I'm talking about dyes that are exclusive to the Cartel Market or in the Packs, not the ones you can craft with Artifice.

I honestly don't mind if they charge the usual 240, or 600, hell... even 1000cc, just so people who have paid millions for one particular dye, can have across all their toons. If you can unlock speeders, armour, weapons, etc... wouldn't it make sense to add dyes to collections too?

This game has the most worthless nickel and dime based dye system ever conceived. The fact that people actually think a single use black/black dye is worth millions of credits just boggles my mind to no end.

One you "learn" a dye you should be able to unlock it, or "learn" it on that toon forever.....you know, like most ALL over MMO's do.

That fact that you think what you do and choose to do in YOUR game should be dictated to everyone else just shows the immaturity of your post. I could care less how others got their dyes.

I'd like to see this, or at the very least be able to remove a dye from an item LIKE WITH ANY OTHER MOD so that it can be put in another item. Still bound of course. But this way you wont have to worry about a nicer item coming along to use that black/black dye on.

As it is, I cant see why anyone would even use the black/black dye due to the rediculously high cost. Whatever you put it in, you'll regret it later.

The current system needs a major review and overhaul. There's a number of problems:

1) Narrow choice of colours / inflexible system.
There's too few colours on offer and the way they are applied is very inflexible. Everyone has different tastes and opinions on what looks good, but with such a restrictive system it can be hard to get the look you want. Colour choice needs to be put in the hands of the players, so we can buy the colours *we* want, not the colours the devs think we want. or decide to drip feed to us.

2) Single use dyes.
I don't mind paying a premium for a nice dye I like *IF* I can re-use it in some way, either via collections or by being able to remove it and transfer it to another piece of gear. I refuse to pay a premum for something I might change my mind about later. There's lots of new gear constantly released into the game and it's unreasonable to expect people to keep re-purchasing expensive dyes to keep up with that.

3) Tertiary undyeable zones on certain armours.
Quite a lot of armour sets have tertiary dye zones which don't respond to any dye and always stay the same colour. This often produces odd looking results when applying dye. I understand that old gear isn't likely to be updated to correct this. But there is still plenty of new gear, released since the dye system was launched, which has this problem, not all of it reskins either. What's the point of buying an expensive dye only to find that significant chunks of your armour don't respond to it?

I like this idea very much. I think it would be great to have it added to collections. Or at least make them transferrable like mods.
More Individual class/companion story extensions!

Hi Bioware,

Is it possible if we can have some sort of official response to this post? Or if we can get your point of view on this please?

Thank you.

From a business perspective, Bioware has every interest for the player to spend money - both ingame and outside of the game. It also wants to provide sellable exclusive to CM stuff.

Why would Bioware give you a one time buy of a Black / Black dye from the CM with saved sub coins or at 2 mils off GTN, when they can goad you into gambling much more into packs (6900 for 24 was one offer somewhere), or buy TWO B/B Dyes at 4000?

Don`t get me wrong, I LOVE this idea, but I don`t think it is practical fro Bioware and as such, it will never see the light of day. If it does, you`ll pay dearly for it, most probably.

That's the silliest part though. As it is now. I'll never buy the super expensive dyes. Not worth it for various reasons already stated in this thread. However, if unlocking dyes (only CM dyes, crafted ones are fine as is) were an option....


Do you know how many dyes I would buy and unlock just on the off chance I -might- use them on something down the road? Lots... more then I probably should but I like having options. Its why if I see a belt I like in a set, I will get the rest of the set just to unlock it so I can use it elsewhere if I want to later on.

Isn't their point of view pretty clear? The current system is the one they believe is the most effective way to monetize the dye feature. As long as the current system keeps generating purchases then I don't expect them to have a reason to change it. Business is business.
