Guild Wars 2 allows you to preview locked dyes

    
35

Want to know exactly how that new dye is going to look before you drop some serious money on it? Guild Wars 2 understands, which is why it now allows players to preview locked dyes in the wardrobe screen.

Yesterday’s patch also officially ended the Lunar New Year event and added a finisher randomization option. The latter works exactly as you might imagine: by rotating through a player’s finishers roster in PvP and selecting a different one upon a kill.

wjowski Wha? Why? Give players “real” content for free and charge for convenience items and visual upgrades.

fakepants I checked yesterday and it’s up to over 88 gold right now. They’ve added a bunch of dyes that are only available temporarily and only through the gem store, so those sit at the top now, but Abyss is still in the top 10 or and it’s the most expensive “standard” rare dye (i.e. not added later).

Craywulf Arenanet takes over two years to add a basic feature thats standard in almost every other mmo so that means I shouldn’t play mmo’s anymore? Go be a white knight somewhere else and don’t ever reply to me again,tyvm.

fakepants Abyss Dye? I believe so. Good thing I had the once-in-a-lifetime luck of a court jester at the time opened a Black Lion Chest and obtained the dye, so now I don’t have a precursor to this day.

McSleaz Comments like these are two and half years late. There was no urgency expressed by gamers to implement such feature. I don’t ever recall seeing a post or even an article criticizing the lack of dye preview being a “standard” feature upon release of the game.

Lastly, if your going criticize ArenaNet for continually providing quality of life features for free then your obviously never going satisfied with any game developer. You might as well stop playing online games.

Then charge for content.  *Real* content.

Awesome change, all of my guildies last night were super excited about it. But we’re all RP’ers and super vain like that. ;)

Technically there was a dye preview option before, but it was super painfully awkward to use and didn’t work very well in any case. This new system is a vast improvement.
