  • Before the December 17, 2009 update, festival hats used your character's headgear slot. They had an armor rating of 0 and could be infused and upgraded with runes, some of them, such as the Mummy Mask, even had an insignia slot until then. Now, festival hats are Costume headpieces, and effectively fit on top of your armor, but visually remove and replace whatever your normal armor headpiece is.
    • Festival hats that were created prior to that update are still able to be worn in the headgear slot.
