Unlucky Palworld Player Misses Out on Ridiculous Amount of Coins


  • A Palworld player has accidentally lost out on millions of in-game Coins due to a recent update to the game.
  • Patch implemented multiple fixes and balance adjustments to the game, including significantly reducing the selling price of nails at the game’s Merchants.
  • The player had amassed more than 19 million nails with the intention of selling them to the game’s Merchants.

A Palworld player accidentally missed out on a huge amount of Coins within the game due to a change in the selling price of nails. The massively popular new monster-catching game from developer Pocket Pair offers players a variety of things to do within its sandbox open-world environment. Players can capture Pals to battle or use in their base, build sprawling bases to generate more resources and craft items, and challenge the many bosses found throughout the game’s world. Now, one player’s unfortunate hiatus ended up losing them a significant number of Coins.

Coins are the main currency used within Palworld for the NPC merchants found across the game’s various settlements. Players can acquire Coins by defeating human enemies like the “Syndicate Thugs” and “Free Pal Alliance Devouts,” as well as through selling resources or even their Pals. Palworld features both regular merchants, allowing players to buy valuable in-game resources, and Pal merchants, often selling rare and sought-after Pals. Now, however, one player’s Coin income has been drastically reduced, thanks to a recent patch.

Palworld Player Loses Millions of Coins Thanks to Patch Change

While the user lamented the significant loss of money, many fans pointed out the still massive amount of Palworld Coins the player stands to make from their nails. One player pointed out that the staggering number of nails would now sell for 6,799,320 Coins, though it does show a marked difference from their previous valuation at more than 54 million Coins. Others joked that the player basically has infinite nails to use for repairing items like the crossbow. Many also compared the hoarding of nails to playing the stock market within the game, suggesting the player could hold onto the nails for a potential later price increase.

Palworld‘s Patch comes as one of the newest in a plethora of updates made to the smash-hit game since its release. Palworld has already debuted three major patches pushing a variety of fixes to the monster-catching game following its launch in mid-January. The game even launched another small update after Patch, implementing multiple minor changes with Patch on Wednesday. Pocket Pair’s commitment to improving Palworld following its launch should be a good sign about the game’s future for its many fans.
