You have a chance of collecting it from the Pals listed below:

The best Pals to farm High-Quality Pal Oil from are Dumud, Grintale, and Woolipop, as they can be seen roaming around Palpagos Island from early on and they’re not at such high levels.

Where to buy High-Quality Pal Oil in Palworld

Despite there being many Wandering Merchants around Palworld, you can only buy High-Quality Pal Oil from the Wandering Merchant in Duneshelter, in the Dessicated Desert. For anyone who would rather not beat up Pals to get their crafting materials, this is the best way to go.

Best locations to farm High-Quality Pal Oil

There are a couple of ideal locations to farm High-quality Pal Oil in the game but if you’re just starting, then defeating Woolipops is the best method for you.

These Pals can be found southeast of the Bamboo Groves, near the Sealed Realm of the Swordmaster Fast Travel point. They’ll be relatively easy to defeat compared to other higher-level Pals mentioned on the list above.

Many Woolipop can be found on the southeast side of the Bamboo Groves.

Woolipops can be as strong as Level 14, so make sure you’re prepared before engaging them in combat. If you want to be in with a better chance of beating them, we’d recommend having a Dark-type Pal with you as they are weak to Dark-type attacks.

Another method for farming High-Quality Pal Oil -if you’re at a higher level in the game- is to travel to the Twilight Dunes to defeat as many Digtoise and Dumud as you can.

Digtoise has a chance to drop up to six High-Quality Pal Oils every time you capture or kill one. They’re found in abundance in this region, and while they can be a tough fight, they should be manageable with a strong enough team.

We recommend bringing a Grass-type Pal like Robinquill. Its attacks are super effective against Digtoise and its Hawk Eye Partner Ability increases the damage of headshots against enemies. Kill enough Digtoise and you’ll be rolling in oil.

Palworld Mammorest Cryst locationPalworld

In the late game, though, players will have access to the Astral Mountains, where they can find Mammorest Crysts. They have a chance to drop High-Quality Pal Oils when you capture or kill one, but they will be very tough to take down.

As a result, it would be wise to bring a Fire-type Pal such as Vanwyrm to both help get you over the ocean to the mountains and to take down the Mammorest Crysts.

It’s important to note that some Pals like Cryolinx have the special Partner Skill ‘Dragon Hunter’, which increases the number of items Dragon Pals drop when defeated, so that could be a chance to go after the Relaxaurus and Relaxaurus Lux from the list if you’re feeling confident enough.
