Transmutation in Salt and Sanctuary is when you convert a Weapon, Shield or Armor into another of the same type using the remains of Bosses and Enemies. You can Transmute a Weapon or Shield as many times as you wish, the only penalty being that you will lose 1 Upgrade each time you do this, meaning you can get a boss weapon at almost max level, just one item away from max. To do this you will need a Stone Alchemist in your Sanctuary. Below is a list of equipment that can be made from them:

There is no requirement for the transmute to show up at the Alchemist other than having the materials and weapon type required.

Boss Remains Weapons

These weapons are created with drops from Bosses.
