Archaeology - Pristines all done!
Boy was I pleased when I got my last pristine dig! Pristine Malformed Abyssal you are finally complete!
I was very lucky, it only took me 176 Legion digs to finish all my pristine legion artifacts. There is an achievement for 250 digs, so I guess I should keep digging to get that achievement (which awards a cool title).
I didn't realise that I could use my crated artifacts to buy Draenor dig pieces! So I decided to hand all my boxes in I was super thrilled when the last Draenor pristine I needed popped up (Warsong Ceremonial Pike)
So, some things about Legion archaeology...
- The NPCs that come can be shared. You can get a drop item that summons a hostile NPC, or when one appears when you are digging, then your party members can loot it as well
- The golden dig sites can be hit or miss. You are more likely to get things like artifact power and extra items from the golden sites, but it's not guaranteed. I had one that had an extra item in all but 3 digs, and other times I had no extra items. I also did not notice a significant increase in the number of artifact pieces from a golden site compared to a regular one
- Even if you finish all the quests of archaeology you can do them again. I'm not sure what happens with duplicates (because I didn't do all of the quests again) but I am sure some of the items were worth a decent amount of gold
Now, I still have to get that Blue Qiraji mount... darn this Tol'vir! I guess I won't be getting that until next expansion...
