Building is one of the primary parts of Conan Exiles. By chopping down trees for wood and mining stone and other precious resources, you can craft the requirements to build massive multi-leveled structures composed of complex or simple snap-linked parts, from foundations to including walls, ceilings, windows, doors, pillars, gates, among many other types.

Structures you build have a load system, if you build out of the range of your foundation you will need to reinforce it to continue building, so reinforcing your buildings at the foundation is key. You can also place signs and other furniture items as you progress in levels and upgrade your recipes. Shelter is key to reducing the extremes of the sandstorm and provides security for yourself and to protect your stash. Band together with other players to build entire settlements to withstand fierce invasions!

You can rotate building props by scrolling up or down with the mouse wheel while in placement mode. This allows you to switch through all of the available snap points.

Basics[edit | edit source]

  • Ownership system with foundations and buildings allow for a radius of about 100 meters claim. If you are a part of a Clan with the owner of any placed foundations, you will be able to build on their foundations. If not you will not be able to place within 100 meters of another player's foundations.
  • Buildings once placed cannot be moved, but they can be manually destroyed and will give back some of the build requirement in items. There are no building width limit, but there is a limit to how high you can go.
  • Walls can be placed everywhere. Walls on buildings need to be connected to a foundation.
  • Foundations will prevent the re-spawning of Creatures and Resources. Additionally, buildings use a support system that needs to be supported by columns or being connected in some way to a foundation.
  • Equipping a Repair Hammer will show you the quality of your buildings, and will give you a chance to see the materials needed to fix. You can craft a Repair Hammer with your first building.
  • Building close to a Thrall camp will stop the inhabitants spawning. Therefore recent updates to the game have prevented building too close to these camps.

Building tiers[edit | edit source]


Buildings have 3 different Tiers of building supplies and materials.

Tier 1 Buildings - Sandstone (Stone and Wood) - Steel Weapons, explosives, or orbs to destroy. Sandstone basic building can be unlocked with the Apprentice Stonemason recipe.
Tier 2 Buildings - Stonebrick (Bricks, Shaped Wood, Iron Reinforcement) - Brick buildings are not able to be damaged by weapons and require the use of explosives or orbs to destroy. Bricks building can be unlocked with the Journeyman Stonemason recipe.
Tier 3 Buildings - Reinforced Stone (Hardened Brick, Shaped Wood, Steel Reinforcements)- Steel buildings are not able to be damaged by Weapons and require the use of explosives or orbs to destroy. Unlock with the Master Stonemason recipe.

Decay System[edit | edit source]

  • To prevent the map from being cluttered with buildings from players who have left the server, buildings will decay over time.
  • Connecting more and higher-quality building materials will increase the total available decay timer, up to a maximum. To share in the decay timer, structural pieces must be connected.
  • When a player or clan member who owns a structure gets near it, the decay timer will increase up to the max.
  • Equipping a repair hammer will allow a player to view the remaining decay time on a structure. Tip: players can subtract the current decay time remaining from the maximum decay time to determine how recently the structure's owner has been in the area. If it's at the maximum, the player is home!
  • Placing an explosive jar on a non-owned structure or destroying part of it will increase the decay timer to the maximum.
  • After the decay timer has elapsed, a 24-hour grace period will begin (decay will read 0:00).
  • After a structure has decayed, any player may activate it and select "demolish" to destroy the structure for 24 hours. After 24 hours, the structure will disappear.
