Dyer's tent

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

Each town has a dyer's tent where simple items can be taken to change their colors. Many colors are available in multiple, or even all, of the dyer's tents, while others may be available only in one. Upon a time, the dyer was a single travelling merchant with a tent which showed up only from time-to-time; although there are now a variety of permanent locations, the traditional terminology has remained.

In order to dye an item, the adventurer must purchase a vial of sample dye (500 coins each), selecting the desired color from those available. Then, approach the dyer's tent clerk (usually found in the center room or near the entrance except in Solhaven at Midrian's Dyes, in which case it is east of the entrance, through a door, and then in one of the three stalls) while holding the vial of sample dye in one hand and the item to be dyed in the other. Then they must ORDER the service, at which time the clerk will inform them if the item can or cannot be dyed, and if it can be dyed, what the result will look like. There is the choice to walk away or confirm the order, and if confirmed, the item is immediately altered to its new description. All magic metal weapons and armor will keep the metal in the description.

Sample dyes can be stored and transported for later use.

A number of dyes can be made via Alchemy. They are listed below in the column marked ALCH. No clerk is needed to use alchemy-made dyes. Some can be made as early as General alchemy rank 2, while others are taught later.

Dyes from the tent can be converted into alchemy dyes to work with dye additives by using the ORDER BOTTLE command at the clerk. These dyes can also be used with cobbling uppers. Dyes bought from the cobbling locations can be brought to the local dyer's tent and also be converted into alchemy dyes using the same command at the clerk.

>order bottle
A disgruntled clerk snatches the dye out of your hands and stomps off, momentarily returning with a new vial to thrust into your hands.  A disgruntled clerk grumbles, "There!  Be careful wid dat.  Iff'n ya ruin yer stuff, dun come runnin' ta me wid da cleanin' bill."

Locations

  • Wehnimer's Landing: Reignbeau Caverns, a rainbow colored tent at West Crossing (eastern part of town, near the bridge)
  • River's Rest: a small bamboo cottage off the Shady Trail on the way to the Jungle
  • Ta'Vaalor: Ta'Vaalor Dye Wares, a door of golden oak on Gaeld Var (southwestern portion of town)
  • Ta'Illistim:Dalmyre Dyeworks, a small warehouse on Glimaer Wey one northwest of the movers
  • Icemule Trace: Our Colorful Place, in an enameled wooden door on Porter Street (S, S, and SW of the Thirsty Penguin)
  • Teras Isle:Rainbow Tent, a small dingy tent in the Poor Quarter on the west side of town
  • Zul Logoth: Multicolor Mushroom, a giant multicolored mushroom in the Crystalline Cavern
  • Cysaegir: Fluttering Myriad,up the steps down the footbridge from Pebble Pathway
  • Solhaven: Midrian's Dyes, a colorful tiled building on Changeling Lane in South Haven
  • Mist Harbor: Isle Dyes, a white stucco shop one south of Wisteria Crossing

Colors

X=dyer's tent, C=Cobbling (if the color is not immediately visible when using ORDER, it is in the backroom)

Icemule Trace and Wehnimer's Landing both have two cobbling shops with dyes. Dyes located in the cobbling warehouses are typically in the backroom, which is easily attainable by purchasing 100 pieces of chalk for less than 100 silvers each.

Dyes from the cobbling warehouse will NOT work on player forged weapon pieces. The dye tent won't recognize the dye, and pouring the dye manually empties the dye, but gets no results.
