Spending

The most common use for Orbs of Transmutation is upgrading a normal item into a magic item, often as the first step in a longer crafting process. The resulting item may have a prefix, suffix, or both, each randomly rolled according to the possibilities afforded the original item, also taking into account its item level.

Finally, Orbs of Transmutation can also be used to craft a variety of low-level affixes onto items using crafting benches provided by Forsaken masters. This can provide a cheap but effective way to improve a player's equipment at low and medium levels, during which one does not want to invest too heavily into equipment since it will quickly be eclipsed at higher levels.
