|Sanctum of the Burning Souls|
|Level 37 - 39|
|Zone||Wild Lands of Zelata|
|End Boss||Acheronian Warlord|
The Sanctum of the Burning Souls (SotBS) is a 6-man dungeon in the far eastern reaches of the Wild Lands of Zelata. The Sanctum is home to a number of demonic spirits and frequented by Nemedian and Black Ring raiding hosts. It is the second Epic-Only dungeon in Age of Conan and players at the recommended levels should travel in groups.
From Age of Conan:
- In the Wild Lands, the flood-ravaged ruins of the Sanctum of the Burning Souls stand broken, abandoned and forgotten by the people of Aquilonia. And yet, these Acheronian ruins are no longer silent. Strange chants echo across the Wild Lands, carried on the night winds. The Dark Beasts gather here, as if drawn to something like a beast obeying a leash. Moonlight glints off Nemedian blades, drawn in the darkness. All is not what it seems.
- Brooding on a mountaintop, overlooking the Wild Lands, the ruins of the City of Burning Souls is a tainted place. The last vestiges of Acheronian magic still cling to the ruins, and few are foolhardy enough to risk the wrath of the spirits and demons within.
- Yet there are those who make the journey, through the warped and twisted labyrinth of ancient stone to the very heart of the darkness itself…the Sanctum of the Burning Souls. The few who return from such expeditions are insane, frothing at the mouth as they scream of unimaginable horrors.
- The very stones of the Sanctum are soaked with the blood of thousands of innocents; victims who fell beneath the knives of the Acheronian Warlords and the vicious Priests of Set. Great fountains, which once flowed freely with the blood of sacrifice, now stand silent, dark stains around their base the only testimony to their grim purpose.
- Lusting for power, the Nemedians have sent a small force to investigate the ruins, and no man or woman knows what they have found there, though the Dark Beasts began attacking the Wild Lands shortly after the expedition arrived. Thoth-Amon has also sent some of his most trusted allies to discover what secrets the dark heart of Acheron may hold.
- Dark Beasts, Nemedians, Stygian Sorcerers and the demons of Acheron; the Sanctum is a challenge to even the greatest of heroes. But with stout allies and courageous hearts, a stalwart group might be able to uncover the horrible secrets contained therein.

As of v 1.05 this table is incorrect, all of the items do drop within the sanctum but are dropped by different bosses, I will attempt to make corrections where needed.
