Starting Out (Level 1 – 10)

Palworld Beginner’s Guide: Getting Started and Base Building

Welcome to Palworld, where the journey to become the ultimate Pal Rancher begins! Here’s a comprehensive guide to help you navigate your first steps, establish a strong base, and make the most out of your Pal collection.

Choosing Your Starting Location

When embarking on your Palworld adventure, you’ll likely have the option to select a starting location, especially on multiplayer servers. For an optimal beginning, we recommend choosing the Plateau of Beginnings as your initial base site.

Proximity Matters

As you start your journey, it’s crucial to set up your base near your starting point. Palworld introduces raids, and these raids become more challenging the farther you venture out. Establishing your base close to the starting area provides a strategic advantage in fending off raids effectively.

Follow the Tutorial for a Solid Start

Navigate through the in-game tutorial, as it guides you through essential mechanics and tasks. Following the tutorial will quickly bring you close to level 8, setting a strong foundation for your Palworld experience.

Skipping Optional Items

Certain items may be skipped initially, either because superior technology becomes available at higher levels or because they are of lesser importance. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Old Bow
  • Repair Kit
  • Common Shield
  • Hanging Trap
  • Fire Bow
  • Fire Arrow
  • Wooden Living Room Furniture Set
  • Mounted Torch
  • Wooden Tavern Furniture Set
  • Sign
  • Bat
  • Poison Bow
  • Poison Arrow
  • Wooden Tavern Cabinet Furniture Set
  • Tropical Outfit
  • Tundra Outfit
  • Sandbag
  • Bear Trap (Small)

Building a Functional Base

Once you’ve reached a point where you can establish your base, ensure it includes basic Pals covering various capabilities:

  • Water (e.g., Pengullet, Fuack)
  • Planting (e.g., Tanzee, Gumoss)
  • Gathering (e.g., Cattiva, Tanzee, Daedream, Chikipi)
  • Handiwork (e.g., Lamball, Cattiva, Pengullet, Fuack, Tanzee)
  • Transporting (e.g., Lamball, Cattiva, Pengullet, Fuack, Tanzee)

Create a Berry Plantation and install a Feedbox to automate the feeding process for your Pals using the aforementioned capabilities.

Pal Spheres and Diverse Pal Collection

Utilize your time wisely by crafting Pal Spheres and capturing a variety of Pals. Focus on catching Daedream during the night and Cattiva during the day. Diversifying your Pal collection early on is essential for a well-rounded team.

Leveling Up to 10

With a solid foundation in place, you should swiftly reach level 10. Allocate your stat points to weight and stamina to enhance your efficiency and endurance during various activities.

Embark on your Palworld journey with these tips, and soon you’ll be on your way to becoming a formidable Pal Rancher!

Progressing (Level 11 – 20)

Palworld Advanced Guide: Gearing Up and Party Optimization

Welcome to the advanced stages of Palworld, where leveling slows down, and strategic decisions become crucial. Gear up, assemble the right Pals, and get ready for more challenging adventures with this comprehensive guide.

Adapting to Slower Leveling

As you progress, you’ll notice that leveling becomes a more deliberate process. It’s time to shift your focus towards gearing up and selecting the optimal Pals for both your base and party.

Daedreams Dominate the Party

Maximize your combat efficiency by filling your entire party with Daedreams. Crafting the Daedream Collar at level 8 enables these Pals to fight alongside you without taking damage. This significantly speeds up your combat experience and facilitates easier boss battles.

Cattivas: Versatile Base Pals

For base construction, Cattivas are recommended for beginners due to their versatile capabilities. Their adaptability makes them valuable assets as you build and expand your base.

Selective Item Skipping

Certain items can be skipped for now, either because superior technology awaits at higher levels or because they are of lesser importance. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Wooden Gate
  • Lifmunk’s Submachine Gun
  • Houseplant Set
  • Meat Cleaver (questionable usefulness)
  • Training Dummy
  • Antique Storage Set
  • Fire Arrow Crossbow
  • Fireplace Set
  • Carpet Set
  • Antique Chair Set
  • Wooden Defensive Wall Set

Comprehensive Base Capabilities

Ensure your base is equipped with Pals covering all 11 capabilities (excluding Generating Electricity).
Consider incorporating Vixy, as they can generate Pal Spheres when assigned to a Ranch, enhancing your resource production.

Chillet and Mega Spheres: A Winning Combination

After acquiring a few Mega Spheres, challenge and catch the elusive Chillet. Be cautious not to accidentally defeat it, as it respawns after an hour. The Chillet, combined with Daedreams in your party, prepares you for facing the Tower of the Rayne Syndicate.

Conquering the Tower

Engage in Tower battles once you have a Chillet and Daedreams in your party. The Chillet’s freezing ability provides a tactical advantage. Dodge enemy attacks, retrieve and redeploy your Chillet strategically, and utilize ranged weapons for efficient boss fights. Use the available pillars for cover during intense encounters.

Continued Exploration and Pal Collection

As you progress, spend time exploring the world and capturing more Pals. This guide will resume with further insights in future updates.

Gear up, strategize, and conquer Palworld’s challenges with confidence!

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

  • Q: Should I join a guild? What are the pros and cons?
  • A: When you join a guild in Palworld, your base level will be changed to be equal to the Guild Leader’s base level. If your level is higher, this could mean that you may end up downgrading in level in order to match the Guild Leader’s base level, and vice versa. If you already have a base, do note that you will lose your base if you join a Guild that doesn’t have enough capacity for a second base. Second base is unlocked when the base level is 10. To be able to keep your base, do make sure that that the Guild Leader’s base level is at least level 10, and have capacity for one more base.
  • Q: What happen to my Pals when I join a guild?
  • A: Your Pals in your Palbox will remain in your Palbox, same for those in your party. However, those in the same guild will have full complete access to the working Pals assigned to your base.
  • Q: I can’t seem to join my friend’s dedicated server that is password protected. I can’t find it on the community server list either.
  • A: There is a limitation within the server list, preventing it from displaying all available community servers. This can be particularly challenging for players attempting to join password-protected servers, as they are required to continually refresh the server list until the desired server appears. To address this issue, we recommend alternative methods for server access.

Instead of relying solely on the server list, players can utilize the recent server list or directly input the server’s IP address in the dedicated bar. If encountering difficulties in locating a server, especially when connecting with friends, an effective solution involves sharing a specific file path.

To make your server easily accessible to others, follow these steps:

  • Have someone who has successfully connected to the server share the following file: “C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Pal\Saved\SaveGames\UserOption.sav”.
  • Distribute this file to other players.
  • Instruct each player to place the shared file in the same directory: %localappdata%\Pal\Saved\SaveGames.
  • Alternatively, players can reach this directory by pressing the Windows button + R, typing %localappdata%, and navigating to Pal, Saved, SaveGames.
  • Once the file is in place, launch the game, and the server will appear in the recent server list.
  • By adopting these alternative methods and sharing the UserOption.sav file, players can overcome the limitations of the server list and easily connect to their desired servers.
  • Q: Can I move my base?
  • A: Yes you can, but it is a hassle. With that being said, we recommend you getting your base level to 10 first so that you can have 2 bases, making your moving process much easier. The general process of moving your base goes something like this:
  1. Setup a second Palbox at your new location, create a couple of chests right beside the Palbox, and teleport back to your original base.
  2. Manually deconstruct your builds in your original base.Do not dismantle your Palbox at this point yet.
  3. Slowly move your items to the chests in your new location
  4. Once everything has been moved completely, you can now dismantle your old Palbox.
