|Sanctum of Domination|
|End boss||Sylvanas Windrunner|
The Sanctum of Domination is a raid in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, introduced in patch 9.1.0. It is located in The Maw, beyond the labyrinthine halls of Torghast. It is the home base of the Jailer.
For eons the Jailer was bound within The Maw.[sic] Now, his endless armies gather as he expands its boundaries to consume Oribos. In the face of annihilation, Bolvar marshals his last remaining allies to charge into the heart of Torghast and confront the Jailer where he is most powerful.
- The Jailer's Vanguard
The Jailer's vanguard stands ready to repel any attack. Their lines must be broken to breach the Jailer's sanctum.
- The Dark Bastille
Screams of the tormented fuel the Jailer's army. End their suffering and deprive the Maw of its most precious resource.
- Shackles of Fate
The soul river ends at the tower's peak. Destroy those feeding off it to free the countless souls deprived of their afterlife.
- The Reckoning
Atop the Tower, Sylvanas Windrunner awaits. Here, the final confrontation for the fate of the cosmos will take place.
Items in the raid drop at two item levels per difficulty: the first eight bosses drop at one item level, and the last two (Kel'Thuzad and Sylvanas Windrunner) drop at a higher item level.
|Difficulty||First eight||Last two|
