To Excavate, click on a square to see what is below. If you are lucky you will find artifacts.

Excavating is a special action that gives your Dinoz the possibility to gather ingredients from ancient settlements. It is based on the collecting skills of the Elem 1 Wood element. That means your Dinoz needs one of the skills Search, Detective or Archeologist to excavate. Your Dinoz will only be able to perform this collecting action at certain places, which are listed below.

Your Dinoz can also learn how to excavate larger areas by learning the skills Search Expert and Planner.

Different Dinoz will excavate the same board as each other. This means that if Dinoz #1 excavates four squares in Dinotown, then Dinoz #2 will come to a board with four empty squares in Dinotown.

After you uncover every square in a grid, the next time you perform this collection skill, you will receive 1,000 gold and the grid will reset.


Search might get you the following artifacts:

Detective might get you the following artifacts:

Archeologist might get you the following artifacts:

It turns out useful to "park" a dinoz with excavation skills at the Ashpouk Ruins. This allows you to excavate with each turn, fight with each turn and to get an unlimited amount of Goblin Merguez to reduce the life drain of all dinoz.
