The Wizard's Sanctum is a tower in the center of the Mage Quarter.

Seemingly led by Maginor Dumas, the magi here strive to decipher arcane mysteries and uncover eldritch lore. Larimaine Purdue, the resident portalmancer, has created a rift portal deep in the Sanctum. She keeps the portal under close guard, and for now, will not let anyone venture through its swirling vortex. It is unknown where it leads to.

The Sanctum houses Stormwind wizards' guild, the Academy of the Arcane Sciences, and is currently one of the foremost centers of human arcane research and study today. Many high elves also seek refuge in the arcane halls, quenching their addiction and thirst for power in a safe environment.

Several female mages can frequently be found outside of the Sanctum, discussing in great and confusing detail about topics such as portals and polarity — however, if one listens closely, it is revealed that they are merely trying to develop a love potion for one of the group's crushes ("All this for a love potion? He better be worth it...").

Access to the Tower

For mages in training, access to the trainers is gained by going up the ramp and climbing to the highest part of the tower and then passing through the portal there.

  • The Wizard's Sanctum may be one of the Conjurer towers present during the second siege of Stormwind.
  • The tower may be loosely based on the Tower of High Sorcery in Palanthas, from the Dragonlance universe. This is supported by the portal in the very top and the small garden area it is surrounded by.
