How to Summon a Zombie in Conan Exiles
In order to turn one of your companions into an undead, there are some basic requirements to consider and items necessary, some of which you will get later in the game. In the following steps, we’ll show you what you need for resurrection and how you can do it.
Die Voraussetzungen: Als Erstes solltest du dich generell mit dem Thema Magie vertraut machen. Um erste Zaubersprüche freizuschalten, musst du das Buch von Kurak finden. Dabei handelt es sich um das grundlegende Zauberbuch, in dem du neue Zauber hinzufügen kannst.
The Prerequisites: First, you should familiarize yourself with magic in general. To unlock your first spells, you’ll need to find the Book of Kurak. This is the basic spell book, in which you can add new spells.
In the next step, you have to build a thaumaturgy bench. You will unlock it only after you have found the book. Put the book of Kurak into the table. Now you have the possibility to add more spells to the book. Once you get the book to level 8, you unlock the crucial ability called Raise Dead. Additionally, you now have the opportunity to build the Shallow Grave.
The Summoning: To convert a thrall, you must build the previously unlocked Shallow Grave and place it on a flat spot. Next, you need to knock a companion unconscious and place it in the grave. Note, however, that you can’t turn every thrall. Only suitable for zombies are:
Once you have placed your companion in the grave, you can stand in front of it and resurrect him as an undead. The whole thing is accompanied by a small animation and after a short time a zombie rises out of the grave, which will follow you. Now you can use it like other companions.

This is what you have to keep in mind for your undead in Conan Exiles
Zombies are mainly useful for combat, but they come with a few limitations here. Since they are will-less undead with limited brain capacity, you can’t put weapons or armor on them. The zombies fight exclusively with their hands.
The undead spawn directly at level 20 when they are summoned. Also, the zombies only eat raw or rotten meat, such as human flesh.
