Let your creativity run wild with the new Building Blocks system!

PatchNotes180 2.png

This is for all the Palians who need that extra flexibility that existing building add-ons don’t quite have. You can now use a variety of shapes to build structures, sort of like blocks. Hence the name!

"We love being surprised by the delightful new ways our community has managed to turn the decoration they collect into new and interesting configurations, so we wanted to give players even more options! Keep your eyes on future patches as we look to add more styles for even more options."

- S6 Aidan

Improvements & Adjustments

Muujin will now carry over their health even after escaping.

Previously, their health would be reset to full.

Party members will now share loot for most gathering activities.

Players who are near their party members will now receive loot for actions their party members did - so if your friend can one-shot a Sernuk, you’ll share in on the loot. In addition, the loot dropped will be the same across each player. Yes, that includes Plushies! Skills this change applies to:

  • Woodcutting
  • Mining
  • Insect Catching
  • Hunting

[PC] Additional graphics settings have been added.

  • Note: A static image preview will overlay to help you test out certain options.
  • We are also working to add more to the Switch as well in a future update.

Nintendo Switch.svg Other player character models that are not fully rendered will now have a “ghost” silhouette as a better indication of their presence

Economy Updates

In case you missed it, we outlined several details and the reasoning behind these changes in our latest Dev Note that you can read here. These changes are aimed at improving the onboarding experience for new players at the earlier stages of the game and to make the value of engaging in each of the gathering skills more equitable.

The limits to Gold and Renown have been increased.

  • Gold Limit: Gold.png 300,000 GoldGold.png 999,999 Gold
  • Renown Limit: Renown.png 1,000Renown.png 9,999 Renown

A few quests have had their Gold and Renown rewards increased.

Drop chances for decor and plushies from Zeki’s Machine have been increased.

The Gold earned from gathering skills (Foraging, Insect Catching, Hunting, and Fishing) have been rebalanced for more even distribution.

The sell value for most Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary items have been adjusted—with a majority being increased.

That said, for Mining, the sell values for Starstones have been reduced so the skill is more in-line with other gathering skills in terms of overall earning potential.

Examples (by Base Sell Value) include:

  • Jewelwing Dragonfly: Gold.png 350 GoldGold.png 440 Gold
  • Shimmerfin: Gold.png 130 GoldGold.png 315 Gold
  • Azure Chappa Tail: Gold.png 350 GoldGold.png 705 Gold

Over half of all furniture decor and crafter recipes have been adjusted to cost less in terms of requirements.

Overall, we targeted recipes that felt overly costly and brought them closer to average values. As mentioned in the Dev Update, about 50% of Worktable recipes have changed, with over 85% of those having their recipe costs reduced.

Examples include:

The time it takes to craft Silver and Gold Bars have been reduced.

  • Silver Bar Silver Bar Crafting Time: 1 hour, 56 minutes → 9 minutes
  • Gold Bar Gold Bar Crafting Time: 3 hours, 53 minutes → 18 minutes
  • (⚠️The times above are for the Basic Smelter.)

The amount of Gold in both Kilima Village and Bahari Bay treasure chests have been increased across the board.

⚠️Note: This is not retroactive for those who have collected all the chests, but the intention is to benefit new and early-game players to help them get started.

We’ve removed more common drops such as Stone and Sapwood from Rummage Piles.

Goodbye, single Stone Stone!

Amber will now drop at a chance when you chop trees.

As part of our Economy Update, trees will now have a rare chance to drop amber to help incentivize this Skill as a means to earn some gold.

The following items are now available:

Some additional details:

  • Each amber will drop from their respective tree (so Birch Amber from Birch trees, etc.), and all sell for Gold.png 350 Gold.
  • It’s possible for Amber to drop from planted Trees in the housing plot as well!

All Flow-Infused Wood Flow-Infused Wood drops have been increased.

Generally speaking, the amount of Flow-Infused Wood obtained will scale better based on the size of the tree.

The cost to purchase the Copper Storage upgrade has been decreased.

Upgrade Cost: Gold.png 25,000 GoldGold.png 10,000 Gold

You will now receive free buildings for reaching specific levels in the Furniture-Making Skill early on.

⚠️Note: This is retroactive, and returning players will receive the rewards via the Mail.

Several Buildings have had their cost and build times significantly reduced.

The price to purchase each Gardening Plot has been reduced.

Apples and Blueberries have been adjusted to buff HarvestBoost instead of SpeedyGro.

Some changes to Worm Farms and Fertilizers have been made.

  • SpeedyGro Fertilizer will no longer be obtained by Glow Worm Farm Glow Worm Farm, but will still be available for Gardening Medals at the Gardening Guild Store.
  • The output for Worm Farm Worm Farm has been streamlined.
  • By default, most items will result in HarvestBoost Fertilizer.
  • However, inputting items classified as "sweet" or "dessert" will result in QualityUp Fertilizer.
  • The output for Glow Worm Farm Glow Worm Farm has been streamlined.
  • By default, most items will result in HarvestBoost Fertilizer (no change).
