    Cataclysm Volatile Life Transmute for massive income

    Per this thread...

    http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/to...21952?page=1#1

    "We've recently seen a few questions regarding the functionality of Transmute: Living Elements and whether or not its effects are truly random. There's definitely some behind-the-scenes magic to this particular transmute, so we wanted to provide a bit more explanation on how it works.



    Typically, when you use Transmute: Living Elements, you will receive 14-16 random Volatile elements (Volatile Air, Volatile Earth, Volatile Water, or Volatile Fire) in exchange for 15 Volatile Life. If you use this transmute while in one of the new Cataclysm zones associated with the Elemental Planes, however, the element into which your Volatile Life will transform will be predetermined. For example, if you use Transmute: Living Elements while in Uldum, you will always receive Volatile Air for your efforts.



    Here's a list of the affected zones and their corresponding Volatile elements:



    * Mount Hyjal: Volatile Fire


    * Vashj'ir: Volatile Water


    * Deepholm: Volatile Earth


    * Uldum: Volatile Air




    Additionally, alchemists with Transmutation specialization will always receive bonus Volatile elements when completing this transmute. The bonus will be random, though, regardless of which zone you are in."

    What this means is your transmute for Volatile Life in certain zones will ALWAYS give you certain volatile elements. Currently on my server, Volatile Air is going for 45-75g per and Volatile Life is going for 15-20g per. This means I can go to uldum with 300 Volatile Life and leave with 300 Volatile Air (or more cause I'm xmute proc) and sell for 300% mark up!

    I haven't done this yet, but I will later tonight, and I think since this information isn't getting out there completely yet, we can cash in NOW. So... go to the zone that has the most expensive Volatile Element, and start Xmuting

    It looks like this is still on the 24 hour cooldown, however. So, you need to stay in Uldum for a few weeks.

    What if an xmute alchemist took volatile air into Uldum and did the xmute? Would you just get your air back and proc some extra goodies?

    Is that a shared xmute cooldown? Or are they on separate cooldowns now?

    Edit: Answered my own question. Gems are one cooldown and Living Elements share another with metals (pyrite and truegold). Imo, it's way more worth your time to xmute Truegold than do the Living Elements.
