The essences and primals have a very good reason for staying on cooldown.Someone with transmute mastery could just mass trasmute back and forth while reaping the benefits of extra procs.

If they take it off a CD they could remove the procs from it. Also I remember they are getting rid of most specialties in crafting (BS Tailor LW) not sure if that means Alchemy too. I like my procs but I would rather have certain things be off CD personally.

This doesn't explain why the older recipes aren't given their own unique cooldowns, as opposed to being tied to the central Alchemist 20-hour CD. My Tailor, for example, had *three* *separate* cloth cooldowns (just for Wrath cloth!). There should be no reason they can't implement something similar for Alchemists, but tiered by the level of the transmute.Also, it's inexcusable that the only way to see which items trigger the cooldown is to burn it, at which point if you guessed wrong, you're locked out of anything else you might have wanted to do 'til tomorrow.

They could keep the 20-hour cooldown, but make it a SEPARATE cooldown. There's no reason it should all be on the same one, never was. Hell, old-world transmutes don't even benefit from transmuting mastery, so that makes it even weirder they all share the same one.

"Hell, old-world transmutes don't even benefit from transmuting mastery,"Transmute: Arcanite benefits - my Tranmute Mastery alchemist has been cranking out Arcanite bars recently - incoming Thunderfury for my wife =) - and I've had multiple procs, including my one-and-only x5 result to date. And I am very glad that this one doesn't share the 20-hour cooldown.
