Best ways to farm Bones in Palworld

The best Pals to farm Bones for in the early stages of Palworld are the Rushoar and Vixy. These Pals that are located near the Small Settlement, which isn't far from the Plateau of Beginnings. If you wander the foothills and cliffsides north and south of the settlement, you should run into either before too long, and it's worth catching one of each.

Rushoar - who is an aggressive Pal that attacks on sight - certainly isn't one of the fastest mounts in Palworld, but is nevertheless an easily accesible steed during the early game, with the Rushoar Saddle unlocking at Technology Level 6. Rushoar also drops Leather, which you'll need for crafting saddles and armour, and boasts a Level 1 Work Suitability in Mining.

Conveniently, the Small Settlement is also home to a Wandering Merchant who sells Bones for 100 Gold Coins. If you don't feel like running around defeating Pals for their Bones, you can always purchase a load all at once here.

Best ways to use Bones in Palworld

Once you have Bones at your disposal, you'll probably first use them to craft medicine for Pals who are suffering from physical ailments like Ulcer, or low SAN (Sanity) ailments like Depressed. You'll need at least the Medieval Medicine Workbench, which unlocks at Technology Level 12, to begin crafting medicine like Medical Supplies and High Grade Medical Supplies.

If you want to automate the medicine making process, it's necessary to have an array of Pals at your base who are capable at the Medicine Production Work Suitability skill. Lifmunk, Flopie, Robinquill, and Loveander are all good choices in Palworld's early game.

Once you're accustomed to using Bones for medicine crafting, your next major project that requires Bones will probably be the Mega Glider, which becomes available at Technology Level 18. This elevated version of the glider is superior to the starting Normal Parachute, and will be immensely useful as you continue to navigate the cliffs and valleys of the Palpagos Islands.
