This is a combine device. Mark it as such?

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

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

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

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

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

It also also supposed to work as follows:

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

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

The Culling Vortexes can also be used to Downgrade a Luminessence or Incadescence from a T5 or T4 to the next level down (both raid and group) by adding a Chronobine and doing the combine.

Example (I just verified this by completing the combine).
Fractured Coeval Luminessence (T4 Raid) + 1 chronobine in a Luminescent Culling Vortex = Fractured Primeval Luminessence (T3 Raid)

Be sure to note that this is the one from Zeb, not the one from Tavid Dennant - his is only a one-slot container.

Also note the "COLOR" of this Vortex.... it is for the blue medials and eternals.

You can use it to remove Incandessences from armor pieces which were constructed from one or more Incandessences including Inflicted, Tainted, Tarnished, Balanced, Chaotic, and presumably, Discordant. You cannot use it to remove an Incandessence from Concordant, Vested, or Ordained because they were constructed solely using Luminessences.

Combining a valid piece of Tier 4.5 or 5 armor in this container will result in an Eternal Incandessence of the appropriate armor type as well as the Tier 4 version of the armor. Combining a valid piece of Tier 4 armor in this container will result in a Medial or Coeval Incandessence and Tier 3 armor, and ostensibly combining a piece of Tier 3 armor would result in a Seminal or Primeval 'Essence.

The color of each Tier of 'Essence is not a factor: a Tarnished piece made with a Seminal Luminessence, a Medial Incandessence, and an Eternal Luminessence, is no different than one made instead with a Medial Luminessence and an Eternal Incandessence. You can use a Luminescent Culling Vortex to extract an Eternal Incandessence or use an Incandescent Culling Vortex to extract an Eternal Luminessence from any Tarnished or Tainted piece regardless of the original materials used to construct it. Same goes for removing Medial 'Essences from Balanced armor.
