We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Solar Dye is a Hardmode, endgame dye crafted from Solar Fragments dropped by the Solar Pillar from the Lunar Events. The dye gives a golden, metallic hue to anything used with it, similar to the Reflective Dyes obtainable from the Dye Trader's Strange Plants quest. Unlike the Metallic dyes, however, items dyed with Solar Dye do not appear to dynamically reflect light, and have the same appearance regardless of the player's proximity to light sources. Also unlike the metallic dyes, dyed items periodically glow (without casting light).
