While standard Technology points unlock key recipes, Ancient Technology offers some quality-of-life items and a way to hatch those eggs you keep finding. In this guide, I’ll tell you how to get and use Ancient Technology Points in Palworld.

Where to Find Ancient Technology Points in Palworld

Your Technology tab has two distinct sides. One side is for standard blue Technology Points, and the other is for purple Ancient Technology Points. The latter is more elusive to obtain, and it’s not mentioned as you progress through the tutorial. If you’re like me, you’ve got your eye on the Egg Incubator and Small Feed Bag. So, how do you get them?

Ancient Technology Points are obtained at the end of Syndicate Tower boss fights in Palworld. Since the last objective of your tutorial takes you to fight Zoe and Grizzbolt at the Rayne Syndicate Tower, you get your first five points after that fight.

You’re not limited to tower fights, though. Bosses out in the world, known as Alpha Pals, also yield points. Some I’ve encountered include Mossanda Lux, Wumpo Botan, and Chillet. They’re pretty tough, so don’t think you can just take them on like any other Pal.

How to Farm Ancient Civilization Parts Fast

While you can’t farm bosses for more Ancient Technology Points, you can loot Ancient Civilization Parts by defeating or capturing them with a Pal Sphere. These parts are needed to craft Ancient recipes, so you need plenty of them.

Defeated Alpha Pals and Syndicate Tower bosses typically respawn after an in-game day, which is about 30 minutes for each half. So you can keep fighting them for more parts each time they return.

You should also run Dungeons as often as you can. The bosses drop Ancient Civilization Parts, and you can loot Schematics from the chests before you exit, making them well worth the effort.
