    [PROFESSION GUIDE] ARCHEOLOGY (DIGGING) : Road to rank 10++. Kyaa's Diary 2019

    there is tldr for this one, scroll down if lazy.

    this is not a mere guide. This is a diary, treat this as Information. it might help or ruin your casual gaming experience.

    What I want:
    -rank 10++ for profession panel and profession costume


    Estimated time before research : years.
    Finished time : rank 10 in 6 month++. (could be faster, but I am super lazy to do this)
    couldn't finish: profession costumes for archeology are very expensive )0) +I did the 2nd methos


    What I need:
    -this guide and all the reference site listed.
    -Time and Patience.
    -Archeology Pickaxe*, can be bought from any Archeology NPC.
    -Identification tool set, can be bought from any Archeology NPC.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BASIC
    Read this pinned old post about the basic.
    http://forum.aurakingdom.to/showthre...sic-Archeology

    Review Picture:


    -rank 3,6,10 for all profession require player to finish an achievement.

    important note:
    1. open Journal by Pressing the "L"button
    2. navigate to "Achievement" tab
    3. select Task from the drop-down list. (for this case : Archeology Specialist/Medal.)

    a. open Character panel by pressing the "c" button.
    b. navigate to "Adventure Medals" tab
    c. Hover over to any medal to see the requirement.

    Objective: get familiar with how Medal and Achievement works.

    -to level up in certain rank, need to dig certain things in certain maps.

    EXPERT tips and tricks.

    Based on my experience, certain map have less rare drop than others. (Flawless Primitive Tool, Star tuck Plateau Monday)
    or, certain combination of color and texture (example: red treasure chest = golden item)

    However, who knows what happen, it can be just pure luck (RNG).

    Things in-game that can help RNG: higher Archeology rank. certain rank give dig rate bonus***.

    Fact:
    by doing Eido prayer/wishes** + achievement req to get higher rank /medal. you will get to rank 7-8.

    Thankfully, with this fact, we can easily have motivation to do Archeology. yay!!

    ALL FOR the CUTE EIDOLON!!!


    rank 8++:
    there are 2 extreme methods.

    1. Commitment way.
    login each day with a few character. just do it. dig dig dig.

    2. (this is what I did) After have multiple character (5++).
    turn on tv-show, anime series, Kdrama, homework, job or anything on the second monitor/TV.
    do archeology with minimal/no thinking.

    ^even with this method, I barely manage 200 dig each session lol (reason for 6 months++ finished time).
    VERY CASUAL and SLOW.


    Advantage: with multiple character, we can divide Inventory space for eidolon wishes.
    For example, we need a total of 25 Flawless Primitive Tool, 10 for Nalani, 15 for Uzuriel.
    with 2 character, we can finish it in 2-3 weeks, instead of 4-5 weeks with just 1 character.

    Disadvantage: since some artifact = not shareable, most Archeology token = stay in certain character, make it harder to buy the profession costume.

    For whoever who don't read the basic:
    Highlighted comments:

    while digging, we can choose a color that we want.

    After you see the glowing color you can cancel the identification process by pressing the "Escape" button, and go to the next digging spot.

    it will still consume 1x Identification tool set Durability.
    cancelling the identification process will not increase the digging character limit (100 each day, reset 12am)


    Enjoy digging!

    This guide is also wrong

    after level 8 white drops and wota's stop giving exp (higher level maps, lower ones cut of earlier)

    after level 9 green drops stop giving xp

    once you are rank 9 only maps, gold drops, and orange quality digs will give you xp and orange drops give you the worst, the most efficient way to level your digging is to combine poinsetta buff + bently buff from guild hall and profession sprites if you can afford them and then dig on maps where the flawless/top quality drop is on the blue color (see ak.to references for your selected day) and then only do blue digs while canceling on every other color, its slow, but you can still average 3-4k xp per character and more during Monster Hunt Profession buff week.

    Thank you for your clarification, I indeed mention that

    "-to level up in certain rank, need to dig certain things in certain maps.".

    when player level up their rank, I expect them to notice the exp different they will get from any drops

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    -"only dig blue color"
    -"only dig red color treasure chest / certain texture"
    -"only dig at this hour : 1-2 for this map"

    I did ask from many veteran about their tips and trick.
    they have different UNIQUE advice/belief.

    Yours maybe better Raynee, who knows.

    tho, I will stick with my suggestion.
    just dig any color with multiple character, since gold drops can drop from any color.


    Profession is closer to marathon than sprinting.
    do it, till you get there, eventually.
    don't give up, is the key.


    Usually I get around 2-3k exp per character with full buff during Monster Hunt Profession buff week.

    and can confirm that my method is SLOWER. tho, its better since its less demanding on the brain power.



    extra tips for digger out there: take a break once in a while when you are doin any profession, not just digging.
    open youtube, turn on your favorite music, cat clip,etc.
