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.

Slash Commands

/gather minimap (on|off|toggle) - controls the minimap tracking functionality
/gather mainmap (on|off|toggle) - controls the world map tracking functionality
/gather dist <n> - sets the minimap tracking distance to this number of units. (in game yards)

    I keep loosing all of my database more often. How can I make a backup of my own database and import it again. I don't want to bother my friends every time to send me their database again. I use gatherer since a couple of years now but it happens more often than before that i loose all nodes on my map. When I look at "Gatherable report" there are no entry's left. When i imported my friends database again there is a list of stuff there again.

    Importing a friends database is also not something that can be done without any problem. Often they get disconnected when sinding their dtabase. Than we have to start all over again.

    Can you please make a backup/restore function in gatherer?

    Since version 4.0.3 i can't see Cata nodes.

  • #3742

    Gatherer 4.0.3 added custom icons for many of the Cataclysm nodes which did not have such before.  The new icons work fine on my side.  Are you having problems with specific nodes or every Cata node type?

    Do the icons show up for the nodes in the Gathererables Report?

  • #3740

    If I update new version, the nodes on map are missing. I don't know why.

  • #3735

    you can have it in Italian?

  • #3736

    Gatherer is now partially available in Italian.  Unfortunately, I am still missing translations for quite a few game objects.  http://localizer.norganna.org/gathererNodes/missingStringsReport.php

  • #3738

    Gatherer's in game Node Names are compiled using a seperate system which is not user accessible.  This is because Gatherer must have the exact names in nodes in order to be able to recognize.  I am currently working to obtain this information from Wowhead, but I haven't completed the Italian locale yet.  Also, because the Italian locale is quite new, I expect Wowhead probably still needs help gathering data from that locale.

    If you want to post a list of string on the Gatherer forums I will look into adding them, but please be very certain of the names you provide as even a single typo can prevent Gatherer from correctly recognizing a node.

  • #3734

    Please do not report errors with Gatherer if you are not running the latest release. 

  • #3731

    Is there a way to download a database of all the known nodes?

  • #3732

    A database based on data from Wowhead is normally available here: http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info11707-GathererDBWoWHead.html

    However, it has not been updated for the current version of WoW and is not currently working.  I plan to have it available again in time for the MoP release. 

  • #3730

    What I'm running into is the nodes show up nicely on my mini-map, but I also get this mass in the middle my screen.  It's an orange glob and under it I can see the icons representing the herbs I harvested.  It grew as my range spread on discovered herbs.  When I turned off Gatherer both the icons on the mini-map and the middle of my screen went away.

  • #3727

    Something is wrong with Gatherer.

    Everytime someone Comes Online, or Joins/Leaves a Raid/Party i get a fraction of a second game pause.

    This didn't happen in 4.3.4.

  • #3729

    Why do you believe Gatherer is the problem?
