Television intros aside, this week I'd like to talk about a very fun, and rather new profession called Archaeology. Alright, so the *fun* aspect may be completely subjective with this rather grindy pass time but regardless, this particular profession has some pretty neat objects for you hoarders to obtain.

Archaeology takes time, patience, and a little bit of luck. This whole process of digging and collecting can be helped along though by a little addon called Archy, which is conveniently shown in my friend's UI above. If you're looking for guides and updates for this particular profession, check out WoW Dig Site. They definitely have you covered on all of your Archaeology needs.
There are many, many useless things that you can collect with Archaeology, most of which are random greys that seem to vendor quite well. Since there is such an immense number of grey items, I will refrain from listing them all here. Instead I will toss a link for each sub heading so that you may browse those items at your leisure over on Wowhead. I shall however list all of the blue/epic quality items currently available. Onwards to the listing of items!
