In a new blog post, Destiny 2 developer Bungie has detailed how the transmog system coming in Season 14 works. Dubbed “Armor Synthesis,” this system will allow players to turn 10 pieces of armor per class, per season from their Collections tab into universal armor ornaments that can be applied to any piece of Legendary armor you have (in Season 14, players can transmog 20 armor pieces). This will make it much easier for players trying to put together one of the best Destiny 2 builds to use the armor fashion that they want.
Engaging with the Armor Synthesis system will be quite simple, and it involves interacting with Ada-1, who is returning in Season 14. Here are all of the steps you’ll need to complete:
- Defeat enemies to earn Synthstrand.
- Spend Synthstrand on bounties to earn Synthcord.
- Convert Synthcord at Ada-1’s Loom in the Tower into Synthweave.
- Use Synthweave to convert an unlocked armor appearance (Legendary quality or lower) from Collections into a Universal Armor Ornament.
Players can also buy Synthweave directly from the Eververse store with Silver (Destiny 2’s microtransaction currency) if they don’t want to go through this process or wait for a future season to transmog more armor, but it isn’t necessary.
What do you think of these changes? Let me know. The latest Destiny 2 expansion, Destiny 2: Beyond Light, is available now for $40 on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. The base game is free, so if you’re looking to try Destiny 2 out before investing any money, you can do so.
