Basics of Crafting

The idea of crafting a workbench of sorts that can be used to further craft a wide array of items is not particularly new. But Palworld spices things up a bit in their approach. The game offers the player 9 different workbenches! Each, of course, is suited for crafting specific types of items only.

For example, one workbench is used for only crafting healing items, while another workbench is used for its capacity to craft healing items. Therefore, you must know which kind of workbench provides what crafting options.

Now that you have a basic idea of what differentiates the crafting mechanism of Palworld from other games, let’s dive deep into each of the workbenches.
