Living Elements xmute proc nerfed/broken?Follow

Did my first xmute of the patch - woot, proc, volatile fire...wait...WTF - only three?

Don't recall seeing any notes about that so question is broken or working as intended?

Edit - OK, did it again tonight and I'm going to say possible change vs nerf - just got eight earth in addition to my normal combine, so either I got two procs in a row or they now always give a little something extra (as per the original post about how it was supposed to work), just not necessarily as much as a full proc.

I didn't get any bonus at all this morning when I did my daily air transmute, so I don't think this is it. Possible that they upped the rate and lowered the amount, however.

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.


I was making a load of flasks (flask master) last night and didn't get one proc, has anyone else had this, or has the RNG been unfavourable?

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.
