    Yes, but it isn't guaranteed. The RNG is based on your level in the appropriate crafting skill line's extraction ability, as well as your Meticulous Disassembly CP ability.

    @kringled_1 nailed it.

    You can decon as many reconstructed pieces as the game allows but you won't get anything for it, ever.

    You only get trait mats from transmuted items (50 transmutes a pop) and not reconstructed ones.

    You also get them back from deconstructing nirnhoned items that drop in the wild, but there is no 100% guarantee. Those are meant to be used for trait research more than anything. This also applies to the one's you find in guild traders. Most of them are made to be used as training mats and not decon mats. You will rarely find them made in specific craftable sets and usually for a ton of gold

    to obtain Nirncruxes from the excessive Transmute Crystals you have you to:
    1. Craft or obtain the necessary gear pieces from the mobs drops or buy gear.. this does not matter much
    2. TRANSMUTE them into Nirhoned trait (not reconstruct, but transmute for 50 Crystals a piece)
    3. Decon them transmuted items
    You get Nirncrux with roughly 50% chance on the character with maxed deconstruction skills

    i don't have enough proof Green CP "Meticulous Disassembly" affects gear deconstruction
    (though it definitely impacts raw material refining), but i slot it anyway when at Crafting Stations

    Also make sure you have all the crafting passives and Meticulous Disassembly CP for best chance.

    The nirnhoned pieces that are specifically meant to be researched are called Exemplary. They do not drop in the wild. They are exclusively granted as a one-time reward from the final quest of the Craglorn main questline. (The specific item is random, but the nirnhoned trait is guaranteed.) They can be equipped without being bound as well.

    Nirnhoned pieces that drop in the wild come only from very limited content (certain trials and arenas). These are not specifically intended for research (they are not Exemplary) and may be used, researched, or deconned freely. These are also all BoP, with the usual 2-hour trading timer if gotten with other group members present. People running these pieces of content repeatedly may well be deconning most of their nirn drops on sight, especially if they have already researched that trait on that piece or don't have an interest in doing so.

    Greetings,

    We have gone ahead and moved this thread to a category we think is more suitable for this topic, Crafting.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    If you are planning to use the nirnhoned gear for research, DO NOT decon it. Instead, craft the item you want to research and then transmute that. It removes the chance of having a loss of crux from deconning the item if you plan to just make a different piece for your toons. Just something I learned while doing trait rese4arch for my alts.

    Ignore this. I am dumb. XD It turns out you can't research transmuted or reconstructed gear. So, you still have to decon it for the crux before creating researchable items. And here I thought I was being smart. XD

    EDIT: Want to apologize for the inaccurate information. Was not my intention to present wrong info. Sometimes I get excited and overthink things and get ahead of myself.
