Northwest of the Mounds of the Dead

One of the best places to find iron in Conan Exiles is to the northwest of the Mounds of the Dead in the resource-rich Dirgewood. Not only will you find an abundance of iron nodes, but you’ll also be able to get hold of some shroom amantia, coal, and wood. Just keep an eye out for the dangerous Wights.
The east to the capital is also a good place to find some iron spawn locations, but the best place is to the northwest, as you can see from the picture above. 

The Mounds of the Dead is definitely a great spot to set up camp, not only is there plenty of iron and stone, but you’ll also be able to get steel and hardened steel from the Cimmerians. The area also has some of the best scenery in the entire game, despite it being a bit dark and gloomy. 

The Tower of Bats

The Tower of Bats is easily one of the best places to find iron in Conan Exiles as it has one of the highest concentrations of the resource in the entire map. Another benefit is that it is located very close to ‘noob river’ if you’re new to the game and looking for iron early on, though I wouldn’t recommend setting up home here as there are tons of better spots. 

You’ll have to be very careful at the Tower of Bats, too, as Rocknoses dwell this region and you could easily end up dying if you are caught unprepared. You’ll find most of the iron deposits to the southern area of the tower.

Godsclaw Passage

If you’re a higher levelled Conan Exiles player you’ll want to get your ironstone from Godsclaw Passage. Without a doubt this is the best place to find iron in Conan Exiles. In fact, there’s so much iron that by the time you’ve finished mining the last node in the area, the already mined iron will start to respawn. 

Godsclaw Passage can be found to the west of New Asagarth in the highlands and is a great location for other resources, too, especially stone and wood.  

Descent of Dagon

A lot of people set up their base near the Descent of Dagon, a huge stone structure in the biome jungle to the west to the west of the Forgotten City of Xel-ha. 

The main reason for this is that the hills around the hidden structure are rich in ironstone. What’s more, if you go through The Crevice into the Descent of Dagon, you’ll also find a nice supply of silverstone, too, which is one of the rarest resources in the game. In fact, this is one of only two locations where you’ll find silver, the other being in a mine southeast of Sepermeru.

If you do decide to come here for iron and silver, keep your eye out for panthers as they like to roam this area in great numbers. 

Other Conan Exiles Iron Locations?

Ironstone is not a particularly difficult resource to locate in the Exiled Lands, and you’re likely to find it in multiple locations – especially in mountainous areas and along the river. 

Gathering it can be time consuming, though, if you don’t go to an area of high concentration. That’s why this list should prove useful for those who are making a trip to specifically harvest iron. It’s in these places where you’ll have the most luck.
