Every Pal has totally different “work suitability” expertise, that means that some might mine rocks whereas others might water crops. You desire a numerous group of Buddies to maintain issues going, however you don’t need them to be too numerous. That will help you out, we’ve compiled an inventory of the greatest Buddies in your base.
You’ll shortly understand that when you will have a Pal who does a variety of various things, like Penking, who has many base expertise, they get distracted and don’t really do the duty you need them to do.

Beneath, we listing out a number of Buddies which are good in early-game, mid-game, and late-game for the duties you’ll want probably the most. We additionally listing the place to seek out them or what to breed to get them, in the event that they’re tough to seek out. Most Buddies have a number of places to seek out them and dozens of breeding mixtures, however we tried to listing the simplest places and combos. (Now we have a information on the quickest flying mount, if you happen to’re in search of that sort of factor.)
Finest Buddies for Handiwork
You’ll want Buddies with Handiwork that can assist you craft objects and make new buildings. Some late-game objects and and buildings take a lengthy time to craft and if you happen to don’t need to stand round for 3 minutes holding down a single button, then you definately want some guys that can assist you craft.
Finest early Pal for Handiwork: Sparkit
- Ability ranges: Handiwork 1, Producing Electrical energy 1, Transporting 1
Certain, Cattiva and Lamball even have degree one Handiwork, however they’ll get caught up in doing different stuff (mining and ranching), so it’s greatest to only have a Sparkit round. It’ll concentrate on serving to you craft and construct, and transport your stuff to your chests when not actively engaged on one thing.
Chances are you’ll be anxious about its Producing Electrical energy ability, however early on, you received’t have something that wants electrical energy anyway, so it received’t get distracted.
Finest mid- and endgame Pal for Handiwork: Anubis
- Breeding mixtures: Celaray/Relaxaurus, Penking/Bushi
- Ability ranges: Handiwork 4, Mining 3, Transporting 2
Regardless that Anubis is an endgame-ish boss, you possibly can really breed it very simply utilizing a ton of various mixtures. Make one as quickly as you possibly can and then you definately don’t actually have to fret about upgrading your Handiwork squad down the road.
That stated, Anubis has the best base Handiwork stat within the sport at degree 4. It might probably do a variety of issues, nevertheless it does all of them fairly effectively, making Anubis one of many solely multi-functional Buddies we actually advocate.
Finest Buddies for Kindling
Buddies with Kindling aid you smelt ingots and cook dinner meals. They’ll additionally energy any heaters you will have. You’ll need sooner smelting speeds in a while within the sport, as you want tons of ingots and also you’ll desire a fixed provide of them coming in.
Finest early Pal for Kindling: Foxsparks
This factor is straightforward to seek out and it’ll gentle all of your fires. That’s about it.
Finest mid-game Pal for Kindling: Kitsun
- Breeding mixtures: Penking/Rushoar, Rooby/Grintale, Gumoss/Nitewing
- Ability ranges: Kindling 2
After you have entry to the snowy space round Lily and Lyleen, search certainly one of these out at night time and add it to your base. It has degree two Kindling, so it’ll cook dinner and smelt sooner than Foxsparks.
Finest endgame Pal for Kindling: Jormuntide Ignis
Jormuntide Ignis is definitively one of the best Kindling Pal within the sport, with a Kindling base degree of 4. It’ll smelt all of your stuff actually shortly, however with one trade-off: It’s large. Jormuntide Ignis is gigantic so if in case you have a primarily indoor base, it’ll be buggy. We stored all our smelting instruments exterior so that they had no drawback, however I did have to look at him attempt to get into place to smelt 4 occasions.
Sadly, you possibly can solely breed a Jormuntide Ignis by breeding two… different Jormuntide Ignis. Nonetheless, it’s very generally discovered on the Wildlife Protect #2, as proven above.
Finest Buddies for Mining
Mining Buddies will aid you farm rock, ore, sulfur, coal, and quartz. These Buddies are particularly necessary, as these sources might be your primary ingredient for superior Pal spheres and ammo.
Finest early Pal for Mining: Rushoar
This man hits rocks! That’s actually all there’s to it! Notice that Rushoar is extraordinarily early-game. Its low Mining degree makes it so it can’t even mine ore.
Finest mid-game Pal for Mining: Digtoise
- Breeding mixtures: Penking/Woolipop, Gumoss/Kingpaca, Rushoar/Surfent
- Ability ranges: Mining 3
A bunch of Digtoise will take you a great distance. There’s a motive why each YouTuber, TikToker, and guide-maker recommends organising an ore farm with this stuff. You’ll encounter them pretty early-ish, so you possibly can seize a bunch of them. All they know how you can do is mine! They’re gonna mine all that ore for you.
Finest end-game Pal for Mining: Blazamut
- Breeding mixtures: Blazamut/Suzaku Aqua
- Ability ranges: Kindling 3, Mining 4
Sadly, there are not any easy-peasy methods to get Blazamut eggs, however you possibly can catch a assured Alpha Blazamut within the location above. (Notice that it’s in a mineshaft, which you could find the doorway to on the location we marked with the star.) You too can hardly ever discover them at Wildlife Protect #3, which is above the massive desert within the northeast. After you have one Blazamut, you possibly can breed it with a Suzaku Aqua to get extra.
Our endgame mining setups are a number of of those at a great mining camp (whether or not it’s ore or coal, which you’ll want probably the most of in end-game), with an acceptable variety of beds, a feed field, and a shower. They obliterate each rock in sight and after they’re finished, I simply put them again into the Palbox and produce them again out as soon as the rocks respawn and I would like extra sources. This stuff are so environment friendly, it’s scary.
Finest Buddies for Watering
Whilst you don’t want an skilled Pal to water your crops, you’ll need one for grinding stone into Paldium fragments. These Buddies can even mill any wheat you will have into flour, which can be all the time good to have for cooking.
Finest early Pal for Watering: Teafant
This factor waters your crops and stuff with no different distractions. Hooray!
Finest mid-game Pal for Watering: Azurobe
- Breeding mixtures: Incineram/Sweepa, Elizabee/Univolt
- Ability ranges: Watering 3
So, you can breed Azurobe, however you must simply catch the Alpha Azurobe — it’s solely degree 17. You too can decide to seize extra Azurobes from the Wildlife Protect #1 within the south, if you happen to don’t like having an enormous Pal junk up your base.
Both approach, this can be a nice non-obstructive Pal (see beneath) that waters and solely waters. Whether or not it’s making Paldium from a crusher or watering your crops, it’ll get stuff finished quick.
Finest endgame Pal for Watering: Jormuntide
- Breeding mixtures: Sweepa/Beakon, Elizabee/Relaxaurus
- Ability ranges: Watering 4
Similar to Jormuntide Ignis, common water-type Jormuntide is the definitively greatest Watering Pal within the sport, with a base Watering ability of 4. And identical to it’s fire-type brethren, it’s gigantic. When you catch one of many two Alpha Jormuntides and put them to work, they’re even larger, so we don’t advocate that in order for you a base that doesn’t bug out. Seize the Alpha Jormuntides and breed them to make a regular-sized one or breed an Elizabee with a Relaxaurus to get one.
(Personally, since I take advantage of Jormuntide Ignis to smelt stuff, I simply settled with utilizing Azurobe to maintain my crushers and mills going, because it’s not gigantic. I believe the massive Buddies are sort of an eyesore, nevertheless it’s a finally private desire.)
