The Warrior is a class that citizens of Habitica can select when they reach level 10. Additionally, all players begin the game as Warriors, though with limited abilities because mana for skills is not available until a class is chosen. After level 10, play style changes the least for players who choose the Warrior class.

Warriors deal high damage to bosses and have more (and more powerful) critical hits on tasks, while also having good defense against task-based damage. Warrior skills can deal extra damage to bosses, increase the warrior's own defense, and buff party members' strength and defense. They are powerful allies to have for dealing damage in boss battles.

Benefits [edit | edit source]

  • Warriors have high Strength, which causes them to have a much higher chance of dealing a critical hit and to receive greater benefits from each critical hit. This provides random rewards that some players may find especially motivating.
  • Their high Strength also causes Warriors to deal a higher amount of damage to bosses, both normally and when dealing a critical hit. The skill Brutal Smash deals further damage to bosses when it is used on a non-challenge task. (Brutal Smash cannot be used on challenge tasks.) Together, high base damage and high damage from skills allow Warriors to damage bosses very effectively. Assisted by a Warrior's high damage and critical hit chance, as well as the Warrior skill Brutal Smash, parties are able to complete boss quests much faster.
  • When in a party, Warriors can buff (increase the stat points of) the Strength and Constitution of their party members. This can help the party deal more damage, earn more critical hits, and take less damage from negative Habits and missed Dailies.

The Warrior's high Constitution aids in survival, while their high Strength increases experience, gold, and drop rewards in a balanced manner through improving the player's chance of dealing critical hits.

At level 10, you can choose to stay a Warrior when you enable the class system. You can also choose to allow Habitica to allocate stat points automatically. If you do so, the game will then largely carry on as it had before classes were unlocked.

Skills[edit | edit source]

Warrior skills and their descriptions, as shown on Habitica's Android 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.

Brutal Smash
Icon Shop smash.png
MP Cost 10 MP
Unlock Level 11
Target Task
Description You make a task more blue/less red and deal extra damage to Bosses! (Based on: STR)
Maximize Effects To increase the effects, maximize your STR.
Critical Hit? To increase the chance of a critical hit and to increase the effects of the critical hit (i.e., to increase the effects of the skill if a critical hit occurs), increase your CON.
Notes Increases the value of a non-challenge task (makes it more blue / less red) and does damage to a quest boss.
Calculation Change in task value without a critical hit = 2.5 * STR / (STR + 35)

Damage to the boss without a critical hit = 55 * STR / (STR + 70)
As STR increases, the change in task value gets closer to 2.5 and the damage to the boss gets closer to 55. Those values are never exceeded.

Examples With STR=20, the change in task value is 0.9 and the boss damage is 13.

With STR=50, the task value change is 1.47 and the boss damage is 23.
With STR=90, the task value change is 1.8 and the boss damage is 31.
With STR=150, the task value change is 2.03 and the boss damage is 38.
These numbers will be larger if a critical hit occurs.
