Features[edit | edit source]
Layout[edit | edit source]
Players start off in a three room catacomb containing only corrupted scorpions, scarabs and lizards. There are two shortcuts in this area: one near the scorpions that drops players off to the feline akhs, and another near the scarabs that drops players off to the gorilla akhs. At the corrupted lizard room is a rope that leads to the remaining section of the dungeon. To unlock these shortcuts, players must clear the large rock blocking the way in the second half of the dungeon (at the end of the shortcut, not the beginning).
In the next section is a spiral path going down, where the remaining corrupted monsters can be found. At the base of this section, soul devourers can be found. A bridge heads deeper into a more developed area, where the imperial guard akhs (warrior, ranger and mages) are found. The First Gate is right past this group, where the Magister resides.
Drops[edit | edit source]
The dungeon has several features, including signature drops which are shared by the common monsters:
- Corrupted magic logs - tainted magic logs, these can be fletched for more Fletching experience (nothing is created from it), or burned for Firemaking experience.
- Vital spark - used to create several unique sigils.
- Key to the Crossing - a special key which allows players to battle the Magister.
- Corrupted gem - a gem that can be combined with a mighty slayer helmet to create a corrupted slayer helmet, a tier 80 helmet (in addition to 1000 slayer points).
- Khopesh of the Kharidian - Tier 82 main-hand melee weapon that can be upgraded using the Magister's drops to the tier 92 Khopesh of Tumeken. The off-hand is obtained in Shifting Tombs and can also be upgraded using the Magister's drops to the tier 92 Khopesh of Elidinis.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]
To kill the monsters in this dungeon (barring the Magister and his summoned akhs), the feather of Ma'at is required in the player's inventory. One is consumed for each kill, unless the player has unlocked the overall reputation reward slayer feather buff at 141,900 reputation, which has a chance of preventing the feather from being consumed. They can be obtained from Shifting Tombs, or from the Menaphite guard outside the dungeon.
There are twelve different types of monsters in the dungeon; six are labelled as "corrupted", while the remaining six are labelled as "akh" (soul devourer). Both types are a possible assignment from Kuradal, Morvran or Sumona, though Sumona has the highest chance to assign them. Some monsters can be killed for another task, e.g corrupted kalphite marauders for a kalphite task. The first half of the dungeon contains corrupted creatures, while the second half contains soul devourers. As players venture deeper into the dungeon, stronger monsters will be encountered.
The Sophanem Slayer Dungeon also has multiple chests throughout the dungeon; one at the entrance, another near the salawa akhs and a final one near the First Gate. The chest will automatically gather drops from the monsters, reducing the need to manage the inventory during a task. Players may opt to disable the auto-loot feature if desired. If this feature is disabled, there is a 20% chance for monster drops to be doubled. This bonus applies to regular monster drops as well as Rare drop table drops; tertiary drops, with exception of vital sparks, will not get doubled. If the player dies with loot collected in the chest, they can either pay a small fee based on the total value of the items held inside to reclaim them, or abandon the chest and start anew; it is recommended to simply pay the fee, as it is generally insignificant to the value of the items held in the chest. The reclaim fee does not apply if the player dies inside the Magister's chamber, since it is a separate part of the dungeon.
The chest can hold up to 30 different items at most; any new items that the chest tries to take in for storage is instead dropped by the monster onto the ground
The dungeon also has a corruption feature. Stacks are added as the player kills the monsters in the dungeon. They are given in 1, 2, 3, and 5% intervals, depending on the monster's slayer level and type. For example, killing corrupted scorpions or salawa akhs (the weakest monster in their respective category) would add 1% to the player's stack. Killing corrupted workers or imperial guard akhs (the strongest in their respective category) would add 5% to the player's stack. For every stack obtained, the player takes and inflicts 1% additional damage. The normal maximum cap of this corruption is at 25%. The Magister's chamber also shares the corruption feature, though the corruption cap is temporarily doubled to 50% when fighting him; upon his death, it resets back to 25%.
In the corrupted worker, feline akh and crocodile akh areas are Fonts of Elidinis which will remove all corruption stacks the player has accumulated.
Once aligned with a faction, players can gain reputation from killing the monsters in the dungeon. The stronger the monster, the more reputation is awarded. If killing the monsters on a slayer task, the reputation gained from killing them is doubled.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- On release, there were several issues in the dungeon:
- There was a bug where the chest ignored the player's luck of the dwarves ring, resulting in them getting drops that would be filtered from it, such as flax and molten glass. This was hotfixed on 20 June 2017.
- A rogue tile in the dungeon would remove any corruption stacks the player obtained if they stood on it. This was fixed with the 19 June 2017 update.
- When killing the monsters on a slayer task, upon finishing it, any monsters that died after the task completion gave normal reputation rather than doubled reputation. This was also fixed with the 19 June 2017 update.
