This guide explains the different things you can get if you’re hunting for Troll Archaeology fragments. Whether it’s to get all the vanity items or equipment, it doesn’t matter. What it is is a daunting task all by itself, however, it can have a relaxing effect if you’re doing something in the background.
If you’re feeling too frustrated with getting to every dig site, don’t forget to do some other things while you’re at it! Farming certain mobs, gathering mats for professions, fishing, etc.
Above all else, don’t bore yourself!
What zones have Troll Archaeology fragments?
The zones listed below provide links to my “Zone Overview” posts. So if you want to look at what a zone has to offer you fully, go ahead and check out the links. They’ll have maps to a variety of things and provide useful information.
How do I farm Troll Archaeology fragments?
I’ll be stating the same information below in every Archaeology farming post, so if you’d like to read it, click away. Otherwise, continue on!
Archaeology will always be a somewhat boring task, and doing it without any kind of help can also be a tedious, daunting, and even frustrating. But hey, some people do, because the alternative is relying on something else that may work one day, then not the next.
Whichever way you like to do it, we came up with a few decent ones ourselves.
Don’t use any addons
- Pro: You won’t have to rely on addons staying up to date and find one suddenly becoming out of date and no longer useful.
- Con: You’ll have to constantly look at your map to make sure you’re going in the right direction.
- Pro: Minimalistic setup in keeping up with your Archaeological finds and where the closest ones are.
- Con: You’re relying on an addon to stay up to date.
- Con: Best used in combination with TomTom.
What items can I get from Troll Archaeology?
While digging, you’ll either find nothing, in which case you’re too far from the fragment in question, or you’ll find a Troll Tablet keystone.
These specific keystones are good for only the troll side of archaeology, however. And yes, you can sell them on the Auction House if there’s profit to be made on them. It’s best to sell them if you’ve got time do a lot of digging already, or if you’ve already managed to net all of the items you can obtain from the artifacts in question.
As with every archaeological dig, you’ll get specific artifacts to completely uncover. Once you’ve uncovered one, you’ll get a new one. Some of them are junk, but others are the good kind.
If an artifact has a keystone slot, you can use them to boost the artifact to completion, just try not to waste them. A single Troll Tablet is equivalent to 12 Troll Archaeological fragments.
