How to use harvesting tolls in Conan Exiles


In Conan Exiles, gathering resources is highly important to survive. The resources are necessary for crafting everything from buildings to weapons. Some resources can be collected using bare hands, but some resources require specific harvesting tools.

In this article, you can learn more about harvesting tools in Conan Exiles.

Why use harvesting tools in Conan Exiles?

Harvesting tools in Conan exiles are used to harvest important resources, which is necessary to build different buildings, produce weapons and overall survival in the game.

The different resources in the game can only be harvesting using specific tolls. Read more about this later in this article.

Where can resources be found?

Some resources are easier to find than others. For example, wood, stone and plant fiber can easily be found and harvested using an appropriate tool. Other resources like obsidian, star metal ore and silverstone are harder to locate.

In order to get your hands on the rarer resources, you might want to consider interacting with a community made resource map. In the resource map, you can filter for specific resources.

Another tip is that the more northwest from your starting location you go, the better resources you can find. However, the downside to this is that the enemies and monsters are harder to beat in the northwest.

Types of harvesting tools in Conan Exiles

There is a long list of harvesting tools in Conan Exiles. The tools are split into five overall categories:

  • Hatchets
  • Picks
  • Sickles
  • Cleavers
  • Skinning knifes

Hatchets is a type of axe and is used to harvest wood. In the beginning of the game, you can also use the hatchet on bodies to get meats, until you obtain a cleaver.

Picks are used to harvest materials from boulders and ores. By using picks, you can harvest iron, coal, obsidian, brimstone, crystal and silverstone. You can also harvest bark from trees with a pick.

Sickles are used to harvest plant fibers and berries. Although you can harvest fibers with your bare hands, sickles are more efficient and therefore preferred.

Cleavers are used for meat farming. Although an axe can be used for this as well, cleavers are more efficient and therefore preferred.

Skinning Knifes are used to gather materials from dead bodies, for example hide.

What is harvesting powers?

All harvesting tools in Conan Exiles have a harvesting power. The harvesting power is important, because a higher harvesting power will give you more materials, when you harvest.

The harvesting power goes from 0 to 8. For example, bare hands have a harvest power of 0, a steel pick has harvest power of 5 and an obsidian pick has harvest power of 8.

The following formula can tell you how many resources you will get using a specific harvesting toll in Conan Exiles: Harvesting power + (50% chance of +1) x Harvest Amount Multiplier.

For example, a steel pick has a harvesting power of 5, and will therefore harvest 5 or 6 stone on each strike. That is 5 stone with a 50% chance of an additional stone. If the server was configured with Harvest Amount Multiplier set at x3, each strike would harvest 15 or 18 stone.

Harvest everything you can!

As you will learn quickly, everything is expensive to build in Conan Exiles. Therefore, a great tip is to gather as much as possible in the beginning of the game. You will need it! You can store your gathered resources in chests.

In the beginning of the game, you will need a lot of basic materials like wood and stone to build with. However, later in the game you will also need these basic materials again for different recipes.
