New dye colour: Daedric Black

Greetings!

Here is a tiny suggestion, as it is really annoying to be forced to grind PvP for months, if not more than a year to ever see the light of the Legate's black, which currently comes the closet to the awesome black worn by the Daedra roaming Tamriel.

That is why I would very happily suggest for a "Daedric Black" colour to be introduced, which could be earned through completing all Dark Anchor achievements. Which means if one has maxed out the Dark Anchor achievements, they can now dress up as a perfect looking Daedra Warrior/Assassin/Necromancer outfit wise.

The black colour should essentially be 100% identical to the one which almost all Daedra has upon their armor, like this:

Here is a small comparison shot, both are captured in cyrodiil at the same time with the same angle, so the light is 100% the same.

Please Zenimax, make this a thing so we aren't forced to go with the brownish-black from Coldharbour ash black, and instead get a real black colour from something meaningful and worthwhile, like having completed all Dark Anchor achievements.

Besides that though, I wish all of you at ZoS a happy new year!

    Oh let me second this! All the best colors are tied to unrealistic (for most of us) PvP achievements. ZOS you NEED to expand the colors available to everyone!!!!

    If you mix regular black with say, covenant blue in the secondary and/or tertiary spots, you can get a very good simulacrum of a daedric blued-black.

    Hopefully this will work as an adequate alternative until something better comes along.

    It still doesn't change on the Coldharbour ash black being dark brown and not black though.

    And frankly, there just needs to be a LOT more colors, and those readily available, in general!

    You sir, are a brilliant Necromancer!

    But yes indeed, it would be awesome to get a proper black dye like this, at least one that isn't gated behind months of PvP.

    I am perfectly cool with the idea of new dyes being crown store purchases. This way the achievement dyes are not invalidated and those who simply desire more ways to customize their characters may do so without being "forced" to participate in activities they dislike or have no interest in.

    I would love to have Legate Black or Palatine White, for example... those are colors I really want, and I'm no PVPer.

    But I must say I'd hate to see colors in the Crown Store. The idea behind the dyes has always been a way to "show off" your achievements and also an encouragement to go after them. Even with all the... "money grabbing" issues games might have with stores, ZOS has kept their word about this and no dyes are being sold in the store.

    I'd like it to stay this way, honestly. As much as there I dyes I really want and don't see me getting, I rather have it stay this way than risk the whole principles of the game, which would certainly work as precendet for all the other things that have also been said that "would never be sold"...
