Statue of Power is the Palworld Structure you’ll need when the Lifmunk Effigies and Pal Souls start piling up in your inventory. Like most other buildings, the Power Statue requires only basic materials such as Stone and Paldium Fragments. Despite being a basic Structure, its role is vital in the game, as it will help you capture Pals faster.
How To Build a Statue of Power in Palworld
Step 1: Unlock the Statue of Power
When it comes to building your first Statue of Power, you’ll need to level up your Base. After reaching level 6, this specific structure becomes available. To unlock the building, you also need Technology Points, earned by leveling up your character.
Then, you must navigate to the Technology Tab in the game’s menu. Pick the Statue of Power structure on the left side of the screen (pictured below), and press A on Xbox to unlock it. Confirm your selection, and that’s about it.
Step 2: Gather the Materials
Luckily, the Statue of Power is built using basic crafting materials. To build it, you’ll need 20 Stones and 10 Paldium Fragments. Even though it requires a lot of stones, by the time you get access to this building, you should already have more than enough. If not, consider building the Stone Pit or start mining Rock Deposits.
Paldium Fragments, as you probably know, are obtained by mining the blue Paldium Deposits or by exploring the world. If you build the Crusher Station, you can increase the production of Paldium Fragments by crushing Stones.
Step 3: Build a Statue of Power
With all the materials in your inventory, it’s time to build the Statue of Power:
- Press Up on your DPad to access the building menu.
- Navigate to the Pal Tab.
- Use the Right Thumbstick to select the Statue of Power.
- Find a suitable spot to place it in your Base, but remember that you can’t move the buildings in Palworld.
- After you find a location for the statue, press X to place it on the ground.
- Finally, press and hold X to complete the building.
How to Use the Statue of Power
In Palworld Early Access, the Statue of Power is more than a building making your Base look good. It is actually a very important structure that allows you to deposit the Lifmunk Effigies you find while exploring the world. The Limfunk Effigies you bring back to the Statue of Power increase your Capture Power.
Furthermore, the Statue of Power is also used to offer Pal Souls. These Pal Souls (as you can see) are random drops and can be used to increase your Pal’s Stats.
To conclude, the Statue of Power in Palworld is a vital structure for your Base, so make sure you have one in each settlement to upgrade the Pals in your party and your Capture Rate.
