**A bottle of purple dye spawns south of the gap between East and West Ardougne. Very close to the Khazard Battlefield Spirit Tree, to the east, next to the bridge.
Pink dye is members-only and can be bought from Betty in the Magic Shop in Port Sarim for 20 coins, after you have completed The Hand in the Sand quest. It can be made during the quest by using redberries and white berries with a special vial of water.
Black mushroom ink Edit
Black mushroom ink is members only and player made during the Shadow of the Storm, Land of the Goblins, and The Golem quests. It can be used to dye capes, desert robes, goblin mails, origami balloons, and the Silverlight sword.
A Whitefish is required to get the "bleach" to obtain the "blank colour" white. However, the "bleach" itself is not received as an item and it only colours goblin mail, to obtain white goblin mail, for use during the Land of the Goblins quest.
Third age, barrows, blood and shadow dyes may be obtained as a rare reward from hard or elite Treasure Trails. These dyes can be used to dye level 90 armour and weapons, turning them into repairable equipment. This process is irreversible, and the dyed versions become permanently untradeable.
Dye is used in a number of quests:
- Ghosts Ahoy
- Goblin Diplomacy
- Mourning's Ends Part I
- Prince Ali Rescue
- Hand in the Sand
- Enlightened Journey
- Recipe for Disaster
- Eagles' Peak
- Land of the Goblins
