Grab your pals and Party Up. 🥳 Party Buffs are here!

Party Buffs bring new ways for you to enjoy Palia with pals.

When you party up with others and partake in activities with a party member nearby, you and your party member will receive a buff that provides a chance at doubled loot and make progress towards special Party-based Accomplishments. These new Accomplishments will provide brand new rewards: Growable Furniture! 🌱

Party Buffs

When partied up with friends and within 35 meters of a party member, you’ll be able to enjoy the loot of your party member’s activities, even if you didn’t participate! This will apply to hunting, insect-catching, foraging, and mining.

When playing near party members, you’ll also have a chance at earning double the loot! This will apply to loot-based activities including hunting, insect catching, foraging, mining, and fishing. This will not apply to cooking, gardening, and furniture making skills.

PatchNotes181 2.jpg

You must be within a range of 35 meters of a party member for the buff to be active. You can check this range by looking out for the Party Buff icon near your name in the upper left corner.

Party People Accomplishments

As you play with and near your fellow party members, you’ll earn XP towards the Party People Accomplishments, visible on the Accomplishments tab. Completing this accomplishment will provide brand new rewards: seeds for Growable Furniture.

Growable Furniture is currently only available as a reward for partying up with friends so be sure to invite pals on your adventures.

There are 5 levels of the Party People Accomplishment and each level will provide one item of Growable Furniture. When you receive a Growable Furniture item seedling, you can plant it on your plot, water it, and watch it grow over time into a blooming piece of decor! Once it is fully grown, you can collect a seed from it to grow more decor over time!

The following Growable Furniture items are available as seeds through Party People Accomplishments:

  • You’ll also be able to see when other players are “Looking for Party” with an icon next to their name plate when exploring the world.🔎
