Sanctum of Domination
The Tarragrue – The Jailer's relentless beast, the Tarragrue, has stalked the halls of Torghast since its first spire was raised. Countless victims have felt their souls trampled to ash by this monstrosity, which now awaits the mortal champions breaching the threshold of the tower.
The Eye of the Jailer – When Azeroth was young, Odyn traded his eye to Mueh'zala to peer into the Shadowlands. Vain Odyn was deceived, for the Jailer twisted the Eye to serve his own ends. The Eye's unwavering gaze allows the Jailer to see all that transpires within his domain--and perhaps others as well.
The Nine – The dark pact Sylvanas struck with the val'kyr forged her bond with the Jailer. Through the years, these winged sisters faithfully served the Dark Lady, even if it meant sacrificing themselves on her behalf. Now Sylvanas calls her nine val'kyr to fight for her one last time.
Remnant of Ner'zhul – Intended to herald the Jailer's reign on Azeroth, the first Lich King, Ner'zhul, proved unworthy in his master's eyes. The last remnants of the fallen orc's twisted soul were encased in spiked shadowsteel, condemned to everlasting torment for his failure. All who cross his path will share in his suffering.
Soulrender Dormazain – Soulrender Dormazain extracts anima from the hellaciously brutish captives of Torghast to fuel the Jailer's armies. Dormazain has never met a soul he couldn't break, but his latest victim is proving resistant to the usual methods. Feeding on this captive's unending rage, Dormazain will enjoy spending millennia finding his weaknesses.
Painsmith Raznal – Painsmith Raznal is a sadistic mastermind who has spent eons perfecting the deadly traps found in Torghast. He relishes the screams of his victims as a testament to his skill, listening with malignant delight as they echo through the tower's desolate halls.
Guardian of the First Ones – Pulled by the Jailer's chains from a distant, unknown realm, this malfunctioning guardian seeks to protect the inscrutable knowledge known as "cyphers". It uses the last of its power to obliterate any who would attempt to plunder the secrets of its enigmatic makers.
Fatescribe Roh-Kalo – Once a fatescribe entrusted with Korthia's countless secrets, the Mawsworn seized Roh-Kalo and bound him to the Jailer's will. With Torghast's power at his disposal, Roh-Kalo seeks to author a new fate for the Shadowlands.
Kel'Thuzad – The nefarious Kel'Thuzad awaits at the apex of the soul river, allowing the lich to draw upon an unlimited well of power. All his countless schemes and machinations have led to this final confrontation, where he has plotted the mortal champions' ultimate demise in service of his true master.
Sylvanas Windrunner – With Oribos in peril, a desperate battle at the pinnacle of the Sanctum begins. Standing between the Jailer and the mortals who would stop him is Sylvanas Windrunner. With no masks left to wear, the Banshee Queen unleashes her full power to protect the Banished One while his ultimate plan unfolds.
World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands - Best Sanctum Upgrade Order
By William ParksUpdated
World of Warcraft: Shadowlands players can find details on what Sanctum upgrades they should pursue first in this short guide.
After reaching Level 60, selecting a Covenant, and completing some short quests in World of Warcraft's Shadowlands expansion, players will be able to start upgrading their Sanctums. However, with a variety of Sanctum upgrade options available from the start, some fans may be unsure about what to dedicate their resources to first. Indeed, it is for these players that this guide is being written, and they will find some recommendations on a Sanctum upgrade order in World of Warcraftwithin.
Updated August 2, 2021 by Mina Smith: As Shadowlands players continue to play and explore, and as new updates come in for this newest WoW expansion, the order of things can definitely change. While many players might argue that the trinket makes the Fast Travel Network the first upgrade players should make, the Anima Conductor is probably the best upgrade to focus on first for most players. This depends a little on what is important as a player, but this article has been updated to reflect the importance of choosing the Anima Conductor first. With more changes coming soon to Shadowlands, players can expect this order may change.
Choosing the Best Sanctum Upgrade in Shadowlands
The primary thing being considered here is what Sanctum upgrades in Shadowlands have the most potential impact on overall player power. As such, fans that consider things like cosmetics to be more important than the relative strength of their characters in WoW may disagree with the recommendations found below. However, this guide will attempt to acknowledge the benefits of each upgrade option so that every type of player can make a more informed decision.

Anima Conductor Upgrades in Shadowlands
It is recommended that fans that are primarily focused on raising the power level of their characters upgrade the Anima Conductor first. Doing so will give players access to Anima Conductor events, which will eventually grant a special currency called Grateful Offerings as rewards. With 35 of these Grateful Offerings, players can purchase a Chronicle of Lost Memories from their Covenant's Renown vendor, and using this item will instantly give the character the Memory of an unknown Legendary Power in WoW.
