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.

    @Visot: Go

    No AddOn can determine if a node is active. Blizzard has never allowed that to happen. The only way to tell if you can mine, herb, fish, etc a node is to physically go to it.

    GatherMate2 is 100% accurate about where a node is; it just can't tell you if the node is actually available.

    why is gathermate2 inaccurate? saying it's accurate one forth of the time is very generous. is no one else getting the same issue? i go to 4 or 6 veins of tin and nothing is there. is this not inaccurate or other players beating me to the punch? i don't get it. could someone please tell me or clue me in :((((((((((

    I am thinking of migrating to this addon from Gatherer (because of more clean and friendly settingsUI) and I want to ask some question. Is there any way to impot my existing Gatherer DB in Gathermate2?
    If there is no way to do this ATM, then this post may be considered as feature request.

    Hi - I have had a recent problem arise. My character - a herbalist - now has a bunch of green circles superimposed over the character on the minimap; one for each herb I have in my bag, ( I do not need to look closely at my minimap to see where I am, a bunch of green circles give me away :-) ). I can switch them off by turning off herb search, and by unloading Gathermate2, but they reappear when those action are turned back on. I have the latest update installed (1.25.4). I am presently in the Gilnean starting zone.

    Any advice please

    Edit: Lol - just realised this issue has been raise a few comments below - sorry for doubling up.

    Um, while I understand that, I don't understand what that means in terms of the cause and solution. Is this a Blizzard oversight, or something that can be accounted for in GM2?

    I was fishing in the new Troll island, got Reef Octopus swarm. Now the little circle follows me around on the mini map, as if pinned to my character arrow.

    The world frame map seems fine, however.

    Not auto e-mail for ticket ? that's a bit crappy. Thanks for fixing this half-bug, I actually don't have anymore when I don't load the _data addon, that's quite strange.
    What about the second part of my comment (the moving tracking circles)?
