Reaching level 6 is the first milestone in Palworld for riding your very first Pal. To mount Pals, you need to unlock the Pal Gear Workbench technology.

The Pal Gear Workbench is a crafting table that allows you to craft items that enable Pals to use their Partner Skills.

Pals in Palworld have a variety of skills. These include Active Skills, which are standard attacking abilities, and Work Suitability skills, used for base management like mining and farming.

They also have Partner Skills which are unique abilities specific to each Pal-type. For example, Foxparks have Partner Skills that allow players to holster and use them as a flamethrower. Similarly, rideable Pals have a “mountable” Partner Skill.

In some instances, Partner Skills are available immediately when you catch a Pal. In other cases, you must craft items at the Pal Gear Workbench to enable these skills. Saddles for example, necessary for enabling mounting Partner Skills, are items that you need to craft.

How to build a Pal Gear Workbench

In order to build a Pal Gear Workbench, you’ll need:

  • 10 Paldium Fragments
  • 10 Wood
  • 10 Cloth

After that, you can unlock the Rushoar Saddle technology, enabling you to create a saddle for riding a Rushoar, a boar-like Pal mount.

There’s a chance you might not run into a Rushoar at the beginning.

But no worries, there are three more ground mounts and one flying mount that you can capture and ride early in the game.

To obtain these, you’ll need additional technology, the Primitive Furnace, and a Pal with “Kindling” work ability to light the furnace.

Here’s a quick step-by-step guide on how to obtain ingots:

  1. Reach level 8 and unlock the Primitive Furnace technology.
  2. Build a Primitive Furnace using 20 wood, 50 stone, and 3 Flame Organs.
  3. Similar to obtaining Pal Fluids in Palworld, you’ll need to obtain Flame Organs by either capturing or killing Fire-type Pals, like the Foxparks. You’ll also need to capture one of them and put them to work in your base, as you need them for firing up the Primitive Furnace.
  4. Mine ores. You need 20 ores to create the 10 ingots required for the Eikthyrdeer Saddle.
  5. Place 20 ores into the Primitive Furnace. Again, make sure a Pal with the ‘Kindling’ Work Suitability skill is present in your base.
  6. This Pal will automatically ignite the Furnace, refining the ore into ingots.

Eikthyrdeers are also tougher to defeat and capture compared to other early mountable ground Pals. However, the effort is worthwhile as they look magnificent. .

One of your first flying mounts in Palworld – Nitewing

You can start flying around with a mount early in the game by capturing a Nitewing and unlocking Nitewing Saddle technology at level 15.

However, to capture them, you’ll probably need to use a bow to deal damage, as you won’t be able to reach with melee attacks.
