The Rogue is a class that citizens of Habitica can choose when they reach level 10.

Rogues earn more gold and find drops more often than other classes. They also earn more frequent and rewarding critical hits. Their skills can generate gold and experience from tasks, provide their party with a buff to gold and drop earning rate, and allow the Rogue to dodge damage that originated from missed Dailies. They are valuable allies to have in collection quests.

Benefits[edit | edit source]

  • As a beginner in Habitica, players will have a lot of items to buy as they progress through the levels. Earning more gold will help them to obtain the best equipment for their adventure relatively quickly. Having more gold also makes it easier to buy health potions, which are useful for players who struggle with unfinished Dailies and negative Habits.
  • Rogues have a skill that grants gold and experience and scales with task value. As a task value has no cap, Rogues are able to level and gather gold extremely quickly, limited only by their mana points!
  • Rogues are able to buff their party members' Perception, helping them find more items and gain more gold.
  • Rogues will be able to relax a little on missed Dailies, as they can use the Stealth skill to dodge damage at the end of the day. This is also useful during a boss quest to prevent the boss from inflicting damage to your party members because of your own missed Dailies. (However, players that need to use this consistently may wish to reconsider their Dailies list!)
  • The Rogue's higher drop rate can speed up completion of collection quests, where players need to find a certain amount of items.
  • Increased drop rates also make it easier for the player to achieve the Beast Master achievement, as well as making it easier to turn pets into mounts.

In short, the Rogue is a good class for those who are not interested in becoming a Healer, but still want to be able to survive relatively well while gaining lots of items and GP when a task is completed. This is ideal for people who want to unlock the best possible gear as soon as possible. This also benefits people who have custom Rewards and people attempting to earn the Beast Master achievement.

Skills[edit | edit source]

Rogue skills and their descriptions, as shown on Habitica's iOS app. Skills that are listed in black can be used immediately. Skills in grey require more mana before casting.

  • Consult the Skills and Buff pages for more information on how skills and buffs work.
  • All skills' effects are based on the caster's stats at the time of casting, not on the attributes of other party members.
  • Some skills are also affected by the value of the task they are cast on.
  • Some skills adjust the value of the task they are cast on. They have no ongoing effect on the task.
  • Skills never mark a task as complete. You do not have to complete a task before or after casting a skill on it. You can cast a skill on a complete or incomplete task.
  • All skills that buff the party also buff the caster, unless stated otherwise.
  • Buffs are applied immediately and persist until each party member's next Cron.
  • Skills do not affect quests, unless stated otherwise.
  • Consult the "Skills and Buffs" section in the Data Display Tool to learn more about the precise effect each skill will have when you cast it.

Pickpocket

MP Cost 10 MP
Unlock Level 11
Target Task
Description You rob a nearby task and gain gold! (Based on: PER)
Maximize Effects To increase the effects, maximize your PER and cast on your bluest tasks.
Critical Hit? Does not occur.
Notes Cast on a task to gain gold. Does not affect the task in any way.
Calculation Bonus = (Task Value + 1) + (PER * 0.5)

(If Task Value < 0, then 0 will be used instead of Task Value)
Gold = 25 * Bonus / (Bonus + 75)

Examples For a Green task with value = 4, and PER = 25, Bonus = 18, so Gold = 5

For a Green task with value = 4, and PER = 125, Bonus = 67.5 so Gold = 12

Changes Weaker at very high stats

Uses diminishing returns
Is not capped at 25, but diminishing returns will give a similar effect.

Backstab
Icon Shop backStab.png
MP Cost 15 MP
Unlock Level 12
Target Task
Description You betray a foolish task and gain gold and XP! (Based on: STR)
Maximize Effects To increase the effects, maximize your STR and cast on your bluest tasks.
Critical Hit? There is a 30% base chance of getting a critical hit. This will increase the XP and gold earned. To increase the chance that a critical hit occurs and to increase the bonus XP and gold from a critical hit, increase your STR.
Notes Cast on a task to gain gold and Experience. Does not affect the task in any way.
Calculation

Critical Hit Chance = 30% * (1 + (STR / 100))
Bonus = (Task Value + 1) + (STR * 0.5)
(If Task Value < 0, then 0 will be used instead of Task Value)
XP = 75 * Bonus / (Bonus + 50)
Gold = 18 * Bonus / (Bonus + 75)

Examples For a Green task with value = 4 and STR = 25, Bonus = 18, so Gold = 3 and XP = 19

For a Green task with value = 4 and STR = 125, Bonus = 68, so Gold = 9 and XP = 43

Backstab Gold based on STR and Task Value.png
Backstab XP based on STR and Task Value.png

Changes Does not change the task value

Uses diminishing returns
Is not capped at 75 XP and 18 gold, but diminishing returns will give a similar effect.

Target Party
Description Your tricky talents buff your whole Party's Perception! (Based on: Unbuffed PER)
Maximize Effects To increase the effects, maximize your PER with stat points or gear (buffs to PER will not make this skill stronger).
Critical Hit? Does not occur.
Notes Increases the PER of every player in the party.
Calculation PER increase = Unbuffed PER * 100 / (Unbuffed PER + 50)
Examples For unbuffed PER = 25, you and your party will get a PER increase of 33

For unbuffed PER = 125, you and your party will get a PER increase of 71

Stat Buff based on Unbuffed Stat.png

Changes Much stronger (because PER has a relatively weak effect on drops and GP earnings)

Uses diminishing returns
It is not capped at 100, but diminishing returns will give a similar effect
Uses unbuffed stat to determine the strength of the skill

Stealth
Icon Shop stealth.png
MP Cost 45 MP
Unlock Level 14
Target Player
Description With each cast, a few of your undone Dailies won't cause damage tonight. Their streaks and colors won't change. (Based on: PER) (Cast multiple times to affect more Dailies.)
Maximize Effects To increase the effects, maximize your PER.
Critical Hit? Does not occur.
Notes Provides a buff that causes a certain number of uncompleted Dailies to be ignored by the next Cron: their streaks will not reset, their value/color will not change, and they will not cause damage to the player or to their party members during a boss quest. The number of Dailies that have been hidden by Stealth can be seen using the Data Display Tool.
Calculation Number of dodged Dailies = 0.64 * (Total Number of Dailies [both due and not due]) * PER / (PER + 55)
Examples For PER = 25 and 5 total Dailies, you will be able to dodge 1 uncompleted Daily

For PER = 125 and 10 total Dailies, you will be able to dodge 5 uncompleted Dailies

Changes Weaker (a single cast will hide at most 64% of your due Dailies)

No longer wasted on Grey Dailies
Uses diminishing returns
Bug fix: when Stealth hides a due Daily, the Daily's checklist items are now unticked by Cron

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Rogues wield a weapon in each hand. While they can use shields and two handed weapons from the other classes or from non-class sources such as Quests or the Enchanted Armoire, only Rogue equipment will give a class bonus. The weapon that is used in the shield-hand slot is purchased separately.

Achievement-ultimate-rogue2x.png

Gathering all the Rogue Basic Gear gives players the Ultimate Gear - Rogue achievement. It costs 1340 gold to buy the whole set of basic Rogue gear.

The tables below show the pieces of equipment that can be purchased through the Rewards column by players who do not already own them.
