Conan Exiles Ultimate Necromancer Build: Best Attributes, Armor, Skills, More

A power shift has descended on The Exiled Lands as corrupted sorcerers have overtaken this region, influencing their followers and unleashing destructive powers on those who defy them. As the undead walk The Exiled lands once more, players can learn to master this corrupted power in becoming the Ultimate Necromancer.

We have previously explored a Sorcery build, but if you desire destructive powers, you can learn how to get the Ultimate Necromancer in Conan Exiles. With that being said, we’ve detailed the comprehensive guide on the best Ultimate Necromancer build, including Attributes, perks, armor, weapons, and more for Conan Exiles: Age of Sorcery.

Best Ultimate Necromancer Build In Conan Exiles Age Of Sorcery

This Necromancer build is founded upon three crucial features: sorcery, corruption, and undead followers. The corruption will be acquired mainly from your Attributes, allowing you to gain corrupted followers you can use in combat.

As you’ll be utilizing a hybrid of physical and sorcery damage to enemies, Health and Stamina regeneration is a huge priority, especially for your followers, it could leave you vulnerable should they perish early. Adding various buffs and upgrades to increase Health damage to enemies further while armor and weapon bonuses can grant you unique effects, including reduced damage output and movement speed.

Conan Exiles Ultimate Necromancer Build: Best Attributes, Stats & Perks

This build is one of the variations of a Sorcerer build but with slight differences, namely increased corrupted Attributes. These corruptions will influence the Strength and Authority Attributes, which grant you increased damage dealt to enemies and significantly reduce their damage output.

Lastly, Health and Stamina regeneration will be vital in ensuring that you and your Fighter Thralls survive battles longer, and having a few consumable buffs will supplement this. Let’s take a look at all the Attributes needed for the Ultimate Necromancer build, including all the stats and which perks to unlock:

  • Strength: 20 (Max and corrupted)
  • Agility: 0
  • Vitality: 10
  • Authority: 10 / 5 corrupted
  • Grit: 10
  • Expertise: 10

Choosing the Strength Attribute determines the damage dealt by Strength-based weapons and increases your load. Additionally, you’ll gain bonuses for increased armor and damage under different conditions, but you’ll max out this and corrupt to gain all available perks for this build.

  • Scourge: You will deal bonus damage which scales with Corrupted Strength.
  • Mule Kick: Your kicks will push back enemies before knocking them down.
  • Wrack: All blows from your strikes will subdue your enemies and reduces their damage output.
  • Desecrate: Provided a chance to inflict damage which summons a wave of corruption from the earth that strikes down enemies and causes damage.


The Vitality attribute primarily deals with your Health or HP, which you’ll max out to gain the various perks for this build. You’ll need as much HP regeneration as possible, so you’ll be spending much of your Attribute points in Vitality.

  • Fierce Vitality: You will gain passive health regeneration.
  • Fast Healer: Healing effects will give you 50% increased healing.


This attribute determines the damage your followers deal and the Concussive Damage you inflict. For this attribute, you’ll max it out to get the War Party Perk; however, you’ll need to have the Frenzy and Flesh Bond Perks corrupted but choose the latter as the other in Conan Exiles.

  • Frenzy: When in combat, any damage dealt will see your followers enter a Frenzied state which they deal 3% more damage for every corrupted Charisma Attribute.
  • Commanding Presence: All active followers will be inspired by your battling abilities, which have their HP restored when dealing damage while engaged in battle.


The Grit attribute will influence your Stamina pool's size and directly affect the armor equipped. As HP and Stamina will be a massive issue with this build due to the Armor weight, you’ll need to get the perks to help you regain that Stamina.

  • Tenacity: Your armor is increased by 40 and your Stamina by 20.
  • Endurance: Stamina regenerates 25% faster.


The final Attribute category deals with the encumbrance, how much load or weight you can carry which armor, weapons, and tools can contribute. This will affect your Stamina as the heavier the load, the more Stamina will be used to perform actions like dashing, running, and gathering resources.

  • Survivalist: All tools can lose their Durability 50% faster while hunger and thirst decrease 33% slower
  • Efficient Harvest: The last hit landed on a node during harvesting awards you double resources.

Any Light Armor armor sets and pieces should work well with this Necromancer build; however, you’ll want armor that scales with Strength, Vitality, and Authority. The Voidforged Dragonhide set grants you a wide range of bonuses for every piece from Health to Strength Weapon Damage, as we’ve listed below:

  • Voidforged Dragonhide Hood: Health +28
  • Voidforged Dragonhide Tunic: 8% Strength Weapon Damage
  • Voidforged Dragonhide Bracers: Health +48
  • Voidforged Dragonhide Kilt: Stamina +12
  • Voidforged Dragonhide Boots: Health +28

This sees you gaining an overall bonus of 104 Health, which with your Vitality perks, you’ll have no issue constantly gaining Health, especially when in combat. Additionally, you can apply the Bulked Plating upgrade to the hood, increasing its Armor Value and weight but not reducing its Durability.

A few buffs can be incorporated into this build, like the Purified Flesh, which grants you the Favor of Yog status effects, providing a Health bonus of +40 and +14 bonus Stamina for ten minutes. The Elixir of Freedom is another buff that can be used, which boosts your max Stamina by +21 for one hour, and you can give your Resurrected Corpse followers the Putrid Flesh and the Elixir of Might.

Putrid Flesh grants them a small Health bonus which scales well with the Commanding Presence perk, and Elixir of Might boosts their Strength Weapon Damage by 15%. For which weapons to equip with this build, a Strength-based weapon like The Predatory Blade with a Health damage of 102 and 21% Armor Penetration will be your best option.

You can opt for an Agility weapon such as bows and katanas, but if you don’t wish to engage in close-quarters combat, then a bow like the Abyssal Bow will attack enemies at long range. You can also apply the Master Weapon Fitting upgrade, which increases the weapon’s Armor Penetration and Melee or Bow Damage by +5 but at the cost of reduced Durability by half.

Lastly, you can have Herbal Tea, Concentrated Aloe Extract, and Infused Wraps for fast Stamina and Health regeneration and removes the Bleeding effects sustained. Don’t forget to have the Burlap, Cloth, and Leather Pouches, as you’ll be casting various sorceries and will contribute to your overall weight value.
