ESO Sanctum Ophidia Main Tank Build

Updated: Blackwood (June 2021)

Sanctum Ophidia Information

Welcome to The Tank Club: ESO Sanctum Ophidia Main Tank Build.

Sanctum Ophidia is a base game 12-person trial located in Craglorn. It was the third trial introduced into The Elder Scrolls Online with the Upper Craglorn DLC in September 2014. Originally this trial was a VR14 trial and had a Normal and Hardmode but a Veteran mode and update to CP160 was later added in the Dark Brotherhood DLC.

Sanctum Ophidia was always one of the harder Craglorn trials but also had the easiest Hardmode. In this trial you’ll find 4 bosses and many different add pulls and a last boss Hardmode. There is also a secret room called the Troll Pit where you can fight wave after wave of Trolls to get an achievement.

These are Main Tank builds that are tried and tested for Veteran Sanctum Ophidia and its Hardmode also.
