ESO Sanctum Ophidia Trial

Welcome to The Tank Club: ESO Sanctum Ophidia Trial Guide for Tanks.

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 Veteran Rank 14 (CP140) trial and had a normal and hardmode. A veteran mode and update to CP160 was later added in the Dark Brotherhood DLC in May 2016.

In this trial you’ll find 4 bosses and it can be completed on Normal, Veteran, along with being able to activate 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.

This guide will focus on the Tank role and the mechanics and strategies for successfully completing this trial.
