Conan Exiles Wheel of Pain is deeply rooted in Conan's painful past. The wheel's design originally came from the Vanaheim Valley. Thulsa enslaved Conan and other boys to the Wheel of Pain after they invaded their village. Conan is the last slave standing until a big warrior Red Hair brought him after 20 years.
Conan Exiles Wheel of Pain is a huge grain mill operated by slaves. The slaves' hands were chained to the mill's post as they continuously push the post to rotate the mill. It is uncertain what other functions it was used for other than taming slaves (thralls) and keeping them as passive prisoners. Slaves can only be freed from the mill if they are bought or die from exhaustion.

Enslave Thralls in the Wheel of Pain
Check out our Conan Exiles Thrall guide to find out more about what the Wheel of Pain is used for.
Essentially, you can capture thralls, or slaves that fit into various categories, including fighters, tanners, smelters, cooks, and archers. To capture them, you need to reach level 10 to unlock its recipe Thrall Taker. You need to craft Fiber Bindings and Truncheon then you can begin searching for possible slaves. Once you see one, knock him unconscious and bind him with the Fiber Bindings and bring him to the camp. Assign him to the Lesser Wheel of Pain to tame him so you can use him in other tasks you trained him to do.
