Dyes are a material that can be used to change the color of items in armor or vanity slots.
Dyes are placed in a third item slot next to armor and vanity slots called "Dye". Placing a dye in the respective slot (i.e. helmet, body, and legs) will turn that part of armor into the color of the dye. Certain Strange Plant dyes can also add an animated effect. Dyes can be removed from the slot to return the armor/vanity items to their original colors. It is also possible to mix and match dyes, having certain pieces of armor different colors than others.
The Dye Vat works just like every other crafting station; stand over it with the necessary ingredients and click the dye you would like to make.
- Dyes cannot change the color of a player's Familiar Clothes.
- Dyes will still affect a transformed player (i.e.Moon Charm, Neptune's Shell, or Moon Shell).
- Dyes do not drop when a medium core character dies.
- There are 65 colors and conjoined sets of dyes.
- Silver Dye and Brown Dye can be purchased from the Dye Trader for 1 , As well as Shadow Dye and Negative Dye.
- All regular dyes Sell for 20 and have a rarity rating.
- Dyes won't stop the transparency caused from wearing Spectre Armor.
- Dye Ingredients are in the 3DS version, but are unable to get, since there is no Dye Section in the player inventory.
