Archaeology – sure is easy….

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.


ain-t-nobody-got-time-fo-dat-sweet-brown-31241125-480-330It 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.

    I actually got all the Pristine Done before I finished off all the ‘Collect 20′ achievements finished. It still took a while. I didn’t have an idea that it took people so much longer.

      Well I will probably do it whilst collecting pets in areas, if I see a zone I will tap it, but nto sure I am going to go out of my way :) Did you do it in one long stretch or just bits and pieces over time?

        I did it a lot after 5.1 came out, then gave it up! I came back and did the other half three months ago all at once in a big grind.

        I’ve been doing bits and pieces to break up pet battling / wait for cooldowns when I’m in the right zone.

          I keep saying I am going to do that… never happens :) how is the pattling going? How many 25s do you have now?

    That didn’t happen for me. I got all my pristine done way after I did all my 20.
