When I first played through the beta, I was never able to loot the Ancient Pandaren Tea Pot due to the high level of phasing so when the achievement came out, I knew I would be one item shy from completing the Riches of Pandaria. Thankfully, this was no longer an issue after the addition of patch 5.1.
Each artifact may only be looted once per character but only 18 are needed for credit. You will run into many of these just by levelling through each zone but to help keep track of what you’ve already looted, use the following macro.
where ‘XXXXX’ refers to the flag quest number of each item you’re checking. If the result comes back as 1, it means you’ve already looted that object on that given character as opposed to a ‘nil’ result, meaning you’re still eligible to see and loot the item.
The remaining list of objects do not seem to count towards any of the achievements but are still a great source of XP and gold. It’s no wonder these were one of my favourite ways to level myself to 90.
