    New to cosmetics customization... Making a Tengu Ninja Warden / What can't be dyed?

    Hi!

    So I came across a bit of inspiration a few hours ago, and basically found that the Cloak of the Raven + the Raven Mask (headgear Can sort of make you look like a Japanese Tengu (crow demon, but well, close enough).

    Thing is, I don't really know how to customize cosmetics... as I've mostly been using the pre-order cosmetic stuff for my characters.

    I'd really like to learn how though, but as I'm level 66, I'm not sure what I can actually dye.

    3 Questions then.

    1. What are the basic rules for cosmetics (Basically, what can I dye, and how can I make different colored copies of one item?)
    2. Is there a way to sort of make a armored ninja-like outfit that's dark colored and matches the Cloak of the raven? If so, can you give me some ideas?
    3. I've been reading the cosmetic blog list, but I don't quite get how they're able to amass so many clothes and styles. Do you purchase clothing storage space or stash stuff in your personal bank?

    1) Except for a select few things, anything can be dyed at least once. I wish I could find a basic guide to wardrobe, previewing cosmetics in dressing room and so on, I'm not ready to write any! The cosmetic slots you know of - if you have an item in wardrobe storage, you can dye that any number of times and use it as long as the item remains in a wardrobe storage slot. You can add any armour/deco to the wardrobe: the item does not have to be bound, the character does not need to be able to use the item (heavy armour, pieces that need rep and so on, you can use anything via wardrobe).
    2) No idea. I look at all quest rewards, all crafted, all looted, all barter, all outfits and deco gear...and try to mix n match via wardrobe.
    3) You can have tons of wardrobe slots - costly perhaps but good fun. I stuff a nice-looking piece of gear in wardrobe and usually get rid of the original item. As for storage space, I find adding an extra character slot adds lot of storage...or at least I used to think so, these days I try to sort loot and tidy up a little (also I have max number of character slots and I only want to use one alt account).

    1. You can dye almost everything that is clothing (exept those preorder outfits & a few raid armour sets). You cannot dye shields or weapons. The dyes can be crafted, bought at store & infamous Lalias market. To make copies on 1 item on different colors, people use the wardrope system. Wardrope can be bought on store.
    2. Well there are no ninja class or ninja gear on this game but you can sort out a cosmetic combination that looks like what you wish. You can inspect how the clothing pattern & colors look on your toon before buy the items.
    3. There are many resource to adquire interesting clothes patterns. Some are: Drops, quest rewards, crafted, sold by vendors, instances sets, festivals, store, Lalia's market (i recomend you to wash her stuffs before use, she get the gear by looting corpses of those she trick to escort her ). The patterns are saved on the wardrope once you add them.

    Hello... So Just to clarify, the I can basically store more than just purely cosmetic armor for use with cosmetic outfits? So for instance, that low-level metalsmith armor can still be used as a dye-friendly cosmetic outfit for a character, correct?

    Correct. You can store reputation barter armour that would normally require finishing long raids and deeds - pop them in wardrobe (preview first in dressing room so you see that they can be dyed!), add dye as you please and drag from wardrobe to character. You can add heavy armour looks to your minstrel, moria warden set boots deco to your champion and character bound hunter quest bear hat to your RK.

    If you remove the item from wardrobe, it is gone from there but the image of the item remains if you added it to a deco slot on a character. The wardrobe does not remember old stuff, if you re-add a cloak that you once had stored in wardrobe with many different colours, it will require adding the dyes again.

    It's not too complicated =) Go have fun!

    Yes, you can add any clothing including crafted to the wardrope & use it on any alt from the wardrope (as outfit) You can save the pattern of those low level clothes if you will not use the clothes anymore in the wardrope. Remember that the wardrope save a copy of the item that is a outfit version, not the actual armour. The space of wardrope is limited, you can buy extra with slots on store. but is a but expensive so you may want to consider if certain piece is worty to take a space in the wardrope before add it.
