Most loot armor and clothing (and some quest items that have the special property Dyeable) can be dyed various colors by using cooking skill to apply a prepared dye pot.
For the effects of applying dye to loot-generated armor, see the different types of Armor.

The process of creating a dye pot requires alchemy skill. Dye plants spawn randomly on the landscape (the plant links below have spawn maps) or are grown by a Herbalist (Terese). If you give her Little Green Seeds she will give you a plant in return (Thanamin for Tusker seeds and different colors for seeds dropped by various types of Shreth).

  • If you would like to add dyed variations of quest armor and clothing to your page, the Template:Dyed Variations might be of use.

Crafting Steps

  1. Crush the dye plant using a Mortar and Pestle. Difficulty: 150 Alchemy = 50% chance of success.
    • Mortar and Pestle Icon.png + Argenory Plant Icon.png = Crushed Argenory Plant Icon.png
    You crush the plant.
  2. Use a Neutral Balm on the crushed plant to create a vial of dye. Difficulty: 200 Alchemy = 50% chance of success.
    • Neutral Balm Icon.png + Crushed Argenory Plant Icon.png = Vial of Argenory Dye Icon.png
    You brew the dye.
  3. Use the vial of dye with a Cooking Pot to create a dye pot. Difficulty: 200 Cooking = 50% chance of success.
    • Vial of Argenory Dye Icon.png + Cooking Pot Icon.png = Argenory Dye Pot Icon.png
    You boil the dye.
  4. Finally, use the dye pot on the item you wish to dye. Difficulty: 230 Cooking = 50% chance of success.
    • Argenory Dye Pot Icon.png + Undyed Greaves Icon.png = Dyed Greaves Icon.png
    You apply the dye.

Items that can be Dyed

Fail Dyes

It is possible to fail a dye job if your skill isn't high enough. The result can be either a minor failure (color changes to pink for clothing or orange for armor) or a major failure where 20 Armor Value is lost (cannot go below zero). Some people find the fail colors desirable and will purposefully use a low skill chef (cooking must still be trained). The color of plant used doesn't matter.

NOTE: With the addition of Tailoring, it is now possible to safely "fail dye" your armor without the reduction of armor level.

  • Dyeing was introduced during the Twilight's Gleaming event.
  • When first introduced, dye plants were seasonal and only appeared on the landscape during certain months:
    • During the Twilight's Gleaming event, Hennacin, Berimphur and Verdalim plants were available.
    • During The Child of Daralet event, Argenory, Minalim and Lapyan were available.
    • During the Lost in the New Horizon event, Renalim and Colban plants became available. In addition, Thananim also became available with the introduction of Terese the Herbalist.
  • During the Should the Stars Fall event, Ketnan began exchanging the three dye plants available at the time for knock-off "Hoory" Mattekar Robes and Bludgeoning Swords.
  • During the Betrayal event, plants were changed to be no longer seasonal and now appear on the landscape all year round.
