Guild Wars 2 generated some buzz this week with a detailed blog post regarding the upcoming game's dye system for character armor. Players will have the ability to dye each armor piece different colors -- white sleeves and a red bodice, for example -- and the full dye system could have over 400 available colors.

This system brings the following question to mind: "Do you care?" The attention paid to armor style varies widely in MMOs, from the nonexistent armors of EVE Online to the not-so-pretty armors of Dungeons and Dragons Online to the stylish armors of Final Fantasy XIV. Are you the type to spend time getting your gear's appearance just so, or are you more interested in spending time on the battlefield rather than the catwalk?
