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 have been fishing in Darkshore and the pool of "Floating Debris" isn't being recorded by the addon.

    edit: Changed the line:

    [NL["Floating Debris Pool"]] = 103, -- debris.tga


    [NL["Floating Debris"]] = 103, -- debris.tga

    in the file Constants.lua and now it works fine.

    Just wanted to add, this is still happening for me regularly, even with ElvUI disabled. Is it something to do with the zoom level? Maybe Gathermate is thinking the minimap is zoomed in more than it actually is?

    I also use ElvUI and have experienced this bug with the minimap rings "moving". I have generally found that it happens if I log in while mounted. If I dismount, log out and back in, it is usually fixed.

    @darkpowrjd: Go

    try just going into the game with gathermate enabled only and see if you still see the issue. I cant replicate this behaviour. I even installed elvui this morning on beta to see if that was doing something, btu alas thats not the culprit. Also are you on windows or mac? it might be some directx issue (it was suggested not sure)

    When in doubt disable everything except gathermate and see if it still happens. I doubt it will as the only reason to see floating icons is either a.) bad zone data or b.) some addon is changing the map. I doubt a as it's a direct extract from the games files and re-validated in game. It's very likely b, that some addon is changing your map. There have been a few reports in irc about something changing maps randomly

    Okay, I'm not sure if this is something just with the ElvUI minimap or something with this addon or what, or if this has been brought up by anyone else, but this is driving me up the wall.

    It's hard to explain what is exactly going on in words, but I don't have any other option right now, so please bear with me as I try to describe this.

    Whenever I fly around a zone to farm using the pulled data (or any data), the circles on the minimap seem to "move" as if the nodes were rapid moving objects rather than being still (and they are all running away from me, apparently). This is making it VERY hard for me to know where that node would even be, much less if that node was actually available or not.

    This has happened before, and for the most part, it fixes itself the next time I log onto the game (not sure how, but it does), and it rarely appears. It made me think that all I needed was to reload UI. However, with the recent update, nothing seems to work, and it's been doing this ever since. I don't know what to do to get it to stop doing this, or what is even causing it (making me unable to know who to talk to to get it fixed).

    Please let me know if it didn't make sense of what I'm talking about.

    you get wowhead to remove thos bad nodes and it will dissapear form the data set. there is something new coming to wowdb for map info on nodes. once that comes in i may switch to that instead of wowhead, well see
