    Default dye previews in game

    i never got to check it out but can you preview what dyes would look like on armors and weapons like in GW or does it just put it on the item like in Aion?

    You can preview dyes.

    You can't dye weapons.

    Unfortunately, the layer maps for many items are somewhat glitchy or maybe just not done very well, so the result often looks like crap. Not that RIFT would be the only game to have that problem with this feature.

    CTRL + click gives a preview of the dye before you actually apply it.

    Yes when you apply a dye it shows on your character window and then you get a confirmation box to actually apply it.

    I would rather preview it before "buying" ;P but that's me. Maybe I don't want to spend 10g on a colour to only realize I really don't like it heheh

    There is no pink dye. If there was I would be a very happy camper and just dye everything pink, no matter how crappy it looked

    10G very quickly becomes a trivial amount. Even if you don't like the dye on an item you just bought, you can keep it and put it on something else later.

    If you take the profession Apothecary you can make dyes that are not available in the dye shop. Pretty cool.

    Although it's not pink (per se), I did dye my Bahmi warrior's Plate armor Fuscia in CB3.
    He looked so purdy.
