[dev1207] Changes to Gear Dyeing

Check out all the info after the break!

* The following changes are planned for patch 1.20.
* All features are under development and subject to change.

  • Gear dyeing will change in patch 1.20. Dyeing an item with the new recipes implemented in patch 1.19 would not only change its color; the item’s attributes and equipping requirements would also be affected. This essentially rendered players unable to dye gear to their liking. Patch 1.20 will enable players to dye gear without changing its attributes. New recipes will also be implemented that will allow you to voluntarily add attributes to items independent of color.
    * The above change is inspired by player suggestions.

    The following revisions will be applied based on changes in gear attributes as a result of dyeing:

    • Items with a single variant: item attributes and equipping requirements will be unified.
    • Items with multiple variants: items with different attributes will be renamed, and new color variations added.
      * Exceptions exist.
    • Items with a Single Variant

      Example:
      <Patch 1.19>
