A second batch of dyes are crafted by any level 30 crafter class.
A third group of dyes are only available from ARR Tribal Vendors.
A fourth set of dyes are bought from Enie in The Firmament (12,14) with Skybuilders Scrip Skybuilder's Scrip from the Ishgardian Restoration, or from the Horrendous Hoarder with Seafarer's Cowrie Seafarer's Cowries from Island Sanctuary.
Lastly, General-purpose or BGreen dyes are only acquired very rarely from Quick Exploration Retainer Ventures (via the Venture coffer icon1.png  Venture Coffer lootbox).

These last ones have an untradeable equivalent that can be bought on the Final Fantasy XIV Online Store for real money and produce the same colors.

All but the last set are always singular flat color tones. A subset of the last set (in the Dye window grouped as the last set also) offers colors with a metallic shining look.


To dye a piece of armor, click on the Dye (action) icon1.png  Dye icon in the Actions & Traits menu or right-click the desired equipment and select the Dye option.

  • Dyes can be removed from armor by using the item named Terebinth icon1.png  Terebinth, bought from a dye vendor.
