Silk and layered silk are very important resources in Conan Exiles. You need these spuns for a lot of different crafts. In our guide, we will show you, how to get a big chunk of silk easily and how to craft layered silk.
Silk is a strong, light thread spun from gossamer. Without silk and layered silk, your life in Conan Exiles will be pretty hard. Plenty of item crafts need either silk or layered silk to work, so for example you need:
- 12 x layered silk, 38 x thick hide, 1 x perfected light chest padding, and 1 x perfected light padding for the Exceptional Relic Hunter Shirt
- 15 x layered silk, 15 x Eldarium, 1 x perfected light padding, and 1 x perfected light legging lining for the Flawless Marksman’s Pants
- 10 x layered silk, 40 x alchemical base, 1 x heart of a hero, and 3 x fragment of power for Bindings of the Dead.
So as you see, silk and layered silk are not only necessary for some single Items or crafts. You will need these two resources over and over again until you stop playing Conan Exiles.
How to craft silk and layered silk in Conan Exiles
Foremost, you require a lot of gossamer. This is the grounding for a sufficient pool of silk and layered silk. The most efficient way to farm a big chunk of gossamer is by killing spiders and collecting their eggs.
Important to know: For your fights against the spiders and for collecting of gossamer, you should definitely use a sickle, because you get a bonus from it. Using a sickle will give you also the opportunity to harvest gossamer from the following creatures:
- brown, green, and red spiders
- black, blue, green, red, and yellow widows
- demon spider
- redmouth spider
- giant spider
The best places to farm gossamer are in the northern parts of the land. There you can find gigantic spiders and their nests. Of course, it’s not a very safe location for barbarians, so make sure that you have enough aloe-extracts in your inventory to restore your health points during fights. And trust me: you will need your aloe-extracts.
A very nice side effect, while farming gossamer, is, that spiders always drop another very essential resource, which is needed for lots of crafts like hardened bricks: ichor.
As soon as you have enough gossamer, you can start to craft silk. For 1 x silk, you require 2 x gossamer and for 1 x layered silk you need 4 x silk and 2 x alchemical base. You can craft both kinds of silk at the tannery. Normal silk can also be hand-crafted.
