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:

    Thank you so much for the help! i can now mine in pandaria!!

    So... Does this mean that we have to periodically download a new/other version of gathermate2_data?

    If so, how and when is this determined?

    @neonfunk: Go

    It seems like gathermate2_data issue, try installing older version (18.1 worked for me). This also brings back nodes in Jade Forest

    Hi, I came across this site, and I was DESPERATELY hoping that anyone can help me,

    I regularly use gatghermate2 and gathermate2data on my computer AT HOME.

    I am currently away from home for a few weeks, and I cant seem to get these addons properly.

    I installed, performed import data base, and everything. The problem, is that: I CANNOT SEE ANY ORE DEPOSITS IN PANDARIA - the only thing I can see in pandaria are trillium deposits and "dark soil" (archaelogy thing?)

    To futher compound the mystery, When i see my world maps on ANY OTHER PLACE THAN PANDARIA, all the nodes show up fine!!!!

    So basically, my problem is, the addon works, but NOT in pandaria.

    I have of course tried to tinker with the options, and settings, and filters, but i do not get any ghost iron showing in pandaria. This is extremely frustrating as I was planning to do alot of farming this week.

    If anyone can PLEASE help me, Id be extremely greatful. Thanks!

    Hi again, so do you have any idea what we could do in order to fix this? Jade has always been our favorite gathering state, and we miss being able to mine there.

    Hi there! With regards to avamacbeth's problem, I have the same one as well. Every mining node showed up perfectly on the other parts of Pandaria except the Jade Forest. Tried tweaking the options and disabling other addons, couldn't find a solution at all.

    Hi, For some reason, my boyfriend's and my gathermate's are being a little screwwy. It's not showing us any mineral deposits in the jade forest.

    Adirelle not to bad assuming you mean a push into like the treasure database or something?

    Would it be difficult to add a new database type to gathermate2 with a third-party addon, e.g. rare spawns ?

    @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.
