Range attacks in Conan Exiles are the easiest way to deal a ton of damage from a safe location. With the explosive arrows the damage is ridiculously high.
These explosive arrows are insane tools. They are extremely powerful, but very dangerous as well. You might hurt your allies with your shots if you don’t care enough. These explosive projectiles can also detonate by accident. So be careful if you have these powerful bombs with you.
How to craft explosive arrows in Conan Exiles
To craft explosive arrows in Conan Exiles, you need to unlock some feats:
- Carpenter’s Bench
- Steel tools
- Specialist Ammunition III
As you can see, crafting explosive arrows at the very beginning is impossible. The Specialist Ammunition III for example requires level 49 and 5 feat points. Besides these feats, you still need to fulfill many requirements and collect a big chunk of resources. For an amount of ten explosive arrows, you need the following stuff:
- 1 x Ironhead Arrow
- 5 x Tar
- 1 x Dragonpowder
- 4 x Feather
These ingredients might have their own special requirements, such as the ironhead arrow. Therefore you need the same-named feat as well as the feat “Steel Tools”.
No Dragonpowder – no explsosive arrows!
The biggest challenge will be the Dragonpowder. To craft this mighty material, you have to build a Firebowl Cauldron. To build it however, you have to unlock the feat “Iron Tools” and to collect 50 x Iron Bars and 20 x Twine. For the Dragonpowder itself, you still need:
- 2 x Demon Blood
- 10 x Crimstone
- 50 x Crystal
- 100 x Steelfire
So obviously, explosive arrows are pretty expensive. But to be honest, these little mini-bombs are so damn powerful, it is just fair to make them quite costly.
