It seems that the Dark Phoenix mount is fairly popular these days, here is a short video of how the model looks. As a reminder, the Dark Phoenix will be rewarded through the new Guild Achievement/Rewards system, you will have to unlock it via a Guild Achievement, have enough reputation with your guild to buy it, and of course, enough gold.
There isn't much known about Archaeology at this point but a couple of spells and some extra information have been added to the game files. Even if Path of the Titans is gone it looks like the main idea behind Archaeology remains the same and you will have to hunt for artifacts throughout the world.
The only thing we know about Archaeology rewards is from the Press Tour 2 months ago, rewards are known to be "cosmetic only" like pets, or toys, but a few of them will have actual effects. We really don't know much more but a few people speculated that the Skeletal Raptor Mount and Skeletal Raptor Pet might be Archaeology rewards. It would make sense, with the "Fossil" research branch in the game files. (But again, this is pure speculation at this point)
It seems that the profession includes multiple research branches:
- Night Elf
The known research sites are:
- Stone Cairn Dig Site (Elwynn Forest)
- Ironband's Excavation Site (Loch Modan)
- Ironbeard's Tomb (Wetlands)
- Whelgar's Excavation Site (Wetlands)
- Greenwarden's Fossil Bank (Wetlands)
- Circle of Inner Binding (Arathi Highlands)
- Circle of West Binding (Arathi Highlands)
- Circle of East Binding (Arathi Highlands)
- Circle of Outer Binding (Arathi Highlands)
- Witherbark Dig Site (Arathi Highlands)
- Thandol Span (Arathi Highlands/Wetlands)
- Dun Garok Dig Site (Hillsbrad Foothills)
- Shindra'Alor Dig Site (Hinterlands)
- Altar of Zul Dig Site (Hinterlands)
- Jintha'Alor Lower City Dig Site (Hinterlands)
- Jintha'Alor Upper City Dig Site (Hinterlands)
- Agol'watha Dig Site (Hinterlands)
It looks like only the Dwarf branch of archeology is implemented for the moment, and it's most likely not complete.
These spells are part of the Archaeology profession.
|Bone Gaming Dice
||30 100||Dwarves love gold and dwarves love drinking, so gaming seemed like a natural fit for both. These dice appear to have been carved from sheep bones.
|Ceramic Funeral Urn
||30 100||Some dwarves sealed their deceased in tombs. Clans that had more interaction with the Scourge tended to burn their dead.
|Silver Drinking Cup
||30 100||If there's one thing dwarves love, it's drinking. And fighting. Two things.
This cup may have belonged to a minor noble or wealthy merchant. Any gems have long since been lost or stolen.
|Silver Neck Torc
||30 100||Dwarves are famous metalsmiths. While they produce many implements of war, they are adept at working with softer metals as well.
||30 100||Gryphons have long been allies of the Wildhammer dwarves, who brought their noble steeds to the rest of the Alliance.
|Worn Hunting Knife
||30 100||Some dwarves spend most of their lives underground, but others welcome a chance to step out into the sunlight to add a bit of meat to their diet.
|1 1||Allows an archaeologist to find artifact fragments and complete artifacts up to a maximum potential skill of 75.
|Searching for Artifacts
|1 1||Allows an archaeologist to collect fragments and complete artifacts up to a potential skill of 75. Requires fragments from archaological dig sites or ruins.

It won't take long today.
