has anyone every deleted an archaeloogy boa and gotten it to come up a second time?
I'm pretty sure it doesn't work that way, it's recorded as completed in the Arch UI, deleting it isn't going to make that disappear from the screen.
Thank you for your responses.
I'd imagine once you make a rare, it flags you server side so it doesn't appear twice. I'm not sure deleting it would undo this; I'd imagine the flag would be from the creation, not from say holding the item.
It's pretty annoying to test. If you delete the rare, how'd you know whether you're not getting the rare the 2nd time because you can't or because RNG hates you? It'd need GM confirmation, which apparently they're not wanting to divulge.
Good one. yeh, the website is devoted to archaeology information. we get asked questions like this all the time. i sent in a ticket and they told me they couldnt answer the question, or give out hints about drop rates and I should ask the community. We're working to know all we can about archaeology.
All comments are my own personal views & opinions.
Simply put if you have an item, no you cannot get it a 2nd time on that character. They can restore an item to a character if it was truly deleted by accident.

Just delete the scarab pendant(BoA) has a high drop rate so should be figured out fast enough..
If you want a new one just do like 10 digs on an alt
but yea, on topic, i think as it's a rare artifact, once it's completed it wont drop again, even if deleted. you'd have to level archaeology on another toon to be able to get it again.
you could theoretically have multiple BoA's from multiple toons with maxed out arch, but getting the same BoA to drop twice on the same toon wont happen, it would've been flagged as complete and removed from the loot table for that race, on whichever toon you solved it on.
I believe a rare can only be solved once.
Otherwise it would need to keep track of the location of each completed rare from any given character, taking into account simply mailing or even character transfer.
That just sounds tedious.
I've been working on testing this, I started a new alt, and each of the blue rares i've deleted them. I don't think it is possible and i don't want to waste too much time to prove it.
I deleted a bunch of my rares on my main, and have done alot of solves after deletion. I think its safe to say the answer is no.
