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.


  • Tracking of all gathering professions and more!

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.

    Third and fourth post, though there is still another error.

  • #744

    I can't seem to find the comments buy "Lamecooter" or "machinethreat". Can someone give me a link to this page?

  • #742

    this addon doesnt even work. do i have to manualy do things do make it work? realy? so bad.

    click routes, make a route name, click ok,- nothing.. gg

  • #743

    There is a workaround.

    1) Go over the Routes page here at

    2) Find the October 18th comment by "LameCooter"   *AND*   the October 19th reply by "machinethreat"

    3) Replace the lines in the .../Routes/Plugins subdirectory as directed by those comments. (Remember to use a period and not a colon.)

    I did those replacements in the GatherMate2.lua file in that subirectory & loaded up WoW. GatherMate2 and Routes worked perfectly!!!

    (IMPORTANT: This workaround works for GatherMate2 alone. It does not work for Gatherer as the coding in Routes' Gatherer.lua file is done differently.)

    this addon dont work at all doesnt even show up ingame.

  • #740

    Version 1.3.1 (uploaded about 35 hours ago) appears to allow loading of the outdated 5.4.2 Gathermate2_Data addon. You still need to force 'Load Out of Date Addons', but the Import tab in Gathermate2 will now function and will import data.


    Thanks for fixing! :)

  • #739

    Yay, thank you. Imports now after your update :)

  • #736

    I can get the addon to run in newest patch 6.0.2 but all the data no longer shows. The import data section is simply greyed out. The addon itself works as if I visit a node and collect from it that node then shows up as normal on the map with the circle icon.

    I've tried a deletion of the app and the data and even tried older versions of both to no avail.

    Maybe somebody mined it recently and it hasn't respawned yet?

    Waffles and syrup.
