Archaeology Leveling Change

Update: We have confirmation on this now, Digging up a find while practicing Archaeology will now continue to grant skill points past 50. (Source)

Looks like Archaeology has been hotfixed to now always give one skill-up per dig, making it much easier to level. This was NOT listed in any hotfix note, so we’re unsure whether this is intended or not.

Hotfixes June 1st

Small nerf/Hotfix, you’ll no longer benefit from (guild perk) Bountiful Bags for your keystones.

Archaeology / May 20-June 1

  • The Bountiful Bags guild perk should no longer sometimes incorrectly reward Archaeologists with multiple keystones from dig sites. (Source)

May 2nd Hotfix (Minor)

If you noticed, while enjoying Patch 4.1, that the new Artifacts were not giving skill-ups, well Blizz hot-fixed that issue in last night’s round of patching. Most people going for the rares probably did not notice this since you guys are most likely maxed already.

  • The new rare Archaeology items should now correctly grant skill-ups when crafted.

Hotfixes Dec. 27 – Vashj’ir Removed

Are you tired of going all the way out to Vashj’ir for those pesky Night Elf dig sites?

Blizzard has removed Vashj’ir from your Dig Site table, you’ll no longer have to survey that zone again.

Vashj’ir dig sites no longer unlock for players. They felt too punishing without additional benefits compared to low-level sites, and were much more difficult to obtain artifacts in due to the way Vashj’ir navigation works.  Source



Hotfixes for Dec. 21st – Triple Skill Rares

Hotfix: For those still leveling Archaeology, you’ll now be given triple skill gains for making Rare Artifacts.

Rare Archaeology finds should now grant triple skill gains.  Source

Dec 20th Hotfixes

Cataclysm Hotfixes – Updated Dec. 20

The search radius to find an Archaeology node from the Archaeology ability Survey has been increased. This will result in fewer searches needed while in the “green” range of surveying.


Update: It seems that they made it so that nodes (fragments) can be discovered at a larger range.  It used to be the would always spawn within looting range.  Now they can be discovered a little farther away meaning fewer repeat green surveys.
