This is a combine device. Mark it as such?

Recipes, I am pretty sure, are... in basic....

* Any of the 4 "yellow" Eternal Incandesscenses with a Chronobine to make Medial version of the same yellow Incandesscenses.

* Any of the 4 "yellow" Medial Incandesscenses with a Chronobine to make Seminal version of the same yellow Incandesscenses.

* Any 4th Tier (Medial level) armor where the armor was made with a "yellow" Incandessence can be combined (alone) (remove your augs!) to get the original Tier 3 Armor back as well as the "yellow" medial.

* Any 5th Tier (Eternal level) armor where the armor was made with a "yellow" Incandessence can be combined (alone) (remove your augs!) to get the original Tier 4 Armor back as well as the "yellow" Eternal.

It also also supposed to work as follows:

* Downgrading 2nd Tier Raid Armor yellow-gold essences (Coeval) into 1st Tier Raid Armor yellow-gold essence (Primeval), when the Coevla is combined with a Chronobine.

* Combine any 2nd tier raid armor made with a yellow-gold Primval essence to get the original primeval yellow-gold essence and 1st tier armor back.

The culling vortex is for dowgrading your luminescent of incandescent armor peice. You put the part in plus 1 chronobine and combine it to get the lower version.

I am only in Void D and I can buy bothe the Luminescent culling vortex and the Incandescent culling vortex from Zebuxoruk.

Or more clearly, you can DOWNGRADE a YELLOW-ORANGE Eternal into a YELLOW-ORANGE Medial, or a YELLOW-ORANGE Medial into a YELLOW-ORANGE Seminal.

Just combine the Eternal or Medial with a Chronobine.

Or more clearly, you can DOWNGRADE a BLUE Eternal into a BLUE Medial, or a BLUE Medial into a BLUE Seminal.

Just combine the Eternal or Medial with a Chronobine.

You cannot remove a luminessence from an inflicted armor piece.
You cannot remove an incandessence from an ordained armor piece.
And these do what?

Anyone got any clue what either of the culling vortexes are for?

If I had to guess, you could use it downgrade your Tier X armor to Tier X - 1 armor (removing the Incandessence [sic]), then recombine it to create a different Tier X armor.

Put an Inflicted Ashenheart Plate Bracer in this thing and hit combine and nothing but 'You cannont combine these items in this container type!'

I was hoping this was a container to convert a Luminessence to an Incandessence but no luck on that either (attempted with both medial and eternal).

edit -- these are indeed for removing the 'essences' from armour -- I was able to remove an 'essence' from a balanced bracer (teir 4) with this item and a the 'essence' from a tarnished bracer (teir 5) with the Luminescent Culling Vortex.

Which essence did you get in each case?

The culling vortexes are the reverse of what I would consider intuitive. The essence type returned is the opposite of the vortex type, so an incandescent culling vortex extracts a luminessence from the armour.

I can confirm this backwards system is still in effect. I used a Luminessence Culling Vortex to remove the Incandescence from my armor. Utter insanity!

Can confirm this is still the case. 2009-06-09 (9th June).
Had to use an Incandessence Culling Vortex to remove a Luminessence.

Actually you're all wrong :) The 2 slot Culling Vortex is used in downgrading essences. You combine 1 Eternal essence + 1 chronobine to get 1 Medial essence, or 1 medial+1 chronobine to get a seminal. The Consigned culling vortexes are for stripping the essences
And these do what?
# Jun 24 2009 at 3:29 PM Rating: Good
You can use this to do both, pull the essence out of armor or to downgrade an essence with the addition of 1 chronobine into the combine. The free ones from the Guild Lobby (consigned) can only be used to pull an essence out of a piece of armor.

Incorrect, the ones from the lobby allow you to downgrade as well.
