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:

    I don't quite understand all things here at this site yet so I'll let you know I posted a ticket about this issue also. I am currently using GatherMate2- and GatherMate2_Date-r29 because when I use the newest release versions of these two they don't leave behind icons for Windy Clouds in Nagrand and Steam Clouds in Scholazar Basin. These are the only two zones I tried the newest versions on. Also, the icons it is leaving behind now in Nagrand are those of Steam Clouds instead of Windy Clouds not that it matters to me, location is most importand I just thought I'd let you know.

    wowhead doesnt have any digsite data to import hence why nothing shows on import of dig sites, you have to fnd them manually.

    What zone was the dig site following you in?

    Used Gathermate for a long time, til GM2 came, working just as it supposed to do. However I do noticed one bug, when I do Arch. and I "dig" the spot, the circle would appear, thats good, however when I fly away from the location, the mini-map that shows the circle would "follow" me to another location/change zone then it'll disappear.

    Just thought to let ya know... Vandiel of Thunderlord

    I know Archeology has been added to both this and to GM2_Data, but I never see nodes, shovels, or some other icon to indicate a spot. It is selected on my import settings, and I import Cataclysm from the drop down menu; something I am missing?

    I am a new gather2 user. I have a level 70 druid with herbalism I have set this up and went to Nagrand. While I can see the nodes, the addon thinks I have already gathered there and won't let me pick up the herbs. What am I doing wrong?

    Whatever you did in v. 1.0.7 fixed the issue for me. GM2 now stores harvested Obsidium nodes in Hyjal. Still no imports though, but I understand that is an issue with WoWHead.

    nothing was added by importing from gathermate2_data. TW client.

    Wujxin do you mean nodes you harvested aren't showing or that nothing was added by importing from gathermate2_data?
