Best Base Locations on Palworld

These are our picks for the best base locations in Palworld, and we’ve chosen a variety based on nearby resource deposits, the ease of building structures here, and how easy it is to protect them from enemies.

Remember that this list is subjective and is to give you an overview of areas where building a foundation may be most beneficial.

Twilight Dunes (-96, -120)

In the twilight dunes on palworld, a player traveling in a van looks from the air at a coastal cliff filled with coal deposits.

This area in Twilight Dunes is a good location if you want to farm charcoal with ease. Building multiple structures here can be tricky as the coal deposits are situated on a tall rock formation, but it will work if you go for a simpler base with a single purpose in mind. However, it’s this rock formation that makes it much more difficult for raids to be carried out successfully, so you might want to think about hiding a few things here as well.

We recommend learning how to survive in the desert if you choose this area, as the weather in Twilight Dunes can change drastically. Plus, if you’re looking for high-quality Pal Oil or capturing your own Alpha Anubis when you’re at a higher level, Twilight Dunes is the place for you.

Mossanda Forest (246, -90)

In palworld, a white quiver dragon and a player riding it observe the ore deposits in Mossanda Forest.

This area is northeast of the Mossanda Forest fast travel point and contains several large ore deposits. This location is an easy area to build a base as it is quite isolated and there are many essential materials around it. There may be some enemies around here, but it should be easy to take them out if your friends are above level 19.

There are no extreme weather fluctuations in this area and it is mostly flat. There are slightly raised areas that make it easier for you to see an incoming attack and there is enough space to create an efficient defense strategy to stop intruders.

Mount Obsidian (-499, -524)

This area is south of the Obsidian Mountain Midpoint fast travel statue and east of the Eternal Pyre Entrance fast travel point. We recommend carrying a fire-type flying mount, such as Vanwyrm, to get around quickly and safely. We recommend this as a secondary base location, as other essential materials, such as Palladium Shards and Wood, are harder to find here.

If you are looking for a place to build a base for sulfur farming, this is the place for you. Mount Obsidian can get hot, but if you have heat-resistant armor or a fire-type friend at your side, then the heat won’t be a problem.

This area is mostly flat, making it easy to arrange various structures for its base. The only thing worth noting is that there will be some level 35+ friends hanging around that you’ll have to deal with, so maybe use this as a late build area.

Sealed Kingdom of the Swift (314, -16)

In palworld, a white quiver dragon and a player riding it observe deposits of water and minerals near the Sealed Kingdom of the Swift.

Don’t panic, we are not talking about entering the Kingdom itself, but rather an area very close to it. This location is southeast of the Sealed Realm of the Swift fast travel point and the Alpha Verdash boss battle area.

The area is a little more challenging in terms of placing structures, as it is divided by a body of water, but there are no weather fluctuations to contend with. There are many essential resources in the surrounding forests and there is even a group of ore deposits on one of the shores.

Additionally, the location is on top of a pretty high hill in every sense, which makes it easier to spot incoming raid attacks and can make for a pretty picturesque home at dawn.

Mount Obsidian (-537, -477)

In palworld, a player riding a vanwyrm is in the air looking at the ore deposits on the ground near the midpoint of Obsidian Mount.

Another one for Mount Obsidian! This time, if you are looking for a place to farm ore in a large, flat area that has a lower risk of being raided, then this is the place for you. However, we recommend using this as a secondary base location as other materials are rare around here if you want to focus on things other than ore.

The area around Mount Obsidian is, as always, extremely hot, so you’ll need a Fire-type friend on your team or heat-resistant armor to survive here, but the multiple ore deposits are worth it. If you place your Palbox strategically, your base can include most of the minerals listed here. Additionally, the fact that the area is mainly flat means that it is quite easy to place structures.

Astral Mountains (-202, 253)

This location is east of Pristine Snowfield and southwest of Unthawable Lake, but you should be prepared for extreme cold if you go here. You can counter the weather by having a Fire-type friend by your side and building heaters in your base once you’ve established it.

It may be cold, but this is the best location we’ve found if you want to farm Pure Quartz. Additionally, the Astral Mountains are home to several high-level friends and other useful materials, so it’s worth braving the cold air to establish a base there.

However, there is usually a level 30 or higher friend here that you will have to get rid of to build your base safely.
