Scepter of Azj'Aqir
EDIT: this is "Umbridge" that posted a few posts back! (faction/name change)
Hoping they make adjustments in the future to limit grinding for items to a single archaelogist not 1)Archaelogist with a,b or c primary or secondary proffession.
Getting back to the scepter mount there is so much rng involved in the process you can be one of those fortunate souls (most ppl tend to think they will fit into this category) that acquires this mount within their first 50 solves, or you can be on the other end of the spectrum with 500+ solves and still no mount. I'd suggest not burning yourself out grinding archaeology for 5+ hours at a time on a daily basis. Here's what I did: play some music, dig in Kalimdor only if you can manage knocking off all the rares for NE and fossils you are in good shape moving forward, several addons speed up the process: gathermate2, Archy, Archaelogy Helper. Having a toon with 15 min hearth, another form of hearthing like a mage shammy etc, or an engineer with portals will speed up movement, have fastest available flying. I made archaelogy digs part of my daily thing when I logged on aiming to knock off at least 8 digsites minimum.

Well that's not true, sure it took my forever and a day, but I got every archaeology rare from every race on this toon :D
I lost hope a long time ago, I keep trying to get back into it but it's so painful. I've spent thousands of gold on hieroglyphics.
Stories of people getting it after many hundred solves is horrifying and I'm pretty sure I'm going to get stuck in that boat.
This is so loathsome. Silithid are my favorite, I would do anything to have one as a mount... but archaeology is soul-destroying.
