Once acquired, a dye can be applied to a piece of equipment by doing the following:

  • Press I to bring up your inventory.
  • Double-click on the dye you want to use.
  • The combine panel will appear.
  • Drag the item you wish to dye into the right slot.
  • Click combine.

If the item can be dyed, the combination will succeed. This will give your item the coloration of the dye you used, letting you create a fancy color scheme for your characters. Be aware that using a dye will consume it, so make sure you want to use it on your chosen item. This also means you must acquire several dyes to create a color-coordinated outfit.

How to Remove Dye from Gear

If you want to undo the effects of a dye, you’ll need to find an additional item: Dye Remover. This can be located during your adventures if you loot every box you come across. You should check in with traders you meet for a more direct source. Be aware that the icon for Dye Remover makes it look like any other bottle of dye, so check carefully.
