About GatherMate2

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.

    I recently changed a character's talent from leatherworking to mining. I can get mining nodes to show up on the maps but spawn points are not lit up and the ore nodes do not sparkle as they do for two other toons that also mine.

    I uninstalled gathermate2 and the data and reinstalled it with no success in correctly the problems mentioned above. I also checked to make sure the game setings were the same for all three toons that mine.  Is this a WOW issue or a gathermate2 issue?

    Thanks for your help.

    Is there a chance to release one that tells you where to find the (Herbalism) Golden Lotus's are?


  • #715

    Great addon. Cuts the time needed to actually have to search-and the possibility of missing a resource alltogether.

  • #714

    I think it's broken for 5.4.7

    Whenever I gather something the green circle appears on top of my character, but when I walk away the circle just stays in the same place on my minimap and doesn't move away from my character when I move. (could just be me?)

    recently install this addon but when i gather a herb dont show it in map or minimap, i have esMX client, any advice?

  • #710

    there are so many nodes on my mini map but i can only find a few in game. Whats wrong?

  • #711

    The nodes will show up on your map telling you where it spawns. Take ghost iron ore for example. Gathermate2 will show where all the nodes are. If nothing is there then that means it has not respawned yet

  • #708

    The only thing that this is missing is minimap circle coloring for Archeology that changes based on distance.  Any chance of getting this implemented?  Other than that, I'm quite happy switching from Gatherer for a more simplistic addon to get what I want done.

  • #707

    i have noticed in the gilneas the little circles that show where thing will rez, are following my postion on the mini map in a cluster. might want to check that out.

  • #706

    Can't import herb nodes... :(

    I'm in Elwynn forest and herbs node won't appear in my minimap. That's strange. I delete the addon and re install it but nothing had changed. 

    Any suggestion?

  • #713

    i have the same problem, you solved it?

    QUESTION: Didn't Gathermate use to blink the gather icons on the minimap? If so, please reinstate it... if not please add it. Distinguishing gather icons on the minimap from neutral NPCs is a pain to say the least. Thank you in advance; this will be most benificial.

  • #701

    Hi! I'm just wondering if we will ever see a filter for the Kafa'kota Bush in Kun-Lai Summit? This would make a lot of people farming here gleeful!

    Does not work for me either
