Hidden in the depths of the ground lie ancient artifacts dropped by valiant adventurers of the past. Artifacts ranging from junk to epic are waiting to be discovered by someone like you. Anyone can partake in artifact hunting, no matter the in-game rank or point in progression. Do you think you have what it takes to be a Vox Populi Archeologist?
The archeology feature lets you find, collect, and trade items that tie into both Minecraft and Vox Populi lore. Some of these items you can trade in for hard to get enchanted weapons and armor. You can also trade in the scraps of ancient journals you find for restored versions of the original journals from past adventurers.
To find archeology items you just need to dig dirt, gravel, and other natural blocks. In addition, you can find these items by mining stone and ores. The types of items you find in these places are fossils, journals, and artifacts.
Once you find archeology items, you can take them to the Archeology Guild located in Valeria Beach. You can /warp archeology to get there or stop by the guild while you are downtown.
Junk artifacts and fossils can get you a few voxels from the villagers in the Archaeology Guild.
Common artifacts and fossils can be collected as trophies, or traded to the archaeology guild for a decent amount of money.
Trading in rare fossils, epic artifacts, and Ancient Magic Scrolls can earn you ancient blueprint scraps. These are the basic building blocks of the highly-coveted Ancient Blueprints. When completing the Ancient Blueprint, and pairing the item with certain rare fossils, you can get Imbued Blueprints.
Imbued blueprints are one of the main things you need to get a Lexicon. When these are paired with rare artifacts, you can revert them back to their original state and reveal their true power. Once you do that, the items are called relics, and are a few of the most powerful items you can obtain on Vox Populi.
It will be hard to acquire all of the items that you may need all by yourself. Thankfully these items can be bought and sold so barter and trade with fellow players to collect the items you desire. You can even team up with friends and go hunting for these items together!
