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

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.

I'm enjoying it so far. Was frustrating before I figured out how it works. Now I'm chugging along.

It's a nice way to see the world as well.

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.

    I've got one in Icecrown that's bugged the same way. It's trying to send me into a building.

    Yeah I was flying by the one that was bugged a little while later on my way to another and decided to give it a try and it apparently had changed the spot of the artifact and worked just fine.

    I had this same problem, probably in the same location (SE corner of Dire Maul). I found the same solution :D

    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).

    I saw one in the doorway of the SW Trade District bank and thought about whipping out my Mechanognome pet, but then I realized that I'm still 55 fragments away from it...

    I just hit 300 and I have found 1 rare so far, the fossilized hatchling. Those of you who have found multiple rares what levels did you first see the project?

    Just dinged 525 a minute ago. I'm working on my first Canopic Jar, fingers are crossed! So far I've gotten the raptor mount, the fossil hatchling, one BoA epic and 5 toys! My favorite are the Bones of Transformation

    Edit: Bleh, first Canopic Jar had a mummified organ in it.

    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.

    I've gotten a handful of the tablets and scrolls that let you fill in parts of certain items but at around 110ish no rares and nothing to uses the fillers on yet.
