You can change your Palworld World settings in the Custom Settings menu.

In Custom Settings, there are a list of sliders that let you change a variety of things in your World. However, we’re going to focus on the EXP rate and Gatherable Items Multiplier sliders. 

EXP rate will adjust how quickly you can earn XP in your playthrough. If you’d like to increase it, make sure you adjust the slider in Custom Settings to a higher rate. This will ensure that you are gaining XP quicker and slowing that grind down.

The Gatherable Items Multiplier will adjust how quickly you gather resources. Increasing this slider will have you and your Pals gather a larger amount of resources at a time, which will significantly cut down on the time it takes to get everything you need. 

Of course, if you find that the grind is a bit fast, you can always decrease these sliders in Custom Settings.

Resource gathering in Palworld is the foundation of managing your base and your Pals. Resource locations are scattered throughout the map and the Pals who are best at collecting them even more so.

  1. Establish a base near a resource rich area. 
  2. Get to know the map and where to find the resources you need.
  3. Build a base near a water area to quickly gather Pal Fluid. 
  4. Utilize Pals that are best for each resource. 
  5. Make sure you put Pals with high Gathering and Transport skills on the job.

In tandem with the Gatherable Items Multiplier and these tips, you’ll probably get enough resources to get high-quality items and level your Technology quickly.
