Unlock Corrupted Attributes

In order to unlock the Corrupted Attributes in Conan Exiles, you need to head over to the Sacrificial Stone and put a Thrall into it. Once that is done, you will need to perform the Soul Drain ritual. This will allow you to become Corrupted and get some Soul Essences. It is important to note that in order to unlock the Corrupted Attributes, you need to have at least 40 Corruption.

After you have achieved that, you will be able to see Corrupted Attributes in your ‘Attributes’ tab. In order to increase your Corrupted Attributes, you will need to spend Soul Essences. Also, whenever you add to a Corrupted Attribute, you will get 2.5 percent increase in maximum Corruption but since it caps out at 50 percent, you are free to increase all your Corrupted Attributes without needing to worry about increasing your Corruption past the maximum cap.

Another very important thing to note here is that your Corrupted Attributes can never exceed your non-Corrupted Attributes. For instance, if you have got a maximum of 5 Attributes in Strength, your Corrupted Strength Attributes cannot go past 5 regardless of how many Soul Essences you have acquired.
