This article is about a part of Guild Wars that has been removed from the game in the Game_updates/20061025.
Please see the history of this article for further information.
Dye Remover was offered by merchants prior to the October 25, 2006 game update, instead of the Vial of Dye (Gray) as they do now. It was used to restore the basic color of armors and weapons. (If it was applied to a Warrior Elite Gladiator Hauberk, it would have been colored yellow for example. By contrast it would have had the same effect as red dye on a Necromancer Profane Tunic, which had a green color when purchased).
It was also possible to mix Dye Remover with other vials of dye, the resulting "Mixed Dye" used a colored icon of the Dye Remover.
- Dye Remover was often wrongly believed to have a unique color effect, especially when mixing dye, though it actually only served as cheaper option than buying the actual dye of the accordant basic colors of an item.
- The base color of both equipped items and inventory icons is still visible when slow load of graphics occur (usually in lower end computers), as the skins were not updated when the dye system was, and they still have their original colors in the GW.DAT file.
