The Last Relic of Argus

The Last Relic of Argus is a rare archaeology artifact that requires 300 skill to find and 130 Draenei Archaeology Fragments to solve. Up to three [Draenei Tome] keystones may be used to complete it.

Unsolved: This is a simple Draenei crystal that appears to be thousands of years old. You are fairly certain that it is not of this world.

Solved: Before they lived on Azeroth or Draenor, the Draenei, who still called themselves the eredar at the time, lived on Argus. When Sargeras took notice of Argus, Prophet Velen fled with some of his people, who became the Draenei. The remaining eredar were absorbed into the Burning Legion. This simple crystal was taken from Argus when Velen fled. The inscription on the bottom reads, ‘I long for Mac’Aree.’

It’s a nifty little item to use when you’re planning on completing a dig site or two; unless you just want to see where you end up. The first few times I used it, I would check my world map after zoning to see how close I was to any dig sites. More often than not I was usually within the same or one zone out from a dig site. Not bad if your didn’t want to use your hearth or it was down at the time.

There’s a set number of places you can get teleported to. The interesting thing is when you use the item, the cast bar displays ‘Teleport With Error’.

So far, I’ve been teleported to some pretty interesting places, some more than once including my “what the” moment which turned out to be inside the broken down Goblin statue outside Booty Bay, just after Cata hit.

All locations include:

Narain’s Hut, Tanaris

The Sundering (top of a tree), Northern Stranglethorn

Behind the Dark Portal, Hellfire Peninsula

Broken Commons Arena, Dire Maul

Black Channel Marsh, Wetlands

Galakka Hot Springs, Ungoro Crater

Nighthaven, Moonglade

Lost Rigger Cove, Tanaris

Inside the goblin statue at Janeiro’s Point, Cape of Stranglethorn

Mountain Peak, Blasted Lands

Irontree Woods, Felwood

Mardenholde Keep, Western Plaguelands

Scholomance, Western Plaguelands

Tainted Forest, Blasted Lands

Dawning Wood Catacombs, Duskwood

Back of Hive’Zora, Silithus

Dabyrie’s Farmstead, Arathi Highlands

Fuselight by the Sea, Badlands

Slitherblade Shore, Desolace

Cavern of Mists, Wailing Caverns

Shattered Dam, Wetlands

Crypt of Conan, Badlands

Scar of the Worldbreaker, Badlands

Fray Island, Northern Barrens

Iron Summit, Searing Gorge

Points to note:

  • This item is affected by haste;
  • Apparently Palis can use it to bubble hearth out of BGs too :P

  1. Hmm, might need to pursue more Draenei archaeology. This sounds slightly more useful than female Dwarves dancing or Troll war drums.

  2. Oh man, this is awesome. I HAVE to get my hands on this just because it seems so fun. Get drunk + randomly teleporting = Adventures and fun? :D Time to level archeology!

    • @Erinys – Agreed. The only reason I’m saving the Drum right now is for a future potential prop for one of my costumes :)

      @Dreamy – Hehe, as good a reason as any :P

  3. I keep hoping this will come up as a solve for me. It might put some extra fun back into just checking out random locations in the game. Very nice post!
