In dark age of camelot there were dozens of dye colors that could be applied to armor. This allowed each person to personalize their gear and is a feature I would really appreciate in WoW.

Agreed. I've never played Guild Wars, but I've heard of armor dying in various MMO's and have long thought that it would be a great idea. After all, we have blacksmiths, leather-workers, and tailors making armor (some of which actually requires dyes to make), so why don't they know how to re-dye armor? I know some people will want this to make their armor a specific color all the time, but for me, the true advantage would be the ability to make new armor upgrades match your existing armor better. While it hasn't been much of an issue in Northrend (all the armor from questing and five-mans looks kinda, ahem, similar), I can't count how many times I've been levelling one of my toons, just finished assembling a matched armor set of some kind and then picked up an upgrade that made the fashion police take out a warrant for my immediate execution. I mean, would it be that hard to re-dye, say, one of those nasty mustard yellow cloaks to match that awesome red mail armor set I just completed? I can't see that it would, and I think it could make a great visual improvement. Just give tailors the ability to make and sell "dye kits" the way that LW's can sell armor kits and call it good, I say. Or heck, maybe scribes? After all, they already mill herbs, and that's where most ancient (and many modern) clothing dyes come from, after all.
