Gold is the primary currency in Palia that you need for almost everything. The more money you have in the game, the easier the experience becomes. So, keep reading our guide as we share some of the best ways to make money fast in Palia, including some Gold farming methods.

How to make money fast in Palia

Hunting animals like Chapaa and Sernuk using your Hunting Bow is a great way to get meat and other items you can sell to make money quickly.

That said, the best early game location for farming Sernuk is the field located between the Chapaa Crossing and Fisherman's Lagoon. Before heading there, stock up on arrows and, if possible, upgrade your bow.

Selling the drops you obtain from hunting can earn you around 900 to 1000 Gold every hour on average. Remember, the better you are at hunting, the faster you can make money.

Fishing is another excellent activity that allows you to make Gold fast in Palia. Keep checking your mail and progressing the game till you get the Grilled Fish recipe from Reth. Once that happens, head to the Mirror Pond Ruins and start fishing.

Tips: Casting the fishing line in areas with water ripples will guarantee a higher rarity catch that you can sell for more Gold.

The higher the rarity of the fish, the more Gold you obtain for selling them. Moreover, you can also use the fish to make dishes and then sell them to get more Gold.

Bug Catching is a great way to earn Gold in Palia, but only for enthusiasts who like to catch the different critters around the game map. While you can sell critters to obtain Gold, catching them takes time and effort. 

Tips: To obtain the Bug Catching Belt and Smoke Bombs, talk to the NPC named Auni. You can find him in your base or around the Kilima Village.

Foraging and mining are two activities that can earn you a lot of Gold fast, and that too while progressing through the game. Depending on the item and mineral's rarity, you get different amounts of Gold when you sell them.

Thanks to the multiple mining nodes and forageable plants that respawn after you restart your game, you can farm endlessly. If another player has cleared an area out of resources, you can wait for one Palia day, which is one hour in real-time, for the nodes to respawn or restart the game. 


Many quests in Palia reward you with a ton of Gold. So while you are hunting, fishing, mining, foraging, and involved in other activities, remember to progress the game and tackle the main and side quests.
