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!

1 - Downloaded (manually) the latest GatherDB_WowHead package from here, extracted it to my Addons folder.

2 - Renamed the DB_WowheadData.lua to .old (just so I could compare).

3 - Downloaded the DB_WowheadData.lua file from https://github.com/lloydpick/gathererdb_wowhead (the link in several messages below). NOTE: I did NOT bother downloading any of the other files at that location, because they BREAK, repeat, BREAK the entire process. You end up with a GatherDB addon that doesn't have a "Download" button!

4 - Fire up WoW, ensure Gatherer and GatherDB are enabled for one of my characters, enter the game with that character.

5 - Enter at the chat line gatherer /config. At the gather screen, click on "Database". At the new window, click on "Import". That actually integrates all the data in the DB_WowheadData.lua file (in this case, the new one I downloaded) into the Gatherer display. You'll see the "Importing Wowhead database" percentage and bar display, and it will NOT stop at 90-some percent. Works perfectly. There's data for at least the new Cata Mount Hyjal area and many others (donno if ALL the new areas or not, but it looks like it).

So, to review: use the latest GatherDB package, but replace ONLY the DB_WowheadData.lua file with the lloydpick lua data file.

Once you've performed that import once (for one character), the data will show for ALL your characters. You can then turn off the GatherDB addon (since it'll no longer be needed) and free up some memory.

Thanks a lot man. I had been unable to see any of the imported data from wowhead and it was stopping at around 90%. I could see the nodes that I had found myself but not anything else. This fixed it. If anyone is having the 90% import issue try the above directions. Make sure you have the latest versions of both Gatherer and GathererDB as well.

Thanks for the help Squire.

I had the problem with the unpatched package ... but that was weeks ago, just after Cata came out (and I might not have updated the addon).

I haven't experienced it since, can't replicate the problem, and so can't even begin to address the issue, sorry. I'm very pleased with this addon (I really like seeing the icons on my maps so I can tell where to forage), and am most pleased that we have the new data. I haven't tried it in all areas (still just working through the main new zones), but haven't noticed any blank or empty areas that others mention.

I'm presuming that, if I actually discover any new herb or mineral locations that weren't in the database, those locations will be reported when I do my daily post-game WowHead Client upload?

Missing...

Is it me or there's a lot of zones that are completely empty?

The code that is on that GIT repo is the same as the official addon, the only difference is the data in the DB_WowheadData.lua file. The other files which contain the importing code is identical.

As others have reported with the 90% stop issue, I can only imagine it has something to do with a rogue node of some sort somewhere about 90% in the import process. However after I update my DB I import it to make sure it works, which so far every time it has done.

Updated again now, and have set it on a weekly auto update.

dunno why people have issues with that, mine went too 100%, just places like hyjal where there is no nodes what so either is the annoying part

Jasmer,

Actually, it would be.

We have more than enough to do, otherwise, quite honestly. That said, we have tried working with some folks in the past and they only lasted for a couple of months before moving on- usually without any notice.

Since we have been creating and supporting AddOns for years now, we usually prove to be quite stable and reliable. We do our best, though, so, as noted below, will have another new version out soon.

Happy Gatherering - and Happy New Year to all!

Nikk

Bluechipps,

That is the point of the GathererDB_Wowhead, folks use the updater as they go about their usual business, and then it gets parsed out and updated. With the holiday, time has been short, but more will be enroute afterward.

For now, Limi's version appears to fill the niche quite nicely.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

Read the instructions at the bottom of the page for how to install.

Now has a working Stranglethorn (you may need to delete all the nodes associated with that area before it works), and data for Mount Hyjal is now in. Total number of nodes to import is around 38,180.

Tried it but it's still quitting out at 90.4% without saving the database

I'm having the same problem. I tried completely uninstalling both the database and gatherer itself(which probably did nothing but it made me feel better lol) & then reinstalled everything. The import goes to 90.4%, closes out like it finished even though it didn't, and then no nodes show up on anything.
