Another Request/Idea

    Can we get a special item through some method that detects and reveals to us the true color of any item even if the item is on some other players vendor or locked down in there house?
    • In my opinion non dyed items are worth more then dyed items at least as far as many rare collectors are concerned. Granted i know that Tokuna dye is very rare and very expensive so i understand why in those cases the Tokuna dyed items sell for more then the non dyed items but not everyone feels the same way as for me i wont buy an item if i know it was dyed and i know i am not alone in this.
    • One item that i speak of is the Lamp Post from Doom as most of you know there are some naturally rare color ones too and Tokuna dyes can dye normal ones to look like rare color ones this can lead to scams i am sure it has already happened the lamp post is only one example i know there are other examples too.
    • Perhaps this can be some sort of craftable eye glasses or reward or something that can be switched or just naturally shows us the true color of the item anyway it happens if it happens at all i will be happy what is your opinion on this if any?
    One last thing i wanted to add even if the item what ever it is does not reveal the original color of the item but if it just tells us if the item is dyed or not dyed would be nice too.
  2. This sounds like a revival of Item Identification! It could tell you "a dyed lampost"

    Well for the dye part you can allways bleach stuff to reveal the true color.

    But as far as the lamps go i know with the white ones they cannot be dyed, i have tried it and i couldnt dye a regular lamp luna white.

    But i could dye it purple.
    I am not sure what colored spawned Lamps are out there and i havent tried if all the tokuno dyes worked on them.
    I just know when i tried the luna white on a doom lamp post it told me i couldnt dye it
