ESO Sanctum Ophidia Main Tank Build

Updated: Ascending Tide (April 2022)

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 in May 2016.

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.

Tank Guides for this Trial will be available soon in the Tank Guide section and on our YouTube channel.

Sanctum Ophidia Notes

Class

You can play any class in this trial. If you are a beginner then a sustain class like a Dragonknight will perform well.

Any race is possible in this trial but the most useful would be Redguard, Imperial, Argonian or Nord.

The best Mundus Stone to use here is The Atronach for the extra Magicka Recovery.

The suggest stats you should aim for are 40k Health, 20k+ Magicka and 25k+ Stamina.

Food

Bewitched Sugar Skulls will provide you with the most benefit for this trial.

Potions

Essence of Health (Tri-Stat) Potions are good for this trial.
