Alchemy Gem Transmute Recipes gone in 4.0.1
I leveled alchemy on a second toon just for gem supply only to discover the epic gem transmute recipes are gone from the trainer. Then I found this article.
Quote:No, not the ones you already know.
Just the ones the trainer has to give you if you are leveling the Alchemy Profession now.
This is a major issue for anyone that is thinking of taking Alchemy, or who is in the process of learning Alchemy. Once you hit level 450, all existing recipes turn grey. Previously, at 450, the Epic Gem transmutes were made available for purchase, you trained those, and there was also the quest offered by the trainer to learn the Transmute of Cardinal Rubies… that requires 5 Epic Gem Transmutes to turn in.
You can’t complete the quest, because you can’t get the Epic Gem Transmute recipes anymore.
Is it a bug? Is it intended?
There is absolutely no way of knowing at the moment, because there has been zero response from Blizzard on this issue to date. No Blue forum posts, no Patch notes, and multiple in game tickets have gone unanswered, or answered with “Geez, I dunno, is there anything else I can help you with? Please fill out our survey.”
There has literally been nothing but silence from Blizzard concering an issue that has crippled a Profession for anyone training it right now.
Posts entered into the official US forums concerning this issue are not only being ignored by Blue posters, but I have confirmed that even very politely framed requests for help or information are simply being deleted by moderators… much as the posts about being hacked that were entered into the Customer Service forum used to be when Blizzard took no response in years past, before they stopped pretending it wasn’t happening and developed an actual customer service response.
