BG3: Dyes [All Rarities & How To Find]

After playing BG3 for countless hours, here is a list of all dyes and how to get.

In the very versatile and flexible world of Baldur’s Gate 3, appearances go a long way. The Dyes in BG3 is just one of the ways you can mix and match different colors to pop out like a Jojo character and defeat your foes in style. Granted, they are tricky to find and sometimes even confusing to use effectively.

Key Takeaways
  • Dyes are consumable items in BG3 that change the color of armor and equipment.
  • They can only be used once, after which they will be consumed.
  • Dye removers can be used to restore the item to its default state.
  • You can purchase Dyes from merchants or find them scattered around Faerun.
  • Dyes come in Uncommon, Rare, and Very Rare rarities.
  • The rarer the dye, the more expensive it will be when selling or purchasing.

What Are Dyes In BG3?

Dyes are consumable items that allow you to change your appearance based on their color.

Some players of BG3 focus a lot on their appearance, making sure they are well-suited for any task that may present itself. After character creation, it becomes extremely hard to change your appearance, especially if you fully embrace the Illithid powers. Thankfully, there are many locations and traders that may sell you Dyes so you can mix and match and look glamorous for any fight.

Some additional features of Dyes are listed as follows:

  • Dyes can only be used once.
  • They come in many different rarities, which makes it challenging to find the perfect colors.
  • You have to explore many different areas to get your desired colors.
  • Most of the “good” dyes can not be obtained until Act 3.

How To Use Dyes?

Using dyes is quite a simple task but can be confusing if you’re new to BG3. However, a thing to note before you start is that you should probably save beforehand just in case you don’t like what the dye has done. After all, having a safe save you can revert to is more than helpful in most scenarios.

Follow these steps to apply any dye to a compatible item:

  1. Open your inventory and select the dye you want to use.
  2. Right-click it and select the “Combine” option.
  3. It will open a new window with two slots.
  4. Put the dye in the first slot and the armor or equipment you want to apply the dye to in the second slot.
  5. Click combine and equip your newly dyed glamorous equipment.

How To Get Dyes?

Dyes are not the most popular item in the first two acts if you compare them to something like Health potions and poisons. However, they become more accessible to buy (still not cheap) from vendors in Act 3. However, there are some dungeons or boxes hidden in plain sight that host some dyes.

I have listed most sought Baldur’s Gate 3 Dyes locations below:

  • Aaron at the Druid Grove in Act 1.
  • Zara the Mummy at the Circus of The Last Days in Act 3.
  • From Treasure Chests and corpses that scattered across Faerun in all acts.

My Opinion

Dyes are one of the many features in BG3 I have spent hours and hours experimenting with. I have been playing BG3 for a good 40+ hours, and 30% of that time was just spent on hunting the dyes I wanted. 

After many painful hours, I can safely say that Balthazar (My Character) and the rest of my team not only cripple our foes but do it with finesse and style. After all, we do need those style points to fit our heroic status as the saviors of Baldur’s Gate.

With that, the time is here to conclude the guide on Dyes in BG3. Hopefully, you found it more than helpful in your search for glamor. While here, I recommend checking out the Best Sorcerer Class Spells guide. If that doesn’t float your boat, you can always check out the Best Shadowheart companion build.
