QFT: Dyealogue

Do what you want because a pirate is free, You are a pirate!

With every big announcement about Guild Wars 2 comes a torrent of interviews. I usually try to pick out interesting quotes and provide commentary. In this case, Massively interviewed Kristin Perry and posted it shortly after I posted about her Arenanet blog post. Grrr.

It’s a pretty short interview but there are about 2 things that I thought clarified some points.

In her blog Kristin Perry announced the addition of a 4th dyeable area on some pieces of armour, but in the interview that is expanded upon.

Are there any small pieces that will have fewer channels? The example you gave regarding gloves was a good one — it seems like it would be difficult to dye gloves three different colors.

Kristen Perry: Just about any piece has the potential to have fewer dye channels. The priority for the dye channel allocation is to break up the pieces into aesthetic and meaningful areas. This gives a very natural selection to the choices, so the player doesn’t have to compromise their color palette due to the mask trying to dye as much pixel real estate as possible. It’s fair to say that any piece that logically doesn’t need many dye channels wouldn’t have them. A piece with less detail (like an old leather boot with a buckle, a mask, or a plain pair of pants) would qualify for less than three channels.

Makes logical sense.

And then yeah. Shortest QFT ever. I guess I’m getting a little sick of the dye stuff.
