Some frequenters of Reddit have noticed something new and interesting in the GW2DB - Flame & Frost-themed dye packs. Considering these are packs, the chance of them being exclusive to the Gem Store is extremely high. However, that doesn't mean that we can't get the individual dyes other ways, right? What do you think our chances of seeing these colors as drops as well?

I've created a gallery for those that wish to see colors applied to each armor class, but if you're in-game, you can copy/paste these codes into your chat panel to see what your character would look like sporting them:

I can hardly tell the difference between most of the shades/hues of the dyes already. Just looks like more red, blue and greens to me.

Thank you for taking the time to make the gallery, though.

Hopefully these will be actual purchasable packs rather than more shit they dump into those *ing Chests.  I'm tired of having to gamble to get any of the cool shit from the gem store.

I love the blues and greens. Deep Glacial Teal looks a lot like Midnight Teal.

This. Cool stuff gem store, crap stuff in game. Im starting to wish microtransactions were never used in mmo's. Would rather have a set sub every month and have everything actually in the game available, and I hated subs....instead we have gambling and buying gold with your credit card or exclusive items not available in the game itself by just playing.

These are now available in the gem store, as well as an infinite mining pick!

The Infinite Mining Pick also have visual effects when mining (looks like a fiery fountain more or less)
