    By John Ryan2016-07-19 00:00:00

    You may not care what color your armor is in MMOs as long as you’re not interested in creating a garish scene, but rest assured that there are a lot of players out there who want more variations in the hues and tones of their outfits. The ability to customize your character’s costumes is coming soon as the Elder Scrolls Online new dye system will arrive to the game as part of Update 11. For those people who want more variations in ESO, they now have a new costume dye system with which to experiment.

    Our site, have already given full launch details of the Elder Scrolls Online Update 11 recently. Now here comes more details of the ESO's long-anticipated costume dye system! This new system will bring to you a huge amount of variations of costumes and hats, which will enable you enjoy the game even more.

    There are two different ways to dye costumes and hats. Let's take a closer look at the two methods.

    Costume Dye System

    ESO Plus Costume Dyes (Exclusive to ESO Plus)

    Customers with active ESO Plus memberships can customize equipped costumes and hats at any Dye Station in the game, using the clothing dyes you've unlocked by completing in-game Achievements. Dyed costumes and hats are saved exclusively for each of your characters, so the same piece can have a different appearance for each of your characters.

    Simply approach any Dye Station in Tamriel, equip the costume and/or hat you wish to dye, and open the new Costume Dying tab. Select the dyes you'd like to use from your palette of unlocked Achievement dyes, and when you're contented with the appearance, save the item and enjoy your customized masterpiece!

    You can define sets, copy a color, or clear an applied color to return your item to its original appearance just as you can with our armor dyeing system. You can also sort your unlocked colors by rarity or hue. Hovering over a locked color will show you the achievement you need to complete in order to unlock it.

    If your ESO Plus membership lapses, you will still retain your hand-dyed costumes and hats, but you won't be able to modify them again until you renew your membership.

    Dye Stamps (Crown Store)

    Players without an ESO Plus membership can also dye costumes and hats by purchasing Dye Stamps in the crown store. These one-time-use consumable items were designed by Tamriel's finest fashion designers, and feature the convenience of aesthetically-pleasing pre-selected color combinations.

    You'll find them in the Crown Store's “Dye" category, starting at 50 Crowns. All Dye Stamp items' names are prefaced with a name for that group of Dye Stamps. This will help identify which week the Dye Stamp belongs to long after it was purchased, and keep similarly-hued Dye Stamps together in your inventory or bank. New Dye Stamps will appear in the Crown Store every week, so check back often!

    During the time period between when a new update appears on PC/Mac and console, the Dye Stamps will remain the same.

    Each Dye Stamp can be applied to a single equipped costume and/or a single hat. Dye Stamps are stackable, allowing you to purchase multiple versions of the same stamp and store them in stacks in your inventory or bank, for later use. To apply a Dye Stamp to an active costume, simply use the item in your inventory. This allows you to preview the colors before you accept the changes. The Dye Stamp won't get consumed until you actually apply it.

    You do not need to have the colors associated with a specific Dye Stamp unlocked via the Achievement System in order to use them, but please note that Dye Stamps do not include rare-quality Achievement dye colors.

    The dye system will be introduced with update 11, which is scheduled to launch August 1st on PC and August 16th on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.


    Some Feedback

    Extra customization options are always a good thing, especially if you end up wearing the same costume as another player. The restrictions for free players don’t seem too unfair, and the price for the Dye Stamps is very reasonable. Overall, this new dye system looks like a good addition to the game. How deeply do you customize your character? Are you looking forward to this new dye system, or do you not even bother with the costumes? Feel free to let us know below.
