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...

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...

This mechagnome was likely damaged because it is no longer focused on its original tasks and seems content to follow you. Where to...

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...

History of the Mantid

Last night I was short just one Pristine Mantid artifact and even though I only had Mantid digs today, it still took around 100 artifacts before I had the Pristine Praying Mantid I needed. I was getting so sick of Mantid digs, I even completed the Feeding Pit site a couple of times after being teleported there with my Lorewalker’s Lodestones. That should give you an indication of how badly I wanted to finish History of the Mantid. But...

Seeker of Knowledge

The achievement to find and display all the pristine versions of all Pandaren and Mogu artifacts in The Seat of Knowledge is finally complete. I must admit, I never thought it would be so hard to finish, especially since I’ve only been short one pristine artifact for months but as one of my tracked objectives, it was definitely one of the more doable ones on the list – albeit time-consuming. As a result, over the last few...
