Once they removed Path of the Titans, they should have also removed archaeology.The best thing they can do is just make it super ezmode for achievement hunters, so that it doesn't become the insane grind that fishing is. One ridiculous tertiary profession achievement grind is enough for an MMO, in my opinion. (I'm including pets and mounts in terms of the achievement hunters, so what I'm saying is make all those low percentage drops way easier to obtain.)The next best thing would be to remove it from the game completely. The unrealistic thing that I bet we all hope they would do is get Path of the Titans back in the game, and completely overhaul archaeology to match up with that system, but it doesn't seem like that will happen any time soon, if ever.

I disagree. I have all the arch achievements and I thought the timesink was not unreasonable. And i did it early in cataclysm, before it was patched to be easier. There are far harder achievements. If you don't like it, don't do it.

Man. What is with Path of the Titans that people won't LET IT DIE.It was (or would have been) boring and terrible. When the game's DEVELOPERS say something was bad and that's why it's gone, you'd think folks would take the hint and drop it.

Path of the Titans to the best of my knowledge would have basically been another tier of glyphs, and ones that would have had utility or a throughput impact.Therefore it would have been another mandatory progression, something which would have been expected of you and something you would have been judged upon.I have no doubt also that there would have been good and bad choices of the "faction" or group you chose to support or follow for the above reasons.Archaeology is entirely optional, and offers no significant benefits that would dictate that you take the profession to benefit your end-game performance.We did not need another forced grind.

I don't understand the continued interest in Path of the Titans. They abandoned it because it was going to be a reiteration of glyphs. They scrapped it and made three glyph tiers instead. Not exactly dying to see a second glyph system added.
