Conan Exiles

Steel Bar Location and Uses - Conan Exiles

Jessica Dillon

Steel Bars are a resource that you will be using a lot when making mid-range weapons, buildings, and armor. As this is a resource you will be using to move your items up to the next level of sturdiness and strength, you will need to acquire a lot of Steel Bars. This is easier said than done in the early hours of the game, as just making Steel Bars takes four different ingredients and three different crafting benches.

Steel Bars are made from a slightly complex crafting process.

How to Make Steel Bars in Conan Exiles

Steel Bars are made by using Steelfire and Iron Bars in the "Furnace" iconFurnace. The tricky part is that you first must make Steelfire, which requires x1 Brimstone and x1 Tar to be placed in the Firebowl Cauldron. "Brimstone" iconBrimstone mostly spawns in caves, and "Tar" iconTar is a byproduct from using the Tannery to make "Hide" iconHide. You will need one "Steelfire" iconSteelfire and five "Iron Bar" iconIron Bars to make a single Steel Bar. For the most part, this process will be slow until you are strong enough to collect a large amount of "Ironstone" iconIronstone and can quickly produce Tar. This will likely require you to build a Fluid Press.

What Are Steel Bars Used for in Conan Exiles?

"Steel Bar" iconSteel Bars are a versatile resource that is used to make a long list of items. Every weapon, shield, and tool has a steel version for you to make. It’s also part of several armor sets like the Aesir set, Aquilonian set, Vanir set, and the Intricate Spite set. On top of this, you will need to combine Steel Bars with "Obsidian" iconObsidian to create "Composite Obsidian" iconComposite Obsidian. "Hardened Steel Bar" iconHardened Steel Bar is also made using Steel Bars and "Black Ice" iconBlack Ice. The table below lists the other items that you can make with Steel Bars.
