An archaeologist digging up an artifact

Service archaeologist merchant
Archaeology is a feature that allows archaeologists to dig up, identify, and trade in ancient artifacts for archaeology tokens. An Archaeology Pickaxe and the Identification Tool Set are necessary to cultivate and examine artifacts.

As ruled by the Archaeology Association, in order to protect the historical ruins, archaeologists can only dig up 100 times per day. This limit resets at midnight Eastern Standard Time. An Archaeologist's Honor buff is provided to track the number of times archaeologists have dug up and identified an item.

Dig sitesEdit

Dig site

Yellow sparkles indicate an artifact is found underneath.

Dig sites are located around the vicinity of an Archaeologist Merchant. Each map contains at most three dig sites, with each area only available on certain days.

Ancient artifacts

On open dig sites, the area will have certain spots radiating yellow sparkles on the ground. An artifact can be dug up on these spots when using the pickaxe. Once the artifact is dug up, the archaeologist can identify it by choosing one of the three available tools that correspond to the color of the glow.

Archaeology interfaceEdit

Archaeology interface

The Identification Tool Set is necessary to identify artifacts that have been dug up. Each artifact will radiate a different colored glow: yellow, red, or blue. Depending on the color of the glow, the corresponding color of the tool can be used to identify the item correctly. Incorrectly identifying the artifact will result in a lower quality item.

To begin identification, the player can right-click on the artifact to open up the archaeology interface. Once open, the player can open the interface to reveal three different tools to identify the artifact.
