What Is Hunting And How To Learn in Palia?
Hunting is one of the eight unlockable skills players can learn while guided by a Skill Master, Hassian, and his canine companion, Tau. This skill perfectly complements the cooking and furniture-making skills as players who advance this skill can loot meats and other animal by-products using their trusted bow and arrows.
As you can use the meats for cooking delicious meals, the animal by-products like hides or pelts can be used to craft furniture pieces and decoration items to adorn your home. As for learning this skill, you can find Hassian somewhere in the wilderness of Kilima Village, who will aid you through the Introduction Quest for Hunting.
This skill will be the closest players will experience some form of PvE combat when embarking on hunting expeditions and tracking down the wildlife that occupy the wilderness. Once you’ve completed the Introduction Quest, you’re free to use this skill by completing various hunting tasks and challenges and hunting the wild animals and beasts that roam the open world, which will help level up this skill.
While you do have the option to learn all skills available in Palia, you can also master a few that resonates with your playstyle. Do remember that each time you utilize your hunting skill, you can earn some points, which can help you progress with this skill and eventually level it up.

You will need to locate Hassian, your Skill Master, who he’ll have various rewards to award you with, which may include new hunting items, recipes, equipment, and potentially more animals and creatures to hunt.
This zero-waste approach to hunting allows players to utilize every part of the animal and use what they need for crafting purposes and cooking, which also helps you level up those skills. From using the antlers for home decoration, the hides or pelts for crafting equipment and tools, and the meats for cooking dishes like pot roast, ramen, or steak and grilled vegetables.
