Any good arch finds in Pandaria?

Just looking quickly it doesn't seem like it. Are there any reasons for me to dig there outside of achievements?

Want to level alts?

There's your reason.

The one big winner is the Spear of Xuen, which is fantastic for feral druids, brewmaster monks... and even warriors, ret paladins and DKs. If you want it be sure and get it ASAP so you can upgrade it--you'll have an ilevel 471 polearm that can be equipped at level 85.

There's also an off-hand caster item and a trinket that use the level 90 BoA equippable at 85 format but they aren't as good.

Yeah, they say it's to see what happens and measure feedback (or something like that).
Items that have already been upgraded get to keep their upgraded status.

I powerleveled Arch last week to get the Spear. It only took maybe an hour and a half a night for a week to get it, and that wasn't really hardcore dedicated arch-ing either. Make sure to get ArcheoHelper and GatherMate, they really simplify it. ArcheoHelper helps you find nodes easier by marking red/green/yellow places on an overlay rather than just having you guess how far the surveying scope means, and GatherMate marks every node you find on that screen and on your map so when you come back to the same site, it's easier to zero in on spots.

The spear is absolutely worth it, to the point that it's ridiculous. My warrior is doing more DPS while leveling than my death knight is at 90. The Death Knight's not exactly well-geared, but still. Level 90 damage while still leveling means almost everything goes down in three or four hits tops.
