I am going to create a pre searing and compare how I did in Elona... where I got 2 drops in 3 hours.
And I am playing solo, nkuvu's question.

Things started out slowly for me but once I figured out the route that was working best, things picked up. I have gotten:
I've also gotten a few +15/50% inscriptions off the runs as well as a few Survivor and Radiant insignias and some other minor runes and insignias. Also, don't forget all the other stackable items I now have:
77 Skale Teeth
17 Chunks Of Drake Flesh
12 Iboga Petals
32 Skale Fins
71 Juvinile Termite Legs (I stopped picking these up)
36 Spider Webs
For those of you not having any luck, try this route. There are plenty of mobs and its a fairly quick run.

To answer the question, I was playing either with a group of people just running around, clearing (elite capping), then tried my hubby, one hero and me, then finally decided to give in, and go solo beating on the level ones on the island. Then, I finally got dyes. But, I'm sorry, I do not get any enjoyment out of being a level 20 beating up level 1-6 enemies. There is no skill involved, and no fun. So, I settled for my 3 dyes, and am going back to actually playing in a way that involves skill.
Please don't take this as me whining or complaining, because, honestly, I don't REALLY need the dye. I would have liked to have gotten some brown dye, but it's really not the end of the world for me.
I just kinda expected to see dyes in regular gameplay. I didn't solo at all during the greenie weekend, and only a few times went with full human teams, and still got a pile of nifty greenies, which my new heroes are loving.
As a random side note, this was helping me to map areas of Elona! :) And during my newbie island minion zerg for dyes, I got enough silk to keep my mesmer in new duds for quite some time!

like i said before, my luck began back in halloween and since then i have got:
2 white, 2 black, 7 brown, 4 silver, 6 red, 10 green, 3 blue, 5 purple, 12 orange, 4 yellow, for a total of 55 dyes since halloween.
i've actually played on tuesday and wednesday then only restarted saturday.
i've been doing almost the same route vader did, so if any of you aren't so lucky, try doing that solo, although i've had times doing 3 runs and getting 15 dyes on that, and others where i didn't get any, so all i can tell you is: try :)

I think I just have bad luck.
As for the previous question about group status, I've tried solo, with hench, and with one hero.
I'm using new character who is now lvl 8. That shouldnt make a difference though.
But anyways, I'll keep trying.

Uhh, I've been having bad luck the whole weekend, but today I got my first ever white dye and I'm proud And happier, since I also got a silver dye. Which I like :)
