GathererDB WoWHead  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.0.2013-06-15
by: Esamynn, dinesh, MentalPower, Nechckn, Norganna, norganna_uploader

WoWInterface is happy to announce that we have teamed up with Wowhead and the Norganna's AddOns Gatherer team to provide you with an exclusive downloadable Wowhead database for display in-game by Gatherer.

This addon will provide you with all the information currently in the Wowhead database showing all known locations of herbs, minerals and treasures. Now you can simply load up Gatherer, plug this database into it, and know what can be found in the zone you are in, without having to discover them yourself.

Wowhead will be providing regular dumps of their database to the Norganna team, who will then update the GathererDB Wowhead addon exclusively here on WoWInterface.


How it works
The import procedure is simple and painless. Once you have installed the AddOn and have reloaded the game, ensuring that both Gatherer and GathererDB_Wowhead are activated. When you finally log into the game, follow this procedure to import the new data into Gatherer:
  • Open Gatherer's configuration dialog.
  • Click on the red "Database" tab on the left-hand side of the dialog.
  • Click the import button in the main panel.

Make sure to add GathererDB-Wowhead to your favourites list here on WoWInterface and check back periodically to see if it's been updated, or get an email sent to you whenever they update it if you have those notifications turned on. Any time they update it, just re-download GathererDB-Wowhead and update your local copy.


Help improve the database
If you want to contribute your data back to Wowhead to continue expanding the database, please download and install the Wowhead client (available for both PC and Mac) and just follow the instructions on their site.


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 the minimap.

When you view your World Map, you will also see the item locations clearly marked on each zone's map.


About Wowhead
Wowhead was created with one sole intent: to provide World of Warcraft players with an extensive database and tools to enhance their gaming experience. This website is our contribution to this wonderful game.

Our user community is a big part, if not the biggest part, of Wowhead. Almost all of our information comes from our users, through data uploads from the Wowhead Client, comments on database entries and screenshot submissions! The site also features forums, where users can ask questions, discuss important Warcraft-related topics, recommend and share favorite addons, and much more!

Re: Um

Kleborg,

Did you unzip GathererDB_Wowhead when you downloaded it? The rest of the steps sound about right.

When you click on "Addons" in the lower left of the Character Selection Screen, do you see GathererDB_Wowhead listed, and is there a gold check in the checkbox? If not, then you are not installing it correctly.

If you see it and you have the gold check, continue into the game and then right click the Gatherer icon on the SlideBar menu to open the Gatherer DB window, click "Configure" at the bottom right, and then select Database from the options on the left. You then simply click "import".

If you still do not get it to work, let us know.

Happy Sales,

Nikk

Re: Older Data

Tft,

The data is obtained from people running the Wowhead client. There are a few nodes that no longer exist, but as of now, there is no better alternative. Out of the thousands, likely one to two hundred are either slightly off or removed.

Remember that the database shows where the spawn points are located but we have no way to know whether they are actually active, with a gatherable item, at a given time. The "yellow dot", supplied to the client by Blizzard, is a protected function and not accessible to any AddOns.

All that said, the original intent of Gatherer was to have people, guilds, and parties develop their own data sets. Most of us on the development team prefer the "challenge" of creating our own DB and only use the GathererDB when testing. The background of GathererDB is that it was created to satisfy the needs of those who lost their data or were just starting and lacked the history of the users who have a few years worth of data.

Best of luck to you and your guild mates, "doing it yourself" is much more fulfilling than downloading a pre-set DB. =)

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

In the Eastern Plaquelands the data was so off that I had to just remove that area from the DB to get a fresh look. I also noticed treasure chest in some very odd places.

Is it possible that I'm just pulling an older DB file down?

A good portion of our guild is now using Gatherer so we will start compiling a list of our own but it would be nice to have a fairly complete list already handy.

Don’t worry. Gatherer and GathererDB, and the vast majority of all addons, are legal and not violating TOS or EULA.

You can check out this “blue answer” by Aeus from 31/07/2007 if you’re worried:
http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread....533114&sid=1#2

It still holds up, and of course the same goes for DB since it’s also only consists of .lua and .toc files.

You can also check out this discussion if you want:
http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread....sid=1&pageNo=1

Warcrap might act like a troll imo, hehe, but I believe you’ll find some of the replies both clarifying and reinsuring.

Or as September puts it in reply no. 112:
”A quick rule of thumb: If it goes in the AddOns folder and only there, it's not cheating.”

Enjoy and good luck!

Nikk,

Thank you for the swift reply. I appreciate the feedback and will try scouring the forums for info. My only concern was with uploading the GathererDB and whether Blizz would consider it a violation. With over 600,000 downloads of said addon, I feel fairly confident that it isn't a problem. All the same, I'll check back periodically to see if anyone has any hard facts to link. Thank you again and my god, I love the work you do!

Archimedes70,

Do not have anything off hand, but Gatherer has been around for years now. It is one of the most popular AddOns on the "major" AddOn sites and we have direct interaction with a few of the Blizzard developers- should any of our AddOns have been any sort of violation, we would have removed them long ago.

If your guild leader would like, they can verify the function calls, based on those at http://WoWWiki.Com/api ; all are unprotected, "open" functions.

As to the database, that is all based on information freely available from the client files. We abhor any sort of hacking of the game client that would violate that TOS/EULA and simply have none of it. In fact, that is simply mentioning private servers or "gray" functions is one of the surest ways to find yourself on our site's banned list.

Will try to find if there are any specific posts/comments. Not sure if there are any, directly, but you can search the official Blizzard Customer Service Forums for any mentions of Gatherer, GathererDB, Auctioneer, or Enchantrix, to find any sort of "bad" mentions.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

Re: Re: Un'Goro Power Crystals

MisterShady,

Interesting, and yes, there is some translation between what Gatherer calls the nodes and what GathererDB is able to obtain from our WoWHead friends.

Once able to get in and look at things, will have a better idea of what is up.

Appreciate the input and all... will see what we can do.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

OK. I tried disabling all of my other add-ons. The power crystals were still there. I then blew away my gatherer add-on folders as well as my server saved variables and my character specific saved variables and reinstalled gatherer. I then redownloaded Gatherer and the DB. With all of my other add-ons disabled, I started up the game. Once in game, I unchecked "power crystals" in the GathererDB treasure list. The Un'Goro power crystals are still showing up.

Does it make a difference that on the map they are named "Red Power Crystal" "Blue Power Crystal" and "Green Power Crystal", whereas in the GathererDB list they are named just "Power Crystals"?

Thanks for taking your time in helping me with this!

Re: Un'Goro Power Crystals

Perhaps try disabling all of your other AddOns and see if the behavior remains.

MisterShady,

Very odd; do you have any sort of map addon running?

Re: Re: Re: Cannot import database..

Popogigio,

If you do not see database as an option, then you do not have the GathererDB_Wowhead properly installed.

You need to install it, just like any other AddOn.

When you click the "Addons" button in the lower left of the Character Selection Screen, ensure that GathererDB_Wowhead has a gold check mark in its check box.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

edit: corrected spelling
