More Archaeology woes...

This profession is so slow to grind out. Coupled with the fact that to get the items that you want, you have to survey areas that do not give you skill. I'm up to the 900s but it is so slow after that; especially since the areas that give you a skill change weekly in BFA. So, you are stuck with one race for an entire week. It would be nice if that changed with dailies.

On the plus side, the Tol'vir Hierroglyphics that you can get from trading Restored Artifacts are currently selling for 6k each.

Here are the items you can get from Archaeology.

Time Gated Reputation Rant

I have been playing this game since the very beginning. I have a max level character for almost each class for Horde and Alliance - multiple Druids, Hunters, and Priests for some reason. I have many rare toys and transmogs that take a considerable about of grinding. I can do many mindless tasks that take days to complete (max Fishing and Arch). But for whatever reason, I can't seem to grasp the idea of reputation-based time gating that Blizzard insists on implementing for some quests and achievements (and now game progression). I am still missing out on tons of Dragon Flight content because I refuse to do the daily quests to raise the base Dragon Isle Renown. There's something about doing 3 quests per week for 9 months to continue the story that just makes me angry. Regular story progression should grant enough reputation to continue. I shouldn't have to wait 6 months while I do some mindless tasks over and over again just to continue with the story line. I already paid for the expansion, now I have to pay for 6 months of the game to finish the game!?

I play just about every day but very casually. I don't do Mythics and maintain a very solo lifestyle. No guild membership for many years. Here are my Dragon Isles Renown Max levels.

10; faction=Dream Wardens
11; faction=Iskaara Tuskarr
9; faction=Loamm Niffen
6; faction=Maruuk Centaur
5; faction=Dragonscale Expedition
Learned; faction=Azerothian Archives (had to get the transmogs)
20; faction=Valdrakken Accord (boosted char gave me this)
Neutral; faction=Artisan's Consortium (not a crafter)
Empty; faction=Cobalt Assembly (not even sure what this is for)
Acquaintance; faction=Sabellian
Acquaintance; faction=Wrathion
Rift-Mender; faction=Soridormi (transmogs)
Aspirational; faction=Glimmerogg Racer
Exalted; faction=Winterpelt Furbolg (I've always loved the Furbolgs)

Noble Transmog Woes

 

Rainbow hijinks were on par for the last few minutes of the Noble Garden holiday. I managed to get all of the drops aside from the new dress. Which is fine, since I rarely wear dresses on my male characters anyway.
