The tower is currently one of the foremost centers of human arcane research and study today, and magi from all over the kingdom gather in the tower to discuss and debate the latest research. Despite the tower being a center of arcane research, its laboratories are open only to the higher ranking members of the Stormwind magical hierarchy. Most others conduct research outside the tower in the many laboratories in the Mage Quarter.
Archmage of the SanctumEdit
The Archmage of the Sanctum is a position of high honor and respect in the Stormwind Circle of Magi. As chief keeper of its libraries and maintainer of the tenuous order between the vying factions of mages within, the archmage must both be a keeper of lore and peace. Archmage Maginor Dumas currently holds the position, and has held it for over 10 years.
