One of the most important early-game materials in Palworld are Rocks, which are used in several recipes including Axes and Pickaxes. Getting them can be a chore though, if you don’t know the fastest way.
Like any open-world RPG, stone is a valuable commodity, especially as you first start out in the game. Think of Minecraft, where stone tools are the first upgrade you make, immediately opening new possibilities for you.
Palworld is exactly the same. Early on, the game will tell you to keep an eye out for Rock, and instruct you to pick it up if you see it on the ground. This is tedious though. Walking around, looking at the floor hoping to stumble on a grey rock? That’s not for me. Thankfully, there’s another way.
Fastest way to get Rocks in Palworld
The fastest way to get Rocks in Palworld is to find a big boulder and start swinging a pickaxe at it. That’s it, there’s no crazy secret to it, just find one and get to work.
You’ll add so much stone to your inventory this way. I found a boulder and got 25 pieces of rock from it. Imagine how long it would take to find a rock, walk over, and pick it up 25 times. It’s a waste of your time, and frankly, you deserve better.
How to get Pals to mine Rocks for you
Once you reach Level 7, you will unlock and be able to craft the Stone Pit, which enables Pals to go and get stones for you.
The Pals will need to have the Mining Work Skill though, so don’t expect, for example, a Lamball to suddenly start fetching rock for you.

What is Stone used for in Palworld?
Stone is one of the most important materials in Palworld, and it is used in almost everything you’ll craft, including:
- Tools, like pickaxes, axes, swords, and grenades.
- Pal Spheres, including normal, Mega, and Giga variants.
- Pal Boxes, Storage, and Furnaces
If you want to progress, you’re going to need stone–and lots of it.
