[Top 10] Conan Exiles Best Armor You Can Have (2024)

Conan Exiles is a game that can be played clothesless! From realistic physics, to the unprecedented sense of freedom that comes with streaking across open deserts and frightening the natives who all try to wear at least a loincloth to battle the elements, it can be quite liberating if you play it this way. I certainly have!

At least until you run face first into a cloud of toxic gas, or step foot into the superheated insides of the volcano or touch a bare toe down on a snowy tundra and it freezes off. Let's take a look at some armor you can don reluctantly to extend your lifespan from reckless exile to hardened survivor.

Champion’s Armor

[Top 10] Conan Exiles Best Armor You Can Have (1)

The Champion's Armor (Shown Above) lives up to it's name with a multitude of amazing buffs and high temperature resistance!

While there are many armors out there that can help you survive, the best ones are the ones that give you extra buffs! The Champion’s Armor is one such armor, not only does it have great cold and heat resistance, but it also gives you a lot of extra fun stuff as well. This earns it a spot on our list of bests.

Champion’s Armor is great for:

  • The Helmet periodically removes bleeding from the wearer and grants a bonus of +5 to your grit stat.
  • The Chestpiece removes poisons periodically and also grants a bonus to your strength weapon damage stat of +3
  • The Gauntlets add another +5 to your grit stat! Which means extra stamina!
  • If you’re not a fan of corruption, the Leggings remove this periodically as well as give you another bonus to your strength weapon damage stat of +3
  • The Boots remove crippling effects periodically and give you another +5 to your grit stat

Champion’s Armor Stats:

  • 73% Damage Reduction
  • Armor Value 1,420
  • Heat Resistance 9
  • Cold Resistance 9

How to get Champion’s Armor:

So you’re convinced this is what you need and you want it you say? Getting this armor isn’t too entirely difficult, but it will take some preparation and commitment. The knowledge is obtained by interacting with a stele in the hallway near the Arena Champion in the Warmaker's Sanctuary. This is a dungeon inside what’s known as Klael’s Stronghold.

Then you’ll need armor scraps which most of the bosses in this sprawling dungeon drop as well as the Champion himself further in the center of it.

GodBreaker Armor

Redeemed Legion Armor
