Yes if you can find a way to have them milk players even more.

As reference
  • Black/ black dye 2000 CC
  • Withe /white 1000 CC
That are bound once used.

Actually I may be of some help :
  • Separate gear dyes not in 2 but 3 slots a then set the price for each dye to 700 CC.

Profit.

Dyes are a relatively new thing for me given that I've recently come back to the game. What kind of changes do folks generally want to see implemented?

  • Separate primary dye from the secondary in two dyes.
  • Have the dyes color be more consistent when applying on gear: ex a red dye on a top would have a different hue on a bottom part.
  • Have the dyes cover more area that we can't die now.
  • Eventually have a 3rd dye as in GW2
  • Be able to remove dyes once slotted.

I think this is actually the only thing that a vast majority of the players want.

Of course, those who want appearance tabs will claim that most people want that and so on, but that's usually very tainted by the age old "I think this is right, so everyone else must too".

I don't think we'll see any changes to the Dye System other than more colours being introduced with pack and rep vendors.

About the dyes. Once I unlock one, can I reclaim them like mounts and Armorsets in the cartel market?

Nope. You have to buy it every time.

The problems with the dye system in this game?

1. They've been really slow releasing new colours
2. The colour combinations mostly suck.
3. None of the dyes are reusable which is an expensive pain in the backside if you change outfits on any kind of regular basis.

What do I want to see in the dye system? I want Guild Wars 2's dye system.

1. Account bound reuse, once you obtain a colour you can use it on any character as many times as you want.
2. Hundreds of colours
3. Every piece of gear has individual colour channels from 2 to as many as 5 different colours. All can be coloured individually.

Bioware implemented a dye system designed specifically to maximise Cartel Market revenue, not to please or delight their players.
