Leveling Up Edit
Leveling up occurs after a player gains a sufficient number of experience points (XP). As players progress, they need more points to reach the next level than they needed to reach the level before it.
Leveling up regenerates all health points lost during the previous level, but not mana points. (You regain some mana points at the beginning of each day when your daily Cron runs.) Each level also raises all attributes by half a point.
Progression through levels is merely a sign of your own progress through your tasks. Comparing the speed at which you gain levels with that of other players is generally not meaningful because every player has their own playing style.
After unlocking the class system at level 10, for each additional level gained, you receive an attribute point that you can allocate to the attribute of your choice, using the Character Attributes page or the pop-up that appears when leveling up on the website. If you do not allocate your points using the pop-up, you get a notification that will take you to the Character Attributes page so you can allocate points. (You may also choose to allow Habitica to allocate points automatically.) The points are added to a base attribute level comprised of half a point per attribute per level.
Attribute points can be reallocated by spending gems on the Character Attributes page to change your class (you can pick the same class or choose a different one).
Attribute points are capped at level 100, so you do not receive additional attribute points after level 100.
Attribute points are lost when using a start over option that reduces your level, such as the Orb of Rebirth, but will be gained back and can be allocated as normal on leveling up. Additionally, one attribute point from a random attribute is lost when you die (when your HP reaches 0).
Perfect Days EditA Perfect Day gives you a further buff of one-half of your level to your stats, so on the day after completing a Perfect Day, your attribute score will be at least equal to your level, even if you have no gear or point allocation in that stat. If your level is an odd number, your buff is rounded up to the nearest whole number. For example, if your level is 7, your Perfect Day buff would be 4.
Orb of Rebirth Edit
At level 50 or above, you can use the Orb of Rebirth to reset your level back to one and to reset certain other aspects of your account. This can be useful if you missed certain features or want to try a different class from the beginning. It usually costs six gems, but becomes free once you reach level 100.
You receive bonuses and access to features upon achieving certain levels, including:
|1||Equipment appears in the Market and is pinned to a player's Wishlist when they complete their first task.|
|3||The drop system is unlocked and the player receives a wolf egg.|
|10||The class system is unlocked and the player can choose their class (Players can opt out of choosing a class temporarily and make the decision later). Mana points are also unlocked.|
|11||The player receives their first class skill.|
|12||The player receives their second class skill.|
|13||The player receives their third class skill.|
|14||The player receives their fourth and final class skill.|
The player receives a free Free Yourself of the Dragon's Influence quest scroll.
The player gets a copy of The Moonstone Chain quest scroll.
|100||An Orb of Rebirth may be purchased for free.|
1The player must complete the previous quest part before they can buy or use this quest scroll. They will receive a free scroll when they complete the previous part, if they are the quest owner.
Continuing after Level 100Edit
You can continue past level 100, but to keep the game balanced, your stats will not change and further attribute points will not be awarded. You can continue to gain new content as it is released, including quests, Limited Edition and Seasonal Edition avatar customizations, and equipment. However, no content will be released exclusively for level 100+ players.
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.|
