In real life, blood is pretty valuable since it’s, y’know, blood. That people need. But in a fantasy setting like Conan Exiles, blood, particularly the blood of powerful monsters, is even more valuable as a magical reagent. Everybody who’s anybody wants that stuff, which means it’s a bull market for an enterprising adventurer like yourself. Here’s how to find and farm Blood Crystals in Conan Exiles.

How to Find and Farm Blood Crystals in Conan Exiles

Blood Crystals are a type of collectible commodity in the third chapter of Conan Exiles’ Age of Sorcery expansion. They’re hardened chunks of the blood of Giant Kings, just pulsating with vital energy. You can’t do anything with them yourself, but they hold immense value to those in the know, and they’re willing to trade some top-shelf goodies for large quantities of ’em.

The primary means of hunting down Blood Crystals is to equip an Arcane Staff, cast Detect Resources, and then just sort of wander aimlessly around the Exiled Lands. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot a red, conical growth underground. If you visit the spot right above that growth, you’ll find Golems and Rocknoses that, when defeated and harvested, will yield a handful of Blood Crystals. It’s a bit of a slog, but you should harvest Blood Crystals in this way until you’ve got 30 of them, after which we can move on to a better method.

Once you’ve got at least 30 Blood Crystals from the normal hunting method, head to Mek-kamoses’s Spire in the Exiled Lands. There’s a teleporter here that you can spend 30 Blood Crystals on to activate, which will warp you into Kurak’s Lair. Fair warning, there are some tough customers in here, so make sure you’ve got the highest defense and DPS gear you can manage.

In this dungeon, you’ll be beset by several waves of monsters, including Golems starting in the second wave. What you need to do is clear out the first wave of monsters as fast as possible, then, when the second wave starts, defeat the Golems as they animate one by one and harvest their bodies to get their Blood Crystals. You need to be systematic and speedy here; if you don’t complete all waves before the timer runs out, a Blood Moon Beast will spawn and kill you instantly. Focus on wiping out every other monster as quickly as possible, then quickly harvest all the resources from the Golems.

With a good pickaxe and proper damage output, you can easily get around 250 Blood Crystals per dungeon run, minus 30 to get back in and go again. Once you’ve got lots of Blood Crystals, you can go trade them for Golem pieces from Master Carver Huang, as well as Ophidian Magi Caches, which contain useful items like Goldstone, Silverstone, Obelisk, Alchemical Bases, and more. As long as you don’t mind a few runs to a gloomy dungeon, it can all be yours without too much effort.
