So many people I know have been working on their archeology that I thought there must be some reason for it that I was yet to discover. A little achievement called The Seat of Knowledge! Looks awesome having all your little items in the hall (Thanks Navimie for posting the piccie), you get a title “Seeker of knowledge” – it sounds very cool.
Looked easy enough, do some arch, discover some pristine items and hand them in. How hard could that possibly be? I should have read the comments first. I REALLY should have read the comments first.
I spent about 3 hours perhaps, flying around Pandaria and collecting dohickies and putting them together. I don’t know how many I collected, but I scored a Gun and a Sword and a whole bunch of other stuff.
But I didn’t discover any pristines at all, so then I thought perhaps I was doing it wrong and headed back to the Lorewalker Cho, and could find nothing of use at all. So I kept going for a bit longer and after gathering somewhere between 20 – 30 artifacts I gave up. I only gave up, because I read the comments, the comments which state that it took people like 400 + items to find all the pristine items.
400+!!! Just let that sink in for a moment.
It will all depend on how much time I have left over after getting my pet battles done and my Challenge modes. Honestly I have plenty of time – I still have months so I can’t think I won’t have time, I am just not sure I have the patience to do it. That is a buttload of archaeology to do and it isn’t the most enjoyable of things, I find it horrible boring.
