Unlocking Dye Quest Guide


  • Level 15+
  • Orange Juice

Start NPC:

  • Swyrgeim (Western Thanalan > Vesper Bay)

Prep Work

Before running out to Swyrgeim, you'll need to pick up a carton of orange juice. You can either buy this from Katherine in Ul'dah - Steps of Thal > Sapphire Avenue Exchange, or craft it from level 6 cooking using three La Noscean Oranges, a fire shard, and a water shard.

The Quest

Once you have an orange juice in hand, head over to Vesper Bay in Western Thanalan and find Swyrgeim. She will offer you the quest “Color Your World”, which will require you to turn over your orange juice in exchange for ability to use dye.
