Archaeology in Legion

This is my first look at some of the information revealed at Blizzcon and datamined information. As such, this guide will develop over the next 10 months. 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 Keystone: Rare solve: Starlight Beacon Digsites include:...

Draenor Curator

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 at a time. It would probably be different if it didn’t require you to just dig (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...

Archaeology in Draenor

Once again, there are three new branches to uncover with a chance to dig up the Brittle Cartography Journal at a skill level of 1. Things to note: Four active digsites will be up at any time. If you find a certain (eg Ogre) branch locked but you know you’ve have fragments of that type, you will need to go out to one of the branch sites and dig. Each location may be dug up 9 times giving you between 5-9 fragments. You can hold up...

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. Fossil...

Watch Your Progress

Yesterday I was in the mood to work on some archaeology and noticed something quite different. Now I’m not sure if this was added in the last patch or not but check out this neat little progress bar. I used to use Archy which could tell you the same kind of thing but I’m all for using less addons. So after working through a few digs in Kalimdor, I eventually saw this: Hello Uldum :) Share...
