  • Dyes can be used to change the colour of your equipment.
  • You can apply dyes directly to your equipped armor, or you can apply them to items in your Wardrobe or Vault.
The Wardrobe allows you to save all dye colors applied to any piece of equipment, otherwise, only the specific item is dyed.
To dye an item in your Wardrobe, simply right click on the dye pot and then left click on the item you wish to dye.
  • The Dressing Room is used to check the colour effect on your equipment before using any dye.
ctrl + left-click on an equipment item to open your Dressing Room.
You can then preview any colour from the drop-down menu available.
Note: Some items cannot be dyed (example: the Rise of Isengard pre-order cosmetics). If an item cannot be dyed, you will not be able to change the drop-down menu for that item slot.
  • The primary source of dye is the Scholar crafting profession. A scholar can create dyes once they have learned a recipe for the particular dye colour and acquire the necessary components.
A few dyes are awarded as quest rewards. Dyes are also frequently available in the Auction House.

Dye Chart by tier

  • All dye ingredients are rare items from their respective fields and resource nodes, except for Yarrow Root-icon.png  Yarrow Root , Woad Plant-icon.png  Woad Plant and Indigo Plant-icon.png  Indigo Plant , which are themselves resources found around the world.
Example: a strawberry field will always produce a strawberry crop, but will rarely produce the juicy strawberry needed for red dye. Well-tended fields from critical farming successes increase the chance for rare items.
Black dye is a critical success from the rust dye recipe unless you have the Supreme tier improved black dye recipe from the Scholar's Guild.
