So my wife has pretty much had the same problem as you. She's been grinding Archeology since day 1. Spent countless hours and hours and hours between dungeon runs...she's at 18/20 and is about ready to pull her hair out...Now go back two weeks ago when I decided to finally start doing archeology. I did some on my Shaman originally and got fed up with it quickly after getting 1 rare after getting my skill up to the 250ish range. But now I'm on my Paladin who's an alchemist and I want my mount...I start doing Archeology on a Saturday morning and within 2 hours I get 4 rares. My skill isn't even 100 yet. Sunday I get another rare already up to 5. Our guildie is about ready to pop out of my screen and kill me cause she's been grinding away and only has 2. Over the course of the roughly two week period leading up to last weekend I steadily added more and more rares. The RNG loving me...my wife thinking that arsenic would be a good additive to my food.Last Saturday our friend was over, who pretty much quit when Cata came out, and I was explaining to him my stroke of absolute luck when I solved on Night Elf Artifact for #9 and Voila! #10 is the next one to solve. My wife...seething with hate...anger...jealousy...walks over and hands me her authenticator saying "You are not solving #10 until you get me to #20 and the last two better be Tol'Vir".Sunday morning comes and I think "What the heck" so I jump on her toon, start doing archeology and within half an hour I solve a Tol'Vir she already had and the next one... The Monkey's Paw... my next 4 dig sites that pop up...all Tol'Vir and I get two of their little items to make solving go faster. I told my wife this and she gives me a "You have got to be kidding me look" and when she realizes I wasn't kidding her she says "I don't care as long as I get my 20". I haven't had to the time to go back yet to solve it and start working on finding #20.
