Adding new prizes to the holidays is a very welcome idea, but really, Blizzard, really?!
Does this new hat look good on anyone?
Nope, didn’t think so.
Okay, so the bottom part of it is a pretty nifty looking helmet, and I think it would look awesome with a plume or a crest.
But as it is? No thanks, I’d rather not look like a stinkin’ Snobold.
Together, the shoulders and the helm look like something out of the next great Harrison Jones adventure. They look like the kind of thing one might find on little statuettes or idols arrayed around the altar of some forgotten goddess — incense burners that would have to be activated in a specific order and with specific types of incense.

I’ve added the Dressing Room preview of the whole Midsummer outfit to the Party Clothes page, but Kamalia refuses to waste a bank slot on this hat. For 350 Burning Blossoms, I’d much rather have another pet… perhaps a pale blue-trimmed scarlet-orange reskin of the Phoenix Hatchling?
If Ragnaros has been summoned inside Blackrock Mountain, on Azeroth, and the Twilight’s Hammer want to provoke an epic elemental battle, why the hex are they summoning Ahune inside the Slave Pens, on Draenor? That has never, ever made sense to me. WTB Heroic Blackfathom Deeps.
