Conan Exiles Wiki
See also: Altar, Avatar.

Players can choose to worship one or more religions.

A single god is selected at character creation.[1]

List of religions[]


The "God who requires no worship." - Crom watches the world from his mountain top, but does not answer prayers and will receive no worship. If you choose Crom as your god at the start of the game, you will not get the knowledge of an acolyte, so he is the god to choose if you do not wish to get involved in the religion system in Conan Exiles.


The "Goddess of fertility, death, and lust." - Derketo, the Goddess of lust, death and fertility, who is the Whore of Set, and the Sable Queen.

Jhebbal Sag[]

The "God of animals, nature, and savagery", and the lord of all animals and beasts, including men.[2]


The "God of right and justice." - Mitra, chosen god of the Hyborians, purports to be a god of right and justice, but his zealous followers are consumed with expanding his religion at the detriment of all others. Mitra’s followers are given the ability to create sacred Statues, Clothing, Healing Consumables and Weapons – including the sacred symbol of the Phoenix.


The "God of serpents and sacrifice." - Set, the Old Serpent, glories in the ritual sacrifice of humans atop his bloody altars. Set’s followers are granted powers that align with their god, protection from Poison and the ability to turn Snakes into Arrows.


The "God of snow, storm, and war." - The Nordheim worship Ymir, the Frost Giant, Lord of Storm and War, who lives (according to legend), in Valhalla, his castle far in northern Vanaheim. According to Nordheimr shamans, the souls of warriors who fall in battle go to Valhalla to feast and fight forever. This belief makes Nordheimr warriors terribly fierce in battle, and they often fight with no regard for their own safety.


The "God of cannibals." - Yog, the Lord of Empty Abodes, demands that his followers consume flesh that has been ritually purified. This means the flesh of other humans, and in return, Yog grants his followers by blessing them with Weapons and Armor.


Gain favor with the gods[]

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 is gained in various ways. Each altar provides a special tool recipe that can be used to harvest human bodies after their defeat.

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.
Mitra - Use the Icon mitra ankh staff Mitraen Ankh to harvest Icon lingering essence Lingering Essence.
Set - Use the Icon sacrificial knife Setite Ritual Knife to harvest Icon human heart Human Hearts.
Ymir - Use the Icon black ice 1h axe Hoar-Frost Hatchet to harvest Icon ice shard Ice Shards.
Yog - Use the Icon darfari bone club Yog Cleaver to harvest Icon unblemished meat Unblemished Human Meat.
Zath - Use the Icon zath skinning dagger Zathite Ritual Dagger to harvest Icon jhebbal sag blood Venom-purified blood.

Side Note: While not providing any use to gain favour, Icon zath skinning dagger Zathite Ritual Dagger is also be used to harvest Icon zath cocoon Zathite Bag from spiders and spider-like creatures.

Religion Teachers[]

It costs 50 points to learn an additional religion from inside the Knowledges menu that wasn't learned during character creation. However, most religions can be learned for free if you talk to the correct trainer for the specific religion. For example, if you want to learn the Set religion, then you will need to find the Set Trainer.

All trainers can be found throughout the Exiled Lands. Alternatively, religions can also be learned from religious relics dropped by named priests. Trainers do not exist on the Isle of Siptah, so the only way to learn extra religions there without paying the knowledge cost is to find the relics.

  • The gods are jealous beings and do not allow their respective altars to be placed too close to each other, so it may be necessary to defend a large area when worshipping multiple gods.
  • While the dev team originally said that the Jhebbal Sag would be the final religion planned, the Zath religion was later added with the Isle of Siptah expansion. Additional religions have not been ruled out, though nothing has been confirmed or stated to be in the production pipeline (as of this writing, October 2021).
    • Speculation of other future gods, based on those found on available data files, are Bel god of thieves, and possibly Gullah the Gorilla god (based on gorilla god statues in game, such as the statue of Hanuman, the Ape God, in the oasis newbie area).


  • Crom is often referred to by Conan in the movies Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer.
  • The religion of Set is a major plot point in the film Conan the Barbarian (1982). However, it's usually referred to as a "Snake Cult" and the word Set is only said twice in the movie.
  • "Yog" is Howard's nod to his good friend Lovecraft's work.