While it will certainly take some time to start using Chronicles of Lost Memories, especially since they require that four Anima streams be permanently reinforced, this is perhaps the most impactful item, in terms of increasing player power, that can come out of the Sanctum upgrade system. Indeed, having an additional source for Legendary Powers is a great way to both play catchup and supplement Memory farming, and it is why the Anima Conductor is being recommended as a first upgrade.
Upgrading the Command Table in Shadowlands
From there, players may want to turn their attention to upgrading the Shadowlands Command Table, as it can also lead to rewards that improve a character. Soul Ash, for example, is a potential reward from Adventures, and that material plays a critical role in crafting Legendary Armor. That said, none of the rewards found on the Command Table are quite as powerful as the Chronicle of Lost Memories, making it a less important upgrade.
The Transportation Network in Shadowlands
That brings things to the Transport Network, which makes traveling across zones easier, and the Covenant Special Feature, which focuses on a mini-game that leads to cosmetic rewards. From the perspective being assumed for this guide, these can be considered lower-priority upgrades to be focused on last. However, if a WoW player feels that faster travel or a new Shadowlands mount will improve their experience greatly, then they should certainly not shy away from going with one of these upgrades first.
List of All Sanctum Upgrades
Each faction in Shadowlands has its own set of upgradables, so each of these are available no matter which faction a player has chosen:
- Anima Conductor
- Fast Travel Network
- Command Table
- Unique Covenant Progression Tiers

Your Covenant Sanctum in Shadowlands will let you customize your zone, run missions, host parties, and even farm souls
The Shadowlands beta is starting next week, and it will give us our first look at the complete Covenant system, including the new Sanctums feature. Each faction has a Sanctum — similar to our Warlords Garrisons or Legion Class Halls — that you’ll upgrade as you progress through the game. Ion Hazzikostas described it as “a base of operations” for your Covenant, and you’ll be spending a lot of time there.
All Sanctums share some key features:
- A transportation network. Each Sanctum is located in the Covenant’s zone — the Night Fae Sanctum is in Ardenweald, the Venthyr Sanctum is in Revendreth, the Kyrian Sanctum is in Bastion, and the Necrolord Sanctum dominates Maldraxxus — and while you’re in those zones, you’ll have access to a Covenant-only fast travel system. Each will be themed to your covenant: Ion mentioned series of roots would help Night Fae travel throughout Ardenweald, while the Venthyr use blood mirrors to get around Revendreth.
- Zone upgrade and customization options. Each Sanctum will also have an Anima Conductor, which lets you direct the flow of anima throughout the zone. This lets you regrow areas, decide what kind of structures exist, and what kind of quests are unlocked — temporarily and, eventually, permanently — as you progress. The Anima Conductor essentially introduces a kind of customization to the entire zone itself, rooted in the Sanctum. By restoring the flow of Anima, you essentially regrow the zone after the chaos of the Anima drought.
- A mission table. The final feature that each Covenant will possess is the Scouting Map, which takes the mission table concept from Warlords of Draenor and updates it to be less like a hit or miss, succeed or fail game and more like playing an actual turn-based RPG insideWoW itself. You level up your Soulbinds, recruit champions, and use custom troops to engage in missions and, for lack of a better word, play a mini-game version of WoW inside WoW itself, or through the mobile app. I’m really interested to see if I end up loving this. It feels like it could end up as an in-game equivalent of games like Raid, and I’m not sure I’m down for that.
But Sanctums are more than a place to set your hearthstone and click on missions: they their own unique gameplay features that should make playing each Covenant feel different. Each Sanctum also has a feature that’s unique to the faction in question:
- Venthyr: The Ember Court, which is a kind of party zone where Venthyr players will play a minigame based in politics and social interaction that is you throwing a ridiculously over the top gothic party.
- Kyrian: Path of Ascension, where you essentially play as one of your own Soulbinds, taking that Soulbind character into the Soul Mirror to engage in combat not dissimilar to the Brawler’s Guild, except with souls.
- Necrolords: Abomination Factory, which is essentially a monster mashup letting you build horrible undead monstrosities and jam the souls that need bodies into these creatures.
- Night Fae: Queen’s Conservatory, which is designed around Ardenweald’s mission to return souls to mortal existence in a method that makes it similar in gameplay to Pandaria’s farm, albeit a farm where you gather anima and protect and nurture it until it is ready to return to the world.
You can watch Ion describe these various systems on World of Warcraft’s YouTube channel, and you’ll get a chance to go hand’s on with them next week.
