How to Make Hardened Steel in Conan Exiles: A Guide for Beginners

In Conan Exiles, hardened steel is an important resource that you will need to create better weapons and armor. It can be difficult to find early on in the game, so we have put together this guide to help beginners learn how to make hardened steel.

To make hardened steel, you will need to combine the following ingredients in a furnace:

  • 1x Steel Bar
  • 1x Black Ice
  • Coal

First, you need to get the Steel Bars. These can drop from enemies in Conan Exiles, but the easiest way is to make them yourself. First use Bark (From trees) and Hides (From Animals) to use Thick Leather. You will get Tar as a byproduct. Now combine the Tar and Brimstone to craft Steelfire. Combine the Steelfire with Iron Bars to make Steel Bars.

Black Ice can be farmed in the north around the volcano, at The Temple of Frost, both inside and outside the dungeon. Here you will need to equip some gear to protect you from the cold environment.
