I'm really not beginning to like the ability to hero/evil dye items. It makes it so that only you and those in your faction (or companion evil faction) can only use the item. It is beginning to restrict all the good items in this game to faction characters only. Think about Samurai helms. There is a limited supply of Samurai helms. Sooner or later, if they don't release more Samurai helms, all the Samurai helms will be hero or evil dyed and only those participating in factions will have access to them. Look at the plethora of cursed arties, and how they are all becoming hero/evil dyed. If there was a way someone could cleanse or purify the item so that it is no longer hero/evil dyed, great. A hero faction character could remove an evil dye by using lifeforce, I could live with it, or even a non-faction character. Think about...faction character A runs around in all evil dyed items. I kill that character, I get all his stuff, there is nothing I can do with the stuff. All I can do is trash it, or sell it back to his faction, so I get gold. It has now been reduced to a very expensive item insurance method. And with all the good cursed arties and stuff becoming faction dyed, a non-faction character will not be able to compete. Thoughts?
