Acquiring and Caring for Pals as Mounts

Pals can be found wandering the environments of Palworld and approached peacefully. Players need to capture then level up their mount's including feeding and caring. Building a bond and showing respect to these creatures, and once the individual mount is crafted for theor Pals, lead to riding and utilizing their abilities.

It's important to continue caring for bonded mounts by grooming, feeding, housing and healing them when needed. Treating mounts ethically improves performance and unlocks unique traits through progression. If neglected, they may rebel against players. Overall, building positive relationships with mounts is deeply interwoven with the gameplay of Palworld. Neglect them and they will revolt and or just end up sleeping all day, or worse die!


Uses For Mounts

Mounts confer major mobility advantages for traversing Palworld's diverse biomes like dense forests, tall mountains and vast deserts. They aid immensely in foraging expeditions to collect crucial resources. Mounts can also directly participate in combat and defense of player bases with the right training. Furthermore, raising mounts from infancy and observing them mature can be a fulfilling meta-game in itself for those inclined.
