Hi Lysi nice to hear from you, and welcome bindibear
I done the same with my Dk ( the L 78 one ) as soon as she was out the starting area I worked on skining and mining, thats all she needs just so she can make some gold. It is far better to level as you go ,it makes things alot easier going once the professions catch up.
Bindibear I Guarantee we have ALL been there with Archaeology and the claw. I got fed up with Archae at some points as well thinking why me, everyone else has it
It will drop eventualy I found it very shortly after my fourth tol'vir rare ( about 3 builds after ).
As pet collectors it is our duty to spend hours and days banging our fists on the comp desk in frustration and shouting at our husbands just because they asked "have you got it yet?" spending weeks in dark god forgotten hell holes killing the same mobs over and over and over again JUST to come back the next day and do it all again...I ermmm
Ok that rant didnt help ya but ..
Point is it WILL drop you just gotta keep at it.
