As of about 10am server time this morning I started working on Archeology myself. In that time I've uncovered (And are working on) the following items:

(as of 2.49 pm {this post} I am at 99 Archaeology and switching from Kalimdor to the Eastern Kingdoms to see if I can't dig up more Troll and Dwarf items)

Working off of a level 80 Troll Priest; starting Archaeology within the area of Kalimdor

Levels 1-75 harvested 1 or 2 Fragments each dig
Levels 76-150 harvested 3 fragments each dig

~~Night Elves~~

First group: 30 finds
Discover: Scandalous Silk Nightgown (common)
Flavor Text: This rather flimsy garmet is woven in a fine mesh, most likely of spider silk. The cloth is a silvery white that subtly shifts color in the light.
Zones: Southwind Village (Silithus),Ruins of Eldre'thar (Stonetalon Mountains), Irontree Woods (Felwood), Ruins of Isildien (Feralas)

Second Group
Discover: Highborne Pyxis (common)
Flavor text: This is a small box of delicate ceramic, probably used to store cosmetics, jewelery or other small items belonging to a Highborne lady. The clasp is of silver and fashioned to look like two acorns and a holly leaf
Zones Mannoroc Coven and Ethel Rethor (Descolace), Ruins of Ordil'aran and Forest Song (Ashenvale), Ruins of Eldarath area (Azshara)

Third Group
Discovers: Necklace with Elune Pendant (common)

One of her aspects is the Night Warrior, who takes the valiant among the dead and sets them riding across the sky as stars.
Zones: Dire Maul (The Maul - Feralas), Oneiros, Ruins od Isildien (Feralas)

Fourth Group
Discovers: Cloak Clasp with Antlers (common)

I'm currently over 200 Arch, have gotten the Fossilized Hatchling and I Had It in My Hand.

I love all the Indiana Jones references in this profession.

Currently trying to get to 525 as fast as possible in Archaeology while mixing in some leveling so I don't burn out.

Edit: Tips?

Don't assemble any projects until you're 100+. Mount up if the light is red, run/walk if it's yellow/green.

Red lights can be misleading, but will eventually get you to a yellow/green. It'll get more intuitive as you go, and start to learn how it works.

Stick to one continent as much as you can, pre-300. It shortens travel times. Post-300, you have to go to outland, so meh.

Don't try to finish one project to the exclusion of others. Hit every single dig site you can.

Most of all don't worry about rushing. It's ridiculously chancy what dig sites you get.

Yeah, and the rares are fun. I've gotten two pets, a mount, and some random fun items thus far.

Oh, and the Indiana Jones titles (and references) are awesome, too.

Finally started getting rares today. I got an Orc epic Headdress of the First Shaman, a pet, and a couple other things. I'm currently working on Queen Azshara's Dressing Gown. It's a really good time waster for when I don't feel like questing. The only problem is once you get everything there is no need to ever do it again. They need to put in a few BOE items that are really rare or hard to get.

Blizzard has stated that they'll be putting in more stuff.

I'd assume that each patch they'll be putting in more loot and expanding it. The BoA items especially are nice, and they have a whole host of weapons and gear to recycle as Archaeology BoA epics.

    issue with a dig site being bugged? I appear to have one that is. I follow it where it points and I get a a green one point outside the dig site. I move one inch forward and I cannot dig there, but I move one inch back and the survey spotter points the same way still.

    Not a huge issue, but it is one less digsite in the Eastern Kingdoms for me.

    In a thread in General, I posted how I got a digsite in the wall between the Uldaman entrance cave and the outside part of the zone.

    I put in a ticket, and they reset it the next day so that I had a different dig that was reachable, allowing me to complete the site and get back to four on the main map.

    I had this problem in a part of Dire Maul, and I left to dig another site, then went back. The site of my last find of the site reset after digging at another site, allowing me to complete the Dire Maul site.

    Just something I found, hoping it'll help you guys out.

    Yup, same exact location. Right by the tree in the SE corner, trying to send you what appears to be 5 yards further out, but the dig site ends at the tree.

