Hardened Steel is one of the greatest resources one can have in Conan Exiles. With it, you can craft a wide range of weapons, armor, building tools, and other handy items as you journey through the Exiled Lands. Unfortunately, this material is incredibly difficult to find, let alone make on your own.

In this guide, we will be looking at how to make Hardened Steel in Conan Exiles.

  1. Throw your Ironstone into the Furnace, thus creating Iron Bars.
  2. Place the Tar and Brimstone into the Cauldron, which will produce Steelfire.
  3. Mix the Steelfire with the Iron Bars at the Furnace to form Steel Bars.
  4. Place the Black Ice inside of the Furnace with the Steel Bars.
