Patch 4.0.6 Changes Overview

Patch 4.0.6 should be live when realms come up (or restart) this Tuesday!

Update: Patch 4.0.6 Official Notes are live Source

What do you need to know about this patch relating to Archaeology?

  • You’re now only guaranteed a skillup until 50 (instead of 100) from gathering fragments when in the first stage of Archaeology. After 50 you’ll need to solve artifacts to skill up.
  • There is now a 200 (hard cap) limit on how many Fragments (per race) you can have at a time. So there is no reason to save fragments past the 200 limit unless you don’t need/want them anymore.
  • Common artifacts have had there sell values adjusted, some are worth much gold now, when sold.
  • Survey now has a 3 second cooldown (instead of 5 seconds). Tooltip Link

UI Previews Fragments/Projects

The User Interface is getting some love with updates to the journal summary page display along with a “Ready” Flash beside race icons for current projects.
However people using an addon (like Archy!) have this functionality and convenience but it’s nice to have a non-addon choice.

4.0.6 Professions (Source)

  • Archaeology fragments now have a hard cap of 200 per race. Players will not be able to collect additional fragments until they complete artifacts to take them down below 200 fragments. Players with more than 200 fragments will not lose additional fragments in 4.0.6, but in a future patch we may remove any fragments above 200.
  • Archaeology finds now grant a guaranteed skill point up to 50 skill, and then no longer grant skill gains, as opposed to granting up to 100 skill very slowly.
  • The sell value of all common artifacts has been doubled, while a small subset of common artifacts have had their sell value increased far beyond that.

4.0.6 User Interface

  • There are now number displays on the summary page and dropdown menu.
  • Ready Flash has been added to the race icons.

Update #3 – Patch 4.0.6 PTR Notes

Public Test Realm Patch 4.0.6 Notes (Updated Jan. 14, 8:40 PM PST)

Looks like new Archaeologists will start solving earlier, at skill 50 you’ll now need to solve to gain skills (used to be 100). Also common artifacts get a boost in sell values (to npcs).

The new changes below go along with the fragment limit and UI changes
and the Survey Cooldown and BoA changes.

Latest from Patch 4.0.6 (PTR Build 13482)

More on Archaeology has been updated on the PTR! (Survey 3 Second CD)

The new information relates to older (below lvl 85) BoA gear which now can be used 9 level early then previously allowed. (Such as 51 instead of 60.) We also have a decrease in Survey cooldown to 3 seconds! This change will surely up the appeal of such items for many players.

The changes below go along with the Archaeology fragment limit and UI changes.

Archaeology (Source)

  • Survey now has a 3 sec cooldown, down from 5 sec. Wowhead
  • Queen Azshara’s Dressing Gown now requires Level 51, down from 60. Wowhead
  • Headdress of the First Shaman now requires Level 61, down from 70. Wowhead
  • Nifflevar Bearded Axe now requires Level 71, down from 80. Wowhead

PTR Patch Notes (4.0.6)

With the new patches being tested on the PTR comes new Archaeology news.

It looks like we will have a limit how many Fragments are kept at a given time. Some call this a nerf but something was bound to change due to the thousands of fragments many players are accumulating as they farm away for a certain race. This could potentially allow more items (rares) to be added to current Races without Archaeologists having a massive (unfair) stock pile of fragments to simply find the new items with like the image below. This change can be debated either way but at least Devs acknowledge just how many (crazy amounts of) fragments are being Surveyed.

Along with the fragment change, the User Interface is getting some love with updates to the (default) journal summary page display along with a “Ready” icon for projects. However people using an addon (like Archy!) already have this functionality and convenience.
