KA Purple Adornment Details

At the completion of the "Time is Short" subquest for the Kunark Ascending Crafting Epic, a crafter will receive and autoscribe two purple adornment recipes. One of these recipes will be only craftable by their crafting class, the other is a recipe that is shared with their entire subclass (craftsman, outfitter, scholar).

While these runes have lovely set bonuses, they are lore-equip, so adventurers wanting the set bonuses will need to seek out crafters from more than one crafting class.

The recipes need to be crafted on the Forge of Brell (house item version is fine), and require a Blank Luclinite Rune, 3 thalumbral root, 3 umbrite, 3 bornite nodule and 5 thaumic fuel. Crafters receive two runes during the epic quest, and additional runes can be obtained from completing the Twark weekly "Snacky Snacks". The fuel required varies based on the recipe. (The sage-specific recipe, for example, uses thaumic incense while the scholar-specific recipe uses thaumic coal.) The runes and the purple adorns are fully tradeable, and the recipe can be commissioned for added protection during a trade/purchase.

First, here is a quick-reference list of recipes by crafting class:

And now for a more detailed look at the four sets of adornments, their bonuses, and what crafting class creates the specific adornment. (Additional summary help thanks to Lojask of AB):
