead of just the mini map. I used an addon that to my understanding was built upon Gathermate2 called Archaeology Helper (or such) that had this feature. I really liked that when I was doing nothing but farming, would be nice to have that feature for other than just Archaeology.

    Was Wondering If/When Gathermate2 /Gathermate2_Data Will have Archy data dumps? Or Can thata be some place where plp can upload data for archy data so it can be put together for better info for all ????

    My Best Regards Hevreka

    Feature Request: Announce Nodes

    When a node pops up rather than dragging your mouse over to see what it is, this option would send the name of node to a window or maybe announce it with fading text in the center of your screen.
