Archaeology

General Discussion
Can someone please tell me why Archaeology is more of a waste of time than it was in Cata?

There is 2-3 usable items. An int off-hand and a agi polearm.

Really?
the trinket is nice also
Archeology is about exploration, not epics.
At least I never have to step foot in a Night Elf digsite ever again.

Exploring what?
You seem to have completely missed that you can use it to get artifacts from other races. oh well.
I totally agree with you. I've already found the off hand and trinket. Now I only have 2 more rares to look forward to? MoP's only been out for a week and a half, Blizz ...

true, I have completed 3 old world rares without leaving MOP land. Archy is much more attractive then ever now.

If I really cared for that...

1. I'd quit the game because the culture of the game sucks;
2. Who cares?
3. What's the point of doing it?
4. If I cared about the lore I'd go play on Moon Guard.

Archaeology, in MOP, seems to be about getting that blue bug mount from cata.

They just throw in some other fluff things, while you are on the way to getting more tol'vr fragments. Or that is how I understand it.

Yep, that. Finally get the bug mount, finally get Zinc-whatever (soley for transmog, at this point.)

It's about mini pets & vanity items.
dear blizz,

MORE FUN VANITY ITEMS PLEASE!!!

Its been only a week since mists was released and I have already completed all MoP rare archaeology finds. I am so disappointed! The "repeatedly find five common artifacts" 10 point achievements are not enough motivation to keep having fun with arch.

I wish there were more fun/useful rares to find--!

Sincerely,
a MoP archaeologist and raider.

I got both at level 86. Definitely not a waste! :D
I think Blizzard is a bit disappointed with themselves over archaeology, to be honest.
