Needs details on costume dyeing and dye stamps
For more information, see the help files, the style guide, and this article's talk page.

Dyes are colors which can be applied to armor, clothing, or shields at any Dye Station. Dye can also be applied to costumes and hats with ESO Plus or Dye Stamps. Dye Stations can be found in most major cities, generally near the Alchemy Stations. There is at least one Dye Station for each zone. Dyes are acquired by unlocking Achievements. Unlocked Dyes are shared across accounts, so multiple characters can use them. This allows, for example, new characters to use Dyes that cannot normally be acquired at their level if they have been unlocked by another character.

Dyeing your armor is free and requires no resources of any kind. You may re-dye the same armor piece as many times as you like. But once an armor piece is dyed once, it is permanently bound to your account, and cannot be traded to other players. It may of course still be sold to NPCs, deconstructed, researched, or destroyed. You can only apply dyes to armor you are currently wearing. Other armor in your inventory is not available in the Dye Station interface. All armor pieces may be dyed, including those received as a quest reward.

Each armor piece can have three different colors applied to it. From left to right on the interface they include a primary color, a trim color, and a secondary color. The primary color will be the most prominent on the armor, while the secondary will be seen on some of the smaller sections. Trim color usually separates the two. This of course depends greatly on the type and style of armor in question. In the Dye Station interface, you may have up to four pre-defined sets, which can be applied wholesale to a piece of armor, or you can apply colors directly to each piece without using sets. You can also use the Copy Color tool to see what color an armor piece already has, in order to apply it to other slots. You can preview your color choices without committing them, and rotate your character to see them from multiple angles. Once you have chosen the colors you want, you can commit your changes, which will make them permanent.

Standard dyes come in three different rarities and seven different hue sets. Common Dyes are relatively easy to acquire, and can generally be unlocked by any character. Uncommon Dyes require a good bit more work to unlock, and some may require a significant investment in crafting skills, may only be available to Veteran level players, etc. Rare Dyes are much more difficult to get, and only the most dedicated players are likely to see many of them. Uncommon and especially Rare Dyes tend to be more intense and shinier than Common ones. You can sort the available Dyes either by rarity or by hues, which are roughly divided into Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Brown, and Grey. Additionally, you can optionally filter out the Dyes you have unlocked from those you haven't. Rolling over a Dye will show you which achievement is needed to unlock it if you haven't yet, and you can click on the description to be taken to the achievements page to see it in more detail.

In addition to these, Update 17 introduces new multi-colored dyes, which correspond to the un-dyed colors for crafted items at each of the levels of crafting. So if you want a Maple Shield to look like Ruby Ash, this will now be possible. You can unlock these by deconstructing an item (of any type) at each of the various crafting levels. Update 17 also introduces for the first time the ability to dye weapons, as part of the Outfit System.

Finally, there are a number of dyes which can only be found in Dye Stamps purchased from the Crown Store, and thus only applied to costumes and not armor. While most Dye Stamps use standard dyes, the ones associated with Holiday Events generally use more vivid colors unique to these events.

  • All of the colors in the "Grey" hue set use the spelling "Gray" instead, a minor inconsistency.
