- Main article: Avatar Customizations
The Customize Avatar tab displays a number of options you can use to modify your avatar:
- Body allows you to choose your body size (slim or broad), as well as one of the available shirts. This shirt will be your default appearance until armor is purchased or worn, but may still be displayed using the costume option. There are six default shirts available, and further shirts can be purchased for gems.
- Accessories allows you to choose extra accessories such as a flower for your hair, eyewear, animal ears, or a wheelchair.
- Hairstyles and Hair Colors allows you to modify your hair type and color, as well as add facial hair or bangs, if you so desire. There are five default colors, three default bangs and three default bases - other bases and colors are available for gems.
- Skin allows you to choose your skin color. Eight colors are available as default, with others available for gems.
Avatar customizations, equipment costumes, and choice of pets and mounts can be used to dress up your avatar in interesting ways. If you are wearing a costume or equipment, shirt changes will only be visible if you have the shirt selected, but whichever shirt you clicked on most recently will be visible when you select the shirt.Customizations that can be purchased for gems will have a dark grey background. An individual customization such as shirt, hair color, or skin color costs 2 gems and the entire set can be purchased together for 5 gems. If you purchase an individual customization, the 2 gems cannot be applied later toward the entire set.
Limited Edition CustomizationsEdit
Limited Edition customizations are body, head, or skin settings that are not always available to the player. These may be purchased using gems. Although special items are only available for purchase for a limited period of time, they will remain available as avatar customizations once purchased. See Item Availability for a list of Limited Edition Avatar customizations.
Seasonal Edition Customizations EditSeasonal Edition items are only available to purchase in a given time frame (e.g. the month of October or Grand Galas) but recur in the same fixed season (e.g. every Fall Festival) once a year without being changed. See Item Availability for a list of Seasonal Edition Avatar customizations.
- Main article: Backgrounds
The Backgrounds modal displays optional background scenery for your avatar. A new set of three backgrounds is released each month. Backgrounds may be purchased with 7 gems for one or 15 gems for a set of three.
StatsEditThe Stats tab shows you the current statistics for your avatar.
- Your stats describe your current health, mana (if you are level 10 or higher), gold, level, and experience. These may be seen by other players.
- Your battle gear is the battle gear your character currently has equipped, which is set in the Equipment tab of your Inventory.
- Your costume is the equipment your character is wearing for aesthetic purposes, which is also set in the Equipment tab of your Inventory.
- Your background is the optional image that can be placed behind your avatar. The name of your background, the set it belongs to, and its release date are shown here.
- Your active pet (i.e., the one that appears with your avatar), the total number of pets you have found, and your Beast Master progress are listed.
- Your active mount (i.e., the one that appears with your avatar), the total number of mounts you have tamed, and your Mount Master progress are listed.
- Your attributes are your stats in regard to the class system: Strength, Intelligence, Constitution, and Perception. These are comprised of your character's base attribute points from your level, plus allocated points, plus any modifiers granted by weapons and armor and buffs. Other players are able to see these attributes as well.
- The character build section is where you will distribute your attribute points if you choose not to use auto-allocation. You can also change your class and re-allocate your attribute points for a fee of 3 gems by clicking the red button next to your current class.
- Main article: Achievements
The Achievements tab shows your accomplishments in the world of Habitica. These may be obtained by:
- Contributing to Habitica
- Collecting perfect days, streaks, equipment, or pets.
- Winning challenges

- Main article: Profile
The Profile tab lets you connect your personal information to the game. It includes your profile photo, your display name, and a description of yourself (which can include your websites or other additional information).
This information is available for other Habitica members to view on your profile if they click on your name in any of the forums under the Social tab, or by any of your party members by clicking on your avatar. Other players can also see any of your achievements, as well as any challenges you have won, by viewing your profile.
The Profile tab also displays information related to Daily Check-In Incentives, i.e., your total number of check-ins and your progress towards your next check-in prize.
Display Name vs. Username Edit
In the world of Habitica there are two different kinds of names—your username and your display name:
- When you first create an Habitica account, you choose your username. This is what you use to login to the game.
- What appears in messages you post in the Tavern,guilds, and party chat, along with what is displayed on your avatar, is your display name.
At the time of account creation, your display name is set to be the same as your username. Afterwards you can change your display name and your username.
To change your display name, click on User>Profile>Edit. You will have the option to edit your display name and save it.
Currently the only way to find your starting date is to click on your display name from a party chat or Tavern chat. Your profile will pop up, displaying your user information, stats, and achievements. You can find the starting date and your last login date in the top left corner under your display name.
- Main article: Sharing
Sharing generates a link to your avatar, player statistics, and limited profile that you can share with social media sites Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. You can customize the message and add more information about Habitica if you wish. You also have the option of downloading a picture of your avatar.
Searching for UsersEdit
Currently it is not possible to search for another player using their display name. To contact them, you can click on their display name from a post in the Tavern chat or guild chat, challenge they have created, or your Inbox (if you have sent or received a private message from them). They can give you their user ID (example: from theArchery) so you can invite them to a party. If you want to see their profile, use their User ID and the method described above in Sharing to create the link.
Sharing Avatar Link Generates Generic Link
|Description:||Using the avatar sharing feature will sometimes generate a generic link to Habitica's task page rather than to your profile. This does not mean that your tasks will be visible when you share the link! Instead, anyone using that link would be taken to Habitica's login page.|
|Solution:||If you would like to share your profile link, you can delete the tasks link and replace it with "https://habitica.com/static/front/#?memberId=X", where "X" must be replaced with your own unique User ID (available from Settings -> API).|
