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:

    MAke sure you got the latest build of both gm1 and gm2 and enable gm1 so you can do the import. I did a fishing node import this morning.

    GatherMAte sharing should work with both original GatherMate and GatherMate2.

    Ive updated GatherMate_Sharing this morning to fix an issue when you had GatherMate2 installed.

    Just a question on this, I know previously with the old Gathermate (1) you needed Gathermate_Sharing to sync and share with guild members, will this be built-in as an option for 2 or will Gathermate_Sharing be updated to work w/ 2?

    It is "Kupferader" not "Kupfererz"

    I think all german ores have changed to this style: "Anyore"ader

    Zinnader, Goldader...

    But i dont know exactly if its so

    Evialor: ok didnt know your using the german client. Can you please go check the German translation for Copper Vein. I copied it from Gathermate 1, however that doesnt mean blizzard didnt change the translation. if a given node name isnt found via name lookup it isnt recorded.

    For example whenever new nodes are added, Gathermate has to be updated to include those new names, since there is no way in game to determine without error the name of the node your harvesting so we have the localized names as part of the localization for gathermate. If those translations are wrong then if wont find the name of the node and not record it.

    i dont get it ...

    Maybe it is because i am using a german beta client? Herbing works like a charme, but with Kupferader / Copper Vein i have my problems.

    Have checked the Filters and they are all checked

    That's excellent news.

    If you want me to try out anything, just drop me a PM and I'll try importing from my live db.
