How to butcher Pals in Palworld

There’s no shortage of morally grey things you can do in Palworld. From running your own sweatshop of Pals gathering resources to capturing and selling humans to Black Marketeers, almost nothing seems to be off the table in this game. While you usually want to build up a large collection of Pals to either help run your bases or help you in battle, sometimes you might just want to strip one of any value it might have at the cost of its life. This is a great, if not morbid, way to gather some extra items off a Pal you may not have much use for. In a sentence we never thought we’d say, here’s how you can butcher your Pals in Palworld.

Butchering Pals isn’t something you can do with any old weapon in Palworld. No, you need a very special butchering tool, in this case, the Meat Cleaver. You can unlock this weapon in the Technology Tree once you hit level 12 and craft it with 5 Ingots, 20 Wood, and 5 Stone. Once your instrument is ready, you next need to prepare your victim.

Bring out the Pal you wish to harvest and, with the cleaver equipped, activate the command wheel and choose the Butcher option. This will, well, butcher said Pal, and give you whatever items it would normally drop. Do be aware that chopping up Pals is illegal, and if you do so while around an NPC, you could get yourself a bounty.

What is dragonsplague in Dragon’s Dogma 2 and how is it cured?
A dragon roars in Dragon's Dogma 2.

Dragon's Dogma 2 likes to keep many of its mechanics and systems a secret until you discover them. You will learn quickly that you can't fast travel around the map freely, but there's one mechanic that is far more detrimental to your game. This is called dragonsplague and it is a disease that can't be cured with a simple tonic. In fact, you may not even realize if you have it in your game because it isn't something that affects your character at all; instead, it affects your Pawns. Failing to recognize you have dragonsplague and deal with it in a timely manner can ruin your entire playthrough if you're not careful. To avoid such a catastrophe, here are all the details about this cruel disease.
What is dragonsplague?

Dragonsplague is a special kind of disease that Pawns can contract seemingly by interacting with either Drakes or Dragons. That part isn't fully clear yet, however, we do know that Pawns with dragonsplague can spread the disease to other Pawns. Since Pawns are able to pass between worlds to join other players, you are never fully safe from being infected if you're playing online. Unlike a real sickness, though, dragonsplague actually transfers between Pawns rather than spreads, meaning it won't fully run rampant through the game.

Once you take this quest from Brant, a waypoint will be put on your map far to the east. Follow the general direction until you enter the zone where you need to start exploring to actually find it. If you follow the main road, you will find it blocked by a massive pile of boulders, forcing you to take a side path through the forest.
