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!
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.

Most common, rare, and legendary armour pieces can be converted to Universal Ornaments. Due to the capabilities of exotic armour, they cannot be converted.
