Wondering how to get High Quality Pal Oil in Palworld? High Quality Pal Oil is a crafting material in Palworld, most commonly used to make Polymer. In turn, this is a vital ingredient used to make some of the best weapons in the game such as the Assault Rifle and Rocket Launcher.

High Quality Pal Oil is also used for structural recipes, saddles for some Pal mounts and several Pal-specific weapons, including Grizzbolt's Minigun and the Mossanda Grenade Launcher.

So if you're looking to upgrade your firepower, you'll need to farm High Quality Pal Oil. Below, we've listed all Pals that drop High Quality Pal Oil, all oil crafting recipes and the best ways to farm High Quality Pal Oil in the game.

Where to farm High Quality Pal Oil in Palworld

Out of the Pals listed above, Mammorest and Relaxaurus Pals will usually yield the most High Quality Pal Oil per battle (around three each). These Pals are a lot more formidable than the rest, however, so you'll need to have your weapons and Pals at the ready.

The Relaxaurus is both a Dragon and Water Pal, meaning it is weak against Electric and Ice Pals. I found particular luck finding pairs of them around The Ascetic Falls waypoint, west of the spawning area.

When hunting Relaxaurus Pals to farm for High Quality Pal Oil, make sure you also have either a Cryolinx or Orserk Pal in your team. The Orserk has a useful Partner Skill that allows Water Pals to drop more loot. Similarly, Cryolinx enables Dragon Pals to drop more loot when caught or defeated. This means your yield of High Quaility Pal Oil will be even greater. You can usually find Cryolinx Pals by the Unthawable Lake or sold by Black Marketeers. Whereas the Orserk is slightly rarer and can be found within the No.3 Wildlife Sanctuary.

Alternatively, you can farm Woolipop for one oil apiece. These are a lot easier to take down and are plentiful around the Ravine Entrance waypoint, within the Bamboo Groves. It is also possible to buy oil directly, as mentioned below.

Where to buy High Quality Pal Oil in Palworld

As well as farming High Quality Pal Oil yourself, you can also buy oil from Wandering Merchants in Palworld. These Merchants are usually recognisable by their bright red attire and chances are, the first one you'll come across is the merchant within the Small Settlement, south of the starting area.

The above interactive map highlights all 17 merchant locations in Palworld as well as all other dungeon locations, alpha bosses and other points of interest.

Buying High Quality Pal Oil from a Wandering Merchant will usually set you back around 300 Coins. If you're struggling to find Coins in Palworld, we recommend recruiting a Mau Pal to your base. These helpful critters will produce Coins regularly when assigned to a Ranch and can usually be found within the lower levels of dungeons across the map. See our full Pal list for more information on each Pal in the game and their unique abilities.

High Quality Pal Oil recipes

The main use for High Quality Pal Oil is to make Polymer. Polymer is then used to make some of the best weapons in Palworld like the Assault Rifle and Rocket Launcher. As such, you'll need to come up with an effective Pal Oil farming method early on to facilitate later game progress, (see above for farming details).

We also have comprehensive guides for other crafting materials like Coal, Pal Fluids, Leather, Bones and more to help you craft your way to success in Palworld. Below are all the crafting recipes that require either High Quality Pal Oil or Polymer to make.
