- Main article: Avatar Customizations
- Body allows you to choose your body size (slim or broad), as well as one of the available shirt colors. This shirt will be your default appearance until armor is purchased and worn, and even then, it can be displayed using the costume option. There are six free shirts available.
- Skin allows you to choose your skin color. Eight colors are available for free.
- Hair allows you to modify your hair color and your hairdo, as well as add facial hair, if you so desire. Five colors, five types of bangs (including "none"), and three types of long hair (including "none") are available for free.
- Extra allows you to choose extra accessories such as glasses, wheelchairs, flowers for your hair, earrings, animal ears, animal tails, and headbands. All except the animal ears and tails are free.
- Backgrounds allows you to choose backgrounds for your avatar. The same tab is opened when you click Backgrounds in the User drop-down menu.
In the Edit Avatar modal, the customizations that are currently active are marked with a thick frame. Customizations that can be purchased have a darker grey background, and their gem price is shown. An individual customization such as a shirt, hair color, or skin color costs 2 gems, and entire sets can be purchased together for 5 gems. If you purchase an individual customization, the rest of the set it belongs to will still cost 5 gems afterwards.
Limited Edition Customizations
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.
Seasonal Edition Customizations
Seasonal Edition items are only available to purchase in a given time frame (e.g. the month of October or Grand Galas) but recur in the same fixed season (e.g. every Fall Festival) once a year without being changed. See Item Availability for a list of Seasonal Edition Avatar customizations.
- Main article: Backgrounds
The Backgrounds modal displays optional background scenery for your avatar. A new set of three backgrounds is released each month. Backgrounds may be purchased with 7 gems for one background or 15 gems for a set of three backgrounds. On the Backgrounds modal, when "Hide locked backgrounds" is switched off, the backgrounds are displayed on tabs (with one tab per year). When "Hide locked backgrounds" is switched on, all unlocked backgrounds of all years are shown together on the same page.
- Main article: Profile
The Profile tab lets you connect your personal information to the game. It includes your avatar, your display name, and a description of yourself (which can include your websites or other additional information), as well as a profile photo.
This information is available for other Habitica 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, stats, as well as any challenges you have won, by viewing your profile.
The Profile tab also displays information related to Daily Check-In Incentives, i.e., your total number of check-ins and your progress towards your next check-in prize, your account creation date, as well as your last login.
At the header, which always appear on all three (Profile, Stats, and Achievements) tabs, displays your level, class, HP, MP, and XP, as well as the option to Message (envelope icon) and/or Gift (gift box icon) the user shown. You can also choose to edit your profile, upon opening your own profile.
Display Name vs. Username
- Main article: Player Names
In the world of Habitica there are two different kinds of names—your Username and your display name:
- When you first create an Habitica 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>Edit. You will have the option to edit your display name and save it.
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.
Searching for Users
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 or Username (example: from the Party Wanted (Looking for a Group)) 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. You can also use the browser's search feature (Ctrl+F or ⌘+F) to look for their name in public guilds or Tavern - this will only work if they have recently posted and you're looking at the correct guild/place.
The Stats tab shows you the current statistics for your avatar. It can be seen by other Habiticans that opened your profile by clicking your name in chats.
- Your Equipment is the battle gear your character currently has equipped, which is set in the Equipment tab of your Inventory.
- Your Costume is the equipment your character is wearing for aesthetic purposes, which is also set in the Equipment tab of your Inventory.
- Your Background is the optional image that can be placed behind your avatar.
- Your active Pet (i.e., the one that appears with your avatar), its name, the total number of pets you have found, and your Beast Master progress are listed.
- Your active Mount (i.e., the one that appears with your avatar), its name, the total number of mounts you have tamed, and your Mount Master progress are listed.
- The Stats section is the breakdown of each of your abilities in regard to the class system: Strength, Intelligence, Constitution, and Perception. These are comprised of your character's base stat points from your level, plus weapons and armor stats, plus class bonus from those equipment, plus allocated points, plus any modifiers granted by and buffs. Other players are able to see these stats as well.
- The last section is where you will distribute your stat points if you choose not to use auto-allocation. An up arrow will appear below each stats when there's one or more unallocated stat points. The Automatic Allocation toggle is right above the four stats.
