TOPIC: Legendary Transmute over mail

Legendary Transmute over mail 3 months 5 days ago #1

Okaaay. I have all the materials for a +5 deathcleaver. I've done a lot of transmutes over the mail, but nothing like this. I'm considering just waiting for Gencon to do the transmutes.

Pros of waiting until Gencon:
1) Would be cool to do it in person
2) I don't have to trust USPS to not lose it

Pros of doing it now:
1) Don't have to rush into the transmute area if I want to use it on an early run
2) ... I'm impatient.


Anyone have advice one way or the other?

I've had zero issues with USPS.

Alternatively, if you're close by someone who is going to Origins, they could transmute for you.

You could always buy additional insurance.

I have had a couple packages arrive fairly damaged, but in general, they have been fine.

Actually, I need the last 5k of gold from your auction :)

I'd be careful on this - I suspect insurance will want proof of value for a $1000+ claim - such as an invoice or receipt for the lost/damaged items.

On the plus side, I've transmuted at least a dozen legendaries through USPS with no problems yet.

If you are really paranoid you can send it registered mail. Registered mail is handled manually, and is transferred between safes/cages/sealed containers with locks and keys, and requires a signature on delivery.

Note: Registered mail is often slower than other types of mail due to manual processing.

If it were me I'd wait. I'm sure it would all work out but why tempt fate for something that could be done quickly on Thursday morning.

Wait until GenCon. Why tempt the Fates? Plus, it does actually feel great handing in Tokens and getting Dave to hand you your shiny Legendary.

Or LAZ

Insurance from USPS does not cover it the tracking says it was delivered and it did not show up.
Insurance cover damage or lost ( lost in their eyes is tracking stopped)

Ok, apparently I need to read the fine print about what insurance does and doesn't cover.

I would probably wait in that case.

Insurance is a scam,
Even if they end up
Paying it, it takes months
And you will spend hours
Verifying your claim.

I thought I had done a legendary through the mail, but looked over my orders and see I have done a few relics but never a legendary.

Fiiiine... I feel like I didn't emphasize the "I'm impatient" part enough, but based on response, I will try to wait.

See what runs I end up getting tickets for first and try to figure out if there is time to get it transmuted before the first one.
