Just by the name alone, all I can think of is Thing from Addams Family.
This is going to be the most awesome pet in Cataclysm. But have to say it's not going to be the most awesome of all time because of
The grabbing hands.
Grab all they can.
All for themselves.
It's a competitive world.
Everything counts in large amounts.
Is that Morrowgar's Ring?
The first thing I thought of after seeing this: Legend of Zelda.
maybe its just me but im curious about that things ring, i would assume if it belonged to a Djinn it wouldn't be mundane.
I'm strangely reminded of the hand from the Zelda games, hopefully when it grabs you it ports you to your hearth rather than the beginning of the dungeon.
does this item dissapear on use? or is it reusable and u can send it around on other chars since its BOA? :)
They're creepy and they're crawly, they crawl on the walls-y they're the Floormaster Family! Double reference! (more than one floormaster can be seen at a time, wallmasters not so much)
There's a joke in this about one-handed-wow... just too tired to think of it.

The Crawling Claw is a unique companion pet, meaning that no other pet shares the same model. This moves on its index and middle fingers and will sometimes jump up and do rock, paper, scissors, or do a 'thumbs up' animation.
How to get it
The Crawling Claw can be created by
once they reach skill level 450. In order to create this artifact you must gather 150
from Uldum and you may use up to three
to reduce the amount of fragments needed by 36 (12 x 3).
Being a huge pet collector, this pet is rough.
Tol'vir digsites hardly ever pop up for me, nevermind hoping a Rare queues in the Arch profession, and hoping its this one! Sheesh. Not giving up though. But the grind is rather bad.
Managed to aquire the pet after around 55 solves. After having done recently a gathered 20 solves and getting nothing but vendor items and being in the verge of ditching archaeology until a major future drop-rate patch, i gathered my patience again and went for it. Kept gathering fragments till i had enough for around 15 solves and went for it.
It seems to follow the pattern of Ring -> Scarab -> Pet -> Mount, even though a friend of mine reported getting the mount as his first rare of Tol'vir.
PS: Looks awesome on a goblin if u feed the pet with biscuits :D
For some reason, this remind me of Zelda ocarina of time. In forest temple there were hands hanging in the floor, trying to grab you when u entered. Not saying its a referance tho.
I don't think there's really an order for the rares. I got pendant, then ring, then pet so far. Have yet to see the mount. 34 solves for the pet to pop.
There is no order for rares.
My order for Tol'vir so far: Ring > Scarab > Staff. Mount is obviously what I want the most, this pet being the second most sought-after item.
"Hands down".... one of the best companions. Oh man, I crack myself up.
I want to update WoWpedia's unsolved text of this artifact. So is there anyone who completed Crawling Claw able to post the unsolved texts?
I thought I procced the Scepter of Azj'Aqir mount for a second =(...
Scarab>Ring>Crawling Claw so far. This was my
th Tol'vir solve.
I just got this on my priest Cascade Terenas EU, not sure whether it's realm first or not. But just to let you know that in order for the pet to perform the rock, paper and scissors animation someone else must have a Crawling Claw pet summoned.
Will no longer be Bound to Account as soon as Patch 4.1 hits.
When next to someone with a Crawling Claw, your pets will eventually play rock, paper, scissors until one of them loses. The loser blows up and the winner gives a thumbs up.
Got it on 38th solve
Funny note: if you click on this pet it will peep like a monkey (or mb lemur). Which part of hand can make sounds lol? :D
100th Tol'vir solve. Got ring first, then scarabs, then the battle tank ... this was #4.
Ring -> Scarabs -> Pet
omg its Luke Skywalker's hand! its teeming with the force....
I got this item from completing the Mummified Monkey Paw relic of the Tol' Vir. As of this date the pet is still Bind on Account.
For me it was pendant -> ring -> bug mount -> ?
