The beautiful and dangerous open world of Palworld is vast, which means you will want to get your first mount as soon as possible. For us, it was the glorious Melpaca, so we are here to help you craft a Melpaca Saddle as soon as possible.

We'll explain how you can craft a Melpaca Saddle in Palworld, how you can unlock it in the first place, and how to ride mounts, so let's saddle up!

We aren't going to beat around the bush here. You need to reach Level 7 and unlock the Melpaca Saddle item, spending two points. From here, you must head to your Pal Gear Workbench to craft the item with the following resources:

  • x3 Leather
  • x5 Wool
  • x5 Paldium Fragment

That's it; you are now the proud owner of the Melpaca Saddle item in Palworld!

Crafting a Pal Gear Workbench

If you don't have a Pal Gear Workbench yet, you can unlock it with two Technology Points via the Tech Tree at level 6 or above. Then, craft it using the following resources:

  • x10 Paldium Fragments
  • x30 Wood
  • x2 Cloth

You'll also need to unlock Cloth by spending one Technology Point, then create some using Fibre from trees!

You can easily find Melpacas in Palworld in various locations across the gigantic map. We found our first few Melpacas to capture close the the starting area. In the image above, we showcase where we found Melpaca spawns.

How To Ride Melpaca as Mount in Palworld

Riding a Melpaca is a simple process once you've crafted the Melpaca Saddle. Simply select the Melpaca Saddle from your inventory and give it to the Melpaca you want to ride. 

From here, summon the Melpaca and walk up to it. Then press and hold down the X button (on Xbox) to mount it. From here, ride to your heart's content. To dismount, hold the X button again.

For those who don't know what Palworld is, check out the open-world crafting/survival title's Early Access release trailer below.

The Melpaca is just one of the many mounts you can ride in Palworld. Remember, there are also flying mounts out there for Pal Tamers to discover. However, the Melpaca should be one of the first mountable Pals you encounter, so craft that Melpaca's Saddle item as soon as possible.
