Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail Hat or No Hat

6 Jun 2024

While Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers is considered one of, if not the best expansion the critically acclaimed MMO has received in its over 10 year history, it also brought with it one design choice that has left many players frustrated. Specifically, the visibility of head equipment on Viera and Hrothgar.

With Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail mere weeks away, we wanted to help answer one of the biggest questions that Viera and Hrothgar players are sure to have: “Hat or no Hat?”

During our recent hands-on time with a preview build of Dawntrail at the North American Media Tour, we took a few minutes to see just what exactly appeared on our character’s noggin while on a Viera.

Of course, it is important to note that until the servers go live, Dawntrail is still in development and it’s possible that some of these barren heads and faces may see some additions between now and release.


Good news for Viera in this group! As of right now, you have hats (or otherwise visible head equipment) for your new Job specific armor!

No Hat

We hate to be the one to tell you this…but if you play any of these jobs, you currently don’t have a hat for Dawntrail. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for you and hope it changes by release!

We hope your favorite Jobs made the list!
