and all the archaeology solves in Pandaria after the cut.
You get six digs at a Pandaria digsite, instead of three as usual.
The resulting item is not a white that turns into vendor trash. Instead, it is turned into a crated box--which stacks!
These crates can be redeemed with the Lorewalkers. It's not implemented yet, but there's been talk of the Lorewalkers providing your character with more dialogue and cut-scenes about the artifacts you bring to them.

Best in Show: A Guide to All Shirts
2012/02/25 at 10:01 AM
Shirts can't be transmogged, but a well-chosen one can change the look of everyday gear. They're not restricted by class or armor limitations, so nothing is out of reach for avid collectors. They're great for both bank alts, players looking to cover up skin, or show off a rare find.
Plus, Ashelia has always wanted a shirt guide, and since this week marked a year for her at Wowhead, I thought it was a good time to write such a guide!
I've organized all the shirts by color, as well as providing descriptions, acquisition methods, and crafting materials. The descriptions are more elaborate than in the past--besides a written blurb, there's toggled user-submitted screenshots for every shirt.
Here's a a set of quick links to currently-obtainable items by source:
