The Truncheon in Conan Exiles is a club-like weapon intended to stun or incapacitate enemies when struck but not kill them. This weapon is low-grade and most commonly used amongst guards and criminals to knock out their adversaries, dealing substantial Concussive Damage.
Nevertheless, learning how to craft the Truncheon in Conan Exiles is one of the requirements needed for the Thrall take Journey, which upon completion, awards you the Purple Lotus Orb. We explain in this guide how to get the Truncheon used to stun enemies in Conan Exiles.
How To Get The Truncheon Weapon In Conan Exiles
The Truncheon is a Strength-based weapon that deals 15 points of Light Concussive Damage and 20 points of Heavy Concussive Damage. The only caveat is that the weapon has poor durability, meaning it's more likely to be destroyed or need constant repairing unless you’ve upgraded the Truncheon.
To unlock the blueprint for the Truncheon in Conan Exiles, you’ll need to have built the Wheel of Pain, for which you can get the handcrafted Truncheon blueprint. From there, using the Wheel of Pain, you can craft the weapon requiring five Branches, five Plant Fibers, and eight Leather pieces to get this weapon and 36 XP for your efforts.
This weapon is crucial in the Thrall Taker Journey as one of the requirements is to craft a Truncheon. Additionally, you must equip the weapon and use it against a Fighter or Archer enemy by stunning them before placing them on the Wheel of Pain to convert to a Thrall.
While the handcrafted Truncheon may be of little use for your character, they are effective when you give them to your Thralls in Conan Exiles to defend or attack enemies. The Truncheon can be enhanced to improve its Concussive Damage by crafting the following Truncheon weapons:
- Iron Truncheon
- Steel Truncheon
- Reinforced Steel Truncheon
- Szeth’s Truncheon
- Heavy-weight Truncheon
- Lovetap and plenty more
Likewise, you can place various fittings to the Truncheon to increase its Light and Heavy Concussive Damage, like the Simple Blunted Weapon, Blunted Weapon, or Advanced Blunted Weapon Fittings. It can be repaired using four Plant Fibers and six Leather pieces; if destroyed, you’ll gain one Plant Fiber and two Leather pieces.
And that completes this guide on crafting the Truncheon in Conan Exiles. The Conan Exiles Age of Sorcery Chapter 3 update arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on 14th March 2023.
