Event Postcard

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 special pets, and as such cannot be fed or raised into mounts.

Veteran Pets[]

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. Like all other sequences, you get the first one for your first major change, etc.

Halloween Items[]

Annually for Habitoween (Halloween or thereabouts) players are given special pumpkin companions, until the collection is complete with the Royal Purple Pumpkin mount.

Note: There was an error with the migration during the 2022 Fall Festival and as a result, many people received more than their current year's designated Pet or Mount. These will not be taken away, so everyone affected should simply consider themselves 1 year ahead of the usual sequence.

Take This Armor Set[]

The Take This equipment pieces are 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. This set of challenges repeats in a cycle, so Habiticans who have missed some of the challenges still have a chance at completing the item set.
