Background forest

A forest background

Background violet

The default background: a vibrant violet backdrop

Backgrounds are optional scenery that can be placed behind player avatars. They have no in-game effect and exist only for aesthetic value. As of March 28, 2017, the violet background from the Plain Background Set is the default background (previously, the default background was a featureless light slate color). All existing players were also given the violet background and can choose to equip it if they wish to.

Using BackgroundsEdit

Backgrounds

Accessing the Backgrounds sub-tab.

To view available backgrounds and to change your current background, navigate to the backgrounds sub-tab under the User tab (direct link). Then, click on the one you want to use. If you click on a purchasable background you do not currently own, you will be prompted to purchase it.

If you would prefer to have a grey featureless background, click on the picture of your current background on the Backgrounds sub-tab. Your background will be a solid light slate color (#DAE3E5), which was the previous default.

In the apps, backgrounds are located under Menu > Customize Avatar (iOS) or Menu > Avatar (Android). Currently, you cannot enable the solid light slate background from the apps.

Unlocking BackgroundsEdit

Free, unlockable backgrounds were introduced as prizes with the Daily Check-In Incentives feature. For every day that a player logs in to Habitica, their check-in counter will increase. Once a player has checked in for a certain number of days, they will receive a prize.

Available Unlockable BackgroundsEdit

As mentioned above, the violet background from the Plain Background Set is the default background. The rest of the Plain Background Set is unlocked after a player logs in to Habitica for two days.

Purchasing BackgroundsEdit

Three backgrounds are released each month and can be purchased with gems. An individual background costs 7 gems and the entire monthly set of three backgrounds can be purchased together for 15 gems. If you purchase an individual background, the 7 gems cannot be applied later toward the entire set. The only free backgrounds are the slate color as well as the default and unlockable backgrounds in the Plain Background Set.

HabitRPG-Locked-Iceberg-Background
Backgrounds can be purchased on the backgrounds sub-tab under the User tab (direct link). Those that are available for purchase will have a grey border with a white lock in the corner. Buying them will remove the border so you can easily see which backgrounds you have purchased and can use.
