How to Apply Dyes

Dyes are coming to ESO in August. Currently, on the PTS you can preview how the dye system will work.

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.
