Ultimate Corrupted Vs. Uncorrupted Attribute Guide in Conan Exiles

In the Age of Sorcery, the total number of Attribute Points you can Earn for your Exile is 60. These points can be spent on your six main Attributes namely; Strength, Agility, Vitality, Authority, Grit and Expertise. The Maximum points you can spend on an attribute are locked at 20.

You gain a perk every time you spend 5 attribute points. When you level up an attribute to 10 points, you have the option to choose between two available perks. Maxing an attribute to 20 points would give you a total of 4 perks where 2 of these are milestones for you to choose from at level 10 and level 20.

Soul Essence is required to upgrade your attributes. You do this by sacrificing a living human on a sacrificial stone to gain Soul Essence. These in turn can be used to further enhance your attributes by corrupting them and giving you more power at the expense of your life and stamina.

The number of points you can spend on corrupting a certain attribute depends on the level of the attribute. For example, if you have spent 10 attribute points to your strength, then you can corrupt your strength attribute up to level 10.

Like the basic attribute levelling system, you gain additional perks for every 5 points of attribute spent on the corruption.

Take note that you have to be heavily corrupted for you to corrupt your attributes. Using spells learned from sorcerers will raise your corruption level.

Spending 5 points of Authority gives you the Irritate Perk. Your active followers will goad your enemies to force them to attack your follower. This is more like the taunt skill in other role-playing games.

Spending 5 points of corruption will give you the Frenzy perk. When dealing damage in combat, your followers enter a frenzied state dealing 3% increased damage for each corrupted authority attribute. The higher corruption you spend on authority scales your follower overall increased damage.

At 10 corruption points, you gain the Flesh Bond Perk. Damage taken by you is split between you and your followers.

At 15 corruption points, you gain the Devour Perk. Damage dealt by your follower heals you. This is a good perk to get if you are going for a corrupted build. This would increase your survivability when every damage your follower dishes out would convert a certain percentage to health.

At max Authority corruption, you get the Demon Lord Perk. When dealing damage, you have a chance for an uncontrolled demonic entity to appear and attack your enemies temporarily.

This is actually a good perk although if you have zombies in your group, the Demon also considers them as enemies and in some situations, your demon just goes for the nearest zombie follower you have and end up fighting amongst themselves while you are left with dealing with enemies.

Corrupted vs. Uncorrupted Build

We recommend you focus on the Uncorrupted build. They have great perks that would help you in most situations. Being corrupted grants you very strong perks but remember that this costs you health and stamina in the end.