*atm got 37 Tol'vir's solved but still no 4th rare, hope it will be pet... doubt it can be weapon (staff/sword) as weapon are always last ones at least as far as i know. let's see if it will be a pet
patch 4.1 - now it should be much easier to find this hand-pet (and other rares you need) - "
Players now have a much smaller chance of getting a dig site for a race for which they have completed all rare finds
+2 new pets:
Pterrordax Hatchling -Companion Pet- -Fossil- 120 fragments
Voodoo Figurine -Companion Pet- -Troll- 100 fragments
spare a hand sir?
Must be one of the most awesome pets I've seen this far in World of Warcraft :D
This was my third rare Tol'vir project and my 147th Tol'vir solve.
I know that many people find comments about when someone got an item to be utterly useless. I, however, felt encouraged every time I read a comment about when someone actually got this project to pop. It's completely random when you get this project, and it might be a really long time until it finally does. Just keep digging!
Also, it helps if you have a guild with the Bountiful Bags guild perk (level 23), as it increases the number of keystones you find.
Reminds me of the hand from Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past... The one that grabs you and brings you to the dungeon entrance.
Decided to grind out my archaeology tonight. Went from 300-525. I mostly just want to get the mount but any BoA epics along the way won't hurt. Kept farming until my first tol'vir rare popped. My 5th project came up with this. I'll finish getting the fragments for it tomorrow. Good luck farming and hang in there. Wish me luck on the mount grind.
Got this pet around my 7th Tol'vir item. It seems to be rather rare, as in all the servers I've been on (including mine), I've not seen a single person with this pet aside from myself. It's disappointing. It's a lovely pet and quite useful! Being a Worgen, I like having a hand to scratch my back. =)
Note that it's married.
man a lot of lucky archeologists here >_>
the crawling claw was my last tol'vir rare but still i had to do 381 before i got it
bye bye archeology for now
Shows up in your archaeology tab as "Mummified Monkey Paw"
"This appears as nothing more than the paw of a small primate. A closer inspection shows that the hand has been dried by centuries of exposure to the sands of Uldum. Still, you have no doubt that it is far more than meets the eye."
The walking animation is very... sassy.
this actually reminds me a little bit of a d&d campain i am playing. my wizard has a dismembered hand for a familiar. i just wonder if it will be able to fight as well as in d&d when the next expansion comes out. if nothing else it can probably grab its opponent.
A friend of mine just got the pet after 141 Tol'vir artefacts. So let's do some math.
Each digsite takes about 5 minutes to harvest, including flight time. You need an average 20 digsites to proc 4 Tol'vir digsites. So:
5x20=100, 100+(4x5)<=>100+20=120. So it'd take about 120 minutes (2 hours) to get a full set 4 Tol'vir digsites.
With 4 digsites, you can finish about 1 to 2 artefacts, depending on how many keystones you buy/dig up along the road. So, since I'm permanently pessimistic, I'll aim for a single completed artefact.
The time it takes to create a single artefact times the amount of needed artefacts:
120x141=16.920 minutes, <=> 282 hours <=> 11.75 days.
Not exactly a farm to look forward to. Oh well!
PS: All this is an estimation. Of course, there will be people that get the project on the first Tol'vir artefact they unlock, whereas others will never even see the claw. If there are any mistakes, do tell.
Just got this as my 3rd Tol'Vir rare solve (pendant 1st, then ring). It's my 34th Tol'Vir solve, I think I got extremely lucky.
On my 448th Tol'vir solve. Still no pet. I hate Blizzard for their stupid random system which is really %^&* and makes people to quite this game as some of my friends did.
I'm at 87 solves while sitting on 2 rares. I have the ring and the scarab. Hoping for the pet next! I'm not sure whether I'll cry or cheer if the mount proccs instead.
Completed the Crawling Claw today as my fourth tolvir rare. Been on a lucky streak this week
>Zin'rokh>Recipe: Vial of the Sands>Tyrande's Favorite Doll>Scepter of Azj'Aqir>Crawling Claw
Just completed this pet today. It's my 3rd Tol'vir rare. Scarab, Ring, Claw. Hoping for the mount, which is my whole reason for doing Archy.
