What's the word on the proc rates and proc values for this transmute?
for other single item transmutes, whenever an xmute procced, it gave you atleast double, (given that 1 more then 1 is well, atleast double)
living elements, has just procced an extra 6 volatile earth, (with the initial 14) and doesn't really seem to be a fair transmute option for transmute specialized alchemists, since truegold proc accounts for "atleast double" the output.
Can we expect that many transmute procs will continue to garner us very few extras in proportion to the amount initially used?
(yay for awkward questions)
Here's the quote from Nethaera (fell a few pages); hope it helps:

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.
