While you will generally prioritize assigning Pals with higher Work Suitability rankings to the appropriate tasks, Pals with equal initially equal Work Suitability rankings can be further affected by those additional attributes. As such, you’ll want to pay attention to those Pals’ full stat sheets to ensure you’re choosing the one that is not only suitable for the job in the first place but most capable of completing it efficiently.
Palworld: Best Base Pals For Every Work Suitability
More of than not, the best base Pals in Palworld will be determined by your needs at a given time and the roster of Pals available to you. So, if you need to focus on a task that requires Kindling, you’ll want to assign your best available Kindling Pal to the task. The endgame goal is to try to acquire the best available Pals for every conceivable task and put them to work.
Early on, though, the best thing you can do is acquire Pals who are proficient in as many Work Suitability categories as possible. That will help you get the most out of your initially small roster of available Pals.
With that in mind, here’s a brief rundown of some of the best all-around base Pals you should prioritize acquiring at various points in the game:
Best All-Around Base Pals: Lifmunk, Cattiva, Tanzee, Pengullet, Penking, Flopie, Wumpo, Anubis, Lyleen, Quivern, Petallia, Bristla, Robinquill, Beegarde
Those are the Pals you’ll want to capture if you’re looking to fill your base with workers who excel at the widest possible variety of tasks. Just note that Pals like Lifmunk, Tanzee, and Pengullet will be easier to acquire early in the game, while some others will take you slightly longer to find and catch. At that point, you may want to consider focusing on specialized Pals instead. Still, those all-around workers are always easy to rely on in a pinch.
