Transmutation is a sub-skill of Alchemy. It is highly valued since it allows the transmutation of some metals or gems into more valuable ones, and transmutation of some elemental items into harder to find ones. Some items in-game are only obtainable through transmutation.

Requirements

All transmutations require the alchemist to have a [Philosopher's Stone] or any of the variants of the [Alchemist Stone] equipped or in their inventory.

Most transmutations are on a shared cooldown. The length of the cooldown varies by recipe, but prevents all transmutations until it has expired (including those which would initiate a shorter cooldown). Of note, however, the following transmutations do not have a cooldown:

Transmutation Master

A transmutation creating 5 Primal Mights instead of one.
A transmutation creating 5 Titanium Bars instead of one.

"Allows an Alchemist to sometimes get greater results when transmuting materials" - When specialized as a  [Transmutation Master], there is a random chance that you create more than one item when transmuting. It's possible to get up to 5 items in a single process.

It has been reported that, when averaged, Transmutation mastery grants an increase in resulting items of about 20%. Given that a single transmute can result in up to 5 items, long stretches of "no additional results" may result.

Becoming a transmutation master prevents you from being a  [Potion Master] or  [Elixir Master], however you can switch at any time by speaking with the Alchemy trainer in Orgrimmar or Stormwind:

Essence Transmute Diagram

At 250 Alchemy, Alchemist Pestlezugg in Tanaris sells  [Transmute: Iron to Gold] and  [Transmute: Mithril to Truesilver]. At 275 he also sells  [Transmute: Arcanite] which is noteworthy because it has no cooldown.

At 275, one may learn all of the elemental essence transmutes which are depicted by the diagram and outlined in the table below. These transmutes enable an alchemist to convert one type of elemental essence into another.

At 300, players may obtain  [Transmute: Elemental Fire] from the Thorium Brotherhood with friendly reputation. This recipe does not initiate a cooldown.
