The big issues I have is the massive travel time. They need a archaeology mount that only flies from sight to sight at 500% speed or something. the other issue I have is that there is no benefit from higher skill levels. If I am 525 I have just as much chance of getting junk as the person with 1 skill in it. As you level up your skill you should have less of a chance at finding worthless items. Or at least have the amount of things you find go up as your skill goes up. It also seems they have given up on it, as the last 2 patches have had no new items, and the newest 5 mans have no archaeology buff turn ins like all the other 5 mans.

- "It also seems they have given up on it, as the last 2 patches have had no new items, and the newest 5 mans have no archaeology buff turn ins like all the other 5 mans."I don't think it's that they've given up on it so much as they're probably planning a heavy revamp for MoP and decided not to spend resources on making something prettier before they take it apart.

I like the arch mount idea: helps to speed you on your way from dig site to dig site.The only problem I see is how people will abuse it: leave a dig site in a particular zone in order to go there faster. That's one of the reasons alot of portals were removed: we were moving around the world to fast and to easily.

@RevynnSimply adding more artifacts at this stage while having the same horrible RNG will make it even less attractive a profession to anyone new to it.It needs less reliance on sheer dumb luck before we need to make it more of a grind.I am still 3 rares short, lvl 85 weapons which judging from experience I may not see all of pre-MoP.At which point they become useless, something I would have hoped not to happen.

I had thought there was supposed to be a teleporter, actually, that would take you from site to site, but I guess I could settle for an insanely fast mount that would take you there automatically (But only 500%? I can already do something like 492 on some of my alts, once you add in all the speed bonuses).
