    It would be great if Blizz made Arch as learned to 450 on all new chars.

    I mean, If you have bothered to level it once (to 600) in the first place.

    I've switched mains and some of the new (MOP) achievements require I have to go dig in Pandaria.

    It's great that I had to level this from zero to hero once, I have tried doing it again, even with the buffs it is incredibly time consuming/boring.

    Or even like they have implemented the '100% rep buff' commendations, something similar -account wide- would be wonderful for Arch.

    Do I stand in a field alone (with a shovel) on this?

    Agreed. Now with the advent of account wide mounts and pets, re-leveling it on other characters is even dumber.
    Hey, remember when I dropped my keys and you thought the phone was ringing?

    Why stop at just Arch? Why not do it for all professions? Once you have leveled 2 main professions to 600, why not make it to where all new characters automatically start out at 450 once they choose whatever professions they desire? See where this is going? It isn't something that will ever see the light of day since professions are, and have always been, on a per character basis.
    when all else fails, read the STICKIES.

    So were mounts, and titles up until about a year ago.

    I wouldn't mind secondary professions being treated this way though.

    Aside from the actual archaeology achievements, which ones require you to dig around in Pandaria?
    The only thing I know of is one of the extra Cloud Serpent dailies

    And they already buffed Archaeology quite a bit; having 6 digs per digsite, more fragments per dig and 1 Archaeology level per dig. (which is no longer stops at 100)
    In my opinion, it's fine as it is, and doesn't take as much effort as it used to.

    Pretty much all other professions can be levelled via Gold.

    Arch serves no purpose, it doesn't bring any new mats to the market to help others (i.e. such as fishing)

    It's a time sink, plain and simple. Each dig also gives experience nearly equivalent to killing a monster at your level, regardless of the level of your skill. Beyond that, what is the point in leveling it on multiple characters (outside of a personal desire for one of the rare artifacts)?
