Final Fantasy XIV has continued to hold players firmly within Eorzea because of the community, the excellent content on offer over the years, and of course for fashion purposes. A majority of the player base is highly interested in making sure their characters are looking exquisite on every occasion and a new Dye System update coming in Patch 7.0 will ensure there are even more options for your Glamour.

During the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival, it was revealed that there would now be two dyes that can be applied per gear piece instead of just one. This will allow everyone to customize their fashion a lot more intricately on a color basis: a long-requested feature by many players. This announcement came with the caveat that not every gear piece will be applicable for two dyes but there will likely be a lot that are.

Housing items also seem to be on the cards for extra dye pieces, with a statement during the showcase being as follows: “We might not be able to apply it to certain housing items but we will try to apply it to as much gear as we possibly can.” This dye system update is a very promising announcement by the team and it is something that will have a lot of longevity for usage in the community.

Even as far back as 2017, people were already starting to ask a lot more about having two dyes on gear pieces, as indicated by this Final Fantasy XIV forum post. The demand has certainly been there and players have already expressed their excitement immensely for the new feature — even by way of one of the loudest cheers of the day for the fan festival.

This incoming change in the Dye System will make player fashion style even more apparent. If you want to stand out from the crowd, there is always a benefit in having some stellar Glamour.
