Considered the Guardian "capital" of Telara, Sanctum feels as welcoming as it can possibly get. Housing most of the main Guardian shops and merchants, you'll spend plenty of time here during the first 40 levels if you choose to become a Guardian. If you choose to become a Defiant, it's inadvisable to try sneaking in until at least level 50.
Look closely...a brave rogue is considering just that.
