Conan Exiles is an open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian. One aspect of the game that can add a lot of character and utility to your experience is the ability to tame and train various creatures as pets. In Conan Exiles, you can get pets by taming wild animals or purchasing them from NPC pet vendors. In this blog, we’ll go over the steps you’ll need to take to get pets in Conan Exiles
1. Find a wild animal you want to tame
To find a wild animal you want to tame in Conan Exiles, you will need to explore the world and look for animals roaming around. Some animals, such as wolves and hyenas, can be found in different biomes throughout the world, while others, such as elephants, are rare and can only be found in certain locations.
You can use your minimap to help locate animals, as they will appear as small dots on the map. You can also use your “Listen” ability to detect nearby animals by pressing the “C” key (by default). This will allow you to hear the sounds of animals and locate them more easily.
Once you have found a wild animal you want to tame, you will need to approach it and knock it unconscious using a truncheon or other blunt weapon. Alternatively, you can use tranquilizer arrows or darts, which can be crafted at the forge. Once the animal is unconscious, you can then start the taming process by feeding it raw meat or other food items.
2. Knock out the animal
To knock out an animal in Conan Exiles, you will need to approach the animal and attack it using a truncheon or other blunt weapon. A truncheon can be crafted at the forge using wood and metal, or you can find one as loot in the world.
Alternatively, you can use tranquilizer arrows or darts to knock out the animal. These can be crafted at the forge using wood, feathers, and narcotic plants. To use tranquilizer arrows or darts, you will need a bow or a crossbow and a quiver to hold the arrows or darts.
When attacking the animal, it’s important to be mindful of its level and damage output. Higher-level animals will be more difficult to knock out and may require more hits to become unconscious. It’s also a good idea to have some healing items on hand, in case the animal manages to injure you during the process.
3. Feed the animal
To feed an animal in Conan Exiles, you will need to approach the unconscious animal and use the “Interact” button to give it raw meat or other food items. Raw meat can be obtained by killing and butchering animals, or by cooking raw meat at a campfire. Other food items that can be used to feed animals include cooked meat, berries, and vegetables.
It’s important to note that not all food items will be suitable for all animals. Some animals may only accept certain types of food, while others may refuse to eat certain items. You can try different food items to see which ones the animal will accept.
Once you have fed the animal, the taming process will begin. The taming process takes time, and the animal will need to be fed periodically to keep it from waking up. You can check the taming progress by looking at the taming bar on the animal’s HUD.
Once the taming process is complete, the animal will become tamed and will follow you around. You can then train the animal to perform different tasks, such as attacking enemies or carrying items, using the “Command” button.
4. Wait for the taming process to complete
The taming process in Conan Exiles takes time and requires patience. Once you have started the taming process by feeding a wild animal raw meat or other food items, you will need to wait for the taming bar on the animal’s HUD to fill up completely.
The taming process can take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours, depending on the type of animal you are taming and your character’s taming skill level.
During the taming process, the animal will need to be fed periodically to keep it from waking up. You can check the taming progress by looking at the taming bar on the animal’s HUD. When the taming bar is full, the animal will be tamed and will follow you around.
It’s important to note that the taming process can be interrupted by various factors, such as the animal waking up or being attacked by enemies. If the taming process is interrupted, you will need to start over by knocking the animal unconscious and feeding it again.
Once the taming process is complete, your pet will become tamed and will follow you around. You can then use the “Command” button to train your pet to perform different tasks, such as attacking enemies or carrying items.
5. Train your pet
Once you have tamed a pet in Conan Exiles, you can train it to perform different tasks by using the “Command” button. To access the command menu, approach your pet and press the “F” key (by default). This will bring up a list of commands you can use to train your pet.
Here are some examples of tasks you can train your pet to do:
1. Attack enemies: You can train your pet to attack enemies by selecting the “Attack”
command from the command menu. Your pet will then attack any enemies it encounters.
2. Follow you: You can train your pet to follow you by selecting the “Follow” command
from the command menu. Your pet will then follow you wherever you go.
3. Stay: You can train your pet to stay in a specific location by selecting the “Stay”
command from the command menu. Your pet will then remain in that location until you
give it another command.
4. Fetch: You can train your pet to fetch items for you by selecting the “Fetch” command
from the command menu and then pointing at the item you want your pet to pick up. Your
pet will then pick up the item and bring it back to you.
Some pets, such as elephants and camels, have their own unique abilities that can be trained. For example, elephants can be trained to carry structures and items, while camels can be trained to carry water and other supplies.
