When I got the 5 any lvl transmutation stones, I was really surprised actually. I thought I'd have to save gold for gems for Tstones. Going to save these so I can transmutate something when I'm lvl 80 :D

Problem is the black lion trading is not open. I remember during BWE that it was sold via Karma Vendor. But also heard rumors that Arenanet took it out because they wanted to earn real life cash out of it thus placing it in the gem store and not allow karma point purchases.

I got up to lvl 79 Transmutation Stones from completing zones and daily achievements. No lvl 80 ones so far.

Transmutation stones haven't been on karma vendors since around the end of BWE 1 because they didn't fit something in ANet's vision.  Something about how they scaled.  If you recall, there used to be many other types of transmutation stones, which would transmute between 1 and some level, with higher max level stones costing more karma.

Was happy to see such an item back then in karma vendor.
Now it really sucks to have to keep buying gems for it.
For me looks is really important, the ones they gave for completing zones are hardly enough.

ok so let me just confirm this really quick: you can NOT purchase transmutation stones with Karma at a Karma vendor - correct?

thanks in advanced.

You can't. Either random from Black Lion chest, or via gems from Cash Shop.

And you can also trade gold for gems, so no cash is required to get transmutation stones. :)

i see what you are saying Giles but i dont really consider this that much of an option as the exchange rate currently is 1g 51s for 100 gems.  maybe one day when the prices are more favorable for the gamer on a budget.

Ah ok, well I'd say completing low level zones on high level characters is your best shot then. :)
