WOW Rewards for Archaeology
Disguises and Fun Items
Several items obtained from archaeology briefly turn your character into something else, cause a striking visual effect or transport you elsewhere with World of Warcraft gold. For example , the Bones of Transformation turn you into a naga for 20 seconds, while the Druid and Priest Statue Set will cause a bright green beam of light to appear over your character. The final Relic of Argus transports your character to a random location, while the Highborne Soul Mirror causes a ghostly version of your character to appear in front of you.
Vial of the Sands Recipe
Archaeology is the only way to obtain the rare alchemy recipe for the Vial of the Sands, a special mount that allows your character to turn into a dragon and carry a friend. To obtain this recipe, complete archaeology projects from tol’vir fragments. The recipe can rarely be found inside a Canopic Jar, a typical tol’vir project.
Achievements and Titles
Several archaeology achievements exist, linked to either your skill in archaeology, specific projects or the amount of common and rare projects you have completed. These achievement reward a total of 190 achievement points. Additionally , three of the achievements grant your character an additional title. Completing one rare project rewards the title “Assistant Professor”, completing 10 rewards the title “Associate Professor” and completing 20 rewards the title “Professor”.
Characters who have increased their archaeology skill in order to 525 can summon an additional boss in the Zul’Gurub five-player dungeon. Chosen at random each time from four possible companies, Gri’lek, Hazza’rah, Renataki and Wushoolay, this boss drops several epic items that can’t be obtained any other way. In addition, characters who have reached skill 425 or beyond can use archaeology keystones while in dungeons to provide the entire group with a buff.
