    16/20 Is where I felt like I started to hit a wall in terms of frequently getting a pristine though I suppose it is all chance. After reading forums I feel very fortunate to have had some 20 achievements left when I got the title because I keep reading these posts about people that are 20+ in each and still missing 2 - 4 pristines. After I got my title I went back and finished a few 20s though it might be equally annoying because when I was down to just need to collect 20 of the pandaren type and I had to keep skipping Mogu digs, or do them just to create a new dig and hope it was Pandaren.

    Tips

    * Any challenge mode you've beaten in Gold rewards you a teleport path to its location you can use to move around the map quicker, this is a shared 8hr cooldown between all dungeon locations, but still useful for 1 quick easy teleport.

    *Use your hearthstone! Personally I set mine to Shrine of Seven Stars for convenience because this seems to be the most centralized location relative to archaelogy digsites.

    *Stock up on those lodestones that teleport you to a random digsite. You can purchase them for 1 crated artifact at the turn-in location, you can only carry 20 maximum but they are nice to have for a quicker grind.

    * Also buy a few maps that randomize digsites. These also cost 1 crated artifact. I can't recommend these as much because they remove 1 digsite as well and sometimes the new dig site is in a crappy spot. But if you have Dungeon Challenge Teleport/Lodestone/Hearthstone all on cooldown and all your digsites are far away this is when I would use it.

    *As with any grind, find some good music/podcasts/videos, something to keep you occupied as this is a fairly lengthy grind.

    Just started this.. got 7/20 in my first few hours, thought it was going rather easy compared to these reports. But I suppose when I get above 15 or so, the RNG will kill me.

    Over 200 solves (after I got 19/20) for the last one and still haven't got it. RNG sucks.

    Been working towards the Relic Hunter, myself. Much less painful, indeed.

    So wait....You can just do spam archeology in pandaria until you get this done, and while doing these ~600+ solves, you can turn them all in for tolvir ? Or you can't ?

    You can turn them all in for Tol'vir - but it sounds nicer on paper than it is in reality (all I got from those 700-800 solves converted into Tol'vir fragments were a few thousand gold, and none of the two rares that I'm still missing from that bunch popped up. Damn that staff and that sword!)
