The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a pretty big game and there’s a good chance gamers may get bored looking at Link running around in his drab gear after a few hours of playing it. Thankfully, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild makes it pretty easy for players to dye their clothes and armor, providing they have the correct items in their inventory and 20 rupees to spare.
First off, players will need to have found Hateno village, which is on the far east of the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild world map. One of the shops in town is run by Sayge, who offers to dye players’ clothes for 20 rupees, though players will need to bring five items that share the color they want as well — not the most efficient business strategy, but there it is.
Once these five items are collected, Sayge literally dumps Link into a dye vat and — presto! — the protagonist’s clothes are the color selected.
Changing back to Link’s original color — or one that was unlocked earlier — involves just paying Sayge the 20 rupees, once unlocked colors stay in the shop’s selection, thankfully. As the dunking process dyes every single piece of clothing and armor worn, to color just a single one and create a palette while traveling Hyrule, players will need to unequip what they don’t want dyed and then go through the process as many times as necessary. Note that some items in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, such as the Ancient Armor, can’t be customized this way.
As for the ingredients Sayge requires to dye clothes in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, these can be found pretty much anywhere: from plants to monster drops to gemstones. If it has a color, Sayge can use it.
Do note that some of these items are pretty pricey or rare, so in the selection screen players may want to ensure that there are not using a vital potion ingredient just to look pretty. Also, the five items don’t need to all be different: for the light blue dye five moblin guts will do just as well as two moblin guts and three chuchu jelly.
Below a quick list of all the available dyes and some more common ingredients in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, do note that players may find many more during Link’s travels.
