Palworld Ingots, Refined Ingots, Pal Metal Ingots and farming

Palworld Ingots, Refined Ingots, and Pal Metal Ingots are essential crafting materials for a fully functioning, Pal-operated weapons factory.

How do you get Ingots in Palworld? Palworld isn’t just about creature collection, it’s also a Valheim-like survival game with building, crafting, and more. As such, the world around you contains a multitude of resources to collect and turn into other crafting materials in a process familiar to survival game veterans.

Palworld Ingots are just some of the many useful Palworld resources you must uncover to build machines and furniture for your Palworld base, and to eventually work towards full automation – leaving your Pals to work hard while you’re out leveling up, beating bosses, and hunting for wild Palworld Eggs. If you’ve seen a recipe requiring Ingots, but aren’t sure how to find them, here’s what you need to do.

How to get Palword Ingots

Palworld Ingots are crafted from Ore, and must be made in a Primitive Furnace. In a unique twist to most crafting or survival games, you can’t power this furnace yourself, and must instead put a particular type of Pal to work churning out ingots.

You can find out more about how to get ore from our Palworld Ore guide, including how to farm it, but the main thing to know is that it can be found pretty much everywhere. You or your pals can gather the copper-colored mineral to be able to turn two pieces into one Palworld Ingot in a Primitive Furnace.

The Primitive Furnace recipe can be unlocked at player level 10 using three Technology Points. Once unlocked, you can craft a Primitive Furnace directly from your build menu using 20 wood, 50 stone, and three Flame Organs. You have a chance to obtain a Flame Organ when killing or capturing fire-type Pals.

With ore and a Primitive Furnace ready to go, there is one more thing you need to forge your Ingots: a fire-type Pal. Using your Palbox, put a fire-type Pal to work at your base, and they will automatically heat up the furnace when there is a crafting recipe in the queue.

How to get Palworld Refined Ingots

As you progress, you need more precious materials to build more powerful and more resilient weapons and tools, better Pal Spheres, and even guns. For many of these, you need Refined Ingots.

Refined Ingots cannot be produced in a Primitive Furnace, and instead can only be obtained from an Improved Furnace, unlocked for four Technology Points at level 34. To craft an Improved Furnace, you need 100 stone, 30 cement 15 Flame Organ, and this, again, is kindled by fire-type Pals. Place Coal and Ore into your Improved Furnace to output refined ingots.

Ever further through the Technology upgrade system, you can unlock an additional type of furnace in order to craft Pal Metal Ingots.

Naturally, this furnace is powered by electric-type Pals instead of fire.

How to farm Ingots in Palworld

Once you have any of these Palworld furnaces set up with the correct Pals working on them, you can almost fully automate Ingot production. Pals with the handiwork skill gather nearby Ore automatically, while fire and electric pals keep furnaces running – all you need to do is queue Ingot recipes.

Unfortunately, presumably to save using up valuable resources in the wrong recipe, Pals cannot queue Ingot recipes while you’re away – if there are no Ingots queued, none will be made.

That’s everything you need to know about Palworld Ingots, the different variations, and how to get them all. There are hundreds of crafting recipes in Palworld, and plenty of resources you’ll need to make them, so let us help you find Palworld Sulphur, Palworld Carbon Fiber, and more as you explore everything the massive Palworld map has to offer.
