Converters (commonly referred to as gobblers) are a type of gizmo that provides bonus rewards in exchange for a currency or item. Many converters have a maximum limit for uses or transactions per day. Once used up, players must wait until the server reset to obtain more rewards. Using multiple copies of the item will not allow access to additional rewards, since all copies of an item share the same limit for an account.

List of converters[edit]

Instant converters[edit]

These converters immediately consume crafting materials or currencies on use, if having these cost items in your inventory, producing an instant reward such as booster effects or packaged goods.

  • The first converter introduced into the game was Mawdrey II, primarily to drain the surplus of Piles of Bloodstone Dust acquired by accounts.
  • Crafting material converters are called "gobblers" internally by the ArenaNet team.[1]
