    some of you are really lucky, i finished mine after 1201 solves, i finished all 20 collector achies after like 700 solves and was 19/20 pristine, i still missed bronze mirror. Took me another 500 to get it and like 53 mirros. (I still have like 100+ mogu runestones from that). Also what made me more frustrated was that i was at 18995 points and i wanted to hop over 19k by finishing this one, didnt happen (got something else meanwhile)

    Finished my last pristine 10 days after I finished all of the collect 20's. 612 total solves in the end.

    Wow...I didn't even know there was a archeology title for MoP. Basically stopped after i got all the are items for the Panda and Mogu races. Guess I got to start grinding archeology again.

    Got about 350 solves in total (Mogu/Pandaren), and I've got everything except 2 Pristines and 20 Gameboards.

    Sort of a necro... but as I'm approaching my 13th pristine, I've solved almost 70 artifacts between the 12th one... is this actually normal at this progression into the achievement?

    Yes. When you have 1-3 left you will want to hurt your character If you are not having insane RNG luck

    Yeah tell me about it can't get Bronze Mirror or Branding Iron to save my life. I cringe anytime I finish one knowing that it won't happen. I flew up to 16/20 and now it has been a horrible three days getting to 18/20.

    Apothecary tins will probably kill my will to play soon. Every pristine procced within 20 solves and these refuse to neither show up nor proc as pristine ... 30 solves of it already and still not pristine. Disgusting. Worst thing is that pandaria digs hardly ever spawn and the pottery shards go for 250 gold there while mogu seem to go for like 60 or so ... Approaching 700 solves.

    edit: haha, ironically just as I posted this, my next tin turned out pristine. 694 solves it was ...

    Some of the high number of solves people are posting in places is starting to scare me lol I just added mine up 348 solves with 18/20 done. I think I've been lucky. Knowing how things go for me I will triple that amount on the last one I bet

    edit: Just got the Mirror c'mon you stupid Branding Iron! Just hit 400 solves myself

    I got mine done about two weeks ago and it took 633 solves total to finish.

    but wait....there's more!!!

    Who else is extremely excited about 8 more of these being added to the new island in 5.2????

    You can buy an item to only proc Mantid sites, making half the pain of this go away.

    This by far was the most painful achievement farm to date, took over 60 walking cane solves for me to get my final pristine, around 1100 solves.

    Buy for what? Gold or completed artifacts? Cause if its the latter, its still going to suck balls

    Probably gold, considering you need exalted with Lorewalkers, establishing it as a reputation reward.

    At 14 pristines, and 407 solves right now.

    I think I'm extremely lucky. I'm not even trying to get this title and I'm 14/20

    I'm just the contrary, from 12 to 13 it took me nearly 150-200 solves, I lost count near the end.

    Thanks for the link, and I hope you're right, but the map and teleport items currently in game also require exalted and cost completed artifacts. I have a suspicion it'll be one artifact to buy the item, and then it'll make your next digsite mantid, then you have to use another one. That'd be pretty awful but in line with the existing items. If that's the case I'll probably keep my artifacts and spend them towards Tol'vir fragments and pray for the mount.
