Experience Points (XP) track a player's progress within Habitica. Players gain experience primarily through completing Dailies, To-Dos, and positive Habits. Experience can also be gained from certain skills, quests, and the Enchanted Armoire. Your experience bar is located under the health bar and is colored yellow. It can also be easily identified by the star icon to the left of the bar.
When a player's experience bar fills up, the player gains a level and their experience bar is reset to start their progress towards the next level; any extra XP are carried into the new bar.
Level-Based ProgressionEditYour progress in Habitica is tracked through levels and experience. You can see how much experience you need to reach the next level by looking at your experience bar. On the right hand side of the bar, you'll see the exact number of points you've gained while in the current level and the total number of points that need to be earned in this level before you level up.
At level 1, it takes 150 experience points to level up. The amount of experience needed to level up increases with every level to keep the game challenging as you establish better habits and collect better equipment. The Experience Level Chart shows the amount of experience needed to reach every level. The amounts follow the formula .
Your experience gain over time can be viewed in a graph by clicking on the graph icon in your experience bar. This can be useful for tracking overall progress. Click the icon again to close the graph.
Experience GainEditExperience gain for a given task is determined by an algorithm that tracks how consistently you complete that task.
You can get a rough idea of how much XP a task is worth by looking at the color of the task and its difficulty. Yellow tasks offer a moderate amount of experience. As you complete a Daily or Habit consistently, its color will shift towards blue and the XP given by the task will decrease. If you do poorly on a Daily or Habit, its color will shift towards red and more XP will be gained on completion. This encourages you to focus on your weaknesses; bluer tasks indicate that you are doing well and need less motivation to complete them.
If a task has its difficulty set to "hard", the task will give twice as much XP as it would if it were set to "easy". A "medium" difficulty task will be worth 50% more than an "easy" one. A "trivial" task is worth 10% of an "easy" task.The exact value of a task can be determined by clicking the graph icon on the right hand side of the task to display a graph (click the icon again to close it). A lower value in the graph indicates a redder task, which is worth more XP.
The graph shows historical information, with more being data being kept for subscribers than for non-subscribers because storage of significant amounts of data is expensive. Refer to Task History Compression for more information.
Players can increase experience gained by increasing their Intelligence attribute (Loading Page Tip #19). Additionally, if you are playing in a party that casts regular buffs and party members are in the same time zone, it’s best to cast buffs early in the morning so the effects last through the entire day (Loading Page Tip #5). If party members are in different time zones or you are having difficulty coordinating when members cast buffs, then another way to increase experience gained is to delay marking items as complete until later in the day when you are likely to have a higher buffed Intelligence attribute. For Dailies, you can add a single checklist item called "Done" as a memory aid and check it when you finish the task. Then at the end of the day, check off all the finished Dailies themselves. Unlike with To-Dos, the checklist won't modify the rewards from the Daily.
Gaining Extra XP Doesn't Trigger a Level Up
|Description:||When a quest finishes and grants you enough Experience (XP) for you to level up, or when the Enchanted Armoire grants you enough XP to level up, the actual level update doesn't happen.|
|Solution:||Tick off a To-Do, Habit, or Daily. This will increase your level. None of your excess XP will be lost.|
