Star Metal is an extremely rare resource to find in Conan Exiles, and this you need later in the game to craft armor and weapons. In this guide, we show you the locations and the benefits of Star Metal.
This rare item can be easily unnoticed, because this resource hardly differs at first glance from iron deposits. In fact, you identify it on the smoke that comes from the stone. On the following map we have marked you possible spawn locations of star metal.
To extract star metal you have to break the hard shell off the core but to do that you should unlock explosive jar in the talents. This goes from level 35 and costs you in the production of an earthenware jug, 1x dragon powder and 10x tar.
In case, if you don’t have explosive jar yet, or if that's too expensive for you then you can just throw a handful of tar balls onto the steaming stone and then throw a ball of fire at it. That should be enough to melt the hard shell. Then you can break down the bright blue stone. For a star metal bar you need 2x star metal ore, 1x sulfur and 1x black ice.
Star Metal: Best use
Even though the Star Metal is rare, you can get a fair amount of it from the stones. With good tools, you can even get partially over 100x star metal from a stone.
Nevertheless, the resource remains scarce and it must be well considered, for which one can use the metal. In the smithy you have a whole lot of armor and weapons that you can craft from the metal. So invest in the weapons you're most likely to fight with. If you have upgraded an altar to the third level, you can also craft special weapons of the deities that will make you even stronger: Derketo (sword), Mitra (Spear), Set: Snakebite (Daggers), Ymir (ax), Yog (Mace)
For the weapons you need 20 star metal bars, but the effort is definitely worth it, because they share well and look epic.
