Conan Exiles Thrall Capturing Guide

This Conan Exiles Thrall Capturing Guide will help players to find all the different types of thralls in the game and guide them through the recruitment process so players have an army of followers in no time.

Conan Exiles Thrall Capturing

Thralls are NPCs which can be captured and then placed in the player’s camp to either craft items or defend it against invasions depending on the type of thrall it is. Players need to be at least level 10 before they can start the process of capturing thralls.

Thrall Capturing Requirements
Besides being level 10, players also need to learn the Thrall Taker skill for 3 skill points which will allow them to craft Truncheons, Fiber Bindings and Lesser Wheel of Pain, all the essential tools required to enslave a thrall. Pretty much every NPC in the world can be captured provided they aren’t named story related characters.

However, each Thrall has a different specialization, for example, someone might be good at archery while another thrall might be a dancer or a craftsman. Players need to make sure they don’t capture all the same types of thralls and their captives should have a diversity to them for various skills.

Breaking Thralls

Once players find the right NPC they want to capture, they need to knock them out with the Truncheon, tie them with Fiber Bindings and then drag the unconscious NPC to their Wheel of Pain. Like any crafting station, players need to add fuel and ingredient to the wheel of pain which in this case happens to be food and the NPC respectively. Keep an eye out on the food in the wheel of pain and make sure it doesn’t run out.

Slowly over time, the wheel of pain will break the thrall and they will finally submit to the player which will allow them to be picked up and placed in the player inventory like every other item. From the inventory, the thrall can be placed on the ground to wherever the player feels like they are needed.

It is best to place fighters such as swordsman and archers near the walls of the player base so they can defend it while dancers, blacksmith, and similar thralls should be near crafting stations so they can build stuff for the player.

Conan Exiles currently has the following Thrall types available:

  • Priests: are required to summon Avatars
  • Fighters: defend the base with melee combat
  • Archers: defend base with ranged attacks from high walls
  • Smiths: craft various items including powerful new equipment
  • Entertainers/Dancers: remove corruption from the player and restore maximum health

Thrall Factions

While players can capture most NPCs in the game, some faction thralls provide better bonuses compared to others and as such have specific locations where they can be found. The Conan Exiles Thrall Capturing guide will cover some of the factions in the game right now while more will be added soon as the game gets updated.

  • Dogs of the Desert: live to the north near mountains
  • Darfari Cannibals: are well-equipped cannibals with primitive weapons. Can be found north of the river
  • The Black Hand: are pirates that can be seen near the landlocked pirate ship on a rock formation and have pretty good weapons
  • Relic Hunters: live to the north west in their city which is very well guarded. Only high level and well equipped players should try to capture these
