One of the most valuable metals in the late-game of Conan Exiles is star metal. In our guide, we’ll show you how to find it and what you need to use it to make ingots for weapons and armor.
What it’s about: Along with iron, steel and hardened steel, star metal is one of the best materials for making weapons or armor. As the name suggests, it is not an earthly metal, but comes from outer space. It lands in the world of Conan Exiles in the form of meteorites.

Star Metal Ore Location
As already mentioned, star metal is not a normal material that you can simply find and mine. First, you have to find meteorites that contain the valuable ore.
This is where you find the metal: The meteorites fall from the sky at certain long intervals and hit with a loud explosion. Be warned, though, because the burning rocks can destroy structures and kill creatures.
The meteorites fall from the sky mainly in the west of the Snow biome north of the Hill of the Dead. A meteor shower occurs at irregular intervals and 5 to 15 pieces of rock fall to earth.
How to extract Star Metal Ore: After the hot rocks hit the earth, you can’t mine them directly. You need something explosive first because the shell has to be blasted away first. In addition, the core can only be removed with a steel pickaxe. Ways to get rid of the shell are as follows:
- Explosive Arrows
- Demon Fire Orbs
- Explosive Traps
- Explosive Jars
Personal Tip: Sometimes the shells are bent and do not crack the first time. To make it easier, you can use Oil Arrows or Grease Orbs.
