Using accessory dye to change the color of your Enivi's accessories is a great way to add a special touch and a unique look to your character.

This guide will walk you through how to get the ingredients to create dye and then finally dye your accessory.

How to Obtain Dye

Dye can be crafted from various plants either found or grown by your Enivi.
Plants can be found through adventuring, exploring, and by some Companions. 

To grow your own, you can start a garden plot with seeds.

How to Dye an accessory

First, you'll need to own the accessory you want to dye. 
Some variations of accessories are already pre-created by staff, but don't worry, players are welcome to custom-create their own variations as well!

To create your own variation, recolor the accessory as you would a base or marking and submit the new design as you would with an Enivi.

Players may use more than one dye for a more colorful look and may make more than one change at a time.

Color Variations

Each dye has an assigned color and limits for that color. This section of the guide will help you determine if your accessory meets the requirements. 
As always, if you have a question, don't be shy! Feel free to reach out to us on the forums or in the Official Discord Server.

The wheel below shows a basic idea of what we consider each color to be. While some may fall in between this (and show different on different screens), color-picking between the accessory and the color wheel should help you decide if your accessory fits into the color's range.

Black and white can be a little more difficult when you start to get into ranges of pinks or light blues. As a general rule, if the hue shows approximately 50% of the color, it's no longer black or white.
This example shows white (top left) vs red (top right), and black (bottom left) vs blue (bottom right).

One thing to avoid entirely is using pure black or pure white, as these colors are too stark and not allowed.

Rules and guidelines

  • Any accessory can be dyed as long as it isn't marked as undyable.
  • Dyes cannot be used on companions or Enivi.
  • Color overlap is bound to happen. Sometimes a blue looks like purple or a yellow looks like green. We understand and will do our best to work with players to keep the dye system fair and fun.
  • Items must be dyed as they are, meaning players may not add additional patterns or parts to their accessories.

Now that you know how to make dyes and accessories, why not try your hand at customizing your own?
