How to Apply Dyes

To apply dyes to your armor, you must visit a Dye Station. There is at least one Dye Station per zone , located within a town. Once you apply color changes to your armor, the armor pieces bound to your character. You can use the Randomize button to apply a random assortment of colors to your armor based on those dyes you have unlocked. You can re-dye armor pieces as often as you like.

All dyes are unlocked through the Achievement system.

The Dye All description for the paint can tool is wrong. It doesn’t dye all three blocks. It dyes the same block on all pieces of armor that you are dyeing; for instance, to fill all Primary slots with blue dye.
