"This means that, although cooldowns will be an issue, the prices of the various Eternals should be roughly on par with each other, since they'll all be convertible into each other with significantly less trouble than is the case now."I don't think this will be true. Like it is now, I expect most of the 'Eternals' to come from other things than transmutations, so there will always be price differences. And that means you have to be crazy not to do the most profitable one every cooldown (currently earth -> water on my server).It's the gathering that determines the price of these items, transmutation just gives alchemists some quick cash. Maybe they've perfectly balanced all the drops of these eternals, but that would completey remove the point of transmutation! (Gems aside).

Actually, that would change the point of transmutation. Let's say I'm questing in an area that drops Eternal Life, but I need Eternal Fire for my new recipe. I have my Eternal Life, and I find an alchemist to transmute it for me. That way it saves me time, and the alchemist gets a tip. It's still not a 4g Primal Earth to 34g Primal Water transmute that helps alchemists a lot, but it's more balanced for non-alchemists.
