It’s not immediately evident where you find Star Metal in Conan Exiles: Isle of Siptah. The purpose of this tutorial is to locate and then mine this item. This tutorial should help you locate and mine this extremely potent mineral that is used to craft the highest tier gear you can get in Conan Exiles apart from Epics that you farm from skeleton key boxes and other locations.
Technically, you can use any kind of explosive (like Explosive Arrows, Exploding Trap, Demon-fire Orb). I just have found much more success placing and activating Explosive Jars. It’s also relatively cheap to make.
Star metal Location
The ore is located around the center of the Isle of Spitah. After a Maelstrom, there will be comets that come down, leaving behind unmined ore nodes.
The unmined ore appears kind of like the gold ore spread throughout the island. If you’re unsure if it’s the right stuff, simply use your pickaxe or pick to try to mine the mineral. If it doesn’t give you any items, you’re in the right place.
Mining Star Metal
To mine the Star Metal, simply place your Explosive Jar next to the mine, slowly walk up to it and Interact with it using your E keyboard button.
After the explosion, you can mine it using your pick or pickaxe. It requires a Steel (or higher) mining tool.
Warning: BE CAREFUL! If you place an exploding jar on a steep angle and you accidentally bump it, it will roll away before exploding and you’ve just wasted your explosives.
