Introduced in the Season of the Splicer (Season 14), Transmogrification is now available for all Guardians, a process that enables Guardians to wear any armour appearance on their currently equipped legendary armour set! Ada-1 has returned to the Tower and, with the help of Guardians, has secured unique Braytech secrets allowing her to create a device she refers to as The Loom.
The Loom creates a material known as Synthweave, which when used on armour, converts it to a Universal Ornament, allowing Guardians to use their armour appearance whenever they wish!
To get started, visit Ada-1 in the Tower Annex.
Ada-1 will initially provide Guardians with a quest to create their first set of Synthweave. Going forward, however, there is a process required by Ada-1 in order to create the material necessary for your Universal Ornaments. Most common, rare, and legendary armour pieces can be converted to a Universal Ornament!
Coming in Season 15: Ada-1 is removing the Synthcord requirement for bounties. Instead, the cost to acquire bounties is 10,000 Glimmer per bounty!
As an alternative route, Guardians may visit Tess Everis in the Tower to purchase Synthweave Templates for 300 Silver for one template or 1000 Silver for five templates.
Threader bounties are offered to Guardians that reward Synthcord, the necessary material that can be converted to Synthweave. Each bounty costs 150 Synthstrand and Guardians can only hold one bounty at a time. Each bounty has a randomized objective.
Note: Fellow Guardians recommend focusing on Vanguard or Crucible Threader Bounties, depending on your preference of gameplay, as the objectives are more straightforward compared to the other bounty choices.
To assist Guardians with their armour collections, Ada-1 offers a full set of armour with fixed stats each week. The Stats are randomized and may be purchased with various materials.
To stay ahead of the competition, Ada-1 now also offers daily exchanges of rare materials and mods for Guardians to purchase. Items available here rotate at each daily reset.
Access the Armour Customization page via your Character Inventory Menu. From there, you have access to a page that enables armour customization. A video has been provided for your reference!
As of Season 14, all acquired shaders are automatically unlocked – there is no cost to apply shaders on your gear! You can apply your shaders to each individual armour piece, or alternatively – in the armour customization page, you can use the Apply to All button to instantly apply the specified shader to all of your armour pieces!
Several Year 1 armour ornaments are currently unavailable due to “technical constraints,” but Bungie is working hard to provide a solution to this in a “future Season”. You can find the full list of what’s missing below:
Most common, rare, and legendary armour pieces can be converted to Universal Ornaments. Due to the capabilities of exotic armour, they cannot be converted.
