So I want to go weaver as a Doh class and I was weaving my **** off in ffxiv beta 3. I was only able to play for 3 days but i got conjurer up to 14 and weaver to 9 and a couple others to 3-4.

My problem is I cant find any information about these dyes. I saw several people with black cowls, white cowls, and some pink pants etc. But I couldnt find any information online or in game about where to get dyes.

Does a class like alchemist make dyes?

Are they npc bought?

Were they npc bought in the beta? Where?

Thanks all.

They are player made so you have to buy them from players. I think it's alchemy...could be others as well though.

I tend to think the dyes are player-made too, but so far I have yet to find any recipes...:(

I don't know about the recipe but you get a lot of the materials from mining (bugs, clays, etc) and probably some from harvesting as well. When the database was available you could see the dyes and various components that went into them.

yeah we are going to need to experiment a lot more in open beta so we can figure this stuff out...

Dyes are made from colored earth and animal parts found by quarrying in caves. It's part of the DoL Miner class and uses a Sledgehammer in your off hand.

Things i have found where colored earth, gravel, clay or even bug wings.

I am almost 100% sure they are used in Alchemy to make dyes.

Thanks for the info everyone. I'm definitely going to look into it as soon as open starts. I did see on some weaving pages it needing bug colored dye so that makes absolute sense. I guess ill be harvesting and mining as i rank up and farm for weaving crystals.

As of Beta 2 (when I was invited) dyes can be bought on NPCs in the West Hawker's Alley.


I was unable to take a finished piece of gear and dye it different colors (so far). Some recipes require that you add in already dyed cloth into the list of ingredients for the final synth.

I'm not sure how it'll end up being, but I can't imagine we wouldn't be able to take a finished piece of gear and dye it.

The way (again, so far) you dye cloth is to synth a square of cloth with dye in the ingredients. 2x Hempen Yarn with a Mole-Brown dye for example would make Hempen Cloth dyed mole brown.

I have to say that being able to dye your armor is such an awesome idea. So much more customization for your character and it will be awesome to eventually be at higher levels and not just see everyone wearing the exact same model gear (think haubergeon, scorpion harness, etc...). Just another small touch that makes this game really stand out.

This makes me so happy I am going with Alchemy and Weaving again.

So many people will want to color their armor and clothing.
I wonder what the higher crafted colors will look like (if there are any.).
I can't imagine them being a simple red or yellow.

Maybe they would be patterns.
Sorry, just thinking out loud. =X

As to the question how to apply Dyes:

1. Armorsmith can learn "Armor Painting" which is applied as enhancement.
2. Weavers can learn something similar but i forgot the name to dye cloth or other armor parts.

So far i have not seen a way to dye something after the item was finished.

May want to do some leatherworking as well. I noticed a few very low level synths needed leather for certain things.

Thank you for the heads up Tarutinkler, I will definitely look into that!
