The Sanctum caverns are works of art, carved masterpieces sealed long ago. Unfortunately for Craglorn, the Ophidians were always the most … fervent of the Celestial sects.

The entrance to Sanctum Ophidia

Sanctum Ophidia is an ancient Nedic temple in northern Craglorn.

Inside Sanctum Ophidia
The last room in Sanctum Ophidia where you will face The Serpent

It is the stronghold of the Serpent and his Scaled Court. It has both a Normal and a Veteran mode, as well as a "Hard Mode" which can be triggered only in Veteran mode by desecrating the sacred banners of the Scaled Court. Hard Mode only affects the Celestial Serpent, making this boss fight far more challenging.
