Palia received its first major patch update in August 2023 following the release of the game's Closed and Open Beta for PC. As its developer, Singularity 6, plans to release more game updates in the subsequent months ahead of its PC and Nintendo Switch launches, this page will serve as an overview of all the changes, improvements, and new content they add to the game with every subsequent update and patch. If you want something more forward-facing, we suggest reading the roadmap for Palia instead for a look at what's coming in the future.

Previously the developers have stated that these updates to the game are planned to be released every two weeks,  with specific details of every tweak and adjustment released via blog posts on the official Palia website. For now, read on for the latest look at Palia's most recent update, including all the new content, adjustments, and bug fixes addressed by the team.

  • You can now properly collect the Flowstone located by the exit in the “Plumehound Privilege” Quest!

  • Players should no longer receive an error message indicating their clothing needs to be mended at login.

Palia v0.168 Patch Notes: Adjustments & Bug Fixes


What's New 

The Temple of the Flames area, two related quests, and four new Bundles have been added.

  • Get started by receiving a letter in the mail from Hassian!

    • Note: It requires completion of the “Vault of Waves” questline first. (But it’s okay if you haven’t finished the bundles!) 🌊

  • Completing each Temple Bundle will reward you - and some items are new and exclusive! The final reward for completing all four includes a very special item…the Ancient Rock Garden.

The Ancient Rock Garden will be granted as a reward for completing all Temple of the Flames Bundles.

  • Placing the Ancient Rock Garden on your housing plot will have a special guest appear...the fabled Kitsuu.

  • Offer an item on the stone pedestal for a chance to receive a reward from the Kitsuu.

    • This interaction can be done once daily and resets at 9 PM PT(4 AM UTC).

The Kitsuu are rare beings—not pets—whose presence must be respected. They are not used to human interaction and may run away when approached. (This PSA has been brought to you by Hassian.)


You can now have a Friendship with Tau! 

We know this was a very deserved update for the bestest boi. And if you need any more motivation, know that you get a big ol’ Tau plushie as a reward for completing his Level 4 Friendship.

Get ready to craft the Emberborn Set!

In celebration of the Temple of the Flame being added, and inspired by Embra directly, this set features hues of orange and yellow, gold accents, and a design not unlike some of the ancient human ruins seen throughout Palia. Also flames, lots of flames. Did we mention fire?

Eight decor pieces have been added:

  • Emberborn Brazier, Emberborn Nightstand, Emberborn Bed, Emberborn Hanging Lamp, Emberborn Standing Lamp, Emberborn Stool, Emberborn Dining Table, and Emberborn Table Lamp

You can now grow Corn and Spicy Peppers.

  • Corn Seeds can immediately be purchased for 30 Gold at Zeki’s General Store.

  • Spicy Pepper Seeds require Level 6 Gardening, and costs 170 Gold at Zeki’s General Store.

  • You can also purchase Corn (the crop) directly from Badruu.

Ten new dishes are ready to be cooked! 

  • The following have been added: Spicy Rice Cakes, Hot Hounds, Crab Gumbo, Crab Pot Pie, Stuffed Phoenixfire Pepper, Chili Oil Dumplings, Spicy Stir Fry, Fish Tacos, Chapaa Asada Tacos, and Shepp's Pie.

  • You can obtain the recipes by purchasing from the Cooking Guild Store (Reth), finding them out in the world, or perhaps through other means. Try to learn them all!

More items have been added to Zeki’s Wondrous Machine.

  • This includes four more Valley Sunrise decor pieces: Valley Sunrise Sink, Valley Sunrise Hanging Lamp, Valley Sunrise Dining Table, and Valley Sunrise Cloche.

  • We’ve also added another plush! Joining the [REDACTED] is the [REDACTED] .

15 new books can now be found and read throughout the world of Palia.

  • Lore fans, this one’s for you!

It’s finally here: You can now multi-craft recipes from the Workbench! 

  • You can increase or decrease the amount of times the recipe is crafted using the buttons, or type the value in the field directly.

  • The limit is up to 99 times per crafting action.

  • This should apply to every recipe, so whether it’s Standard Arrows, or Log Cabin Garden Sernuks, have at it*!

    • So long as you have enough required ingredients.

Item Requests can now be fulfilled using items in your storage.

  • See a request you know you can fulfill, but it’s back at home in your storage? This change makes it so it’s easier than ever to help others, even while out adventuring!

Some quests have been adjusted:

  • The furniture required to complete “The Path Ahead” (Kenyatta Friendship Lvl. 4) has been changed to easier options.

  • Stuck on what the riddle for “Open the Door” (Jina Friendship Lvl. 3) means? Feel free to ask Einar for a hint!

  • A Scheme Involving Pyramids” (Elouisa Friendship Lvl. 4) has additional guidance now, so should it be easier to get started.

    • Have you been blocked from getting this quest despite having Level 4 Friendship with Elouisa? See the Bug Fixes section below!

  • Certain Found Item/Discovery quests relating to fishing should now be easier to unlock.


The focus values granted by various Preserve Jar Products have been reduced.

  • In taking a look at these values, we realized the numbers were set higher than intended. We have tuned them to better be proportionate to their sell values, which will make them more in line with other items that grant focus.
    • Pickled Carrot: 135 → 70 Focus
    • Pickled Onion: 180 → 90 Focus
    • Pickled Potato: 270 → 135 Focus
    • Pickled Tomato: 135 → 70 Focus
    • Blueberry Jam: 250 → 120 Focus
    • Apple Jam: 385 → 190 Focus

Interactable Light settings in your housing plot will persist and be viewed the same by all visitors.

  • If you want to have an entire room filled with lamps burning bright — and want everyone to know — you do you! 
  • Note: We are aware of a bug where the current light setting will be reversed, so what's “ON” will actually show as “OFF,” and vice versa.

Premium Store Updates

  • As mentioned in our Monetization Update blog, we have made some updates to the store based on feedback from the community.
  • The display price of bundles & outfits have been adjusted to better reflect their current cost.
  • Descriptions in the store have been improved to better explain how the bundle discount works.


Three New Outfit Bundles have been added to the Premium Store.

  • The Cadet Bundle (850/Outfit, 1700/Bundle) includes Lieutenant, General, and Admiral outfits.
  • Each outfit comes with a top and bottom.
  • The Disciple Bundle (1275/Outfit, 2549/Bundle) includes Novitiate, Ceremonial, and Renewal outfits.
  • Each outfit comes with a top and bottom.
  • The Ballroom Belle Bundle (1275/Outfit, 2549/Bundle) includes Resplendent, Efflorescent, and Majinificent outfits.
  • Each outfit comes with a one-piece and a hat.
