Archaeology icon Cataclysm Archaeology (Profession)

Archaeologists can get repeatable quests in dungeons that requires a specific keystone to complete and offer a buff and gold as rewards.

The quests become available at 425 archaeology skill, and buff the instance, rather than the characters. The buff affects all characters in the instance, and is not lost due to death. The buff is not lost if the character completing the quest leaves the group. Similarly, the buff affects even characters who join the group and enter the instance after the quest is completed.

While the repeatable quest indicator (Availabledaily) currently remains over the object quest giver, once the buff has been activated, the quest may not be completed again for that instance's lockout.
