    New problem with a latest update, got it when teleporting from garrison to Shrine of Seven Stars. Error was popping up every second until I reloaded.

    Message: Interface\AddOns\Archy\Digsite.lua:79: attempt to perform arithmetic on a nil value

  • #2003

    Fixed in - issue was with an assumption on the behavior of HereBeDragons versus that of Astrolabe.

  • #2002

    In fact, it seems it keeps happening on every zone change as long as I have Archy shown.

  • #1997

    Updated it today (Sinday Aug. 23th) and I keep getting this Error :

    Thought I'd report cause it's really a pain and you might need the whole msg to work on it.  It pop just by moving 


    Still a great add-on, hope you can fix it soon.

    Does resolve this for you?

  • #1994

    I am having the same error. I disabled NPCScan for now and it seems to have fixed the issue.

  • #1996

    I didn't notice that NPCScan was causing this problem. I'll disabled it and try again. Thanks for the tip!

  • #1990

    Is there a way to have a digsite progress bar in archy? This is especially useful now that digsites have WAY more artifacts than before. It seems it's made the default progress bar from WoW disappear, but doesn't seem to replace it with anything that I can see.

  • #1991

    This has been rolled into the Digsites window: Shows 2/6 or 0/9 etc. May add a config option for this later if there's enough demand for it. I removed it due to complaints.

  • #1992

    Ah, I see it now! Thanks!

  • #1987

    Hi Torhal, and ty for keeping this wonderful addon up to date !

    Recently I found out Libbabble-digsites-3-0 wasn't anymore in the Archy's Libs folder as it used to be pre-WoD, so I was wondering where are all the digsites names and translation saved now since Archy 6.0 ?
