Matching Gear Dye?


Recommended Posts

The closest color I can find to the Seraph weapon set is Icing Dye, a fairly common "rare" dye. Icing is not quite as bright as Seraph weapons, but anything I found that is brighter is also much whiter in color.

There may be a closer match in a Black Lion Exclusive dye set. I don't have any of them to check out on my account, so I can't really help any further.

You can always preview any dye in the dye section of the hero panel by having it show all locked dyes as well and even have them grouped by color/shade or you can use the wardrobe to preview the armor of you don't own it and look on the trading post for dyes then right click and preview them from there.

Another way to compare colors is to take quality screenshot and use a program with a color picker to identify the color "code" on the item of interest. Then visit GW2 BLTC's color picker to find close matches.


Taking @"CaelestiaEmpyrea.2617"'s Icing Dye as an example to find near-matches in the game...

  • Visit the wiki page for Icing Dye
  • On its "info box", click on the link to "GW2 BLTC"
  • On that page, click on the Eye Dropper Icon, slight to the right of the name.
  • That page shows at least a dozen colors that are considered a 90% match or better.

edit: updated to use the metal match for Icing Dye, rather than the cloth


Caveats

Colors on a computer (and in game) are specified in three dimensions (often called, Red Green Blue or RGB, although there are other systems). But the dye picker compares using only one dimension. That's a bit like Google Maps claiming your friend is 1 minute walking distance away when you're on the 50th floor of 1001 Main Street and they are next door at 1003 Main, also on the 50th. That is, you might be more interested in matching the Red tones or more interested in matching brightness.

That's why (in the example above), the very greenish Mint Frost shows as a close match, even though "Icing" is obviously a "gray."

Or in brief, your mileage absolutely varies, so look at less-close matches, because the color you seek might be there instead.
