Altars are a type of building structure in Conan Exiles. They are part of the Religion system and provide unique items and abilities.

Knowledge granted by following the other gods will grant certain advantages. Depending on the chosen religion, an altar can be built as soon as possible, providing unique recipes.

Favor (Manifestation of Zeal) is gained in various ways, usually by crafting recipes with the religion's corresponding sacrifice. Each altar provides a special tool recipe that can be used to harvest human bodies after their defeat for said sacrifice.

Derketo - Use Icon skinning dagger derketo Derketo's Kiss to harvest Icon sliver of the unfulfilled Sliver of the Unfulfilled.
Jhebbal Sag - Use Icon skinning dagger JhebbalSag Blood Letter to harvest Icon jhebbal sag blood Sacred Blood.

  • Each religion has three tiers of altars, to upgrade them, the knowledge for each tier is required, which unlocks an upgrade-recipe, demanding resources, among them a certain amount of favor. Each tier unlocks additional Recipes, for items such as Weapons or Food.
  • Most altars fit well on a 5x5 foundation base and require a minimum of 12 meters (about 8 foundations) distance between them.
  • Not every member of a clan needs to have spent knowledge points learning the religious recipes, since just one player can craft the religious implements and items for everyone in the clan.[1]
  • Once an altar has been upgraded to tier 3, the altar's name and icon will appear on the map and can be seen by all players on the server, clearly broadcasting the T3 altar and location.
  • With a tier 3 altar and an archpriest, it is possible to summon an Avatar of the corresponding god by crafting their True Name.[2]

Avatar warning
  • Crafting an avatar from any of the Altars will destroy the Altar and all of its contents, including the Priest.
  • Any Manifestation of Zeal remaining will be in a loot bag but cannot be picked up.
