What’s included in the Palia 0.170 patch?

First things first, let's get the most important update out of the way. Hodari is finally romanceable in the game, much to the delight of many fans lovestruck by the shy blacksmith.

There are a few conditions to starting his romance questline however, these are:

  • Complete the final quest for the Temple of the Waves (Echoes of the Unknown)
  • Achieve friendship level 4 with Najuma

To win this single father’s heart, you’ll need to be on good terms with Najuma first.

Along with this update, developer Singularly 6 has noted that there are future plans to make Sifuu a romantic character, but this will require more time to implement due to story reasons.

Kilima Village will now feature Halloween-inspired décor like pumpkins and autumnal leaves.

Halloween decorations will also be available to buy from a new cash register in town called the Spooky Moon Store (located beside the fountain behind Jel’s shop). There, the following items are available:

  • Spooky Pumpkin
  • Spooky Jaak-O-Lantern
  • Spooky Sernuk-O-Lantern
  • Spooky Heirloom Pumpkin
  • Spooky Vined Pumpkin

Personally, I'd recommend getting yourself an adorable Sernuk-O-Lantern, which are only available for the season.

For players looking for a challenge, you can compete in the new Obstacle Course activity.

The course is made up of everyday objects found throughout Palia, some of which contain Zeki’s Lucky Coins as an incentive to participate.

If you’d like to try your hand at the course, you can access it via The Tower machine, next to the inactive claw machine in Zeki’s Underground Market.

Besides the above changes, the Palia 0.170 patch has included the following:

  • More Valley Sunrise pieces have been added to Zeki’s Wondrous Machine. These are; the Valley Sunrise Bookshelf, Valley Sunrise Oval Table, Valley Sunrise Lights, Valley Sunrise Knife Set
  • Proximity chat has been added to the game. Named ‘Nearby Chat’ this feature can be toggled on and off and should make it easier for players to collaborate.
  • Added Flare Arrows to the game. These can be used to get other player‘s attention and highlight points of interest such as Flow Trees. The recipe can be gathered from Hassian’s store at hunting level 4.
  • New sorting options for the workbench menu
