Palia Crafting and Unlocks Guide

To get started crafting in Palia, you'll first need to complete the mission "Welcome to Palia" which gives you access to the Worktable. This initial crafter is your route to building all of the other crafters and recipes that you'll find throughout Palia.

How Crafting Works

To get crafting in Palia, you need both a crafter and a recipe to use with that crafter. Once you have the Worktable (see above), you'll be able to craft various items, including other crafters, as long as you have the recipe and the resources to do it. 

How to get more Recipes

Train up your skills to level 2 to unlock the related store to that skill. Each skill has an associated vendor who will sell you new recipes for crafters and tool upgrades as well as items to use with them.
