Dyes allow you to change the color of your various armor pieces. There are two types of dyes at this time:

  • Major Will apply to most areas of the armor and cover un-dyed accent region as well. (Note: some features cannot be dyed at all.)
  • Accent Will only apply to a smaller, predefined pattern area of the armor, unique to each armor set.

Dyes are single use but can also be traded or sold in the auction house. To use a dye, go to your inventory, select the dye and then select the piece of armor you wish to apply it to. Note that you must be wearing the piece of armor (though it does not have to match your current class).

Given variations in color reproduction of screens, and in-game lighting changes, colors may appear different.
