  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 The Spoils of the Shore armor sets consist of only three items each, so two Class Items are also sold along with them.



Ada sells Armor Synthesis bounties that cost Glimmer1.png10,000 each. Bounties are grouped by the activity types in which they can be completed, with a random bounty from that category being obtained after purchasing it. A character can hold no more than one Threader bounty of each type at a time.

Completing a bounty rewards 100 of a Synthcord currency corresponding to the character's class. The player must then use the Loom near Ada-1 to convert the Synthcord into 1 class-specific Synthweave item (as well as a small amount of Glimmer1.pngGlimmer). The player can complete no more than 10 Threader bounties per class during a single season.
