1. Catching Pals

One of the fastest ways to farm EXP is by catching a variety of Pals. It’s also recommended to catch the same Pal a total of ten times to gain more experience. You can catch some early game Pals such as Cattiva, Chikipi, and Lamball easily to level up fast in Palworld. 

Additionally, I also recommend you to catch a new Pal whenever you see one. Catching a new Pal will give you an extra amount of EXP. Having a few Pal spheres in hand every time you set off for exploration is not a bad idea. 

2. Defeating Enemies

You can also kill Pals, humans, and bosses to get massive experience, allowing you to level up fast in Palworld. There are strong pals scattered across the open world that are easier to spot as some are large in size. Taking them on and successfully beating them gives you a good amount of EXP. 

If you are not strong enough to beat the strong Pals, you can try farming EXP by killing lower-level Pals and Syndicate members in Palword. You will also encounter bosses inside towers; defeating them is rewarding. Zoe and Grizzbolt is the first early-game boss that you can try beating. 

3. Conquering Dungeons

Taking on Dungeons and successfully completing one is sure to get you a lot of EXP in Palworld to level up fast. The Dungeons are challenging, and you must be prepared beforehand before you set foot in one. It’s recommended to craft enough Pal Spheres and food to have in your inventory. 

You can capture a few Pals and special Alpha Pals in dungeons which can reward you with a good amount of experience. Furthermore, you can also get a few rare materials from dungeons that can be used in crafting which also gives you some amount of EXP. 

4. Building Your Base

You can get a huge amount of EXP while working on your base. Various activities in Palworld such as crafting, farming, and gathering materials can help you level up fast. You can get EXP even if you don’t do anything and leave your Pals to work on your base. 

I recommend you craft a few technologies such as a Logging Site and Stone Pit where your Pals will automatically farm wood and stone for EXP. I suggest you pick a good base location with a lot of space, so you can craft more buildings easily. 

My Opinion On How To Level Up Fast

Palworld is an extensive survival game with a lot of activities to engage in. You can try out various things such as crafting, defeating tough bosses and Pals, catching new Pals, and much more. However, out of these methods, I think catching new Pals while exploring is the best method to gain more experience.
