Is Purple Too Rare?

I've noticed when you pick the colors of your base outfit in character creation, there is no purple option. Why is this? You got to pick purple as a color in Wizards, but not here? Is it because purple was the rarest and most expensive color in the past?

Yet we can still dye our gear purple.

I'm pretty sure there is a purple option when you create your pirate. I've chosen it a couple of times. There just aren't multiple shades of purple like when you go to buy clothing in the game or to the dye shop but that's true for all the colors. Not every shade of every color is available when creating a pirate.

Are you talking about the pirate's base clothing or the flag options? I've tried all the options and there is no purple for the pirates.

I have friends that have flags so purple I pick on them about it.
Its there somewhere. I see purple flags, purple ElToros/companions, etc.
Its been a topic of conversation among my friends... their purpleness..

Maybe its just not a shade your looking for?

I'm talking about the clothing. Two of my pirates have purple on their base clothing that I gave them when I created my pirate and I just went in to create a new pirate now to make sure I wasn't crazy and I'm looking right at the purple so...

I tested it, purple is indeed in the options, for girls only. Well at least in the game we'll be able to freely pick our colors.

gender stereotype again? im pretty sure pink is only available for girls in W101 (though i heard the catchphrase "real men wear pink"). come on, let boys choose whatever color they like
