Archeology is something to do while waiting in the dungeon finder queue that doesn't cause damage necessitating repairs before entering the random.
No tank items, just dps and caster.... not helpful...Well I think there's a STR 1H a tank can quite capably use.
Hmm. I out leveled a couple of outland zones when I leveled arch from 75 - 225. Probably slower than normal grinding, but it was pretty fun (for now...) and some nice chunks of exp.
I think it's pretty horrible profession. It's a huge time waste. I think it lures you in especially if you're a class that can use that epic sword. Who wouldn't want an epic sword that they don't even have to raid for? Especially now that raids are actually difficult.Another thing I don't like about arch is the fact that you can apparently (just going on what I've heard because I personally haven't leveled the profession at all) get duplicate artifacts. Maybe that's cool when the artifact is a common or junk item, but if I got a duplicate blue or epic quality item I'd be pissed.Basically arch is a lot like gambling...except instead of using money you're using time. I don't really approve of the profession and I'll only be leveling it if I've exhausted almost everything else there is to do in WoW.
COOL ! This is what I'm looking 4 :X
So far I'm 380/525 and have discovered no rare artifacts... but like an addict at a slot machine I keep doing it... hopefully I'm building karma so I get something epic.
i got cataclysm around 10-15 days after it came. i was the first to max archaeology in my guild and atm i am missing only one achievement... it is ok for thoose that dont mind the grind, lets you flex your ego at thoose who dont grind at all.
