What are Ancient Technology points?

Ancient Technology points are a system that helps you grow your list of recipes, weapons and buildings. Think of them like skill points, but for specifically crafting and with a different method to obtain them. As you don’t get them through levelling up, you must seek them yourself…


Where and how do I get them?

Two methods are involved in gaining Ancient Technology points. Both are linked to bosses, that being Alpha Pal bosses or Tower bosses.

Alpha Pal Bosses

With Alpha Pal Bosses, these tend to be overworld encounters where you fight a stronger than normal Pal marked on the map with a circle as seen here on this map:

Alpha bosses' difficulty ramp up alongside your level, meaning a challenge always awaits you! You want to be very careful of your health with them due to this, as they will keep you on your toes. However, you can only obtain one Ancient Technology point per Alpha Pal. The map marks a defeated Alpha Pal with a check mark to show you’ve previously defeated them. Feel free to fight them again once they respawn! Just keep in mind it won’t help towards Ancient Technology points.

Tower Bosses

Tower bosses have you take on another character and their Pal as the final goal of said tower. Every Tower Boss upon completion grants you five Ancient Technology points. The first one you will face is within the tutorial of the game: Zoe and Grizzbolt. Tower Boss fights are much harder than regular fights due to the large health these characters’ Pals have. Five towers total range across the map, as seen here:

The list of Tower bosses include:Palworld Tower Boss designs collective image


  • Zoe and Grizzbolt
  • Lily and Lyleen
  • Axel and Orserk
  • Marcus and Faleris
  • Victor and Shadowbeak


All these uniquely designed individuals will help get altogether 25 Ancient Technology points. Talk about a deal! Just remember these are very hard challenges, especially after Zoe and Grizzbolt.


What can I unlock with Ancient Technology points?

Whilst Ancient Technology points aren’t tied to level, what you can use them with is! Items, weapons and tools are all crucial within this. So levelling up helps a lot with actually being able to use your Ancient Technology points in the first place. Here’s a list of what you can unlock with Ancient Technology points at each level:
