In Conan Exiles players can gather resources from their surroundings, using tools or even their bare hands! These resources are needed for crafting everything from buildings to weapons.


Locating ResourcesEdit

Some resources, such as   Wood and   Stone are easy to find - just hit a tree or large boulder respectively with a harvesting tool.

Other resources can be significantly harder to locate, such as   Silverstone,   Obsidian, and   Star Metal Ore.

Resource GatheringEdit

Resources are gathered by striking an object in the world with an appropriate tool. The quantity of resource gathered by each strike is equal to the Harvesting Power of the tool, with a 50% chance of gaining an additional resource. This is multiplied by the Harvest Amount Multiplier server setting for increased resource gathering.

Formula for gathering quantity = ( Harvesting Power + [50% chance of +1] ) x Harvest Amount Multiplier

For example, a   Steel Pick has a harvesting power of 5. When used to strike a large boulder, it will harvest 5 or 6 stone on each strike (5 stone with a 50% chance of an additional stone). If the server was configured with Harvest Amount Multiplier set at x3, then each strike would gather 15 or 18 stone.

Tool Categories - use the correct toolEdit

  • Pick - generally boulders and ore, also trees for bark, resin (northern trees) and bodies for bones.
  • Hatchet - trees for wood, bodies for meat and few hides (if you don't have a cleaver or skinning knife). Empirically, it seems to be the most effective tool for the harvesting of demon blood.
  • Cleaver - meat from bodies, some hide, heads.
  • Sickle - fiber, plants, berries, gossamer (also on spiders bodies).
  • Skinning Knife - hide from bodies, some meat.
