If you and your Pals are struggling to take down the tower bosses and Alpha Pals in Palworld, it might be time to upgrade your gear with legendary schematics. Legendary schematics can help you get that extra oomph that you need by increasing your damage output or defense.

Read on for a full legendary schematics list in Palworld, plus details on where to find and how to get all legendary schematics.

How to get legendary schematics in Palworld

Legendary schematics can be found in chests or as rare drops from specific Alpha Pal bosses. There is a low chance that you’ll find a legendary schematic when you open a chest around the map or at the end of a dungeon. As for Alpha Pal bosses, legendary schematics can be received after you catch, defeat, or butcher them.

Currently, the most efficient way to find legendary schematics in Palworld is to catch the Alpha Pal and then butcher them with the meat cleaver to essentially double your chances. If you really want to increase your odds, we suggest that you change the following world settings:

  • Day Time Speed - 5
  • Night Time Speed - 5
  • Pal Capture Rate - 2
  • Pal Appearance Rate - 3

With these settings, Alpha Pals will spawn quicker, be easier to catch, and spawn in multiples of three. If three bosses are too tough to deal with, drop the Pal appearance rate down to a multiplier that you’re comfortable with.

As a small note, legendary equipment require a lot more resources than your normal quality gear. In some cases, you may need to gather almost 10 times the materials to create your legendary gear.
