Ghost of Tsushima: How to Dye Armor

Get the best fit by trading flowers for dyes.

Ghost of Tsushima is a character-oriented story, revolving around Jin Sakai as he overcomes an internal struggle while seeking revenge against an invading army. But that doesn’t mean players don’t have any customization options. Jin collects various sets of armor and other clothing throughout his journey, and plenty of ways to dress up his stuff.

One example is dyes, which merchants across Tsushima sell in exchange for flowers. You’ll find different merchants across your travels, spread all over the game’s world. Many of them have overlap in what they sell, but some other merchants are distinct, such as the trophy-awarding black and white dye merchants. Once you purchase a dye for a specific item, you’ll be able to swap between your acquired options in the game’s menu.

Flowers can be a bit tricky to find, but luckily for you the merchants in the area want them so badly they’ll help you find them. The first time you encounter a merchant, they’ll give you the Traveler’s Attire outfit, the basic function of which is to buzz at you when you’re close to an artifact. But if you go to the map while you have it equipped, you get an additional Guiding Wind target, for undiscovered flowers.

Once you have plenty of flowers your cosmetic options will really open up, as merchants also sell things like sword kits that can dramatically change how your weapons look as well. One thing to keep in mind however, is that during Act 1 you’ll come to find that merchants all sell the same selection of armor dyes. That said, once you advance further in the story and gain access to the Kamigata and Toyotama areas, you’ll be able to find more options for sale.

There’s a lot of nuance to finding everything you’ll want to in Ghost of Tsushima, especially when it comes to customizing Jin’s look. Luckily for you we already have tons of guide content! Check out some more relevant guides via the links below:
