Biomes

From Palia Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Biomes are zones in Palia with distinct Fish, Bug, and Gatherable spawns.

Biomes can generally be divided into aquatic (finding fish, waterlogged chests or junk) and terrestrial zones (finding bugs and most gatherables). In the following, a distinction is made between Bahari and Kilima. However, it is noteable that when it comes to finding bugs, even though bugs can be found in a specific biome, especially epic bugs tend to spawn only on smaller locations within a biome. A detailed overview can be found on this fan created interactive map.
