You Fail At Archaeology If...

Tuesday is upon us, which means it is everyone's favourite day of the week, Fail Day! Now many of you might just think I say that, but thousands of people read this blog every week on Tuesday from over 70 countries. I know it is insane. The amount of people on Tuesday is 2 to 3 times as much as any other day of the week. This is either madness or people really enjoy hearing about how much other people fail. This week I decided to let Archaeology do the talking. So without waiting any longer here it is.

You Fail At Archaeology If...
  • You open your profession tab every time you survey
  • You have no idea what the flashing lights mean
  • You forget to pickup an artifact you dug up
  • You started to solve artifacts before hitting 75
  • You don't know how to use the scrolls, stones, tablets etc
  • You think you are amazing for finding a rare
  • You are trying to get the bug mount without having completed the seven scepters achieve
  • You are complaining how there are only Orc and Draenei artifacts in Outland
  • You die while surveying
  • You have sold a "Word of Empress Zoe" before the patch
  • You have ever yelled at someone for stealing your dig site
  • You didn't save artifacts from the race whose epic you were going for
  • You solved artifacts and got no skillups because you forgot to train
  • You don't use the mod "Archy"

and finally

  • You have Zin'Rokh Destroyer of Worlds because I just hate you for it.

That is it for this week. As always thanks for reading and giving me a reason to keep this going. The support I get for all the posts I write is great, but Fail Day deserves special mention. Enjoy your not so Free Loot Tuesday.


  1. Win as always Gauss. I actuallyg feel sorry for the people who will be out 990g

  2. I have always enjoyed fail day, but I also read most of your blog on Tuesday. So who knows that may be the reason tuesday is so popular because of the downtime

  3. I am seriously thinking of ticketing a GM to ask for my 'Word of Empress Zoe' back :(

    Happy though because I got the Vial of the Sands recipe in my second Canopic Jar :)
