What? How could you get a preview of an item you don't know you could get? The only way it's possible is for them to have a dye guy somewhere that will show you what every dye in the game would look like on your armor. Even then, it wouldn't matter at all. It's not like the RNG cares what it looks like on your armor. It gives it to you anyway. So the decision is either: to buy or not, when talking about getting them from the cash shop.
Oh, no no.
Okay, suppose I buy a dye pack.
Does it automatically poof unlock the colors for the character I bought it with? Doubtful. What if I bought it straight from the shop while not logged in game? (assuming that's possible).
That makes no sense at all.
No, you would be able to open the dye pack after you buy it
and see 3 identified vials
of dye in it.
As in you will know the exact names of the three dye you just bought before
you proceed to "use" them and have them unlocked on your character.Here
is where a "dressing room" preview sort of tool will be greatly helpful if it is to be character-bound instead of account; before you actually bind it to your character.
It would allow you to decide if this particular color is what you want on this character or another. If it is not at all a color you want, you can then choose to put it up in the market, even if you bought it with gems at the cash shop.
