    @menace97: Go

    It's for when you get something like Apothecary Tins.
    You can click the crate button to put it in a box instead of looking through your bags to find it.

    Similarly if you get any of the pre-MoP crates like Crate of Tol'vir Archaeology Fragments it helps you do the opposite (open the crate to get the fragments out)

    @suzumebachi: Go

    Install both (make sure you have the latest version) and go into Archy's options, there's a section dedicated to TomTom integration.

    If you've done that and it's not working maybe you have a conflicting addon or you've somehow moved the crazy arrow off-screen.

    What happens if you type /way 0 0

    Great addon. I can't seem to get TomTom waypoints to work though. Is there something I need to do to get Archy and TomTom to work together? How do I get Archy and TomTom to set the nearest dig site as a crazy taxi arrow waypoint?

    This is going to sound silly. I have updated Archy w/ the curse client, but I CANNOT get the area digsites to come up on my minimap. I've gotten through all the settings and I CANNOT get my waypoint to come up. Am I doing something wrong? I have the newest version 1.8.24...I dont no what it means when it sas I need the latest Beta release. Can someone help me please?!

    @soulyouth: Go

    @soulyouth: Removed your comment as it was solved on TomTom side.

    In future if you encounter a bug with Archy or a bug you think is related to Archy post it as a ticket please, not in the comment space :)

    @pastafazola: Go

    Archy has no code to announce looting of artifact fragments.

    My guess would be it's another addon you updated or installed at the same time.
    (or an addon you already had installed that was missing some library Archy is embedding)

    Same is true about minimap icons.
    Archy does put its own icon on the minimap (can be disabled from Archy options) but doesn't mess with the minimap clock.

    A list of your other addons might help find the issue.
