Hello bbs, all right with you guys? Welcome to the World Of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth Archaeology Guide.
The focus of this guide is to help them catch the maximum level of Archaeology in Battle For Azeroth.
This archaeology guide will try to teach the basics of this profession. You won't get any real in-game benefit by taking maximum level in Archaeology, most of the items you can get don't have power in the game, such as pets, toys, and mounts. This profession is focused on fun. You don't have to have; is optional.
However, most of the armor and weapons you can get are linked to the account, which is pretty cool. Imagine your alt reaching level 91, and you can equip WarMallet from The Warchief immediately (remember, these are not inheritances, they will not be improved with your character level). It's a good idea to raise the archeology level with at least one character.
Archaeology Trainers at BFA
In Battle For Azeroth, so you can learn the new level of the profession just go learn from any instructor in the city of your faction. The profession is the same in both.
After learning the profession, you will be able to see excavation sites on your World Map. They look like little shovels. There are always 4 digging sites per continent (only 3 for The Broken Isles), and that doesn't change when logging out, restarting the server or something. You need to dig one to get a new excavation site.
The 9 continents are: Kingdoms of the East, Kalimdor, Terralem, Nortundria, Pandaria, Draenor, Partidas, Zandalar and Kul Tiraz.
The number of zones and continents you can find excavation sites depends on your skill in Archaeology and your character level. A level 77 player will be able to see 16 excavation sites, 4 on each continent (if their archaeology skill is high enough). But a level 32 player can see only 8 at most, 4 in Kalimdor, 4 in Eastern Kingdoms, and only in zones that are between levels 25 and 35.
These digging sites and the objects you get are player-specific; you don't have to worry about the competition. No one can see your drops but you.
Research and Fragments in Archaeology
When you learn this profession, you will also receive a new skill called Sondar. You can only use this ability when you are inside an excavation site. The bezel tool will appear and point in the approximate direction of a fragment, and there is a light that will indicate the distance you are from a fragment.
So how does this work in action? You access an excavation site, use your Sondar ability, and then a small tripod appears with a red, yellow, or green light. First, you check which direction it points to and then move that way. If it is red, you should walk over and run again Sondar, because you are too far away. When it's yellow, you shouldn't walk too much, and if it's green, it's probably within a 40-meter radius. Keep going in the direction where the search tool points, with practice you'll find most artifacts within 3-4 of search usage.
When you discover something, you receive specific fragments for a specific race. There are 10 races, depending on the zone and your skill in Archaeology, which you will find. Each excavation site can be searched 6 times before disappearing and a new site appears. (8 times in Draenor)
Here is a list of the races you will learn in Archaeology:
- 1-300 – East Kingdoms / Kalimdor – Fossil, Night Elf, Troll, Noon
- 300 – Outnalém: Draenei, Orc
- 375 – Nortundria: Nerubian, Vrykul
- 450 – Uldum: Tol'vir
- 525 – Pandaria: Mogu, Pandaren, Mantid
- 1-700 – Draenor: Clans Draenor, Ogre, Arakkoa
- 1-800 – Broken Isles: Demonic, High Mountain Tauren, Highborne
- 1-950 – Zandalar / Kul Strips: Drust, Zandalari
When you drop your first fragment, you start a search project. The number of fragments required for each artifact can range from 25 to 185. When you have enough fragments, you can click the small Resolve button to complete this artifact. If you have too many fragments, it will not be wasted. They will start a new project. Unfortunately, you can't control which research projects you receive, it's random, but it's based on your Archaeology skill level.
Therefore, you may have to complete all research projects with a specific race until you get what you wanted in the first place. Not to mention, when you need Troll fragments, for example, and don't get Troll digging sites for an hour, it can be annoying.
Sometimes you can get items like The Trólica Tablet, Altaneiro Scroll, Enanic Roestone, etc. when dropping a fragment at an excavation site. You can use them to speed up your search a bit. There is a slot that appears in some of the artifacts on which you can place one of them, not all artifacts, but rare artifacts usually allow you to use two or three at once. The cornerstone will increase your fragment count by 12 or 20 for cornerstones of pandaria excavation sites.
You'll receive skill points for searching digging sites and 5 skill points for any artifact you solve (15 for rare), no matter which race it's for. For example, you can climb up to 600 in the eastern realms alone.
But once you reach 600, you can only earn skill points if you go to Draenor, Broken Isles, Kul Tiraz or Zandalar and after reaching 700, you can only earn skill points in legion zones in the Broken Isles or bfa, kul tiraz, and zandalar zones.
In the last 150 points between 800-950, you'll earn only skill points in the Zandalar or Kul Tiraz zones.
If you have an epic mount and fly in areas where you can fly, it takes about 10 hours to climb Archeology to 950.
The first level of Archaeology requires the character's level 20, and allows a maximum archeology skill of 75, so each position will increase its maximum potential archeology ability. You should revisit your Archaeology trainer at these levels: 35, 50, 65, 75, 80, 85, 90, 98. If you have a higher-level character, you can learn more than one rank.
Don't forget to learn each level of Archaeology with your trainer! You have to click "Train" several times!
For example, if you already have a level 100 character, you can learn all 10 rows of Archaeology the first time you visit your trainer.
