I know they’re cute, but they can’t just freeload through my world. I am a tough boss, and I expect them to help the base if they want a bed to sleep in and food in their bellies.

That’s why I always keep Handiwork Pals around, so they can be building stuff for me while I’m off doing important things like getting lost and hitting Lamballs with a club. Here are the best Handiwork Pals in Palworld.

Best Handiwork Pal: Anubis

Type: Ground
Work Suitability: Handiwork Level 4, Transporting Level 2, Mining Level 3

If you’re looking for the best overall Handiwork pal, look no further than Anubis. Not only does it have Handiwork Level 4, which is the highest in the game, but it also has Transporting Level 2, which is useful for moving stuff around.

Add in Mining Level 3, and you’ve got a Pal who can go and get resources for you, and then use them to build things for you. Perfect.

Best early-game Handiwork Pal: Tanzee

Type: Grass
Work Suitability: Planting Level 1, Handiwork Level 1, Lumbering Level 1, Transporting Level 1, Gathering Level 1

Tanzee is by far the most useful Pal in the early stages of your game. Just look at those work skills, they can do almost anything.

On top of that, you encounter it almost immediately once you leave the game’s starting area, so you can add them to your crew quickly.

Type: Grass
Work Suitability: Planting Level 2, Handiwork Level 3, Lumbering Level 2, Transporting Level 2, Gathering Level 3

To me, Verdash is Tanzee turned up to 11. They have so many useful skills, like Transporting and Lumbering, and most importantly, Handiwork Level 3 means they are very good inside your base.

With Planting and Gathering too, food will never be hard to come by. A really good addition to your squad.

Type: Grass
Work Suitability: Planting Level 2, Handiwork Level 2, Lumbering Level 1, Medicine Level 2, Gathering Level 2

Not quite as powerful as Anubis or Verdash, Elizabee is still a great option to have on your team. Handiwork Level 2 is solid, and Lumbering means they can grab wood and fiber for you.

On top of that Planting and Gathering are useful for food, while a Medicine Pal is always handy.
