The Parametric Transformer is a new item that was introduced to Genshin Impact in update 1.3. It is a very interesting item, although a little mysterious at the moment.
The Parametric Transformer allows you to input materials and transforms them into another material. This can yield interesting results, and important items for character progression can be generated from items that don’t have much importance or are abundant in the game.
How to get the Parametric Transformer
To get the Parametric Transformer, you will need to complete the Tianqiu Treasure Trail world quest. You can get this from Lan near the Adventurer’s Guild in Liyue Harbor. Once the quest is complete, you will have the Parametric Transformer in your inventory, in the Gadgets section.
How to use the Parametric Transformer
Go to the Gadgets section in your Inventory and equip the Parametric Transformer, then place it on the ground. You can do this anywhere. Now, interact with it to bring up a menu showing lots of items from Inventory. These can be items that drop from enemies, regional specialties, and even common items like Sunsettia, Berries, and the like.
Each items has a different quality level, and you need to place in items that will bring the overall Quality count to 150.
- 1 Quality: Materials dropped from enemies below level 40, common fruits, resources, etc.
- 2 Quality: Materials dropped from enemies level 40+
- 4 Quality: Materials dropped from enemies level 60+
When the device is full, you need to hit it with elemental attacks from your characters until the progress bar hits 100%. You can use any Elemental Skill or Bursts to do this, so cycle through your party until it is complete.
When it is finished, the Parametric Transformer automatically returns to your inventory, and you will receive items like ascension materials, talent ascension materials, Hero’s Wit, Enhancement Ores, and more.
There does not appear to be any rhyme or reason to what you get right now, but we have only been able to experiment with it once. The item will have a week-long cooldown before you can use it again. There also seems to be little reason to put the harder to get items in the Parametric Transformer, but we will need to wait and experiment with it more before we can really draw any conclusions about that.
