They need to overhaul it and make it a full minigame. I wanna brush the dirt off my artifacts with a little brush.
Depressing for the 6 people who actually do archaeology.
My favorite thing about archaeology were the tiny bits of extra lore it added with every item. Will miss that.
Yeah. In its current state most people dont even bother trying it
needs a full rework to make it fun minigame like and less grindy
Disappointed! I really enjoy archeology.
Honestly, just remove it.
Kinda stupid if you ask me. I understand that it is Shadowlands, but it has been around for thousands of years and there are races there that aren't dead, like the Faun. Like the Vanthyr. You mean to tell me nothing has happened to them in the past?Also there are more than 6 people who do Archaeology.I love archeology and like getting Pristine Items to display.
I knew BFA would kill it.Archeology was so good in Legion. This is why we need High Examiner Tae'thelan Bloodwatcher to come back.Sad times, archeology is really comfy.
Blizzard never listens to the subs and continue to drive WoW in the ground this expansion I am sure will drive out 20% more people.
old world revamp post Shadowlands confirmed, LOL
This is entirely stupid. I do like archeology, just in smaller doses. Fix what you have, not just stop doing anything about it.
Just finished up the 250 Legion digsite achieve a few nights ago, sad to see them just dropping this - but can't say I think they ever gave it a decent go.
I am shocked! Shocked! Well, not that shocked.
The soul-crushing grind for Ultramarine Qiraji Battle Tank really dampened my enthusiasm for archaeology (I still don't have it! Even though every expansion since I've handed in boxes to get Tol'vir boxes). And the ridiculously grindy achievements made it so I'll never finish off the professions tab.I'm still max archaeology, but I won't miss it.
If you don’t want to update it, leave it in the game but do not remove it.
What a ludicrous article, 'well garrison's didn't continue beyond WoD' what utter nonsense, we've had the worst aspect of that system as core mechanics to the two expansions after WoD, and we're getting a trimmed down version for the next expansion.Archaeology isn't for everyone, obviously, but I eagerly looked forward to in shadowlands with a bunch of new cultures and an entire realm of history to explore.This just smacks of blizz trying to skimp on story like they did in BFA.And yes, to those above, I had really hoped that sweeper bot quest in zandalar was going to set a precedent for future special quests in archaeology, but alas they'll probably reintroduce archaeology in 9.2 and try to make it sound like they went the extra mile when all they will do is put two factions in with a couple of toys and a pet as rewards.
