Types of dye
Standard dyes can be used to dye capes and goblin mail. All of these standard dyes are sold at Lletya Seamstress, run by Oronwen in Lletya, for 10 coins each. Aggie in Draynor Village and Ali the dyer in Pollnivneach will make these dyes for the player if they are brought certain ingredients.
Two primary colours (red, blue or yellow) can be mixed with each other to produce a secondary colour (orange, green or purple).
|Dye||Ingredients||GE cost||Ingredient cost|
|Red dye||3 redberries||4,195||1,800|
|Orange dye||Red dye and yellow dye||705||6,857|
|Yellow dye||2 onions||2,662||1,200|
|Green dye||Blue dye and yellow dye||1,343||4,227|

|Purple dye||Red dye and blue dye||199||5,760|
These dyes may be acquired from hard or elite Treasure Trails and can be used to dye level 90 and level 92 armour and weapons, turning them into repairable equipment. This process is irreversible, the dye is used up in the process, and the dyed versions of equipment become permanently untradeable unless killed for them in a combat area in which the item will drop a broken version and the dye will not drop, only the item that was dyed.
Pink dye is members-only and can be bought from Betty in the Magic Shop in Port Sarim for 20 coins, after you have completed The Hand in the Sand quest. It can be made during the quest by using redberries and white berries with a special vial of water.
Black mushroom ink
Black mushroom ink is members only and player made during the Shadow of the Storm, Land of the Goblins, and The Golem quests. It can be used to dye capes, desert robes, goblin mails, origami balloons, and the Silverlight sword.
A whitefish is required to get the "bleach" to obtain the "blank colour" white. However, the "bleach" itself is not received as an item and it only colours goblin mail, to obtain white goblin mail, for use during the Land of the Goblins quest.
Dye is used in a number of quests:
- Ghosts Ahoy
- Goblin Diplomacy
- Mourning's End Part I
- Hand in the Sand
- Enlightened Journey
- Recipe for Disaster
- Eagles' Peak
- Land of the Goblins
