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.

    Need and update for Gathermate2 and LibMapData to add MoP stuff. I got it working with the API changes ! I just can't figure out how to add the ore/herbs/new maps to the code. Would be more than happy to fix the rest with some directions or to just do the testing for you !!

    English EU client, yes. I posted the same comment/question on the Curse-page and an user was of the opinion that the data is missing from GatherMate2_Data.

    A snippet from h4msters reply: "UPDATE: just confirmed that the icon and name will show on the main map and minimap by finding a Cobalt node in Dragonblight and editing the gathermate2.lua file to report it as a Maplewood Trasure Chest (540) - instead of a cobalt node it is now a Chest - so it works but as i have found out THE GATHERMATE2_DATA does NOT CONTAIN the necessary entries to import Maplewood Treasure Chest ( 540 ) ."

    I also tried a competing addon with Wowhead data import available, and it did not display these chests either. Could it be that there's something awry with the data source?

    are you using the english client? I can only guess that maybe a locale is missing data OR if blizz slightly changed the name and/or spelled wrong that would be why it isnt found.

    This is driving me up the wall. I cannot for the life of me get Maplewood and Dark Iron treasure chests to show up. I found a ticket from March 2011 with the same problem, and that ticket was resolved in June 2011 (

    I'm assuming it's PEBCAK, but I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've reinstalled GatherMate2 and the newly updated GatherMate2_data, flattened the database, imported over and over but they're not showing up.

    Edit: Just to be explicit, I have checked the Wowhead data on treasure chests and compared to what GatherMate2 is showing after importing (and flattening/reimporting/cleaning up), there are quite a few nodes missing.

    Blackbelly Mudfish, Deepsea Sagefish, Fathom Eel, Highland Guppy, Mountain Trout, Raw Greater Sagefish, Raw Sagefish. Those fishes' icon didn't update. I make the .tga files for them.

    Add the ability to change the color when an items exists. For example I see the red circle for mining and when there is an item to mine the yellow is real hard to see in snow. I would like to change it to another color when I am in winterspring.

    The Algaefin Rockfish School got replaced by Deepsea Sagefish School in 4.3 and GM wasn't updated with that change, but i think the ticket 57 will do, please comment the tickets.

    Hey Guys, I don't what to make of this but I fished the entire southeastern coast of Twilight Highlands today and GM didn't leave behind a single icon for the Deepsea Sagefish pools and also I was collecting motes of water from swamp gas in Zangarmarsh and again not one icon for the swamp gas clouds.
