Q&A with Bioware on armor dyes

Hey everyone, to answer some of the questions and concerns you guys had with the introduction of dye modules in patch 2.1, I recently had a Q&A with Bioware on the topic of dye modules. I didn't manage to get all the questions answered but hopefully the answer will be useful to some of you.

http://dulfy.net/2013/05/01/swtor-pa...-with-bioware/

TL: DR - 48 different dye modules on release, KOTOR related lore outfits not dyable (there is a list of all the armor not dyeable in the link), and some more explanation on how primary and secondary dye modules work.

Thank you... Your website is probably our guild's most-used resource for guides and news. Awesome work, as always.

Ty.

I really want them to re-think what they're doing with those restrictions. Jolee's set has different color scheme than in KotOR and doesn't look as good. ;l

Might make some monies with artifice after exams.

Almost 3 years old and there are still no iconic / classic / traditional / prequel-style (pick any!) Jedi robes in the game! How come?

Also how about letting players wear the robes that are already in the game but not accessible to them?

Don't let your artists' work go to waste, Bioware

Made my (otherwise bad) Wednesday a little better to get news before I was expecting it (friday).
Any chance we could (either from you or from Bioware) a list of websites that will have information? I feel I could be missing out on a decent amount of information.

Thank you! I remember you saying we would see this on Friday so it's good to see it early. I have an Artifice character sitting at around 350. Going to have to finish leveling it so I'm ready, although I have a feeling most of the primary-secondary mods will be on the CM.

Also glad to see that people were freaking out over nothing when they said we wouldn't be able to dye adaptive gear because you can use it at level 1.

And I still think the lore restriction is weird. If they had called those sets something else (but made them look exactly the same), would they still have this limitation? My guess is they just want to release those datamined "alternate" sets.

Why for the love of god did they not just give each piece two slots, one for primary and one for secondary or give us the ability to make our own combos?!


That just seems like a thoroughly foolish decision. Why pass up on a chance to give the customer more options and control?
