    5.2 Darkmoon Top Hat

    Darkmoon Top Hat. +10% rep and exp for 1 hour. Consumed on use, Unique (20). And looks really great - a top-hat with fireworks on top.

    In patch 5.2 it will be sold by Gelvas Grimegate at the Faire for 10 Darkmoon Prize Tokens, and is also rarely (~5%) contained in Darkmoon Game Prize containers, which are the new reward for the 5 Darkmoon dailies. Darkmoon Game Prize typically contain a single Darkmoon Prize Token, but have a chance of containing almost anything Gelvas Grimegate sells.

    Darkmoon Top Hat are not bound, so the Unique (20) limit is currently fairly meaningless - one could just stockpile them across multiple characters. Unfortunately on the PTR (but not in Wowhead's data) the hats "require Darkmoon Faire", meaning that they all disappear once the Faire has ended. How good these hats ultimately function depends on how they are coded by time of release.

    Regardless, even if Darkmoon Top Hats are only good for 7 Faire days a month, there's a decent rep (especially) bonus to be gained. The main source of Darkmoon Prize Tokens to buy these hats will be the rare dungeon drop monthly turn-ins. Those have been declining in AH value of late, so now might be a good time to stock up on those drops.

    Does the buff from the hat stack with the buff ([WHEE!]) you get from riding the carousel on Darkmoon Island? If not, the hat would seem fairly pointless as the buff from the carousel is the same thing (unless the carousel is being removed). The only difference being that you don't need to return to the faire if you're using the hat.

    Exactly. That makes it much more useful and desirable

    If you get a chance, test it to make sure you can't mail it. Generally you'll be blocked from mailing items "with a limited duration" (holiday-bound) if you try, but sometimes Blizzard adds an item and you can for a while until they nerf it. If you can mail it, it won't disappear when the Holiday is over provided you leave it in the mail until you need it.

    @UtesDad It hasn't been possible to confirm stacking with WHEE! because the Carousel is broken on the PTR at the moment. I presume it will stack because as you say it, would be fairly pointless otherwise.

    Update: @Faxmonkey - good catch. It cannot be mailed due to "limited duration".

    I doubt it can be used for transmog if it's limited duration... I wish it could though.... nobles monocle + top hat = win

    How about they bring back the darkmoonfaire prize bags from before? Something new to buy them with, or even dense grinding stones. Since we havent had new stone in the last few expansions. I really miss buying up all the dense stone having 2 guild bank tabs of the grinding stones to turn in.

    They don't mention in the tooltip that they can only be used during the Faire. Has this actually been confirmed to be the case? Usually Blizzard adds something in the item text to state that. But, being PTR, maybe they haven't updated that yet.

    Just curious.
