This topic shall not be centered around the aquirement of the dyes (shop, drops, mystic forge,...) or the cost or anything like the previous thread about dyes.


I would like to make a suggestion about the actual system in the hero-panel, where we can see all of our collected dyes.

One thing that really bugs me is that I am not really able to see which colors are new/ which ones I (don't) already have. It is really annoying to have to compare the own list to a wiki-list and count the different shades of red/ blue/ ...

I would like to have a system kind of like the storage panel for crafting stuff and minipets where you can see the box (grayed out) and then, when you find the dye it fills up.
The dye-box could blink/ highlight up when you add the dye to your panel.
Maybe there could be an option to sort "obtained" from "unobtained" dyes. That way it's not too annying for people who don't want to see all the gray boxes..

That would have some advantages:
1. You can see which color is missing and you don't have to comb through 400 dyes on the wiki.
2. You know when you are "done" collecting.
3. For the collectors among us it is a big goal to fill up all the boxes :D


I hope you like the idea. Maybe anet could consider this - it's a small thing that would make a difference in my opinion :wub:

This is actually something I hadn't thought of but now that you bring it up it is really weird that there isn't a way to see what dyes you don't already have in game.  It seems like it would be a really simple thing to add too.

Should probably be all the color of dyes there and the ones you don't have are grayed out. Just so you know how many there are and how many you have.

that's exactly what I meant - but I probably didn't write that as clear :unsure:

while they said they didn't want players collect dyes I think it's not gonna stop people from collecting them, so why not make it a bit more convenient  for the players to see what dyes they're missing.

I completely agree. I am quite surprised that they don't have something along these lines already in the game. I'm not much of a dye collector myself, but I can definitely see the need for this if you are!

Idea is not bad. I will really appreciate something along those lines, but even if ANet would like to add this feature, it will not make it to the release. They are already working now on armor previewer and release date is just around the corner. Although maybe a month or two after release we could see it if we insist on adding this ;)
Also option of 'obtained' and 'unobtained' dyes is a must! I can't imagine how could anyone scroll through +/- 400 dyes if he/she got only 10 or so.
