The sun is setting, and strings of lanterns flicker on with a warm glow. You can hear distant laughter, the crackle of fireworks, and the sizzle of food made with love. In Palia, that can only mean one thing – the Maji Market is in town!
When you’re not spending hours at the Maji Market, or relaxing with the new Sit emote, we invite you to visit our studio’s first Reddit AMA, starting today, August 29th, from 6:00pm - 8:00pm PT. We’ll have developers from all across the studio answering questions provided by our community! Stop by the official Subreddit to check it out.
Thank you for visiting the Maji Market and making the start of our first game event a success during open beta. We really appreciate your feedback and would like to share how we’re addressing it.
Based on these changes, we’re now able to catch around 300 Chapaas per night during each round.
When in a party, we lowered the Chapaa Chasers Party and Chapaa Champions Party requirements so that more people can obtain the accomplishments.
Added a new Maji the Dragon (water themed) plushie to the Chapaa Chase ticket store.
(Update, 11:09am PT): Placing items on the Porch housing add-on no longer causes them to be moved somewhere else on the plot.
Some players noticed that when plushies were added to their housing plot; the color was different from the icon. We have fixed the colors so that they match.
We also received some feedback that it would be nice to add the correct names to the corresponding color version in the store to align with the Chapaas from the scavenger hunt.
During the Maji Market Mayhem quest, the Mochi Ice Cream that Reth gives to players to taste test gives the player renown instead of focus. This has now been updated to 300 focus.
Our initial recipe for the Phoenix Firework was mistakenly crafting more than intended. We’ve adjusted the Phoenix Firework recipe to the following:
We are listening to your feedback on the pricing of food, fireworks and decor in the night market stores and Chapaa Chase ticket booth, as well as your requests for buying items with tickets instead of gold. While we won’t be able to make changes to this season’s game event, we are committed to finding a more suitable range of pricing and currency so that more people can enjoy.
Come one, come all, to the Maji Market! Starting today through September 26th, you can visit the Maji Market from 6:00pm - 3:00am Palia time. Every evening at the Kiima Village Fairgrounds, the Maji Market twinkles with the promise of food, fun, and friendship. Watch the fireworks, try the treats, and earn tickets at mini-games like the Chapaa Chase (only once per night after the fireworks show!). And all along the way you’ll be filling out your stamp card to trade in for over 50 rewards and prizes, including dozens of new decor items.
Be sure to chat with all the NPC booth vendors – They’ll be sure to send you chasing more than just chapaas!
You can read up on all the details of how the Maji Market works here – but the best way to get started is to jump in and see for yourself!
After a long night of chasing chapaas at the Maji Market, you deserve a good “sit.” Access the new “Sit” emote by typing “/sit” in chat, or selecting it from the ‘T’ menu. If it’s not in your Emote selection, you can switch it out by going to the ‘P’ menu and accessing the Collections tab.
This is not the final form of how sitting will work in Palia, but as our Narrative Lead, S6 Vega says, “It’s a sit in the right direction!”
We’ve added 6 more Found Item Quests. See if you can find them all by exploring,fishing, mining, and foraging. Note: As you uncover the Found Item quests, they will appear in the Discovery Quests section of the quest list.
Doorways & Porch: Spruce up the homestead with some new doorway styles and a comfy little porch, found at the register in City Hall.
A new plushie: A certain fish plushie has now been added as a possible reward from Zeki’s Wondrous Machine. Can you guess which one it is?
In Bahari Bay, several adjustments have been made to the higher-tier Sernuks and Chapaas to make hunting here more rewarding for higher level hunters.
Insects now collect in stacks of 30 instead of 5 in your inventory slots.
(Note: Starred insects and non-starred insects are stacked separately.)
The Ravenwood Standing Lamp’s recipe has been updated to require less Iron Bars (35 → 25).
We have adjusted the Tomato Seed Recipe in the Seed Maker.
Players let us know that Jina’s Level 3 friendship questline hid too many secrets. So, we’ve added a hint about where scholars “with a thirst for something more” might go. Try chatting with one of our helpful Galdurs!
We have done lots of optimizations to improve performance for our housing plot servers. Overall, the experience should feel smoother, but this is continuous work we will keep tackling!
We adjusted Palia Coin bundles to more evenly match the prices of our cosmetic store. More information on our monetization changes can be read in a separate blog here.
Traveling Trader (1700/Outfit, 3400/For all 3), includes:
Techwear Master Bundle (1275/Outfit, 2549/For all 3), includes:
Disclaimer: The Community Team does its very best to collect all possible Known Issues into our wicker baskets; however, we may not always be able to capture every quirk you encounter.
Holy smokes! Our devs fixed over 100 known issues this patch cycle - that’s a LOT of bugs! 🐞 Here are some worth celebrating listed below.
Our localization work is ongoing - you may notice some mismatch of dialogue, some areas of the game that are only available in English, or small errors in certain languages. We are actively improving this with every update and will continue to do so! Please note: Our Launcher uses the language settings of your computer, if supported. We will be adding ways to select a dedicated language for the Launcher in the future!
We are working with a new chat service to better support our growing player population! As we are still working to get this service up and running in Palia overall there may be some ongoing funky, fresh chat issues. We appreciate your patience and understanding! This might look like your Server or Community chats going quiet. If this happens, try sending a message in any Chat - This should help everything reload correctly!
We continue our work to unblock quests due to early Beta progress reset issues.
Disclaimer: These are only a select few issues of many we’re aware of! For troubleshooting on common issues, please visit: https://palia.info/psknown
