Sanctum Research

Sanctum Research is a category of item that can be inserted into the Relic Altar to access the Sanctum floor of the Forbidden Sanctum. It is obtained by completing the previous floor in the Sanctum.

Sanctum Research includes:


A Sanctum run contains 4 floors, each containing 8 rooms. The 8th room of each floor always contains a Boss. Players can choose to engage in a room every time they encounter the portal to the Sanctum in an area or map, or defer up to 8 rooms (1 floor) to be run consecutively at a later time. Crashing during a Sanctum room will reset progress for that room and will resume the same area on your next map. Aureus and rewards are only locked in upon successful completion of a room. Each Sanctum run is independent between characters on the same account.

  • Aureus is maintained between rooms and floors, and is lost when the Sanctum run ends.
  • Boss Room always in the 8th room of any floor. Boss rooms contain a chest for any accumulated Item Rewards for the floor, as well as two additional Item Reward chests.
  • The default maximum Resolve is 300. Resolve is maintained between rooms, and the player is ejected from the Sanctum if it hits 0, resetting all floors and rooms. Being ejected does not count as a death, nor does it remove experience.
  • Item Reward Room: Recieve #x <item2> at end of the Floor ("at end of the next Floor" if on room 8)
