Genshin Impact: How to Get and Use the Parametric Transformer
Genshin Impact has introduced many gadgets since its release in September 2020. And while they range from useful, useless, and event-specific, gadgets are there to make your life easier. One such gadget often overlooked is the Parametric Transformer. Its ability to give resourceful players some free rewards at the cost of dumping their unused items is often forgotten. In this guide, we look into the details of getting, using, and maximizing the benefits of the Parametric Transformer.
Getting the Parametric Transformer in Genshin Impact
To get the Parametric Transformer, players must complete the Tianqiu Treasure Trail quest in the Liyue region. This quest becomes accessible once players reach Adventure Rank 31. Lan, the quest giver is located near Katheryne's desk at the Adventurer's Guild in Liyue Harbor. Lan will guide players through a series of tasks that will reward players with the Parametric Transformer.
The Parametric Transformer is a device capable of transforming common or rare items into valuable bundles of resources. Items are assigned point values based on their rarity, with common items worth fewer points and rarer ones carrying higher values. The transformed bundles may include Mora, Character EXP materials, Weapon Enhancement materials, Character Ascension materials, Talent Books, and Weapon Ascension materials.
