Once he had learned enough, he left Lunar Isle attempting to find the location where he built the huge tower. Since he had not found it or gathered enough money for its construction, he decided to set up a small business north of Vanilla selling dreams to people.
Cost per dream ModeNormalHard PracticeFreeFree Endurance1,0005,000Rumble2,0006,000Custom22,00026,000Custom with maximum quest points 12,00016,000 Two players participating in a rumble. There are 3 modes in Nightmare : practice, endurance, and rumble. In the hard difficulty, the bosses have increased Hit points, Attack, Strength, Magic, and Ranged levels where applicable.
Their Defense and defensive bonuses remain unchanged, although there are a couple exceptions. Some bosses in the hard difficulty can only attack with Melee or lose some special fight mechanics, such as Ice Troll King and Jungle Demon.
Some bosses gain extra mechanics, such as The Untouchable, which reflects 20% of any damage dealt. Once a mode is chosen, money is removed from the coffer, and Dominic prepares the dream potion on a plinth.
Players do not gain any experience or Nightmare points from defeating the boss, and the kill does not count for a Slayer assignment. Drops will be awarded upon defeat of the boss however, such as dragon bones from Elgar.
Adding more players to the party increases the maximum bosses in the arena at one time. Partying with another player who has fewer quests completed host the rumble does not increase points gained.
Zapper damages nearby monsters over time, and the attacks have a max hit of 8. The zapper does not damage bosses immune to normal attacks (such as the Jagannath Mother and Tangle foot).
Power surge fills the player's special attack bar and regenerates it by 20% per tick. Ultimate force instantly kills all the bosses present in the arena.
Some monsters within the Nightmare provide Slayer experience when killed on task. While this offers a lot slower experience than training Slayer normally, it can be a decent low-effort option for some players.
To maximize Slayer experience per hour, it is recommended to use other bosses that are easy and quick to kill such as Count Dray nor, Trapped Soul, Sand Snake, and King Roald. The use of all power-ups is recommended, including Ultimate Force if at least one point of damage has been dealt to the Slayer task monster.
Many bosses provide increased experience per damage dealt, such as Dad, Moss Guardian, ARR, and the Ice Troll King. Point values increase based on the number of bosses included.
The person who did the most damage will take a larger percentage of the maximum points from that monster. In Rumble mode, the only bosses that appear are those that all participating players have access to.
