Normally I try not to post about roadblocks I run into during the Beta. Since I know things are going to be broken, it's not a shock when I get bitten. Plus, I don't particularly enjoy playing the blame/flame game as it doesn't tend to be very productive. However, I wanted to let you guys know that I've hit a problem with Archaeology for a couple of reasons. First... it was working previously. And second, I'm not sure what else to tackle since so many other professions are looking sketchy in their current form. I know some folks on the Beta have managed to cap things like Inscription and Leatherworking. But there are enough oddities in the progression of most that I'm hesitant to jump on the bandwagon. I'm hoping to hold out for a release date announcement and maybe plan around that.
While I can't share final details about Archaeology yet, I can share the little booger that stopped me in my tracks. I think it could be an interesting item once it's working: Pristine Mogu Coin. While collecting Mogu fragments I created a couple of artifacts and then started getting these. The kicker is that right now I don't get any skill points when I make one. And I've made about five in a row, so I feel like I'm wasting my fragments at this point. I can see that there are about a dozen Mogu artifacts in Wowhead but perhaps they aren't tied into the system just yet. Or my luck is horrible. Who knows? Either way, I think I'll hold off until the next build and see where we are.
So under the circumstances maybe I should field suggestions from the readers. Is there anything you'd like to know more about that doesn't involve leveling one of the professions? If so please share it in the Comment area and I'll check it out for you :)
