Archaeology Mounts

The following mounts are available through various branches of the archaeology profession. So far, there are four. Fossil Fossilized Raptor – requires 100x fragments Flavour text: Legends tell of a spell placed upon a hunting raptor who dared to snarl at young Tyrande Whisperwind as she bathed in a jungle pool. The beast is cursed to wander Azeroth – until it apologizes. Tol’vir Scepter of Azj’Aqir – requires 150x...

Archaeology in Legion

In Legion, a new archaeologist can head to the Broken Isles and level up the profession from scratch. The archaeology trainer in Dalaran can teach you the next level of archaeology or you can loot the Excavator’s Notebook from a dig site or spawned mob – even as a novice. Things to note: Three active dig sites will be up at all times Many dig sites are now markedly smaller Each location may be surveyed 9 times (offer 5-19...

Time to Dig

With Legion still months away and no beta access, I figured I should try and collect the last of my archaeology rares. It’s not something I’m particularly looking forward to but it’s something to do while I wait for new content. Wish me luck. How are you filling in the time?

Changes to Archaeology

This is my first look at some of the information revealed at Blizzcon and datamined information.  During Blizzcon, we were told archaeologists would be taken on an expansion length campaign revealed over several months and shown what looks like two rare solves from the Highbourne and Demonic branches of Legion. Highborne, Highmountain Tauren and Demonic will be the three new branches. Rare solves include the Starlight...

Hell yeah, baby! I’m done with Archaeology – at least for another expansion. It was really starting to feel like those pristine solves were taking a lot longer to complete so I decided to compare them with the ones from Pandaria. Draenor Ogre: 243 Draenor: 287 Arakkoa: 271 Total: 1072 Pandaria Mantid: 264 Pandaren: 298 Mogu: 668 Total: 1230 Yeah… it really wasn’t. I ended up using 30 randomisers but they ended...

Archaeology Wish for Legion

Archaeology was an exciting profession back in Cataclysm and while there are aspects I do enjoy, it’s not a profession I can happily do for hours on end. It would probably be different if it didn’t require just digging (although that slightly changed in WoD) or have to fight through mobs but I would love to see them reinvent the profession to make it more engaging and fun. Smaller Dig Sites One thing I’d like to see...

Archaeologists Rejoice!

As probably the most exciting news to come since… my own npc, I have some awesome news to share. Ever since the Toy Box was revealed, I’ve wondered whether Blizz would be able to restore all those archaeology items we’ve destroyed over the years for room. In fact, it’s something I’ve mentioned and asked several times on Twitter but I now have a definitive answer. @Cymre one of our engineers produced some...
