Wiki Archaeology Collections Checklist
Archaeology collections on the wiki is a HUGE bonus to use, as you can check them off (they turn green) so you can keep track of what you have done collection wise. 

Sign_of_the_porter_VI.png?fbda2 Sign of the porters

These best used in archology to avoid having to running back an forth to either a material deposit box of a bank booth. Signs of the porter can also be placed into Grace of the Elves. 

Auto-screener_v1.080.png?bb9e6Auto-screener (requires invention level 67 and Associate Rank):

This costs 50,000 chronotes to make but is by far one of the most amazing items for archology when used with signs of the porters, it will screen your soil into materials and your porters will place them into your material box meaning you can stay until you run out of porter charges (on average this is 30-45mins!)

Archaeology_journal.png?5dc30 Archaeology journal: 

Is a handy book that you can check what you need for certain collectors, keep an eye on your mysteries, your materials or use it to teleport to the archaeology guild. 

Archaeological_soil_box.png?66015Soil box:

Your soil box is your best friend if you need more materials and don't want to drop soil. It's capacity  will upgrade as you rank up in your Qualifications

Complete_tome.png?af8ec Complete Tome

By far the best method for xp, you get these while excavating at any excavation spots as well as from tretra compass reward caskets, if you are looking to train as fast as possible you'll want to get as many as these via completing collections for tetra compass pieces. 

 

Augmentor.png?bc123 Augmentation

If you have a Mattock that is able to be augmented you'll also want to have Honed 5 as a main perk, the secondary perk can then be your preferred choice. If you happen to choose Imp Souled as your second perk to save on your Sign of the porters charges, it's recommended to also have Ancient elven ritual shard to keep your prayer up.

Artefacts

When you are getting artefacts is best to get at least 2 of them because the likely hood is they will be required in more than one collection.

Spoiler

 

Please read the tips section first, as an autoscreener, porters and other things will help this go even faster!

 

This leveling route is none-ironman friendly, sorry Ironmen, you'll have to gather all your materials so it's still best to restore the highest artefacts you can.

This is based on all materials that are avaliable as unlimited on the Grand-exchange which saves alot of time farming them to restore artefacts. (list below)

It is a great guide I will be sending players over to! In the mattocks section you should add that the dragon, crystal, imcandio, and Tony's mattock are 1 (2 with Tony's) tiers above the level requirement in terms of dig speed and accuracy and are augmentable making them even faster with honed 5.

Great guide mate! One little thing: As far as I know, the stockpiled art excavation at the Everlight dig site is not accessible since it requires a certain progression in the Hallowed Be mystery. It could be that I've done something wrong but I've never been able to excavate there. But again, great job on the guide mate!

Beast of a guide mate, as always.

If there’s one thing I’d love to see it’s added meta methods for acheiving rankups in arch. One method for mains and one for irons seeing as it’ll be a bit different :ph34r:

Hopefully going to be working on this today, I'll keep in mind mineral requirements and locations for ironmen for the restorations and try to also fit it in with the most optimal xp method.

This information has now been added along with an augmentation tip added to the tips spoiler

I've also noticed that you coloured the Level 119 Makeshift Pie Oven excavation spot as non-functioning but it is accesible actually. After completing the warforge mystery.

Fixed, also double checked the rest to make sure there are no other mistakes. Thank-you :wub:

Fastest leveling route has been added (it's not ironman friendly as ironmen have to gather all materials them selves so there is no real fast method). 

This guide is now complete, if there are is any incorrect information or when a new digsite comes out I will edit accordingly

 

As of now it's so large it freezes multiple times when editing o.O so I will do my best to keep up with new stuff
