[edit] Dye

Dye affects the sword's pommel. The blade and flames are unaffected. The pommel will receive a slight tint of the dye color or become a lighter or darker shade of gray. The default color can be closely replicated using yellow dye. The ones obtained from a Gift of the Traveler cannot be dyed.

[edit] Trivia

  • This item was released, unannounced, during Wintersday 2005. There was much speculation that this item would no longer drop following the celebration, accounting for the very high price at the time, until it was later learned the item would in fact continue to drop.
  • In the May 24th, 2007 update, Icy Dragon Swords (from Ice Imps) were retroactively changed to being considered a rare item to exempt them from loot scaling.
