Need to mine rocks? Luckily you have a pickaxe! Palia is rich with resources like stone, clay, iron, and even silver and gold! You'll need a stronger pickaxe to get those precious metals.

Almanac Fishing Rod.png Fishing Rod

Need some fish for cooking? Palia's rivers, lakes, and ocean are full of beautiful fish. Many are tasty, and all of them have charm. Upgrading your fishing rod will help you catch rare fish.

Almanac Hoe.png Hoe

Now you don't have to dig with your hands! This tool is used to till your fields so you can plant your gorgeous crops. Upgrading this can help you cover more ground.

Almanac Watering Can.png Watering Can

You'll need to water your plants every day, and this watering can is how you do it! Once you get it upgraded, you can cover more area in a single pour.

Almanac Smoke Bombs.png Smoke Bomb

There are all sorts of critters to find in Palia, and you'll need traps to catch them! There are a few different kinds of smoke bombs, so try them all to see which works best for your mark.


Almanac Skills Gardening.png Gardening

Gardening is all about growing your own crops at your home, which you can then use for home-cooked meals, pickles and jams, or selling directly! Badruu would be happy to provide soil and starter items, and once you've gotten comfortable with the basics, you can check out Zeki's store for even more seeds.

Almanac Skills Mining.png Mining

Scattered throughout the land of Palia are mining nodes where you may gather different materials that you can use to craft various items. From clay, stone, copper and iron, you can find these nodes on hillsides and rocky formations. Hodari is your point of contact for the Mining Guild, and you can usually find him in Bahari Bay.

Almanac Skills Foraging.png Foraging

Foraging involves 2 activities: harvesting natural resources that you might find while exploring, and chopping down trees to collect lumber and wood. Remember, the bigger the tree, the stronger your axe will need to be to chop it down! Ashura leads the Foraging Guild from the Ormuu's Horn Inn.

Almanac Skills Fishing.png Fishing

Palia is filled with rivers, lakes, and beaches stocked to the brim with fish! Fish can be caught with or without bait, and can be sold for cash, used in meals, or offered as gifts. If you're looking for rare fish, you may need a better rod to find them. Einar at the Fishing Dock can help upgrade your rod, or provide bait and sage advice.

Almanac Skills Hunting.png Hunting

It may take you a little bit to get the hang of hunting. But once you begin upgrading your bow and arrow, you'll find it easier to take down the critters flitting around. Chapaa and Sernuk will grand you fur, hides, and meat to help you in crafting and cooking. Any questions? Chase down Hassian to help you with your hunting needs.

Almanac Skills Insect Catching.png Insect Catching

This skill requires you to have good aim, patience, and a certain degree of stealth. Insects are crafty critters that are easily alerted to your presence. You will need to locate, approach, and catch insects with ball-shaped traps. Auni will assess your skills and grant you upgraded skill badges to help you catch those extra-rare crawlies!

Almanac Skills Furniture Making.png Furniture Making

To get started making your house a home, you should talk shop with Tish, who will provide some basic recipes. You can use the materials you've found through foraging, mining and hunting to build beautiful centerpieces for your home. If you try something new, you might be inspired enough to discover new recipes on your own!

Almanac Skills Cooking.png Cooking

One of the most useful skills you can pick up in Palia is cooking. All food items in Palia help you "focus", which will help you level up skills faster. Additionally, cooked dishes provide great gifts, especially when made from home-grown ingredients! Our resident culinary expert Reth would be happy to break bread with you anytime.

Creatures of Palia

Almanac Chapaa.png Chapaa

These little critters are found all over Palia, and are a bit of an invasive pest! They have been known to steal important items, and get into all sort of mischief. Hunting them will grant you fur and yummy meat.

Almanac Sernuk.png Sernuk

A graceful Palian creature is the Sernuk. They provide useful hides and horns in addition to their meat. Sernuk horns are also used in many traditional decorations in Kilima. The larger the horn, the older the Sernuk!

If you prefer not to hunt, you can get what you need from Villagers!

Almanac Insects.png Insects

Insects can be found all over Palia and will appear at different times of day with a variety of behaviors. Astute catchers will need to learn when and where their marks lurk in order to best chase and trap them.

Almanac Trees.png Trees

Palia is full of many different types of beautiful trees. Chopping these down can grant different wood depending on the type of tree. They can also yield seeds to plant new trees.

Note: there have been sightings of trees with strange properties. Unsure of what this could mean. – Jina Profile.png Jina

Mushrooms.png Mushrooms

Just like trees, there's an abundance of mushrooms all over Palia. Try roasting them over the fire, or adding them to a soup for flavor! Brightshrooms offer unique properties.

Beginner Tips

Beginner Tips
Almanac Focus.png Focus

It's important to make sure you're getting the most out of your skills, and it's always easier to focus on a full stomach. Eating meals or raw food will increase your Focus, which will give you a bonus to all experience gained. If you're struggling to find recipes to cook, check in with Reth at the Ormuu's Horn Inn for some tips.

Almanac Upgrades.png Upgrades

You'll find when you begin your journey in Palia that there will be resources you can't chop or break. You might run into resources that need higher tier tools to harvest, or see some rare creatures that are too difficult to catch with your default tools. Consider upgrading them to improve your adventuring experience!

Worktable.png Design Inspiration

You can put all that wood, stone and other materials you've been collecting to good use by crafting up some furniture for your home! Each time you craft a new piece, you have the chance to be struck with inspiration for a new recipe. Keep building to fill your home with the coziest handmade furniture possible!

Almanac Refining Materials.png Refining Materials

Once you've gotten a handle on collecting materials, each Guild Leader will provide you upgrades to refine them into special items. Stone can be turned into Stone Bricks, lumber into Wood Planks, and more! Make sure you're checking in with the Guilds often so that you don't miss out on expanding your crafters.

Many villagers in Kilima (and beyond) are open and available for something deeper than friendship. In Kilima, it is custom to give a pin to your lover to symbolize your love and devotion to each other.

Who knows? Maybe if you get to know someone long enough, you may find yourself falling for them. Or, you may fall for multiple people - in Palia it's common and accepted to have multiple love interests or lovers. Though keep in mind: you can only wear one pin at a time!
