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 dont know if their dataminer is grabbing fishing nodes. I know i send them the code to do track them but no idea if they added it in yet or not.

    Also word of advise I would suggest you do a overwrite import for herbs, minerals and treasure so any old data left in your database is cleaned up and you only have the new node data.

    looks good!. i'll try to do like i did before and collect massive amounto f fishing data, although maybe i'll install the wowhead dataminer instead so they get the data instead as most of my northrend and outlands fishing data is still missing on wowhead and only custom to gathermate database now heh.

    wow nevermind, their client is utter crap, not configurable, if you accidentally typo your login it just fails to authenicate non stop without any configuration to allow re-entry. the addon you're supposed to install in wow is out of date and not evenc ompatible with 4.x, it uses "this" and "arg1" functions. how does wowhead expect to get any data now? guess i'll be submitting my fishing data directly to you again. :\

    Well ill stop the data extract from running weekly till wowhead updates thier DB in the mean time i would suggests purging all the old zone in your db and start rebuilding data indexes.

    so what's going to happne to data now for changed 1-60 zones? i know gm2 itself supports phasing so is it just gonna ignore nodes from old old world that are in data? is gathermate2 data gonna have that data removed as we collect new data now for those zones? data size will be double if gathermate2_data still contains two versions of all that data on import, even if one is ignored. so i'm curious on whether the new 1-60 is included as "classic" data or "cataclysm" data, so i know what not to import :)

    ya please go double check the translations in the localization tab. I know for a fact German got a massive do-over on translations.

    To Add localizations: click the locaization tabs at the top, select the locale and add translations :)

    Hey kagaro,

    I use german client. If I can help with locales somehow, let me know ;)

    Edit: Just found out that recording works with Imperial Manta Ray schools, Glacial Salmon too

    it should be recording them. are you in a non english locale? I know blizz decided to change some translations for some locales recently. Thats the only thing I can think of right now as the node detection code didnt change at all in between GM1 and GM2.

    Hi guys,

    I use Gathermate for quite a while now and recently switched to Gathermate2. I noticed that it doesn't seem to record new spots, e. g. some Fangtooth Herring schools in Howling Fjord. Can you give me any hint on that?
