Players who already have a subscription at the start of a month receive that month's Mystery Items within the first three days of the month (at different times for different subscribers). Anyone who starts a subscription during a month receives that month's Items as soon as the subscription is created.

On the website, a notification appears on the toolbar when new Mystery Items have been given to a subscriber. Click on the notification to go to your Inventory page (direct link). In the "Special" section on the Inventory page, you will see a gift box, with a number that indicates how many items it contains. Click on it until the number reaches zero. You will then find the items on your Equipment page (direct link). If you don't see them, reload the site and click on the gift box again.

Once the month has passed, the Mystery Items will be available only to subscribers who have a Mystic Hourglass, which is earned by having a subscription for three consecutive months. In addition, Mystic Hourglasses allow Habiticans to purchase Mystery Items from the far future.

Information for Developers

This section contains information of interest to Habitica developers. It is not of use for normal gameplay or task management.
Show/Hide the Information for Developers

When a Mystery Item is ready to be released, the images and code required for it are deployed to the production site, and then an admin will update and run the /migrations/users/mystery-items.js script. Updating that script involves adding the "keys" for the new items to the MYSTERY_ITEMS array. Each key uniquely defines one item; for example, weapon_mystery_201505 refers to the Mystery Item weapon that was released in May 2015. The script searches through the user collection in Habitica's database and for every user it finds who has an active subscription, it adds the new items to their account.

The script can take many minutes to run, so it is possible for some users to get their items before others. If you see a user in the Tavern saying that they haven't received their items shortly after other users have started wearing them, this is probably the reason why. If a few hours have passed, the user should reload the Habitica website and if they still don't have the new items (a very rare occurrence!), then they should report it in the Report a Bug guild.

If a developer wants to add Mystery Items to an account on their local install for testing, they can either use that script or run a database update command directly. For example, the command below will add the Mystery Items for November and December 2018 to the gift box in the market for the user with the User ID is 12345678-b5b9-4bb4-8b82-123456789abc:

> db.users.update({_id: '12345678-b5b9-4bb4-8b82-123456789abc'}, {$set: {
    'purchased.plan.mysteryItems': [
        'head_mystery_201811', 'weapon_mystery_201811',
        'headAccessory_mystery_201812', 'back_mystery_201812'
    ],
}})
