How To Make The Gruel Soup In Conan Exiles?

Gruel is a consumable item you can make which can provide enough nourishment for the average traveler. Eating this plant-based porridge can recover nine points of Hunger and four points of Thirst with a Health regeneration of 1HP every three seconds.

While it doesn’t weigh much in your inventory, it can expire if you keep it too long, so it's advisable to consume it immediately. Gruel will take around 80 minutes to expire, becoming Spoiled Gruel in your inventory.

However, you can get better versions of Gruel, namely Enhanced and Flavored Gruel, which need additional ingredients. This item is one of the steps required for the Thrall Taker Journey, which you need to either buy or make Gruel before placing it on the Wheel of Pain, which powers it when creating Thralls.

To make Gruel, you need to find or build a bonfire, campfire, or a large campfire from which you can make Gruel and its many variants. You’ll need five Plant Fibers and a pack of seeds to make standard Gruel, and you can enjoy a warm bowl of porridge.

    • Egg x1
    • Spice x1
  • Flavored Gruel:
