Sanctum of Domination Raid Boss Tactics/Guide: The Eye of the Jailer


  • The raid will ping pong between phase 1 and phase 2 and enter phase 3 in the end.
  • Every time the boss loose 25 health (meaning at 75% / 50% / 25% health) you enter phase 2.
  • Raid will enter phase 2 three times and phase 3 starts after that.

In phase 1  
- Fight boss, stack up on chained players to bring down adds and kill them.
- Run to the harpoon and get tossed to the other side of the platform when boss does a big beam.

In phase 2
- Fight 2 eye adds by splitting raid in half and fight an add on each side of the platform.

In phase 3
- Boss will have a mini enrage and be more powerful.
- The raid has to handle same mechanics as in phase 1.

Bloodlust / Timewarp / Heroism 
At phase 3


Piercing Lens (Tanks)

  • The eye does moderate physical dmg through out the fight on main tank.

Eye Bolt (raid)

  • The small eyes swirling around the boss shoots shadow dmg on player locations.

Tactics: Eye Bolt (raid)

There are swirls on the ground before impact. At the start of the fight we will have 3 mini eyes flying around the boss and each one will shoot, meaning 3 swirls to dodge. Later on we will have less eyes = less swirls to dodge.

Deathlink (Tanks)

  • The eye of the jailer does very high physical dmg to main tank.
  • This will damage up to 9 players in the raid for the amount of damage the main tank takes.

Tactics: Deathlink

Main tank must use defensive (mitigation) to reduce that dmg on other players.

Adds: Stygian Abductors (Heroic Mode)

Boss summons adds (Abductors)

They have 2 abilities:

  • Dragging Chains
    Chains a player and players nearby.
    Tries to pull those players of the platform.
    The more players, the harder to pull the players up.
    Add can fall on the platform if to heavy.
  • Assailing Lance
    When add is on the ground.
    Throw their lance at current player doing moderate dmg and a bleed debuff for 15 sec. Both are physical dmg.

Tactics: Adds: Stygian Abductors (Heroic Mode)

  • Stack up on targeted chained player so add falls on the platform and nuke it.
  • Off tank tanks the adds when they land and tank it closer to boss for extra cleave dmg on boss.
  • Kill the add when it lands

Soul Shatter

  • Boss shatters a random players soul into 3 parts.
  • Each soul puts a stacking debuff (3 stacks from start) for 40 sec, that
    Does dmg to that player
    Reduce the movement speed by 20% (60% max)
    Reduce dmg and healing done by 30% (90% max)

 Tactics: Soul Shatter

  • Run in to each soul or run 30 yards away from them to remove the debuffs.

Titanic Death Gaze

  • Does moderate raid shadow dmg.

Annihilating Glare

  • Boss will channel a beam that starts on one side of the platform and then sweeps it.
  • Getting hit by the beam does deadly dmg every 1 sec.

Tactics: Annihilating Glare

  • On left and right top side there are harpoons. Standing close to it opens up an extra action button. Clicking on it will make you shoot a rope to the opposite side and jump there.
  • Run to the opposite side and click on the harpoon button to jump over.


  • Boss gets further back and puts a 99% defense shield around him.
  • Summons 2 adds on each side of the platform
  • The boss will still do abilities that the raid has to handle.

Positioning on phase 2

  • Divide the raid in 2 with half of each role on each side.
  • Tank takes each eye and tanks on the backside of the platform on and on each side of the platform.
  • These adds must be 30 yards from each other they will cast stacking debuff every 3 sec that increase shadow dmg taken by 20% for 1 min (Shared Suffering).

The Eye´s ability

Piercing Lens (Tanks)

  • The eye does moderate physical dmg on main tank.

Dying Suffering

If one of the two eye´s die and the other one is still alive, the dead one will cast stacking debuff every 3 sec that increase shadow dmg taken by 20% for 1 min (Suffering).

Kill the adds approximately the same time to reduce raid dmg.

Slothful Corruption

- does low/moderate shadow dmg ever 1.5 sec for 21 sec.
- reduce spellcasting
- reduce range attack speed
- reduce movement speed by 40%

Tactics: Slothful Corruption

  • This can be dispelled and must be.

Spreading Misery

  • Puts debuff on tank for 10 sec.
  • This debuff does low/moderate shadow damage every 1 sec.
  • When it expires it leaves a pool on the ground that does dmg when touching it.
  • The dungeon journal says that these 2 adds puts this debuff on random players, but it was only on the tanks.

Tactics: Spreading Misery

  • Tanks starts at one spot on each side and move away when a pool spawns underneath.
  • Make sure to position the pools close to each other and only on the side of the platform, not where the raid will stand when attacking boss.

  • Stay spread all the time.
  • Dont stand on a player with a circle and arrow on their head.

Soul Shatter (On dungeon journal but not when testing)

  • Boss shatters a random player into 3 souls, this does high shadow dmg.
  • The soul shards do dmg to that player, reduce the movement speed and reduce dmg and healing done.
  • It will be gone then that player runs in to the 3 souls again.

Tactics: Soul Shatter (On dungeon journal but not when testing)

The last phase is same as in phase 1 and desolation beam from phase 2, but the boss will

  • Follow the same tactics as before to handle phase 1 abilities and desolation beam from phase 2. 
  • The platform has less place to stand on due to all the black pools from phase 2.
