Epic Quest 5: The Proof in the Pudding

This is the fifth segment of the crafter epic quest and is available to all crafting classes once they have completed their version of the Errands quest. (Yayyy, you're in the home stretch now!)

Speak once again with Neeta after receiving your class-specific recipe, and she will ask you to obtain nine different items (one from each crafting class) so that she can try to recreate the famous solstice earring. Since each item is heirloom, you will need to work with other crafters via the commission system if you don't have all nine crafting classes mastered on the same account. Don't fret if the quest items in your shared bank disappear when you log in - they should properly update the quest as they "poof". (The required quest items that are in your bags may lurk around until you visit Neeta, but the main thing is if the quest journal updates.)

You say, "Hail, Neeta Cabbageleaf"
Neeta Cabbageleaf says to you, "Hiya again! Thanks for all your help. I've looked over everything, and based on the information you and others have brought me, I believe I can make an earring very similar to my grandmother's original. I'd be happy to make you one too, if you can bring me the items her recipe requires. Interested?"
You say to Neeta Cabbageleaf, "Of course! What do you need?"
Neeta Cabbageleaf says to you, "You'll need to find some other crafters to help you make some of these on commission, but cooperation is good for making friends, right? Bring me one of each of the items I've listed in your notebook there."
You say to Neeta Cabbageleaf, "I'll be back."

So, Just What Do You Get From All This?

On top of getting to know some of your fellow crafters, and proving to adventurers that you can be just as crazed about epics as they are, you are rewarded with: an Earring of the Solstice, one of each tier 8 rare, and a Master ____ prefix title. (You will be mailed a Master crafter certificate specific to your class from a representative of your city's crafting society, and your title will not appear until you retrieve the certificate from your mailbox.)

In addition, master crafters who have the Earring of the Solstice either in their bags or equipped will be able to see red glowies for special tradeskill collection quests.

But wait, there's more ...
