The Mage (previously known as the Wizard) is a class that citizens of Habitica can select when they reach level 10. 

Mages deal high damage to tasks, gaining experience faster than other classes. Mages can cast spells on multiple tasks and party members. They are also powerful classes to have for boss battles.


  • Mages can level up faster than other classes, since their primary attribute is Intelligence. Leveling up restores HP and provides attribute points.
  • The Chilling Frost skill provides the unique ability to "freeze" streaks. This may be valuable to players who value long streaks and feel that it's okay to allow an occasional lapse without losing their progress.
  • Like Warriors, Mages have an ability (Burst of Flames) that can deal extra damage to bosses.
  • Mages can also increase the party's Intelligence, increasing their rate of experience gain, or restore their companions' mana points (MP). This can motivate party members to be more aggressive in completing their own tasks, or it can allow any of the other classes to use extra skills in an emergency.
  • With their skills, a party of high-level Mages has the potential for generating limitless amounts of MP, which translates to unlimited buffs to Intelligence, which leads to unlimited experience gain.


  • Consulta las páginas Habilidades y potenciadores para más información sobre el funcionamiento de las habilidades y los potenciadores.
  • Todos los efectos de las habilidades se basan en los atributos del que lanza la habilidad en el momento de hacerlo, no en los atributos de los demás compañeros de equipo.
  • Algunas habilidades también se ven afectadas por el valor de la tarea sobre la que se lanzan.
  • Ciertas habilidades ajustan el valor de la tarea sobre la que se lanzan. No tienen ningún efecto continuo sobre la tarea.
  • Las habilidades nunca marcan una tarea como completada. No tienes que completar una tarea antes o después de usar una habilidad sobre la misma. Puedes usar una habilidad tanto sobre tareas completadas como sobre tareas sin completar.
  • Todas las habilidades que potencian al equipo también potencian al lanzador, salvo que se indique lo contrario.
  • Los potenciadores se aplican de forma inmediata y persisten hasta el siguiente Cron de cada miembro del equipo.
  • Las habilidades no afectan a las misiones, salvo que se indique lo contrario.

Burst of Flames
MP Cost 10 MP
Unlock Level 11
Target Task
Description Flames burst from your hands. You gain XP, and you deal extra damage to

Bosses! (Based on: INT)

Maximize Effects To increase the effects, maximize your INT and cast the skill on your bluest task.
Critical Hit? To increase the chance of a critical hit and to increase the effects of the critical hit (i.e., to increase the effects of the skill if a critical hit occurs), increase your PER.
Notes Increases the player's Experience and does damage to a quest boss.
Calculation The damage to the boss without critical hits is INT/10 rounded to the next integer.

For XP, Bonus = (Task Value + 1) + (PER * 0.075)

(If Task Value < 0, then Task Value will be set to 0)
XP = 75 * Bonus / (Bonus + 37.5)

Examples With INT = 20 the boss damage without critical hits = 2.

With INT 57 is 6.
With INT 91 is 10.
With INT 150 is 15.

Without a critical hit and with PER = 25, a green Task Value = 4, Bonus = 7 and XP = 12
Without a critical hit and with PER = 25, a bright blue Task Value = 18, Bonus = 21 and XP = 27
Without a critical hit and with PER = 125, a green Task Value = 4, Bonus = 14 and XP = 20
Without a critical hit and with PER = 125, a bright blue Task Value = 18, Bonus = 28 and XP = 32

Changes Does not change the task value

Mage weapons are the only two-handed items in the game. They use both the weapon slot and the shield/off-hand slot. Equipping a Mage weapon will automatically unequip your shield or off-hand weapon, meaning that you cannot use an item in the off-hand slot if you are using a Mage weapon. Conversely, if you equip a weapon or shield in your off-hand slot, it unequips the Mage weapon. You will see a message: "(Mage Weapon Name) is two handed."

It costs 1210 gold to buy every piece of Mage equipment. The World Event sets each cost 310 gold.
