Archaeology in 4.0.6 - Grey items changes
If you've been going through the 4.0.6 Patch Notes you probably saw the following line.

That change didn't seem important at first but it's actually more significant than you'd think for people who spend a lot of time hunting for artefacts.

Some of the grey/junk items you get from archaeology had their price considerably increased (up to 1000 gold) and if you have them in your bags it's probably a very good idea to wait for the patch before you sell them ... I'm sure you'd hate to lose 1000 gold (or more!) because of that, right?

As far as I know this change hasn't been hotfixed on live servers and you'll have to wait for the patch.

    Incoming 2000000 tickets with people wanting their Word Of Empress Zoe's restored that they vendored 1-2 days ago.

    Really wish I hadn't vendored that Word of Empress Zoe!!!!

    This makes me a saaad panda... I spent so many hours leveling Archaeology on my mage and sold so much of this stuff without earning much on it... And now this?! I won't QQ too much, as it is a nice buff, but I'd like it a lot more if it came along with the release.

    I would like to know if there are any changes to archaeology beside the change of the 200fragment cap. are there digsites still spawning when reaching the cap or when all artefakts were solved of this races?

    it su**s to fly to and dig digsites of races you already have all artefacts. If I want to make gold I don't go for archaeology (and these "double" amounts dont change anything at this) - that's for lore or to get achievements and so on.

    As you can see from Method video, that mage had insane amount of mana regen, I would think it's some raid-wide mana regen buff? And of course, arcane is still the best DPS spec for us mages, we just can't use it because of mana costs... So if mana is not a problem (again it seems like it isn't from the video), arcane is obvious choice...

    FUUUUUUUUUUU- I had 2 of the 'word of empress zoe'!
  1. gutnbrg's Avatar
    wow the buttraping never ends, so the people that already vendored those commons just get nothing? Fcking stupid devs make the worst decisions ever, how about bringing back the amani warbear and black proto drake to compensate for yet another shafting up my arse by this damn game.

    Couldn't agree with this anymore, i'm pissed. So retarded, i must have farmed atleast 10+ of those while trying to get zin'rokh. (Too many dwarfes, need moAR trolls!)

    Lol at dark legacy, I hate those walls when flying!

    Well.... knowing I could have made around 10k gold with saving all my Archeology trash sure made my day... not.

    Oh well, shit happens

    i really hope they don't put that hard cap ( i mean i have 4k night elf and 2k fossil fragments and i already discovered all from those 2 races ... this is bull crap ... i worked for those thing why are they stealing my work. I don't remember them deleting or putting a hard cap on the amount of Elementium ore you could own when they announced that the new epic gems could be prospected from that ...
    Also ... incoming nerf to that raid buff ...

    Nice nice, that gold certainly wont hurt for me.

    BUt what about the datamined crates?
    They seem to be items you can fish. Anyone found them yet?
  1. Linry's Avatar
    wow 1000g? that's crazy, looks like ill have to farm dwarfs now. :P

    Easy answer. It's yet another instance of Blizzard screwing over those people that put time and effort into something right away. I have vendored multiple of those soon-to-be-expensive items in the past, and all I got was a handful of gold for ages of farming, and no useful epics whatsoever. Now, all people who waited will get hundreds or thousands of gold for doing exactly the same thing. Thank you, Blizzard...
  1. Beefjerky's Avatar
    Its not like they will refund anything. I spent 6k gold on dualspec when the price was 1k, now its down to 10g.. Just smile and wave, smile and wave.
  1. Stormdash's Avatar
    Cool, I think I've only vendored....3 or 4 of that Word of Empress Zoe.
  1. keymil's Avatar
    People people, stop complaining. I myself created 6 Words of empress zoe and the only I did when saw the changes was giggle. This crap appears everytime! Change to the cost of dual spec - "GIMME BACK MY MONEH", change to the cost of riding skills - "I WANT MY MONEH BACK!!". Seriously, if you are SO horrified about losing some money, don't do ANYTHING now and wait one year, who knows, maybe that helmet from trash in Utgarde will be worth 2k gold one day.

    Glad about the changes, though. Finally "artifacts" have the real feel of artifacts, and not some garbage.
