How To Use The Purple Lotus Orb In Conan Exiles
With the Thrall Taker Journey and the Purple Lotus Orb recipe, you can access the Alchemist’s Bench to begin crafting the item. To make one Purple Lotus Orb requires one Water Orb and three Black Lotus Flowers, but this could change at launch to the Purple Lotus Flower and hit the “Take All” button to start the Crafting Queue.
This item can be added to your inventory and eventually equipped before this item can be used. The Purple Lotus Orb in Conan Exiles is a concussive item that, when thrown on the ground, disperses a purple-hued smoke that can knock out enemies and Thralls, inflicting Concussive Damage to them.
This can be useful to knock out enemies without engaging in combat, but only one orb should be effective enough to render them unconscious before escaping or using another orb. For example, if you're engaged in combat with an enemy and use the Purple Lotus Orb, their Consciousness meter will only start refilling as you can wait for the first orb to work itself before using another.
Likewise, when in combat with an enemy and you’ve thrown out a Purple Lotus Orb, you can deal increased damage using a weapon that deals Concussive Damage. For the orb to be highly effective, the enemy must be positioned in the center of the smoke as it’s the strongest.
