If you remember the recent Ask the Devs chat
that the fine folks at Blizzard posted, you'll remember the following exchange:

Q: Are there any plans to bring new items to Archaeology with each future patch? - Idej (North America/ANZ)
A: We may not make it every patch, but we designed Archaeology specifically with this kind of expandability in mind. Our most immediate plans are to add rare items to the Vrykul and especially Troll races, since they have so few, and add more to Fossils in general since you end up with so many Fossil sites. We also have some plans to make it slightly easier to focus on races upon which you want to focus.
It appears we may be seeing the first of these rare items in the datafiles, as the Vrykul Drinking Horn
, the Troll Drum
, and the Ancient Amber
now exist. These three rares flesh out three races that had limited reason to want to solve them. Now we're all just waiting for a means to focus on the races we want, am I right?
