There are many new resources to farm in Conan Exiles: The Frozen North, some of which function differently than what you may be familiar with. This may prove difficult for your survival, so knowledge plays a critical element of whether or not you can progress.
One resource that you'll come across is the meteorite. This small rock presents opportunity for you to gain some valuable ore.
In order to harvest it, you need to break the outer shell. Explosives such as the Explosive Jar are great for this. After you destruct its shell, you'll have access to the node.
The node can be mined as normal. Enjoy!
