Special event items, such as pets, mounts and equipment are occasionally released to commemorate special events, holidays or other occasions, or as rewards for Official Habitica Challenges. These items are released in specific sequences. If the player is experiencing the event for the first time, they will receive the first item in the series. The next time they experience the event, they will receive the second, and so on.
When receiving items in a certain sequence, it is not possible to miss out on early items. The first item received will always be the first in the sequence, regardless of how many times the event has occurred in the past.
Pets given this way have always been rare pets, and as such cannot be fed or raised into mounts.
Veteran pets are released with major changes to Habitica. They are larger, battle-scarred versions of some of the Generation 1 pets. Unlike most of the sequences below, Veteran Pets are not given annually, only on major updates.
|Veteran Wolf||Pet||On 4 September, 2013, when the website was rewritten in Angular, making it much more stable and removing critical bugs.|
On 31 July, 2015, to celebrate Habitica Naming Day, when the website was changed from HabitRPG to Habitica.
On 21 May, 2016, when API v3 was released.
On September 28, 2017, when the Habitica Redesign was released.
|Pet||On October 23, 2018, when the Habitica Unique Username system was released. At the time, a Veteran pet was given to only those players who had confirmed their Usernames, or who had had their Usernames automatically confirmed for them. When all other players had their Usernames confirmed after that date, they were given a Veteran pet. This will continue indefinitely for new players and some new players will be given a Veteran pet as soon as they register their account because their Usernames are automatically confirmed on creation.|
Annually, on Thanksgiving or "Turkey Day", players are given special turkey companions and a turkey costume.

Take This Armor SetEdit
The Take This equipment pieces given as rewards for monthly challenges in the Take This Challenge Series follow the ladder format of event item sequences, though they differ from others in that the equipment pieces are only given to users who participate in the challenges, rather than all users who were members of Habitica when a certain event occurred. There are more challenges than there are items in the armor set, so Habiticans who have missed some of the challenges still have a chance at completing the item set.
