Terrance Balando the Archaeological expert is a non-player character at the Digsite who is interested in the historical value of items which might be found there. Players can use items on him and he will tell them if there is any archaeological significance to the item. Players who bring him 3 gold nuggets will also receive 1 gold ore in return.

He is involved in the Desert Treasure quest, where he translates a set of etchings near the beginning of the quest. If players speak to him while wielding an ancient staff, he will say it is incredible and will comment on the Zarosian symbol.
