Gah ive been hoping for those colours for so damn long, they can turn ANY armor set epic...even the coutry set :3
Ya, definitely!  The white & black dyes are obviously the more expensive to buy it took me a while to get them.  But, the white gold is cheap to afford I've had that one for ever.

The first set is the 42 k karma set you can buy in Orr except the gloves (don't ask me which ones, I don't know that much ,especially about medium armor).

The Asura is the feathered armor (tailor silk crafted) except the leggings which are the country pants and get be found as loot in low level zones

The last is the Draconic armor (Armorsmih exotic crafted).

Dyes are not too expensive now, even the rare ones, as long as you know what you want and not try to be completist about it.

abyss with burgundy dye is pretty good if you find the right armor to use. It gives a 'goth' and dark feeling.

I really love the dye system in this game. My plan is to get all the dyes at some point on my ranger who is my most played character. So far I have maybe about a hundred or so of which I've bought like 2 or 3 that I really wanted. I even had a black one drop at one point which I promptly used even though I don't care for the actual colour so much.

Recently I've been playing my elementalist and a dye combo with that character is really what got me posting on this thread:

Attached File  Midnight Yew, Antique Gold, Spring Leaf.png   498.24K   104 downloads

Here's my elementalist in tier 1 Norn cultural armour and the Ebonhawke cultural staff. I love this combination and it seems to work very well with the armour and the green tattoos on my elementalist. Green is my favourite colour and I use it very much on the elementalist because of the her tattoo colour. I was very pleased to find a 3 colour combo that worked because usually I only go for 2 colours. I used midnight yew, spring leaf and antique gold for this combination.

Next time quote me, so I see you wanted an answer, now I just saw you with luck. :)
This is my main Guardian wearing:
  • CoF (Citadel of Flames) helmet
  • Orrian (42k karma) shoulders
  • Draconic (lvl400 armorsmith exotic) all other pieces
All of them are dyed with Sand (gold color) and Pastel Sea (white color) as I saw fit. :)

Thanks! I'm a big fan of your character with the gladiator/knight style armor. At least the sort of Greco-Roman helm crest makes me think "gladiator." I've always loved knights in shining armor, so the primarily silver & gold scheme is a classic. That icing dye looks terrific for plate, it really brings out the details - I feel like celestial and abyss black are so intense they wash away finer points.

I'd recommend people trying for white and black actually take a look at charcoal/midnight anything (which will give a hint of color) and blue ice.

If you want real white without the details being washed away you should try Pastel Sea, look at a earlier post of mine in this thread.
Pastel Sea is more white than that blue ice (which has a blue hint in it). :)

I don't get the core of the OP post. It's a pointless question. Various armors behave differently using a dye instead of an other. Example? Arah armor. When abyss can makes an other armor black, arah armor goes a kind of gray, exact same color you get with an ubercheap "iron dye". I never found a real, total black color for arah armor. The best i found was a very dark grey, absolutely not a black color. :mellow:

Blacks, whites, reds, blues, browns, metallics

When I first saw that, I thought the afro was a halo.

Anyway, the best red, and one I didn't see mentioned while glancing through this thread, is Heirloom.

But with the variation in tones between different skins, the "best" looking colors will vary between skins.

I normally wouldn't choose purple at all but I reckon it looks pretty sweet.

It depends a lot on the material you use it on too. The same dye can be very different on cloth, leather and metal. Generally I'm very careful with white dyes. White only looks natural on cloth imho. On metal is most certainly the hardest combination.

Yeah, I use Ice Black or smth on my mesmer and it's even darker than Abyss, it really depends on the materials it's used on.

Here's a compilation of human female armor looks and locations. Male armors look almost the same as females in almost every case. Sylvari and Norns will look like humans in general in the armor.

And an older image of my characters. If anyone is curious about dyes/armor combos just ask. Most are common from what I recall.

Hmm, lot's of high-contrast splashing of colors.....that won't get you into the Ash Legion.

I have to represent the other end of the color-scale, the shades of gray and pale colors :)

I have only found 1 non-gray colour that I really like: Forgiveness, nice name too. And I'm not even a fan of green, but it looks like its behind a veil of mist. Let's see if the screen-shots show any of that:

Thief (Gray, Black, Forgiveness, Night Iris)

Posted Image
(Todo: have to find better looking gloves)

Elementalist (Ebon, Matte, Silver Lead, Forgiveness)

Posted Image


The color differs alot from piece to piece on the elementalist, so I'm not completely happy about that. Did recently use several colors of light blue...maybe it suit her better...

I have two sets of armor (three sets actually, 2 of which I change my color frequently), which use quite different combos. One set go with darker and scarier color selection and the other one looks softer and more fun. Excuse my crappy computer :(

First set: Midnight Ice & Blood

Second set: celestial & lemon ice dye (I think this is the one?)

The difference between Midnight Blue and Midnight Ice is pretty huge, a lot of detail is lost when you use the more expensive dye.
