If you are looking to improve your in-game style, look no further. This article explains how to find and use Dyes in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

There is so much customization available when you are creating your character. Apart from race and class, you can modify your character appearance to the tiniest detail. But that is not all. During your adventuring, you may come across various Dyes, which you can use to further change the color scheme of your Arisen or main Pawn. Here’s how to find and use Dyes in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

Dragon’s Dogma 2: How to Find Dyes

Dyes are not something that you can find on your adventuring. There is a specific vendor that sells them, located in Bakbattahl. In the city, look for Alexia. She’s a merchant located in the Pawn Guild of Bakbattahl, standing near the Riftstone.

Speak to her and open the trade window. There you’ll see different dyes: Red Dye, Green Dye, Blue Dye, Yellow Dye, and Purple Dye. Unfortunately, Dyes do not cost gold, they cost Rift Crystals. Each Dye is priced at 500 RC apiece. Purchase the one that you like and now let’s see how to use it.

How to Use Dyes in Dragon’s Dogma 2

To use Dyes in DD2, you first have to take them to a Barberie. Fortunately, there is already a barber in Bakbattahl called Mettefere’s Cosmetics. As soon as you interact with the vendor and open the “services” menu, the message “You handed over all the dyes in your possession.” will appear. As you might expect, that means that the new dyes have been added to your palette, and now you can use them to change your color scheme. Note that Dyes are only used for hair, makeup, etc, you cannot change to color of your equipment with them. All of this also applies if you want to change to colors on your main Pawn. 

While at the barber’s you can change the color of your hair, makeup, and markings, with your new dye. But allegedly, there is an option to change your skin color using the new dye. For that, fans say that you have to follow the same procedure for changing your appearance mid-game. But now, you will have more colors available when you are modifying the skin color. We still have to confirm this, so take it with a grain of salt.