I'm also an Alchemist with (4) Canopic Jar openings but no recipe.
My stats once I FINALLY got this pet... why was I able to get the bug mount waaay before this!
Night Elf: 1200
A number of people have commented on here saying "I have X number of solves and still haven't gotten it" only to return a few solves later, joyfully saying "I got it on solve number Y!"
After reading all of these, I'm convinced that that's the secret to getting it to proc, so here goes...
Currently sitting on 400 Tol'vir and 1442 Total solves with no luck yet.
Got it after 35 tol'vir solves ;) lucky me.
Just got this pet at 91 Tol'Vir solves, looks great with a pet biscuit.
Funny fact about this one is, if you take it swimming, it will look like it's walking on water or it will Freeze-walk-freeze.
I am a pretty determined person when it comes to the game. I have farmed all the other pets that you can get from mobs and such in game. However, this one is the bane of my existance. I am currently at 434 total solves and 70 Tol'vir solves. Archeaology makes me so sleepy when im doing it that it becomes very difficult. Lol, I hope to get this soon, if not, maybe i have found a cure for insomnia. :P
684 total solves - 90 Tol'vir solves - and no pet. Pendant > Ring > Scimitar, so far. I don't give a damn about the mount.
seeing people with a ton of solves...this my 21st solve, 2 of the others were pendant of the scarab storm and ring of the boy emperor, guess the tolvir like me.
Grinding is boring but it is something to do before raids or in between queues. Also, do it while watching netflix.
So far I have found , in order ,
Ring of the Boy Emperor,
Pendant of the Scarab Storm
Scepter of Azj'Aqir
Staff of Ammunae
I have 132 Tol'vir solves, this archaeology is my love hate relationship!
On my 21'st canopic jar I recieved the recipe for Vial of sands ,, ok Edit inc
I finally got this, it was after my 150 Tol'vir solve :) woot !
Got mine today after 150 Tol'vir solves. My previous Tol'vir rewards were (in order) the Pendant of the Scarab Storm, Ring of the Boy Emperor and Scepter of Azj'Aqir.
YOU ARE THE ONE "INFLAMES" THAT SONG WAS WRITTEN AND MADE FAMOUS BY NONE OTHER THEN DEPECHE MODE.
get your facts straight before you try looking cool with your phony emo rock taste in music.
I believe this belongs to
. Never mind going blind, apparently your hand will fall off too...
I am an aspiring pet collector; I have 136 and would like to reach 150 before the new expansion releases in a month. This of course is wishful thinking, but it hasn't stopped me.
One day while I was doing arch, my boyfriend got on and joined me by doing his, too. Wouldn't you know that he got this companion instantly? He was laughing and apologizing, and I replied with that I would get his Uldum mount and
Zin'rokh, Destroyer of Worlds
. No surprise here, I got them after I said that.
I spent almost a month once trying to gear my toon. It didn't happen. I had stuff taken from me by people who didn't need it; it wasn't fair, but I kept going.
Weeks later, I convinced my guild to let me raid with them on that toon, since I would be fine once I had something other than dungeon gear. Funny thing, just about everything for me dropped in two lockouts and I got it all.
I tried to gear holy too, would you believe that I spent a month
(including countless dungeons)
over trying to get just a pve shield? One Monday night, we raided before it reset. Our healers were druids and a priest, our dps were casters/ranged, our tanks were a death knight and prot/ret paladin... but there lied my shield. Practically there for me and only me.
Sometimes I think that I won't get this pet. I then get 4~6 Uldum dig sites in a row, complete with a hieroglyphic or two dropping.
So I encourage you to never give up. If you have that mindset, you will get whatever you want in life. And I promise you that it feels so much better once you finally do get it.
Things happen, they get in the way; they make it seem like you are just not meant to do this, or get that, but you are perfectly capable of it, and you will find a way to get it as long as you keep trying. I promise.
