Furniture Making is one of many skills players can learn to master to craft beautifully designed and hand-crafted furniture pieces and decor items. Under the guidance of Tish, players can utilize this skill to help them fill their homes with unique items using the recipes and resources provided.
But what helps them gain the recipes for these crafting items is achieved through a skill-exclusive mechanism known as Inspiration. If you wish to learn more about Inspiration, keep reading this guide which explains what it is and how to use it in Palia.
How Does Inspiration Work & Its Uses In Palia?
Inspiration is a unique mechanic applicable to players when using the Furniture Making skill in Palia. This mechanic allows you to gain Inspiration for the next crafting item, whether it's another furniture piece or decor item, and it becomes available for you to craft with the right resources.
This mechanic primarily works when crafting furniture or a decor item from a specific set, and once the item is crafted, three thought bubbles will appear above your character's head. Within these thought bubbles are three items from the same set, which are shaded, that have been inspired after crafting a furniture piece or a decor item.
Here, you can choose between one of three items appearing in these bubbles, which allows you to unlock its corresponding recipe automatically. Whichever item was selected in its thought bubble allows you to chart a course that has inspired you as you complete the set by acquiring all recipes from a specific set.
Once you're down to two recipes remaining in a set, you'll be provided these options in the bubbles, and you can choose between them. This leaves one recipe remaining, which will unlock automatically without needing Inspiration, and this will repeat when obtaining recipes for every furniture set available in Palia.
Players can only craft an item from a furniture set once within the Furniture Making UI; you can see all the recipes available to craft with a green checkmark beside them. This means that once an item is crafted for the first time, you'll receive Inspiration, but not when you craft that same item again.
To start crafting furniture and decor items for the next set, you can purchase a recipe from Tish, who can be found at her Furniture store in Killima Village. Then all that's left is to craft it at the Worktable and gain Inspiration for the subsequent furniture pieces in this set.
