Building a base in Palworld is just the beginning as you will have to turn it into a formidable shelter for you and your Pals. However, it is impossible to achieve this alone, so here’s how you can assign jobs to your Pals in Palworld.

As the year moves on, more and more people have begun to acknowledge Palworld as one of the biggest releases of 2024. After attracting millions of players with its Minecraft and Pokemon-inspired gameplay, many have already begun building and upgrading their bases.

Catching Pals and building your own base only scratches the surface of what Palworld has to offer. To make your character and base stronger, you will need to put in a lot of work which can get a bit inconvenient without some help from your trusty Pals.

Here’s how you can assign jobs to Pals in your base in Palworld.

How to manually assign tasks to your Pals in Palworld

You can assign jobs to your Pals by simply throwing them at the work site in Palworld. Yes, you will have to literally pick them up and throw them at the site to make them work at the building or the unfinished project.

In Palworld, each and every Pal has a set of definite skills that you will have to be aware of. Similarly, each task in the game involves a certain skillset to be completed, and your desired Pal for that job must possess that exact skill.

For example, for working on a Logging Site, you will need Pals that have the Lumbering skill such as Eikthyrdeer, Lifmunk, and Wumpo. You won’t achieve results on a Logging Site if you put an unsuitable Pal.
