FFXIV Getting New Dye Options and Glasses

When going over certain 7.0 FFXIV system updates, new gear dye options and eyeglasses as a new type of gear were confirmed. Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida went over a few details about both additions. To be specific, you’ll be able to use two dyes per gear piece. Also, glasses will be considered separate items, so you can wear them with headgear. He also confirmed that they should start appearing once Dawntrail launches.

First, Yoshida discussed the new dye options for gear in FFXIV Dawntrail. People will be able to use two different dyes on each piece. He noted that not every item will be compatible in 7.0. However, throughout the 7.x patches more will appear. Also, some housing items will not be able to use two dyes.

As for glasses in FFXIV Dawntrail, they will be considered a new type of gear separate from headgear. They will try to have them ready to go in 7.0. When this change does happen, they will not take up Armory Chest space.
