The hype for this is real!!! So excited for this change.
Does this mean I can re-trait my gear to Nirn without any nirncrux?
no. you will need all the craft mats you normally would when creating a piece of gear
You must first have finished researching that trait you want to be able to use and have that traits gem stone in inventory or craft bag. Transmutation isn't a free upgrade, only a way to adjust trait for that piece of set gear you have got. You can only do this ONCE on that item, so be sure that it is really the correct trait when you change trait, and it will be bound to your account.
After you have transmuted an item it will have a symbol which is there to tell you that it is now not possible to sell or transfer to another account like helping out a friend to get the perfect set with right traits.

It is possible to improve quality of an item from white, green, blue, purple up to golden as transmutation doesn't change how traits will work when there is a trait on an item. They will work exactly like before with better stats related to what quality there is on an item and nothing else. On weapon it is still enchantment that need to be changed with the right runes to get a higher quality enchantment and it is independent from transmutation the same way is it where before change of trait. If trait is improving effect from enchantment it will work the same way as before.
it does not say anything about jewerly......

You cannot transmute Jewelry because you cannot learn jewelry traits
Thats what I was afraid of, this does nothing more than slightly decrease the farming of certain drop sets.
Yes it does "Players cannot transmute Jewelry traits"
transmute only ytaits? what about style?

How is it pay to win? You can get the gear from drops, and you can not only get your own transmute station to put in your house, but you can visit other people's houses and use theirs.
I don't think you know what "Pay to win" means
You're a *****ing moron
can transmutation crystals be sold?
Transmutation Crystals are delivered in containers which is bound. Those containers can not be moved to bank or used in any other way. You need to open up container and "use" crystall which means they will be accumulated much the same way as other in game token (Gold, AP etc). The main difference is there is a limit for how many you can store (stack) before you reach a limit and can not make use of those containers content if you don't transmute anything at all.

In short: Crystals are token that can only be used to transmute items at Transmutation Station. They can not be sold and are only collected on account after you have open container and taken out (use) those Crystals. You get Containers with Crystals from finishing content both in PvE and PvP.
"Players can only transmute gear that belongs to themselves or is not bound. This means that you cannot ask someone to transmute a "bind on pickup" item for you."

"When you Transmute an item, it will be bound to you. You cannot Transmute an item that is bound to another player."

wat?
after you transmute an item can you upgrade it to a higher quality?
Whoever wrote this should be aware that it contradicts itself by saying "other players can transmute your gear so long as it is not bind on pickup" and then "No, when you transmute something, it is bound to your account" the top leads us to believe we can have bind on equip gear transmuted by others.

I see the Transmute Crystal page wasn't updated - Fixed, thanks for the heads up. In the future, you can do this yourself by hitting the top-right "edit" button! :)
