This looks good! Archology is the best 2nd profession, and a fun way of exploring the game. Just hope that you wont need to be lvl 90 to learn 525+
These changes look good. Tables will be flipped if they only apply to Pandaria digs, though.
I'm on a PvP server, so I think it's going to be interesting to teleport to a digsite and end up on top of an Alliance character currently surveying or in combat with a Sha.. I wonder how this will affect world PvP, if at all. Right now most people don't bother cause they're in the midst of a grind with Arch, I wonder if they'll be more inclined to engage.
I am getting really excited about all the changes Mists is bring - what I really want to know is a release date so I can at least know how long I have to wait...I think these changes to Archaeology are great - and like most people have said I hope they apply the changes to current dig sites as well as Mists digs.One thing did confuse me - I like that we can hand in our common artifacts for Valor - that is awesome. However what will happen with rare drops - I assume they will still give fun items, pets, mounts etc... - how will that work with the hand in thing? Sorry if this is a silly question - I am just curious.
The way I read this, you have to be exalted before you can buy the lodestone or the map. Will that mean you won't be able to use either of them while you are doing the heavy amount of travel involved with leveling? By the time you are exalted, won't the bonus be moot for most people?
A friend of mine toldme that these "Lorewalkers" would also like completed artifacts of non-pandaria archaeology factions. So I started looking for every artifact I could find and now my bank is filled with completed archaeology finds. My question is: Do the Lorewalkers also accept non-Pandaria archaeology finds in their library?(if it is a library)
Thanks. This does mean that I have some extra gold.
I really like the icons coming in MoP.Though i also see we have another pleasant icon to look at *stares down panderan female statue*/male
no mounts. Boo.
This looks amazing! I re-joined with the free pre-pandaria 7 days of time and poked archeology for a day. Got 3 rares and love the increase in dig sites and frags per site! (Still didn't get a single rare in 20 solves for Tol'Vir, which has 5 rares left, but I *did* find the mount pattern on my Alch, so it's not all bad).I sincerely hope what this post implies about the amount of lore and interesting things coming isn't just hearsay. A truly interesting archeology profession on its own is enough to get me interested in coming back.
On my archy map it says kypari vor dig site unknown?I have updated add on, but still says it?
