    Archaeology turnin change?

    Would love some independent verification on this. Might be chance, but...

    I turned in artifacts today and got a Pristine artifact. (Two in a row, yay!)

    However, when I used the crates to buy Tol'vir artifacts, an interesting thing happened. All three crates contained not only Tol'vir fragments, but a Tol'vir Heiroglyphic as well. I've probably turned in 100 of these crates to date and never seen a single item like that.

    Is this an existing behavior that I just got wild luck streaks on, or is this an undocumented change?

    Damn you, just wanted to get to bed. Now I gotta log back on and try that...

    Edit: Just dug up a few quick fragments and had 3 crates without any Hieroglyphics...

    Well, sorry to disrupt your sleep

    Has everyone else been getting quest items all along, then? Or is it a new thing, but not 100%?

    The pristine ones? I got a couple before patch.

    I also never saw keystones in the crates, but I turned in way less than 100.

    Pristine is not a new thing, but keystones seems are.

    Received my first keystone yesterday and I turned in quite a few artifacts (150+) and spent them all on Tol'Vir crates. Can't tell if it's just coincidence that my first crate since the patch contained a keystone or not.

    The Pristine ones definately aren't anything new, they are just kind of rare. But if you did a decent amount of Archaeology, you'll find quite a few. Getting pristines for all is a bit more difficult...

    So it seems like keystones may be a new addition to the purchased crates in patch 5.1, just not at 100% drop rate.

    Cool!

    I've seen keystones prior to the patch, they're just not very common.
