Dying Menu

Dyeing is the application of dye to gear to change its color.


Before Players can dye their gear, they must complete the quest Feature QuestColor Your World in Vesper Bay (X:12.6 Y:14.3) of Western Thanalan by speaking to the NPC Swyrgeim, or Feature QuestA Self-improving Man from Wiscard in Mor Dhona (X:22.1 Y:6.7). Only one of the two quests can be completed and there is minimal difference between the two.

Color Your World requires the player to deliver Orange juice icon1.png  Orange Juice to Swyrgeim. Players can purchase a bottle of Orange Juice from the Merchant and Mender (X:12.1 Y:13.8) in Vesper Bay.

A fourth set of dyes are exclusively bought from Enie in The Firmament (12,14) with Skybuilders Scrip Skybuilder's Scrip from the Ishgardian Restoration.
Lastly, General-purpose or Green dyes are only acquired very rarely from Quick Exploration Retainer Ventures (via the Venture coffer icon1.png  Venture Coffer lootbox).
