As it stands, transmuting requires years of skilling to prof up to the point where high level items may be rerolled. The only people who can reroll the items are the players with high levels of transmuting skill... It seems to me that the people who badly want to reroll high level items are players who do not want to spend 5+ years skilling up the prof, and those who have spent 5+ years skilling up the prof don't badly want to reroll those items anymore...


However, the transmuting skill consists of two parts, 1) deconstructing an item into an essence, and 2) rerolling an item using an essence.

But what if we make it so that transmuting skill (rank) is only necessary to deconstruct an item into an essence? Then anyone can use said essence to reroll items.



In this way, essences can be bought and sold as "gambles" and high property good-type items will be valuable to all players as transmuting bases. I do believe this change would be considered major, but the implementation of it shouldn't be very hard... the main question to me is... is this a good change for the game? And of course, ultimately, Paul's decision if it is.

Transmuting and some other skills need to be changed in some way

Your suggestion would be a good middle ground, so why not

This is valuable input. Please vote in the “please don’t do this” category!

I also want to clarify something. I intend to skill up muting all the way whether this is changed or not, and as my primary motivation for transmuting is to suffusence with the essences, this change would most likely affect me negatively by making essences expensive for me to buy.

Nevertheless, I’m suggesting it because I feel like other members of the community would want this, but of course the poll is to find out if that’s true.

At first I was like "ofc I'd want that", but then it hit me that the price of the the essences will become way too high and it won't really be worth it unless you get them yourself :D

But it would still be fun to try a few

Both yes and now, this would at least bring back a way of gambling into the game, which actually would increase the popularity again.

I feel robbed on my prof for sure, even tho im not top top, but I am all for a gambling way to come back ingame!


Have my yes!





EDIT;

Another thing I'd want for muting is that the person who breaks down an angelic item would have a much higher chance of getin an angelic essence back.
Example;

60% chance of becoming Angelic
20% chance of becoming Mystical
15% chance of becoming Rare
5% chance of becoming Magical

This is an interesting idea. If all of the top muters to agree to this, I'll consider it, but note that it will make it that much harder to catch them since you're effectively halving the progress in this skill by removing half of it.

Maybe add some events that improve prof gain for skills and have it happen more frequently to compensate.
Getting high on skills should be achieveable in a reasonable amount of time. Game is now old enaugh to see that there must be some kind of change regarding the skill system

You get a good view on it if you check the lowest levels im each prof. They should be much higher after 10years

I’d love to see this implemented since it could potential increase the player base. People like to gamble! The more people gambling the more likely good items will drop again. Sure some high muters could be upset but they could also be making fg by selling the essences. I believe they would actually make more by selling essences than the time it takes to mute a decent item with the current player base who can mute high level times
