User sub-tabs2

The User sub-tabs.

The User tab displays the player's personal information. A player can view their profile by clicking on the User button in the navigation bar or their avatar in the top left corner of the HabitRPG window when on the Tasks page (direct link). From here, the player can navigate through a number of tabs, with the Avatar tab selected initially by default. 

The User tab has four sub-tabs of its own that allow players to:

  • Customize their avatar.
  • Buy and use backgrounds.
  • View current player statistics and achievements.
  • Connect real life information to the game.



The Avatar Customization Screen

Main article: Avatar

The Avatar tab (direct link) 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
  • Head 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. There is also an option to add a flower to your hair, which was introduced as part of the Spring Fling event.
  • 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 CustomizationsEditar

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.

Stats and AchievementsEditar

The Stats & Achievements tab (direct link) shows you the current statistics for your avatar.

On this page, you can see your current equipment, attributes, pets found, and character build, as well as any achievements you have attained. 

  • Your stats describe your current health, gold, level, mana (if you are level 10 or higher), and experience. These may be seen by other players.
  • Your attributes are your stats in regard to the class system. These are comprised of your character's base attributes points, plus any modifiers granted by weapons or armor. 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 for a fee of 3 gems by clicking the red button next to your current class.
  • Your achievements are your accomplishments in the world of HabitRPG. These may be obtained through contributing, as well as collecting streaks, armor, or pets. Some special events provide achievements for using event-specific items, or for merely having an account during the event.

Main article: Profile

The Profile tab (direct link) 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 HabitRPG 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 by doing this, as well as any challenges you have won.

Display Name vs. Username Editar

In the world of HabitRPG there are two different kinds of names--your username and your display name:

  • When you first create an HabitRPG 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. You will have the option to edit your display name and save it.

To change your username, click on Settings>Site and navigate to the Registration form. Enter your new username, then save it by clicking the "Submit" button.

Starting DateEditar


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.


Share Button Lower Left
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 HabitRPG if you wish. You also have the option of downloading a picture of your avatar.

Searching for UsersEditar

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 the Archery)  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.
