"Step 1: Recover an artifact from each of the first two main excavation sites (The Dead Hills)
Loot an artifact"

For this part, there were 2 crates at the top of the scaffolding and the crates were trapped and locked and only rogue would open. Glad we had one with us but this might be a pita for some if only rogue or bard can do it.

Dps crates down and single mob will spawn by %. Kill add and repeat till crate is destroyed.
Do this twice.

what i did is  i used my spell Wuggan's Greater Discombobulation or Reebo's Greater Exorcism to dis arm the trap and then used Reebo's Greater Cleansing or Wuggan's Greater Extrication to  pick the lock  as i play a necormancer i have access to both the   int caster  versions and the priest  versions of these spells  they worked like a charm and i did not  have to  fight any of the mobs in the area as i did not trigger the trap. got to  love spells that  people forget about and then the  make relevant again  since these are  spells from  the LDoN  expansion.
