Crafting ingots in Palworld is essential if you want to make it very far in the game. Ingots are required to make metal versions of the pick axe, spear, armor, and other equipment needed to help you catch those higher-level pals. But making ingots isn’t as obvious in Palworld as most survival games.
Here are step-by-step instructions on how to craft ingots in Palworld.
Step 1: Setting Up Your Furnace
First things first, to craft ingots, we need a special facility called a Primitive Furnace. But don’t worry, it’s easy to get! Once you’ve reached level 10 in the Technology tree, you can unlock it. Here are the required materials to craft a Primitive Furnace:
- 20 Wood
- 50 Stone
- 3 Flame Organs
Stone and Wood should be easy enough to gather but the Flame Organs sound tricky, but you can find them by defeating fire-type Pals or capturing them. Look for these three low-level fire-type pals to help gather Flame Organs early in the game:
Step 2: Gathering Materials
Now that your furnace is ready, it’s time to gather the materials needed to make Ingots. You will need 2 Ore for every 1 ingot you need to make. You will also notice that your Primitive Furnace says it “Required: Kindling”.
What does Required: Kindling mean?
Simply put this means that you need a fire-type Pal deployed either in your base or on your person deployed. Most of the fire-type Pals have Kindling as a skill.
Where can I find ore?
Ores are special rocks that you can find in Ore Deposits scattered around Palworld. Look out for reddish-brown rocks! With your trusty pickaxe, mine as much Ore as you can carry. Ore weighs a lot so you can only carry small amounts to start the game. Ore can also be found in dungeons/caves.
Ore can also be found by mining regular stone. But this happens at a very small rate. Seems like you can get a max of 1 or 2 Ore per stone deposit.
Some players have set up their base next to Ore deposits so their pals can mine it. But be cautious because if you build over the spot where the Ore spawns it will stop respawning.
Step 3: Crafting Your Ingots
Once you have the ore either on your person or in a nearby storage chest you can start crafting the ingots. The primitive furnace is one facility that requires a Pal to operate. So make sure you have a fire-type Pal deployed to start crafting the ingots.
Step 4: Collect your Ingots
Once your Pal is done kindling the fire and all of your ingots are created you can collect them and start building with metal. Make sure to advance your technology so you can unlock better gear such as the metal pick axe, metal armor, and metal spear.
The biggest thing to remember is to have a fire-type Pal to help you meet the Kindling requirement needed to craft the ingots. Once you have the fire-type deployed they should take care of the rest.
