Addon Spotlight: Digging up some Archaeology addons

Addon Spotlight Digging up some Archaeology Addons
Archaeology has been subject to some considerable improvements in Mists of Pandaria. For starters, you now get six digs at any one dig site, meaning artifacts complete faster, and leveling the profession is therefore faster. I've also heard of various other improvements that have been applied to Archaeology in Pandaria, but, alas, I have no Archaeologist characters with a sufficient level to do any Archaeology in the new continent.

A lot of players have messaged me asking about Archaeology addons, thanks for your emails as ever. Chief among the addon requests are the following:
  • A way to track dig sites and suggest progress between them
  • A way to track progress on artifacts by race
  • A way to track each artifact's fragments
  • A way to see if artifacts can be completed with keystones
  • A way to see which artifacts are still out there, undiscovered or incomplete
  • An addon to replace Biasha's Archaeology Helper
I'm going to do my best to deal with all those queries in this week's column.

Addon Spotlight: Archaeology made easy

Each week, WoW Insider brings you a fresh look at reader-submitted UIs as well as Addon Spotlight, which focuses on the backbone of the WoW gameplay experience: the user interface. Everything from bags to bars, buttons to DPS meters and beyond -- your addons folder will never be the same.

Now that archaeology has been buffed to a certain degree with new tol'vir digsites and a lower cooldown on Survey, it's time to get a little addon-serious about the secondary profession. A few weeks back, I talked about one archaeology addon that took some of the interface away for me, because it was a three-click pain in the butt to get to the artifact counter. Now, with the recent changes, that isn't the case. In that time, however, loads of new tools have come to the forefront of the archaeology community. Read on for archaeology made easy.
