About Gatherer

Gatherer is an addon for herbalists, miners and treasure hunters in World of Warcraft. It's main purpose is to track the closest plants, deposits and treasure locations on your minimap.

The addon does not track like a tracking ability does, rather it "remembers" where you have found various items in the past. It does this whenever you gather (perform herbalism, mining or opening) on an item, and records the specific map location in its history. From then on, whenever the item comes into range of being one of the closest 1-25 (configurable) items to your present location, it will pop up on you minimap.

When you view your World Map, you will also see the item locations marked on the particular map you are viewing there.

For more information, please visit us at http://www.gathereraddon.com/
Gatherer DB WoWHead - A database of node locations provided by http://www.wowhead.com/

INSTALLATION

Extract the data to your "World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns" directory so that the "Gatherer" directory is a subdirectory of the "AddOns" directory.

USAGE

Just use the game as normal.
When you gather things, they will appear on your minimap and your main map.
If you want to configure the addon, click the Gatherer configuration icon floating around your minimap frame or type /gather options.

    Hey, I'm trying to find a version of this that is compatible with vanilla wow... If anyone can help, please pm me! A link would be ideal! Thanks!!

  • #4011

    There are 4 .lua files to edit to have Gatherer recognize Withered Herb "nodes": GatherCategories, GatherConstants, GatherIcons, and GatherNodes. Basically, wherever you see TaladorOrchid, add WitheredHerb the same way, the ID number is 243334. The only one that's different is GatherConstants where the number is the skill level required, I just used the same as the other Draenor herbs (610). Be aware there may be more than one place in each file where WitheredHerb (and variations thereon) needs to be added.

    Haven't come across any other "new" herbs in Tanaan that are gatherable via herbalism, if there are they can probably be added in a similar fashion once you know the ID number (WoWHead is good for that).

  • #4009

    does not work with the new 6.2 patch as it cannot recognize the new herbs in Tanaan :-S

  • #4008

    Is this addon getting an update?  Is there another addon that works as good as this one?

  • #4010

    Try to use Gather Mate2.

    It works just fine and get's regular updates.

    Only nodes missing in the database till now(at least as far as I know) are from Tanaan Jungle, but it saves the nodes you collect while picking up herbs/mining/etc.

  • #4007

    The sending of data of the nodes seem broken as well

  • #4005

    Draenor doesn't save any data. Why? :/

  • #4006

    I just translated Draenor's itens to my language (pt-br)

    ["Depósito de Ferro Verdadeiro"] = 228493, -- True Iron Deposit
    ["Depósito Rico de Ferro Verdadeiro"] = 228510, -- Rich True Iron Deposit
    ["Depósito de Rocha Negra"] = 228563, -- Blackrock Deposit
    ["Depósito Rico de Rocha Negra"] = 228564, -- Rich Blackrock Deposit
    ["Erválgida"] = 228571, -- Frostweed
    ["Ervígnea"] = 228572, -- Fireweed
    ["Papa-mosca de Gorgrond"] = 228573, -- Gorgrond Flytrap
    ["Florestrela"] = 228574, -- Starflower
    ["Ponta-de-seta de Nagrand"] = 228575, -- Nagrand Arrowbloom
    ["Orquídea de Talador"] = 228576, -- Talador Orchid
    ["Achado de Arqueologia dos Clães de Draenor"] = 226521, -- Draenor Clans Archaeology Find
    ["Achado de Arqueologia Arakkoa"] = 234105, -- Arakkoa Archaeology Find
    ["Achado de Arqueologia Ôgrica"] = 234106, -- Ogre Archaeology Find

    It's all working now! :D

  • #4003

    I have always loved this addon. However, with Draenor and the addition of lumber, I feel tree nodes should be saved as well to gatherer.

    5/5

    Totally agree on this one, both with regards to the lumber as well as the "loving it", this is a must-have-installed for any addon using player ^.^

    Actually logged here today hoping to find lumber as a part of a new WoD version, but not so far I guess :'(

  • #4002

    Any word on when this will be updated?

  • #4001

    I love this addon and have used it for a few years.

    I am having trouble sharing or recieving nodes from someone or to someone else.

    1- put in correct name and so on, 2- made sure we both kept the window open on both sides

    (which is what you had to do in the first place, or it cancelled it out)

    ...... but i get nothing! - and they...

    we made sure that it was updated, reinstalled it -- nothing worked.

    Outside of that this is a great addon.. please help me fix sharing.. it makes no sense since it should share like how it did before wod..

    thanks.
