Sanctum of Domination

The Sanctum of Domination is a raid in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, introduced in patch 9.1.0. It is located in The Maw, as the uppermost section of Torghast. It is the home base of the Jailer.[1]

The raid consists of 10 bosses. Encounters include the true Eye of the Jailer, the Tarragrue, Kel'Thuzad, and Sylvanas Windrunner.[2]

Getting there

Instance line and meeting stone

Adventure Guide

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.
