For those of you who tried us out before (maybe back when we were called HabitRPG?) and are just now coming back with brand new determination to level up, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention three in-game elements that you can use to reset yourself. For those who’ve been with us more recently, maybe you’re looking for ways to scrape the slate clean and start anew. Here are some options.
Reset Account: If you’re returning from a long hiatus and want to start all over again with a clean slate and a training sword, you can do a partial reset by going to the Settings Gear > Site and looking in the section marked “Danger Zone”. There’s a red button there labeled “Reset Account” that will perform as advertised. (There’s another red button next to it, “Delete Account”, but you’re not reading through all this text and opting for that choice, are you?)
Rebirth and Fortify (gem-purchasable): If Habitica used to rock your socks off but you feel like like there’s less and less motivation to stick with it now that you’ve achieved countless honors and collected all the gear, using the Orb of Rebirth offers an opportunity to experience it all over again, while keeping your tasks in place.
Not ready to start over at Level 1? A Fortify Potion will reset all your tasks to neutral yellow as well as restoring all your health. It’s a nice palate cleanser if you’re paralyzed at the thought of facing down a horde of dark red tasks.
If you’re looking for even more ways to begin afresh, there’s a great article over on the wiki that you might want to check out: Start-Over Options.
Whew, that was a lot of hard work getting ready for an amazing year–well done!
