Hi,

It is written that there are customizable slots on the hats. My question is what can we put there?

Thank!

Mathieu

it has room for two things, one is a skill bonus of your choice.
the other is a power from a list, which is a nice list.
e.g. a stat bonus, seeker, fortification, false life, potency, wizardry, natural ac, sneak attack, etc.
and it all comes at a nice minimum level. best of all you can buy multiple hats.

note that if you are hanging your minos helm make sure to keep fort on some item :P

how? i'm deciding on seeker and a skill, which is either haggle or jump.

how what? you can have seeker and one skill, make it jump.
to have haggle buy a second hat using doubloons, you only need it when selling so can be the cheapest hat.

Or just grab a +15 haggle item off the AH, much easier.

Hat skills should be something you need all the time, like Balance, Jump, Spot or Concentration.

Hence the jump, but a second hat for haggle is still worth a shot because it is at lower minimum level.
And you can couple it with cha +6 also at lower level.
And of course, because +15 off the AH is not always cheap, while the hat only takes your time.

For my WF tank-
Seeker 6, +15 intimadate - the HoGF will put me to 100% Fort :)

One way to look at it - what skill +15 is worth more than 20 HP?

A monk (or caster) may value +15 Concentration over 20 HP --> Make a HeavyFort +15 Concentration hat

Seeker is a bonus found on items and weapons that grants a + to confirm critical and the same + to critical damage before multipliers. So, a scimitar (x2 crit) with +6 seeker would do an extra 12 points of damage on a confirmed critical

Thanks! Do you know where can I find these kinds of add-ons for the hats?

Thanks again!

Hat upgrades are located in the Hat box.

This list is a good start---

might not be 100% correct...

When the event re-opens - you can look in the box at the "options". It also should show you the cost.

Hi,

What do you suggest to add to the hat for a lvl 3 paladin and 2 rogues? I am now planning to focus on paladin for the next levels. I mainly play solo.

Thanks again!
