    I do like the idea, however it would be too much work to go back and redo every item in the game to support it. It also wouldn't really work well with their different difficulties having their own colours at the moment. Perhaps if they created items/gear specifically with the intent to let you dye it how you want would be a neat little feature.

    Why?

    Because then the WoW artists would actually have to make different designs for gear, and currently they can't even come up with good designs for gear. Adding more will just create more problems.
    While I do think they should allow for you to change the color you do raise a very good point about the dev team. As for heroic and elite gear maybe make them get some extra colors. Example for regular pvp you get red and for elite pvp you get red an gold or maybe a little extra color customization. I would actually be a big fan of the DCUO color system, the appearance system would be great to but that doesnt matter to me as much as the color.

    It would conflict with Wow's philosophy of gear recognition. But the biggest problem would be having to remake every single piece of gear in the game from scratch to accomodate for colour changing.

    I guess Blizzard r having trouble coming up with their own ideas so why not just copy other MMOs successful features.

    Hell yes! I think the "It would be silly cus pink/clown outfits" arguments are invalid. It's already happening with transmog, not a lot but it does. Also, why the hell do you care how someone's character looks like? If he wants to be wearing pink with bunnies all over it and kill some dragons like that then that's the person's own choice not yours.

    A lot of the things they added like PVP power, baseline resilience, and the Kor'Kron crap in the Barrens are taken directly from Rift, but honestly I remember dying my armor in EverQuest like 8 years ago, so I'm not sure why it never occurred to Blizzard to maybe adopt this.

    I beg to differ. I have seen lots of people do silly transmogs. I bet if you went on the wow forums and clicked people's armories from the forums you would see lots of different transmogs. Maybe not ALL silly looking, but I've seen many people that mix up several sets of gear to achieve a certain look.

    And for those of you that haven't played the other mmos out there now, not everyone looks like silly power ranger techno color crazies in those other games.

    What do you mean "things get silly"?

    You already have Pokemon in game, Kung-Fu Pandas, gnomes, dwarves, mechanostriders, biplanes, APC's, trolls etc. How are things not silly already? This is a game for 12 year olds, do you consider it "serious" in any way so that if everyone and their brother dye their clothes pink (which they will), grow braids and mustaches and run around in pink dresses somehow this will mean that the game will lose its seriousness?

    Haha. Sorry but you make me laugh.

    EDIT: I used to play Ultima Online back in 2004.

    So anyway, UO had dyes available, and ppl used them to dye their clothes and armour. What happened was, you'd get male "Red" characters with blond braids and moustaches and beards (Red characters were PK's-Player Killers) dressed in 17th Century Bavarian Female pink female dresses and holding instead of weapons skillets (frying pans), because the game allowed one to wear a female dress on top of one's armor. If you were a caster, it didn't matter what you held in your hand.

    So you had male Player-Killer characters with braids and moustaches dressed like Bavarian maids in pink dresses running around killing players casting flamestrikes holding skillets. Haha. Absolutely ridiculous. It is only a matter of time before forum pressure turns WoW into something equally pathetic, seeing as how Blizzard would implement almost anything.

    I said no. I like the idea in principle, but I'm not sure how it would work out for sets that have a lot of variety in their existing colorschemes. It works well in Diablo 3 and GW2 where there aren't many models, and those there are are frankly pretty bland, but I just don't think it would work well with the rather more detailed models in WoW.

    Well why not, but personally I don't give a damn about it.

    I would love to see dyes come into the game. If anything just to make it easier to get gear that might just slightly be off colour to match exactly.

    Would be a great addition, it leaves me baffled why it isn't already available.

    So many of the armour sets have crap colours.

    That would be a good way to bring some value back to the armor crafting profressions: tailors make dye for cloth, etc.
