Hell yeah, baby! I’m done with Archaeology – at least for another expansion. It was really starting to feel like those pristine solves were taking a lot longer to complete so I decided to compare them with the ones from Pandaria.


Ogre: 243

Draenor: 287

Arakkoa: 271

Total: 1072


Mantid: 264

Pandaren: 298

Mogu: 668

Total: 1230

Yeah… it really wasn’t.

I ended up using 30 randomisers but they ended up being pretty useless since I was getting more dig sites I didn’t have any use for. The same thing happened with my Explorer’s Notebooks which gave me an abundance of Draenor and Ogre fragments and keystones. Thankfully, I bought 20 cheap Arakkoa Ciphers to help with the grind.

I thought it only fitting to take a picture with the artifact which gave me the most trouble – the sundial from the Arakkoan branch.

This weekend, I’d love to hear some exciting archaeology news but until then, here are some thoughts I had about the future of archaeology.