(Secretly at almost 500 completed projects and 3/6 Uldum rares and will edit when I get it)
As of today I hit 200 Tol'Vir solves trying to find this pet. So far I'm 4/6 rares in the following order:
Ring of the Boy Emperor (16th)
Pendant of the Scarab Storm (56th)
Scepter of Azj'Aqir (126th)
Scimitar of the Scirocco (140th)
Going to keep going I guess. *sigh* Reading all these comments I don't feel too bad. I don't 'arch' in my free time. I think the last time I was bored I went for the mount and went from 0-126 Tol'Vir solves in a week, completing the Night Elf rares in the process (which of course doubled my Tol'Vir digsite pops). Now, with my main toon pretty much ready for MoP and his rare Fox Kit becoming commonplace with 5.0, I want a nice, interesting, rare new pet to have for pet battles. Cheers. Will update.
UPDATE: 260 still no rares. 120 commons since last rare. 8/17
UPDATE: 301 still no rares. 161 commons since last rare. 8/22
How to get this and other rares. Focus on Vial of the Sands. I've gotten 4 rares already. This is my forth rare and my 25th solve.
Got it on my 71st Tol'vir solve. Adding this info so others can determine an average number of solves needed.
Finnaly got this AWSOME Pet /battle today and i dont have to ever farm tolvir rares ever again cuz now i got the mount the pet the flamesword scarab thingy and the ring that is no use now :D
took me forever to get the bloody pet buts its over phewwwww....
hey guys, been farming this for a few days now, on my 49th solve, got scarab pendant and boy emperors ring and no hand yet :( completed &*!@e elf rares and still getting alot of their digsites ¬¬ getting to a point where i rely wanna give up cuz of the still relentless elf crap but before i do i thought i'd test my luck and see if posting here helps me out like it has for quite a few others lol will let you know in a few digs time if it works or i give in lol good luck to the rest of you slowly crushing your own souls in hopes of finding this dam hand :)
Ring- 2nd tol'vir solve
Scarab Pendant - 17th tol'vir solve
I'm currently at 270 tol'vir solves and I've had nothing since, I'll update this post as I get more rares...
Here's hoping the RNG Gods smile at me!
(Also at 253 fossils solves without the final rare for it)
Still no new rare from either.
Got my final fossil rare (the shield) as my 290th solve!
Got the scepter the same night as my 321st solve! Now for the pet!
Tol'vir - 390 no pet, yet!
Tol'vir - 450 still no pet :( getting a little depressing with two days left before mop.
For pet battles this pet is insanely good. It's heal is on like a 2 or 3 round cooldown, it does good damage with it's basic, and curse of doom is pretty darn good to. This pet is a must.
if that's true 500, i'm quitting now. i'm at around 50 for all besides orc/dranei/vyrkul/nerub I can't see myself handling another 450 finds without something.. . I got ring, scarab, mount.. mount at around 40. That's seriously way way too much if that's true. because I don't even know the hours i've already spent on this and i only have around 50 for those.. f'king ugh.. I hope my luck is better than yours.. if i make it to 100 solves without finishing, or at least getting the claw i'm dropping arch and f'ing cursing it till the day I die.
I'm one away from fossil, need the mount
one away from dwarf, need the staff
couple away from night elf.. i think.. i forget, got the disappointing bones of rrr.. something, some bones :P or something haha.. yesterday.
need the sword, there's a staff i think too? and the claw from tol'vir.
haha, i read the guys post under me just now. The whole reason I started arch was the claw.. I got the mount.. it's pretty awesome heh.. honestly idk if i'd trade for it, ya, I guess when I started I didn't think of the mount as something i'd really want.. but now that I have it.. it's something I'm glad I got hah.
You can cage and sell this pet.
It literally bound itself to my Wrist when i picked it up : / it was ever so troublesome to remove.