    I'm just happy that Blizzard lets the fragment locations change. It's a really good idea, since they didn't know how many would be bugged (it's not many that are).

    My first rare was the mirror, and I didn't get that until around 250. From then on though I got a steady stream of rares.

    Just save them. I was in the same boat until around 400 skill, when I suddenly started to get a bunch of 2-3 fragment items to make. My stacks of 10+ troll/dwarf/Night Elf fillers are now 0-2 each.

    I'm having fun leveling Archeology. I like experimenting with new addons, so I've looked around and recommend trying Archy along with TomTom, and turn on TomTom integration and sound within Archy. It alerts and assists you with completing projects, as well as providing waypoint information and an onscreen arrow to your next digsite. To me, it makes it more fun, like having a gps.

    i had the great joy [iam not kidding] of this incident where this level 45 dwarf went BERSERK when we happened to have a digsite on teh same area. Now i know the digsites arent shared even if you're on the same spot as another at the same time...but he certainly didnt.

    he started going into shift happens mode. abusing me and screaming about how i can do things expletive easy cause iam expletive flying on my expletive mount and my mother and father and all my loved one's and people i so much as glance at are multiple stacks of expletives and its taking forever for him to level archeology and he needs his vial and i have to pay him 24,000g because iam taking that much away from him and just cause iam a high level i think i can bully him and take his nodes and i dont deserve to live and he'll report it to my guild and ruin my name on the server and everyone will know i bully and steal low levels nodes from under them and atleast 4 more whispers that i've forgotten but were hitting the word limit per post.

    Like not even halfway through i had already taken my 3 nodes and flown off. I was HIGHLY amused at all the **** he was bringing up, then my heroic random triggered and i put him on ignore and had a good group for lost city [we died a lot on the 2nd last boss cause of some odd Los [or so the healer claimed..] with the stairs which was easily fixed by having hte boss trigger his 2nd phase below the stairs]

    Just started leveling Archaeology last night. It was really boring just going around digging until I stopped getting skill ups. In fact I got really frustrated once I hit the 90's, so once I hit 95 I said **** it, and started solving them. I got my Assistant Professor title with the raptor hatchling, and up to 170 or so. Once you start solving things it's a lot more fun. :D

    I hit 300 this morning with rares two and three, working on the fourth now. I like it more now with the rare, but skill ups take a long time when you're doing three rare at once. I got the mini and large raptor and the mech gnome pet and working on the druid/priest statue. Also lvl 82.5 so far.

    Did 209 over this weekend (finally cracked and started assembling fragments after 90m working on last point) and my last set of assembles (deliberately choose to do fossils last) was the raptor pet - not enough pieces to complete yet but nice to know it's coming.

    So far, I've managed to get the fossil pet, the gnome pet, and the fossil mount (yay!), as well as a couple other rares that are just flavor pieces (like the dancing dwarves, or the mirror image). Yes, I have been spending a fair amount of time on archaeology (LOL).

    I'm at 525, so now I'm just chasing new finds. The problem becomes that it's harder to get the new finds. One example...on Kalimdor, it's hard to get the Tol'vir dig sites because the spawns compete with all the Night Elf, fossil, and other spawns covering the rest of the continent. Also, Dwarf seems to be a little harder to get on Eastern Kingdomes, where Troll sites abound. Night Elf sites are also common in higher levels areas, so Nelf and Troll tend to be overkill. I foresee having to go through a lot of Nelf and Troll sites to ultimately do all the cultures.

    As for scrolls, tablets, etc...I don't inherently see any reason to hold onto them. Whether you use them to get 12 pts for a common, or 12 pts for a rare, you still need those 12 pts. Maybe there's a psychological reason for saving them for big projects, but I don't really think it makes a difference. You'll have to get the pts one way or the other anyway.

    Overall, I'm addicted to archaeology so far. I may get tired of running all over the place to dig stuff, but for now I just can't stay away.

