I just did my living elements transmute today, and the proc only yielded 4 extra volatiles. Instead of the normal 14-16 that I've gotten in the past.

But the patch notes and hotfix lists on mmo-champion don't say anything about proc changes.

Was this proc nerfed or is this a bug?

I wanted to hop in and clarify and confirm there was in fact a change that was implemented with the patch that unfortunately did not make the patch notes.

The change actually adjusted the return on the transmutes so that you weren't getting spikes in the amount of items you'd get from the transmute. Instead, if you transmute over a period of time, the amount of the transmute return should even out.

So basically if you transmute on a regular basis, you should see a more regular return on the transmute vs. a spike in large returns. Transmutation specialists will almost always get a PROC when transmuting living elements.

Ok so what I get from this as a whole for xmuting is instead of xmuting and getting like a 5 proc on truegold and then a 2 proc on true gold one week then next week getting nothing but no procs it will now be more like a 2 proc every other day over the course of 2 weeks?


That should be about right. It wasn't about reducing the amount of procs you could get so much as evening it out to be more consistent over all.

Thanks for the update, Neth! There's always confusion about this kind of change after patches when it is not in the notes.


We're very sorry about the confusion and lack of note. Please feel free to keep us up to date if you see anything else that seems out of sorts and we'll try to take a look at it.

With every expansion we've released, we've generally had another follow-up patch that makes a lot of additional fixes and adjustments. Unfortunately, that also means things slip through the cracks despite our best efforts. We do what we can to address those as quickly as possible though and will continue to do so.