After 74 Tol'vir solves the 75th was the mummified monkey claw, i.e. the crawling Claw. The rares were the ring, the scarab, the mount and then the Thing. The time between the mount and the Thing were 20 solves. Did it by grinding MOP sites, then turning them in for Tol'vir artefacts.
Great this is just great.
So there is hope for all that it won't take too long.
See you at the pet battles.
I leveled up my archaeology only for this pet and I knew I wouldn't get it for ages. I got the pet after only 4 solves. FOr the first time in my 8 years long WoW career I got lucky!
I named mine "Three Wishes" in honor of the Simpsons halloween special with the evil monkey paw that gives them three wishes.
Very funny thread.
When i get this pet these puns will come in ... handy.
why you always leave a note.
edit: Not a lot of Arrested Development fans around these parts, eh? Sheesh. Tough crowd.
Wow... looking at some of these post, I don't feel so bad with my measly 120 solves.
It's frustrating to turn in 580 restored artifacts all for Tol'vir and get the same crap over and over again.
The only plus side is some of the rares sell for 200 and 100 gold but still, it's frustrating.
I've had all the other rares done ages ago - mounts, pet, shield, robes, staff, scepter etc.
I'll just keep plugging away and hope I get lucky.
this usually comes before the mount (atleast for me and couple of my friends) plus side in this pet is that it sells around 8-18k depending server prices. so dont sell it cheap people! it takes time to get this one so its worth some gold:)
Looking at the model, it's a clear reference to the hands of humans.
Been looking for this pet since I discovered it in the game. I leveled Archy for the express reason to acquire this pet. I've been digging for hours a day (sometimes
) with no luck in this popping. As of this posting, I still
have this pet. I am posting merely to reinforce that there is no, I repeat,
NO pattern to this
. After speaking to some friends and reading other postings, I was convinced the rare solve "order" was scarab, ring,
. I have gotten the scarab, I have gotten the ring...my excitement overtook me as I dug for the fragments and waited for my next rare to pop. "The claw," I kept telling myself. I then got the scimitar and just (
about 10 minutes ago
) got the mount.
I'm a bit shocked I got a weapon
the mount before the pet, but this just goes to show that
there is no order
; all things are random. I have a total of 23 Rare solves (across all the different fragments) and this is by far
most illusive and frustrating. I am convinced it is not popping because I want it most of all. However, my resolve remains...and I shall press on.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL!
My 85 Mage is 525/525 Archaeology and I want to farm Uldum for the Claw pet, but I can't get any sites to pop in Uldum. Every time I finish a dig and look on the continent map, I see 4 sites scattered over the continent (as always), but none in Uldum. I don't have MoP, but it shouldn't be required, since Uldum is Cata. Am I missing something, or do I need to do something different to get dig sites in Uldum ?
Remember you can turn in
. You get these from solving Pandaria artifacts or buy with
RNG for Tol'vir is horrible /bang head. Here is my story 138 Solves tolvir and still haven't seen my 3rd rare. I have completed many other rares on this toon figured it was string of bad luck. I decided to start tolvir on hunte today. He had only completed 4 rares total before digging tolvir sites. 3rd roll on hunter Scarabs pop this was similar to Dk. 17th roll on hunter Ring pops again similar to dk but here is where things didnt add up. Kept digging on dk figuring i would make his 3rd rare pop first to compare number at 138 rolls i got frustrated and said im going back to hunter. On Hunter his 34th roll he get his 3rd rare the staff. I dont know if its just random RNG or if the fact my dk has 23 Total Rares solved and my hunter only 4 but I started wondering if the total rares solved was factored into the chance on another to come up. Sadly after opening a ticket the gm couldn't confirm this said that info was only known by developers. Only reason I even asked because another thread on here stated a gm told him that it did matter. I call bs.
They must have seriously increased the pop rate on Tol'vir rares. I got my mount, this pet, the ring, and then scarab thingy in less than 100 total solves (including all the initial solves I did when Cata released). --at least less than 100 according to the script someone posted on the scepter page.