    Trust me, the scrolls/tablets help a lot. Time wise, think about this. you are working on a rare that takes 120 fragments, and has 3 keystone slots. If you are at 90 fragments, to get the project completed you would have to go to about 2 more (Maybe 3 if your unlucky) dig sites. The next digsite of that type might be on the other side of the contentent, and what if it is one of those rarer digsites, like say nerubian or tol'vir. By just placing the keystones you find while diging up fragments, you can save yourself a lot of hardship and time.

    But, the thing is, it doesn't really matter (other than possibly psychologically) when you choose to use those scrolls.

    Say you have a common that needs 35 fragments followed by rare that takes 120 fragments. In total, you need 155 fragments. Does it matter whether you use scrolls to complete the common artifact faster, or the rare artifact faster? Not really, you still need a combination of 155 fragments, whether it's from scrolls or artifacts. If you don't use the scrolls on the smaller common projects, you still have to get the fragments to solve the common artifacts. So, it's basically a wash: use the scrolls on available projects when you have them and farm fragments for other projects later, or farm the fragments now and use the scrolls later. Six of one, half dozen of the other.

    If there's a logical reason why you should save scrolls, I'd love to hear it, because I'd love to know if there's a better way.

    Not to mention, using keys to burn through commons faster means that you burn through the commons faster, and get to the rares/epics sooner - giving you more information to use in planning your time.

    Yeah - that's odd.

    Just got the mirror with the useless mirror image and still working on the baby raptor (fossil sites are way too rare IMO).

    The XP is still obscene - at 82 with full rested I'm getting 19.5k per dig - will probably ding 83 and possibly even 84 before I hit 525. This is gonna suck on my main as I'm not really enjoying this and with no XP gain to at least make it feel like I'm not simply doing busy work...sigh.

    Edit - oh yeah, if anyone was wondering/worried you can have two rares being worked on at once - I had the hatchling for a bit and then the mirror popped so you needn't worry about not doing combines for fear of missing a rare coming up.

    Wait till you finish both rares, you'll find fossil sites everywhere. I got the mount and pet days ago and now I'm just wasting my time digging up fossils.

    This. WTB more dwarf digsites.

    Been sitting at 525 archaeology for a few days now. It's a strangely relaxing profession, whenever i have downtime between heroics or BGs or after finishing dailies i zoom around hunting for troll digsites. I'm after the troll rare:

    Zin'rokh

    Though i understand the lv 85 BoA epics are extremely rare. I haven't seen one on my server yet, or even in LFG. A guildie is working on the dwarven caster staff, knowing our luck we'll discover each other's weapon. I've found 9 rares so far so it would be nice to become Associate Professor with the best weapon in the game at the moment (since no one is close to killing Nefarian on heroic mode). There are quite a few troll sites in Eastern Kingdoms, even so it's unavoidable you'll have to clear out fossil and dwarf and even a few NE sites to cause more troll ones to spawn. I'm sitting on something like 850/35 for my next fossil solve so i'm set for when they add more troll rares!

    edit: I wish i had researched the profession a little more before starting. If you're after a Zin'rokh like me you should collect but not solve troll artifacts until 450 skill as it's required before the weapon can appear.

    Hmm. We have two in my guild so far, but we have at least five toons skillcapped. I got ridiculously lucky, and after just one Tol'vir common, found Ring of the Boy Emperor, which pushed my paladin over the magic 329. The very next Tol'vir was the Canopic Jar, but my hunter is not my alchemist, so I'll have to skill my paladin up 250 more points to get a shot at the dragon (how many bets that he won't get the Jar so soon?).

    I'm loving Archaeology so far. I'm using the time on taxis to work on my interface, update macros, and the like - in addition to waiting around and/or killing time. Basically, anything that you do in-game that doesn't involve having your toon actually taking actions or require them to be in a specific place can be used for Archaeology. It's the new fishing, only more so.

    I've been having tons of fun with archaeology. I got to 525 and only had 3 rares by that time. Since then I've been trolling Eastern Kingdoms also waiting on the sword, but alas none yet. (up to 5 rares and working on my 6th now)

    Edit: Moved rest of post to new thread.

    Noticed a bug with the Druid and Priest statue from NE - it doesn't give a skill up for making it - I got no points and neither did my gal when either of us did the combine.
