If I could get at least one more Orserk...

To make some of the best armor in the game (Lightweight Plasteel armor), you will first have to farm a lot of Crude Oil. Here's our best Crude Oil farm map in Palworld, based on your needs and the amount of sources present.

Where to farm Crude Oil in Palworld

There are a lot of Oil resources on the Palworld islands, but there are only a few spots that I would suggest setting up as your Crude Oil farm. If you want to know where to go, keep reading.

Mount Obsidian Oil Farm Location

On Mount Obsidian, you will usually only find one Oil source in an area. I prefer to set up a farm where there is more, but if you want additional ore farming, specifically for Coal (which is a very important material), then you can set up in the following two locations.

  • -735, -686
  • -603, -728

Sakurajima Oil Farm Location

Sakurajima is the perfect location for Oil farming since you will usually get two Oil sources in a single area that can be covered by a base. That means that you can have two Crude Oil Extractors going at the same time on one base. Here are the best locations for a farm on Sakurajima:

  • -583, 246
  • -550, 192
  • -510, 174

How to farm Crude Oil in Palworld

To farm Crude Oil in Palworld, you need to build a Crude Oil Extractor first. However, keep in mind that this tool can only be used inside your base.

As you can see above, I set up my Crude Oil farm on Sakurajima -510, 174 near the Mushroom Wetlands. I prefer this location because it has two Oil sources, but it also has an adorable mushroom background (sometimes it's nice to have a pretty vista as a backdrop to your material grinding efforts!).

Place down the Palbox to set up the base. Now, craft a chest where you can bring any of the necessary materials from your other base. You will definitely be struggling due to the weight, so either use the Grappling gun or just Respawn and then spawn in the Crude Oil base (the number of times I died just because I didn't want to move slowly is pretty high).

Once you have all of the materials transferred to your new base, you can start building. Make sure to have Pals in your base that have Handiwork level 3 to help you build items faster. Also, don't forget to think of your Pals' comfort. Build them beds, a food box, and a hot spring to relax.

Item NameCrafting Ingredients
Crude Oil Extractor- Pal Metal Ingot x 250
- Circuit Board x 50
Large Power Generator- Pal Metal Ingot x 200
- Electric Organ x 200
Electric Pylon- Ingot x 100
- Electric Organ x 30
- Circuit Board x20

The Large Power Generator is necessary since the smaller ones won't even be able to charge more than three or four percent before being drained again. The Electric Pylon boosts the speed at which the electricity is generated, making it easier for the Extractor to consistently work.

The only Pal that has Generating Electricity level 4 is Orserk, who you can find at Wildlife Sanctuary No. 3 (I say find loosely since I visited the island about 50 times before it finally spawned). It's good to have multiple of them if you can since they are the best.

Another way to get Orserk is through breeding. You can get this Pal by breeding Relaxaurus and Grizzbolt. If you don't have any of these, you can also use Helzephyr Lux. You can find these Pals flying around on the northern beaches of Sakurajima at -521,343. They will also keep generating electricity overnight, which is perfect when Orserk is asleep.