Never dig naked!
addon makes the process significantly faster!
Currently, I am able to reset my dig sites (most importantly, my Tol'vir sites) by changing zones or logging out/in. I suspect it is because I have a
Mantid Artifact Sonic Locator
in my bags. A google search confirms this *very* helpful bug.
hi my account got hacked and i lose this pet, does anyone know if i can find it again?
Pendant of the scarab storm, Ring of the boy emperor, Scepter (mount), all within 50 solves, then at last, after 235 solves total, and not seeing a single rare in all this time, I saw a level 80 prot paladin twink almost dying to 2 serpents level 83 (also opposite faction), helped him, forgot to loot the fragments I had just found, saw the signal on the map, came back, completed the common artifact I had (usually I only complete them when I have 200 fragments, this time I had just enough for one) and surprise, next one was a rare, mummified monkey paw, since when being kind makes you more lucky in WoW? Thought it was only the selfish people who get lucky in this game, anyway...
I wasn't sure this would've been the pet, but I didn't want to check websites and discover it wasn't, I just farmed more fragments and tried, it was the paw of a monkey, so could've been this.
And when I finally completed it, the cast was "crawling claw", so done with archaeology except pandaria.
Took long, but it's really satisfying when it takes so long for something.
So 3 rares in around 50 solves, then 185 to get one more rare.
Other thing: I have the feeling that the first 2-3 rares, depending on people, are much easier to find, so if you got unlucky and didn't get the pet, nor mount in the first 3, you may try to level another char on archaeology and get the first rares quick and see if you got more lucky.
I didn't have archaeology on any other chars, else I'd have tried for sure.
still dropping as of nov 17th 2013, my 284th solve -_-
Is it possible to get a second claw if you've already farmed one ?
It looks like this hand was...
This awesome pet reminds me of the Wallmasters and Floormasters in Zelda: Ocarina of Time. You know, those creepy giant hands that would fall from the ceiling and grab you, or split into smaller hands that would drain your life ?
This can be bought on the AH for a hefty sum, but if you're like me you want to farm Tol'vir fragments for it. There are two ways to farm Tol'vir fragments - finding them at archaeology dig sites in
, or exchanging
Crates of Tol'vir Archaeology Fragments
Speed wise, both ways take roughly the same amount of time to farm. Farming fragments in Uldum is a gamble, as the dig sites share spawns with all other Kalimdor dig site spawns, of which there are only 4 at any one time, which spawn randomly when one dig site is finished.
Depending on your luck, this can be incredibly fast or incredibly slow. It does, however, have the benefit of getting paid alot from vendoring Night Elf, Dwarven, Troll, and Fossil junk. So much in fact, that you'll likely see many level 85 dwarven (
) gold farming bots while doing it. Can easily make 500-1000G an hour.
The second method involves completing dig sites around Pandaria. Common artifacts found in Pandaria can be packaged up into a
and exchanged for Tol'vir Fragments. Each crate however, only gives the same amount as a single dig from a dig site. You will likely achieve almost all of the Pandaria archaeology achievements in the process which is the benefit of doing it this way. Fragments per hour are far more consistant too.
After measuring the amount of fragments i recieved in an hour, using each of these methods i can say that the first method had a slight edge, but due to the gamble aspect, i prefer the second method.
In one hour completing Kalimdor dig sites, i attained 178 Tol'vir fragments, and 638G
In one hour completing Pandaria dig sites, i attained 147 Tol'vir fragments (20 Crates), and a plethora of achievements.
Before patch 5.2, there was a bug with
Mantid Artifact Sonic Locator
that would reset your dig sites upon moving between zones in Kalimdor, essentially allowing you to just move in and out of Uldum to create dig sites. This has been fixed now though and is no longer possible.
Oh and FYI - i've so far spent 20 hours over the past few days doing archaeology trying to get this thing and it just won't show up in my artifact sheet. It is an infuriatingly annoying grind.
