I'm in favor of most of this, and have a suggestion as well: Going with the idea of the Reliquary or the Explores League, let us choose which faction to side with, but not quite in an 'Aldor vs. Scryer' sense. For instance, let the reliquary allow turn-ins of artifacts for a gold profit somewhat higher than that of normal vendors, and the prices scale UP as you gain reputation. For each turn-in, the rep goes up 250, and the explorer's league rep goes down 200, and vice-avers. Meanwhile, the Explorer's league has a more 'It belongs in a museum' mentality, and offer a reduced gold reward, but also offer a bag that can contain fragments, or perhaps some set pieces like night elf scrolls or troll tablets. As you gain reputation, they award gold closer to the vendor price, and the bag gets more impressively stuffed, giving a good incentive. Both factions would have vendors that allow you to trade fragments of one race for fragments of another, and both would have faction-unique rewards like a special pick and brush set that allows instant surveying, or a special fedora that increases fragment-collection rate. This way, it would be possible to be exalted with both factions, and give an end-goal to the archaeology nuts out there, as well as making the grind feel more like progress.
