How to Get Armor Reduction Kit & What it Does in Conan Exiles
Conan Exiles is an open-world survival action game that challenges players to survive in a barren and deadly wasteland filled with nasty critters and prehistoric beasts. It is set in the world of Conan the Barbarian, with the character rescuing the player at the start of the game. There’s extensive customization options on offer, with players able to build their very own barbarian, and equip them with custom outfits and weapons. There’s a wide breadth of armor to choose from in Conan Exiles, from simple bone and feather sets to heavy plate armor.
Much of the armor in the game contains extra aesthetic flourishes which, while looking pretty cool, do add to the overall weight of the set. With players only able to hold a set amount of stuff, keeping armor as light as possible is key. One way to shave off some of the weight from an armor set is to use an Armor Reduction Kit. It makes the set lighter, while still retaining the armor’s protective properties. They’re fairly rare items in the game, but there are a couple of ways to get them.
The first, and easiest way is to loot fallen enemies and scavenge areas you visit. You’ll accumulate a few while naturally playing the game, but if you want to stock up, you can also craft Armor Reduction Kits. To do so, go to your Armorer’s Bench, and select the Armor Reduction Kit crafting option. You’ll need plant fiber and twine, and will earn 135 experience points per kit.
Once you’ve crafted a few kits, you can use them to drop significant weight from armor sets. Using one on a heavy armor set will drop the weight down to match that of a medium one, though all of the defensive stats will remain. For more on Conan Exiles, be sure to visit our wiki guide.
