Mossanda is a mid-game Pal that is great to have around your camp. This Pal has a level two lumbering skill, allowing it to chop wood fairly quickly. Most importantly, it also has the transporting work suitability at level two, allowing it to transfer said wood over to a box for your use. This Pal can also help you build objects and even help with your gardens.

A strong base defender

Mossanda is also great at defending your base. After unlocking its partner skill, you can also give it grenade launchers that can take out large numbers of enemies quickly.


Bushi is one of the few Pals that has a level three lumbering skill. Similar to Mossanda, this Pal has much more uses than just gathering wood making it amazing for your camp. For instance, Bushi can also use the kindling work suitability to smelt ore and the transporting skill to move items around for you.

Eikthyrdeer is one of the many early-game Pals you can find that will really help you with getting wood. This Pal is better suited to gathering wood outside of camp thanks to its partner skill but it is also very effective in your camp. Unfortunately, it only has the lumbering skill so it won’t be helping out in other areas.


Robinquill is another grass-type Pal with a lot of work suitability skills you can take advantage of. While it only has lumbering at level one, it also has level two transporting, level two handiwork, and level two gathering. This well-rounded worker can hit many areas of your camp while also gathering some wood on the side.
