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.

    Is it possible do get the locations of herbs to display when you hit M for the main map. Mine don't appear to show. Thanks.

  • #508

    answer is 3 comments down (or up depending on how you view them)

  • #507

    Just installed version 2.1.1 on a WoW 1.8.2 (EU version english)and like Damarius there are no items on the worldmap.

  • #506

    Hi everyone,

    Gatherer works fine except one problem:

    Items are not shown on world map (worldmap setting is on). I use the German client, downloaded the latest version and replaced my old one. How can I fix this?

    Best regards.

  • #505

    remember that when displaying items on the minimap the algorythm that determine closest stuff consider adjacent zones too, with the new scale in Silithus that's bound to be a bit weird.

    since there no reference I've been able to find on the method the original Map Notes people used to deduce the scales and offset for each zone, this one will be hanging around till someone can provide some intel on that.

    @Swirler: tried the "show items" button on the lower left corner of the world map? (described in the documentation, world map chapter and in the 2.0.4 series changelog).

  • #504

    Just confirming the issue as reported by Qrt - Un'Goro items (soils and sprouts) are appearing on the minimap when in Silithus, although they do not appear on the Silithus zone map.

    I'll try the Node Editor.

  • #503

    The problem is fixed, thank you Islorgris

  • #502

    The thing is.. the erroneous nodes do not show up on the worldmap of Silithus. There I only get the usual mineral veins. The Un'Goro Soil and Bloodpetal Sprouts only show up on the minimap. So I guess it must be a wandering mininote syndrom of some kind. :)

  • #501

    @Qrt: simply use the node editor to remove the node categories on the silithus map (see Node Editor section in the documentation for usage) since spawn points and scale has changed in the 1.8 WoW client patch, until we get the new scale somehow it's possible you'll see the wandering mininote syndrome make a come back.

    @HOPE: this is completely independant of MapNotes (which is one of the reason why it's bigger, the other reason being that it has much more functionnalities that Map Notes Gathering).

    @Bonescrolls: did'nt have time to check on your problem, will keep you posted.

  • #500

    Thanks for the reply - running at 1900x1200 widescreen. All video settings set to max quality.

    Have posted same request on EnhTooltip board (plus Auctioneer - think he/she seems to mod the tooltip too)

  • #499

    Do we need mapnotes for this addon? Seems much bigger than other gatherer addons with dependency to mapnotes. Got two running gatherer version, yours and this: http://www.curse-gaming.com/mod.php?addid=1285 That is the mapnotes continued version with gatherer continued. So what is the difference and what are the similarities please?

  • #498

    I seem to have some problems with Gatherer after the latest patch. The new Silithus map seem to have moved some thing around, so I now get Un'Goro Soil and Bloodpetal Sprouts icons showing in Silithus.

    Is there any way to purge Silithus and Un'Goro data and start over gathering new data as these two regions seem the only ones affected?

  • #497

    @igorpontes: yes it works fine on 1.8, for those wondering, we don't believe in making releases for the sake of a client patch if nothing critical has been broken (besides I have a work, a life, limited game-time and I dislike artificially increasing the download stats by making meaningless releases).

    @caltobadiron: Un'goro stuff was included in version 2.0.4, Felwood stuff as stated many times before will never be included because it doesn't fit our item criteria.

    @HOPE: hm, develop this a bit on the Gatherer forum, from what I understand of what you envision it's probably not possible due to the nature of the graphic used in-game (besides it would have limited utility since you would mostly see the node sets, oh yes node are regrouped in sets for spawning purpose in case you hadn't noticed).

    @Bonescrolls: works fine here, what resolution do you use (though my guess is that tooltip modifying addons are misadjusting the position)?

  • #496

    Hi - I use Gatherer in conjunction with Auctioneer + Enhanced Tooltip. All are loaded (confirmed via "/ace list" plus both show up in Titan panel)

    Is there anyway I can reposition the tooltips - when a herb pops up on the minimap and I highlight it the tooltip is partially hidden off the top of the screen meaning I usually have to guess what the item is.

    /etooltip anchor does nothing (enhance tooltip command that is suppsoed to let me reposition the text)

    Anyone else had this problem ?

  • #495

    Could you make the following please? On big map (alphamap as well maybe but thats other addon not yours I know), there could be a button. If you toggle it the map could show a shaded area of the gathered stuff where you gathered the most ore/herbs/etc in a given category (if you choose to select, or just a "dense amount" you need). Like if you can set up the visibility in a certain distance (on minimap, default 4yards right?), we could use some similar data and check the "richness" of the area. So you could shade the map/minimap with red(low), yellow (medium), green (rich) areas. Maybe it's even more usefull than small icons. ;)
