In Palworld, there are more than 100 resources and crafting materials, and sulfur (Sulfur) is certainly one of the most important. In this guide, we show you where to find sulfur, how to mine it effectively, and what you can make from it.
Finding & Using Sulfur (TLDR)
- In Palworld, sulfur veins are rare, and you can find them scattered in the open world.
- There are hotspots where you can find a lot of sulfur at once.
- Build a base near a large deposit to let your Pals farm it.
- It is best to mine sulfur with Mining Level 3 Pals, which increases your carrying capacity.
Finding Sulfur in Palworld – The Best Farming Locations
Those looking to find and mine sulfur effectively in Palworld should stick to a specific region of the game world: Obsidian Mountain. This lava desert, complete with a gigantic volcano in the center, is located in the bottom left of the map. Around the volcano, you’ll find numerous sulfur veins, which are particularly rich here. The following map marks the best places to find sulfur in the Obsidian Mountain region:
Once you’ve found one of the large sulfur deposits, you can start mining right away with your pickaxe and farm as much sulfur as your inventory can hold. If you’re actually mining sulfur with your pickaxe, take a Pal with you that increases your carrying capacity. However, there are some much more efficient mining methods to quickly get sulfur.
The Best Mining Method: For mid- or late-game, especially base building, is a good tactic to generate an endless amount of sulfur:
- Find a place with many sulfur deposits. For example, the peak of Obsidian Mountain.
- Set up your Palbox. Make sure that as many sulfur veins as possible are within the base boundary.
- Build some chests next to your Palbox, so Pals with transporting ability can store the resources here.
- Now build beds and a food bowl for your Pals.
- Add Dumuds, Tombats, or Digtoise to your base and let them do their work.
Also add some Pals with the work suitability (ability) Transporting. Two level 1 transport Pals like Cattiva should be sufficient. As always, you can find all the Pals in our complete Paldeck. Your Pals will now mine all the deposits and store them. After a full in-game day has passed, the sulfur veins respawn, and your Pals start over. This is how you quickly farm a lot of sulfur in Palworld without lifting a finger.
Author’s Tip: Decide at the beginning whether you want to farm sulfur, coal, or ore with this method. Only later in the game will you unlock more base slots. At the beginning of your journey, you only have two bases available.
Alternative for Early Game: If you’ve just built your first base and are getting used to the game, try one of the following solutions:
To mine sulfur as effectively as possible, you can share the actual farming with a Pal. Pals like Digtoise or Dumud autonomously mine ores, coal, and sulfur when you spawn them from your party. At the same moment, you can also work the rock with your pickaxe to maximize the amount of sulfur. A disadvantage is that both Dumud and Digtoise take quite a long time to generate even 1x sulfur.
You can earn higher amounts with Rushoar. You can ride Rushoar and use its charging ability to quickly farm several chunks of sulfur.
You have control over how much sulfur you mine right now. However, you can’t quickly go for a little Pal-trainer meanwhile.
What is Sulfur Used for in Palworld? All Crafting Recipes
So far, sulfur is only needed for the construction of ammunition of any kind. Whether for pistols, rifles, or explosives. All types of ammunition are based on sulfur, from which you then produce gunpowder (Gun Powder). 1x Gunpowder is made as follows:
