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:

    V 2-1.16.2-2-g2051784 To get it to work on beta you add the new LibMapData from wowinterface. After doing so it works flawlessly (So far) Also works perfectly with Routes. Puts the MoP nodes on both mini and reg maps after finding and mining/herbing/fishing them. Saves to the database on new nodes. Using the placeholder icons but I don't see that as a problem for now. Have not found any chests to test yet at all. Haven't done any dungeons or instances to test yet.

    Are there any plans to add pool tracking for the Darkmoon Faire?

    I've edited the addon to remove the Blood of Heros that was removed in Cata, and resused those checkpoints to make the raptor nests. But I can't automatically update them, and I can't manage to create new data points to diffrenntiate between the nests.

    Not sure if anyone could use that data for anything or not, given it took me 3 weeks to figure out the remapping I did.

    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?
