I dont know why transmutinig has been recently nerfed but everyone I play with agrees that the rare rate has fallen off by at least 50 percent. But even adjusting to that, the fact that the server doesnt save items that you have recently transmuted when they (so very often recently) drop it without notice has cost me about 10 plat worth of items I bought and transmuted. So frustrating.. Grimwell can ya help on this?

There's been no nerf, you're just having a bad RNG streak.  You really thing Domino has time to tweak percentages right now?And they DO save when they take the servers down...  What server are you on?

I''m on Venekor and Turst me, I bought and Xmuted like 10p worth of items over the last 2 days, the server will drop without notice and the xmuting items are no longer in my bags, or on the broker...and the plat is still out of my bank. I sent a bug report on this yesterday but /ignored as usual...Probably stop playing for a while til they get it worked out...like I said it's too frustrating

Oh, i have like 8 other xmuters I play with and the nerf (or bad luck run) is real. We all agree

You're welcome, although I can't take credit for the original list.  I salvaged that when the forum revamp happened SMILEY

I have not noticed a change in rates. I have noticed the RNG is as streaky as normal SMILEY The other night I transmuted 4 legendary items and got 3 infusions!   ... some nights I transmute 10 legendary and get all powders. The treasured stuff seems to be giving it's normal "all over the place" ratio of powers to shards. I normally transmute about 40-50 items a night and have not noticed anything.

You will NEVER get a feedback on /bug. If you need assistance you should use /petition.Well in your case you should have used both: /bug to report it to the developer (hopefully they will fix it soon) and /petition to get the help of a GM (and hopefully your coins or the items back)

I can't say I have noticed any change in the transmuting rates. But I have experienced problems with transmuting items just before a server shutdown. The other night I had just transmuted around 15 masters, about 5 minutes before a shutdown.When server was back up, i had roughly half of the infusions/mana that I should have had, but no masters.

Odd, I haven't seen any drop in rates at all.  I have a few tier 7 items on the broker, all were there when I last checked, about two hours before this post.  I also just did some transmuting, decided to grind my last 15 skill points so I'd be at 350/350 before RoK is live.  Broke down all treasured items, was the usual feast or famine on powders, sometimes I'd get powder after powder, sometimes I'd get almost none.  Not making light of your situation as an aside, obviously hope you get this resolved with regards to missing items.

There have been no nerfs or other changes to this.But were you the one I saw standing on the Windstalker hill in Antonica yelling that the God of Random Number Generators was a flea-infested son of a halfwitted gnoll?  Cause if so, that might have been a bad move.  SMILEY

I must say, the God of Random Number Generators is indeed a fickle god in EQ2. Some days he giveth (over and over) and on other days, he taketh away (again and again).

Might have been me, no, second thought not me. My conversations with the great GOD of RNG are usually not so tame even if they are shortlived. She puts me in my place when I go to far. Thats okay though, me and her are like this . We understand each other perfectly and I server her faithfully. She keeps me humble and I try to beat her but never succeed.

I just get a little mad about her close association with the respected but very god "Murphy" and his stupid law but she understands that and lives with a few cross words from me now and then.

Edited to show The great and powerful Murphy his properly deserved respect.

Please, not that, no, I didn't mean to be disrespectful,  but everything was going so good too, why now.

D*** YOU MURPHY!!!! Please help me great and wonderful RNG.
