Palia update version 0.179 patch notes

At a Glance

  • Get to know Ashura, Zeki, Tish and Reth better with their Friendship Level 5 Quests!
  • Add some fancy flourish to your housing plot with the new Courtyard building.
  • Even more flowers are available to add to your home, Bahari Bay Edition.
  • Feel that? It’s all the freed up inventory space you’ll get now that the Ammo Pouch is here.
  • Check out new premium cosmetics, including the featured Shadowstalker outfit.

New Features & Updates

The login screen and Kilima Village have an updated look, just in time for Spring!

Friendship Level 5 Quests are now available for the following villagers: Ashura, Zeki, Tish, and Reth.

“We know a lot of people are eager to learn more about the lovable cast of Palia. Their stories will continue, and we plan to slowly add more over time.”

  • Naturally, you will need to reach Friendship Level 4 before you can proceed.
  • Completing each quest will also grant an exclusive decor reward at the end of the questline.

A new building is now available: the Courtyard.

  • You can purchase it at the City Hall store.
  • Note: This is an add-on, meaning it must be attached to other rooms and is not a standalone structure.
  • The Courtyard has four different configurations to create a variety of setups.

Bahari Bay Flowers have been added.

Insects in Bahari Bay now have a chance to drop Flower Seeds.

The following items have been added:

  • Trillium Flower
  • Hemitomes Flower
  • Cave Cap Flower
  • Baharricenia
  • Bluebell Flower
  • Veronica Flower
  • Forget-Me-Not Flower
  • Bahari Nettle Flower
  • Fiddlefrond Flower
  • Datura Flower

Meet Cyl the Green Plush!

“We were so inspired by the community reaction to a very visible bug that appeared in 177, this was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up. There’s no limit to how many you can get, so why not build a whole army of Cyl?!” – S6 Eris

  • Cyl the Green Plush has a chance to appear in any Bahari Bay Rummage Pile.
    • You know, as an homage to their origins.

The new Ammo Pouch is now available.

It’s finally here! Arrows, Smoke Bombs, and Fishing Bait will now appear in this tab. You can access it from your Inventory.

  • When you first log in, any ammo in your inventory will move into the ammo pouch.
  • Any ammo that cannot fit into the ammo pouch will automatically transfer to your storage.

The Ammo Pouch starts with one row unlocked, and you can expand more at the General Store — just like the Backpack.

A Tailor Shop Changing Room has appeared in Bahari Bay!

Even adventuring shouldn’t stop you from looking fab. Just the little suitcase wouldn’t do for Jel, so he’s ordered a proper building in its place. (This service acts just like a wardrobe, and can be found by the Central Stables.)

Improvements & Adjustments

The amount of Friendship Points granted from various quests relating to Ashura, Zeki, Tish, and Reth have been balanced with the addition of Friendship Level 5 Quests.

We will be sending compensation to those who have completed Friendship Level 4 Quest as a result of this adjustment.


  • Completed one or more of the following quests:
    • “A Family Matter” (Ashura)
    • “Bugs Everywhere!” (Zeki)
    • “Make ‘Em Sing” (Tish)
    • “The Heist” (Reth)


  • Citrine x2
  • Onyx
  • Quartz

The Map will now show a coordinate grid.

This has been a long-requested feature, and should help out with group play alongside Flare Arrows. “Disco deer at B4!”

Temples will now have a dedicated map.

In an effort to help players navigate these special areas, you’ll be able to see a custom map in each space.

  • We specifically wanted to call out the Air Temple, which will also have icons for quest-related items.
  • Note: While our Palian cartographer was able to create maps for the Temples of the Flames, Gales, and Roots, the one of the Temple of the Waves will be arriving with the next patch.

There is now an Unstuck button you can quickly access in menus.

Previously, the only option was to type it out in chat, which we knew was a challenge especially for Switch and controller users. This option should make it more accessible.

Planted Trees in the Housing Plot have been visually updated to no longer have the “dirt mound” around the base.

Air Gusts in the Temple of the Gales have been improved to better carry the player.

Premium Store Updates

In case you missed it: you can now preview and purchase outfits straight from the Wardrobe.

We hope this addition makes it easier for folks to plan out outfits and pick out their best fit!

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

Maps & World

  • Fixed some inconsistencies with fishable water in the Bahari Bay Statue Garden river area.
  • Changing the Field of View no longer incorrectly zooms the player camera in too close.
  • Star Quality Ancient Cloudminnow and Ancient Flow Bug are now placed in main inventory so they can be placed as decoration on the Housing Plot.

  • Planted Trees may appear on different housing plots after they have grown.
