The chewy and smelly secretion is an essential tool for a lot of crafts. In our guide for Conan Exiles, we show you, how to get a big chunk of ichor very easily. Besides this, we demonstrate the most important application.
The potential of ichor is very very high. There are so many things in Conan Exile, which require more or less ichor, that you should always try to craft some ichor on the side. But which way is the most efficient and what can you do with ichor? We will show you!
How to get ichor in Conan Exiles
#1Kill and utilize wild beasts
The fastest way to get some ichor might be to hunt down some of the big wild animals. Of course, this is also a very dangerous way, because the rule of thumb is: The bigger the creature you kill, the more ichor you get from it. The best beasts for farming ichor are:
- Sand Reaper
For a successful hunt, you should bring a strong weapon with you. A T3 or T4 fighter might be even better.
“Tip from our author: If you want to know, how and where you can catch thralls, just take a look at our big thrall guide.”
As soon as the beast is slayed, you can harvest the ichor and some other resources from its corpse. The only tool you need is a pickaxe. The better your tool, the more resources you get from the corpses. So a stone pickaxe will give you less ichor than a pickaxe made of star metal.
#2 Taming wild beasts
Instead of killing the animals, you can also try to tame some of them and keep them in your pens. Spiders or Sand Reapers for example have a 10 percent chance to create ichor instead of dung. There is even a 50 percent chance if you can manage to tame a corrupted spider or a Sand Reaper Queen.
This is important: As soon as your animals are adults, you should not let them leave the pens. If they are outside of your pens once, you have no chance to bring them back into it. Another fact by taming these animals is: You always have to feed them to keep them alive. The best food for them is every kind of meat or demon blood.
#3 Using Fluid-Press and bonfire
There are a lot of other possibilities to get ichor, but they are all coming together at one point. It’s all about squeezing pieces of meat, carcasses, or other animal parts into your fluid-press or cooking them with your bonfire. Some examples:
- Cooking 1 piece of abysmal flesh gives you 1 x ichor.
- Squeezing 50 x Putrid Meat gives you 1 x ichor.
- One Carcass of a Shaggai’s Horror will give you 10 x ichor.
- Squeezing limbs, bats, harpy eagles, demon spiders and lots of other animals will give you ichor as well.
What can you do with ichor in Conan Exiles?
Ichor is needed in every stage of the game. For the most essential applications, you only need an alchemist’s bench and a firebowl cauldron. These are the most important things, ichor is required for:
- Hardened Stone: To build your card room.
- Producing oil: To produce hardened leather.
- Water orbs
- Alchemical base
Of course, there are many many other things, which require ichor. Even if they are not that important, you can do useful stuff with ichor on your stove or your benches. It might be a good idea, to have some ichor-reserve all the time.
