Archaeology Pets

The following pets are available through various branches of the archaeology profession.

Dwarf

Clockwork Gnome – requires 100x Dwarf Fragments (including up to 3x Dwarf Rune Stones)

Flavour text: Mechagnomes were created by the titans, apparently as servants and caretakers, much like the earthen. This mechagnome was likely damaged because it is no longer focused on its original tasks and seems content to follow you.

Gyrexle

Fossil

Fossilized Hatchling – requires 85x Fossil fragments

Flavour text: When you finished assembling this tiny skeleton through some eldritch magic, the little critter sprang back to life. He’s a pretty good pet. Since he’s a skeleton, he doesn’t eat much.

Fossilized Raptor + Fossilized Hatchling

As a bonus, the Fossilized Raptor may be discovered under the same branch of archaeology using another 100x Fossil fragments to complete.

Pterrordax Hatchling – requires 120x Fossil Fragments

Flavour text: It’s an adorable green baby pterrordax! Luckily, at this size, her sonic screeches won’t turn your eardrums to bloody pulps and while she’ll TRY to eat your face, it just feels like friendly little lizard-bird-thing kisses. Awww!

Pterrordax Hatchling

Troll

Voodoo Figurine – requires 100x Troll Fragments (including up to 3x Troll Tablets)

Flavour text: Voodoo figurines such as this were built and animated to assist troll witch doctors in minor, everyday tasks such as washing loincloths or scrubbing blood off the hut floor. They were often powered by flasks of mojo, troll sweat, the flesh of tribal enemies, or by DEVOURING TINY PORTIONS OF THEIR OWNERS’ SOULS. But don’t worry. Teeny, tiny little portions. You won’t even notice they’re gone. And think how clean your floors will be!

Idol of Decay

Tol’vir

Crawling Claw – requires 150x fragments (including up to 3x Tol’vir Hieroglyphic)

Flavour text: A legend among the tol’vir tells of a wicked djinn whom the Ramkahen sought to destroy.  In an attempt to prevent his own death, the djinn tried to transfer his spirit into the body of a monkey.  He was slain right in the middle of the transference, and only a fraction of his essence had moved over – only enough to possess the monkey’s paw.

Crawling Claw

Arakkoa

Ancient Nest Guardian – requires 250x fragments (including up to 4x Arakkoa Ciphers)

Flavour text: Harnessing the power of the sun as a never-ending fuel, these constructs were originally built as automated caretakers for young Arakkoa. With the conflict escalating between the Adherants of Ruhkmar and the Outcasts, many have been repurposed as instruments of war.

Ancient Nest Guardian

Draenor

Frostwolf Ghostpup – requires 175x fragments (including up to 3x  Draenor Clan Orator Cane)

Flavour Text: In life, no two creatures will share a stronger relationship than that of a Frostwolf orc and his or her companion wolf. The two eat, sleep, and fight side by side until one or both dies an honorable death. Even then, sometimes not even death itself can stop a frostwolf from coming to the aid of its beloved orc.

    • Oh good luck! At least you can trade in those restored artifacts into the Seat of Knowledge.

  1. One day that claw is going to be mine, maybe another six or seven expansions down the line :p

  2. I am also a member of the no claw club, and I even used all my Pandaria Archaeology trade-ins to try to get it.

    • I actually tried to get another one on an alt so I know how frustrating it can be. Hope your luck changes one day.

  3. I’m just now starting to recover from my loathing of archeology after the grind to get that Claw. That took a long, long time.

    • I wouldn’t say I loathed arch but I felt so relieved after all those arch achievements.

  4. Great list! Two questions, if you don’t mind. Is that the description for the regular Frostwolf Pup? And is there a lantern pet from archaeology as well?

    • Thanks! I thought it was time I featured all the pets unique to the profession.

      Yes, that’s the description when you discover the pup in your journal.

      There’s no lantern created from archaeology though, just enchanting. If you’re referring to the one from Cymre Brightblade’s team, it’s a discovery unique to my npc. :)

      • Ohhh! I didn’t realize that about the lantern. That’s so cool. I wonder where you discovered it — probably a civilization that heavily practiced magic?

        Post a Reply
        • Possibly. I wonder if @TheCrafticus would have anything to add to that? :)