Not only was it
behind but it's also a Southclaw... er
Just got mine today. I have been using my spirits of harmony to purchase Tol'vir fragments. I gave up long ago actually digging for them in the old world what with the only place to dig is Uldum. I considered giving up completely today and buy the one on the auction house for about 16k. First time I had seen one in quite awhile. Glad I didn't. Good luck to all who are still looking.
Want to know how to get this
I've been doing it the hard way for so long!
Yes, you can exchange your
Spirit of Harmony
- Horde or
- Alli) and then go to
and turn that item in for Crate of Tol'vir Archaeology Fragments.
I had the
Mantid Artifact Hunter's Kit
in my bag for sooo long. I thought "
why would anyone need the mantid artifacts that badly? I want the Tol'Vir stuff!
" Finally I decided just to use it to get it out of my bag and what I discovered led me to my
Mantid Artifact Hunter's Kit
which is, arguably, kind of useless, and is consumed upon one use. But it also contains the
Mantid Artifact Sonic Locator
which is the real money. It basically (for 24 hours) puts all of your archeology dig sites in either Townlong or Dread Wastes in a tightly packed group.
--Additionally, the mantid artifacts usually take 50 fragments to create and you pick up an average of 8 per dig. So you can effectivly, quickly work the smaller (which means faster) mantid sites to quickly create artifacts for turn in to
for your Tol'Vir fragments. I was collecting Mantid fragments so quickly that I had to keep creating the artifacts just so I could pick up more fragments (they cap at 200)
--AND, I was quickly able to gather the quest items for pristine artifacts which reward 3 additional
--AND, the haunts that sometimes pop up at dig sites award Mogu fragments which gives you even more opportunities to make artifacts.
As high level archeologists we are no stranger to long flights, long digs, and slow turn around; but this method sped that process up which I'm sure we're grateful for.
Anyway, needless to say this saves you from flying ALL over Pandaria to flying in a generally tightly packed and tiny dig sites. Yay!
I've been trying to get this thing since Archaeology was first introduced, and still don't have it. I even buy crates of Tol'vir artifacts every time I box a Pandaria or Draenor artifact, and still no luck.
For those who are still wondering, the "drop" rate is entirely random. I really wish it wasn't.
First few rares appear quickly. This happened on two toons. Rares I want (claw and mount) simply won't come. Ridiculous number of solves and rares simply refuse to show up.
I got this lil cutie today! I had 210 normal solves and 4 rare solves, taking my total to 214 when he popped up in my archaeology log.
I finished all the achievements for all expansions from Mists, back to Vanilla. For every artifact I solved, I bought Tol'vir crates so I could keep solving Tol'vir artifacts without needing to do any archaeology in Kalimador.
I started this journey when MoP was launched and continued on and off the whole way through that expansion and WoD.
I'm now moving on to the 3 Vyrkul and Nerubian toys - my last archaeology collectables to get! My other rares left are all BoE gear... I don't know if I'll have the will to do these, considering I know I won't use them! I've got 17 pristine WoD artifacts left - fingers crossed these three toys are easier to get =)
To those still on the journey - good luck!
this is how
Such a bummer how you can't get this artifact solve more than once, yet you can get the same Garrison missions and non-rare solves as many times as you want. Doesn't make sense, especially since you can sell the pet. It would still take a long time to get it twice, and you'd still have to put in a lot of dig site work.
I have to HAND it to Blizz....it's a pretty cool looking pet.....Let's give the Devs a HAND! /clap
Say that ten times fast!
413 solves to get this - still working on the mount.
IT'S ZA HANDO
for statistics: got it in shadowlands prepatch after 89 tol'vir -only- solves
but wild guess: loot protection kicks in for 3rd artifact at around 100 solves
next loot protection for 4th, when? guess 300 not sure if ill ever reach that :P
110 solves so far but no claw. Got 3 other rares during those solves though.
