Best Pals for Your Base in Palworld

If you want to survive in the brutal world of Palpagos Island, you’re going to need to craft. A lot. But the process of crafting can be greatly accelerated with the right Pals.

There are 12 different Work Suitability stats. Depending on your Pal’s species, they’ll be good at some things or be completely incompetent at others. Those 12 Work Suitability stats are:

  • Kindling – used to heat, generally smelting or cooking.
  • Watering – used to water, usually plantations or crusher.
  • Planting – used to plant in plantations.
  • Generating Electricity – used to generate electricity, usually pylons to power electronic technology.
  • Handiwork – used to produce items, generally on weapons, sphere, or production lines.  
  • Gathering – used to gather produce after it’s grown in plantations.
  • Lumbering – used to cut wood.
  • Mining – used to mine stone, ore, and any other mineral in the base area.
  • Medicine Production – used to craft medicine at medicine tables.
  • Cooling – used to lower the temperature in an area, generally for fridges and coolers.
  • Transporting – used to transport resources to boxes, usually resources like wood or ore, but can be dropped items as well.
  • Farming – used to process materials on a ranch, usually wool and eggs.

Level 4 is the highest Work Suitability a Pal can have in a category, while one is a basic ability to perform the task. The higher the level, the faster the Pal will complete the job they’re assigned to.

Now that we have our categories, let’s dive into the best Pals for each one.
