My dear, what you're wearing is much too drab. You absolutely must take a lesson in dyeing your tired attire!

The Dye Trader

Dyes are cosmetic items that can be placed in the Dye Slots of a player's inventory to alter the colors/textures of equipped Armor, Vanity items and Accessories. The Dye Trader NPC sells two dyes as well as the Dye Vat (5 Gold Coin.) The other Dyes must be crafted using the Dye Vat or obtained through trading in Strange Plants to the Dye Trader NPC. Primary crafted Dyes can be further combined to craft shade, gradient, and patterned Dyes. There are currently 110 (Desktop VersionConsole version) / 68 (Old-gen console versionMobile Version) different dyes in the game (109 / 67 on single player worlds, as Team Dye is not available in single player worlds).

Dyes are not available on the 3DS version 3DS version, due to the unavailability of pixel shaders.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • All vanity items will benefit from dye, with the exception of the Familiar set. The colors shown when wearing Familiar set can be changed using a Dresser instead.
    • The Familiar Wig will change the player's hair color when dyed. This allows for interesting Dye/Hair Dye combos.
  • Some dyes work with the Familiar Wig and will alter the color of the hair when applied. This effectively gives even more customization potential to player hair than was previously available.
  • When transformed into a werewolf or a merfolk by Neptune's Shell, Moon Charm or Moon Shell, any dye placed in the Dye Slots will color the werewolf or merfolk form's head, torso and legs as if they are Vanity items.
  • The dye crafting materials found naturally-placed can be placed again manually by players (eg. as decoration) excluding the Pink Prickly Pear. Green and Teal mushrooms as well as the Sky Blue Flower can be placed on any blocks. Orange Bloodroot must be hung from the underside of any block. Lime Kelp must be submerged in liquid. Enemy-dropped dye crafting materials cannot be placed (Red/Cyan/Violet Husks, Purple Mucos, Black Ink). When they are placed, they occupy space as a one tile, even though most of them look larger or taller than one tile (same happens to Strange Plants).
  • Basic and Combined Dyes only affect the hue of an armor's color, but not the saturation level (i.e. how vibrant the color is). This means that armor and clothing that are dull in color, such as Ninja clothes, Necro armor, and Reaper set are relatively unaffected by these dyes. Compound Dyes, however, override an armor's color completely, so they do not have the same problem.
  • Some white/silver colored clothing items, such as the Mrs. Claus Heels, will not dye properly with a basic dye, but will take on the desired color when a combination that features Silver Dye is applied.
  • Desktop VersionConsole version It takes at least 170 Strange Plants to obtain 15 of each dye (3 dye per plant) reward for 13 dye slots (Likely much more, since obtaining many repeat rewards from the Dye Trader is common.)
  • Desktop VersionConsole version Dyes with a small blue orb in their icon have a unique animation.
  • Desktop VersionConsole version The lid of a dye container seems to indicate some things about the type of dye:
    • A dark gray lid indicates basic dyes
    • A silver lid indicates Bright dyes
    • A blueish gray lid indicates multicolored/gradient dyes, with a deeper blue lid for Intense dyes
    • A checkered lid indicates a compound dye, with dark being __ and black, light being __ and silver, and bluish being __ flame and black
    • A green lid indicates glowing
    • A gold lid indicates the dye is reflective
    • A purple lid indicates animated dyes or other special effects
    • A red lid is reserved for Team dye
  • Dye also changes the appearance of the player's helmet on the map
  • Some dyes that have an animation - such as the Living Flame dye or Phase Dye - can cause mounts, railcars, and the Wisp in a Bottle to appear invisible
  • For some armors (such as meteor armor), the trails will reflect the dyes color. This means that if you have blue dye, pink dye, and yellow dye on an armor, it will split to where it shows trails of the three colors.
  • Oddly, there is no white dye, however bright silver can sometimes be an alternative.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • All dyes and items used to create them sell for 20 Silver Coin, so a beginning character should pick them up whenever encountered to sell them even if they aren't interested in the dye itself.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If not hunting for either specifically and a mechanical boss has already been defeated, it is more likely that one will acquire the Living Rainbow Dye before the Rainbow Dye due to Rainbow Dye's complex crafting tree.
  • The effect of the Hades dyes are a reference to the character Hades in Disney's 1997 animated feature film, Hercules.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.2: Introduced.
    • Items that were called dyes previously for crafting have been changed to thread.
