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.

    Sadly no. I never liked their mentality of "If you want more Lore Buy a book".
    If you want fun stop doing archaeology or go complain on the official forums. There's nothing anyone here can do about it.

    Considering the rarity of Tol'vir sites in comparison with all other sites those commons should be worth a lot more. Hopefully new artifacts will be uncovered with this patch too

    ahhh, the first person to complain! There's always at least one! Dude, really, a lot of people have lost out on gold because of this change coming late, but guess what? The next time you find one of those empress zoe grays you get 1k gold instead of 10 gold. Just because you're kicking yourself knowing how much gold you could have made, doesn't mean it's a horrible change.

    You all need to chill out! So what! They decided to increase values on crap. Oh boo-hoo!! The nature of the game is change, so I recommend stop whining and move on. Gold is easy to come by. And yes, I too have vendored or deleted half of these as well as most, but I'm not crying about something that really doesn't effect my game play anyway. If that were true, then I want a return on my Master or Epic flying costs before they nerfed those prices. Or even the original cost of dual-spec before that was nerfed to the ground. Whatever, doesn't matter to me, I'll keep farming for the Sword or trinket till I get them or blizz adds new digs.

    BUFF SHAMANS... they dps as much as tanks and barely heal more than shadow priests... cant say it is player skill when these numbers come from some of the top raiders in the world (Method)... As for Paragons world first kill... they didn't even bother to bring a Shaman into the raid... comon!!!!!

    The tool tip price on a lot of the items is quite a bit higher than the new price listed is this list out of date?
    On a side note thanks to all the trolls who argued, QQ'd or just felt like sharing that's 20 mins I'll never get back wading through your inane prattle.

    i hate arch but i still do it

    Further to Cripplefight's post above, the tooltip price differs entirely from the current or projected 4.0.6 price (as listed).

    Can anyone advise which price is correct? If the tooltip price is accurate, you'll want to hold off on vendoring just about all the artifacts, as opposed to just a handful.

    the tooltips are correct, see this (more recent) newspost:

    wait, so for an example the grey ring, you sell it to vendor and get 1k gold? :O
