All merchandise deals and offerings have the “while supplies last” disclaimer, so we felt we should also add this little detail. As for the Festive Hat. This hat is currently in-game and I predict this is, in fact, the free hat being given away. It is a red, velvety, Santa hat that can be skinned onto helmet gear. Once the skin is collected it will be stored in your Wardrobe, and reused via transmutation stones on any character at any time.
