The Mini-game takes you into dreams, where you are faced against Quest Bosses that you have already killed in the real game. Easy gives the standard amount of points, and the Bosses are the same level as they were in the Quest.
You need to store money in the coffin nearby in order to enter a dream. The most expensive dream is a customizable Hard Rumble, which is the only game mode I really recommend playing.
There is the White Ultimate Force, which should only ever be used if there is a Boss you simply cannot kill. Then, there is Power Surge, which is extremely useful for fast XP, because it regenerates your Special Attack constantly for 45 seconds.
Depending on your Combat level, it should take you around 30 minutes to one hour to get enough points for Absorption Potions. You should aim to get at least around 70 000 points using Prayer Potions, and be sure to make good use of Zapper, Recurrent Damage and Power Surge.
By using a Dwarves Rock Cake or a Locator Orb, you can lower your Hit points down to 1 so that the monsters attacking you can only ever hit a 1 on your absorption, making the damage last very, very long. Even when you are trying to get the maximum points, you should deactivate the Corrupt Lizard man, which hits through absorption.
In terms of gear for the maximum points, I recommend taking full Dark. Your inventory should consist of your Special Attack weapon, a Rock cake or a Locator Orb, 4 Overloads, 4 – 8 Prayer Potions and the rest should be Absorptions.
Upon entering, you will want to drink your Overload Potion and wait until it lowers you down. Proceed to Rock Cake and Locator Orb down to 1 Hotpoint.
To stay at 1 Hotpoint, you should be double-clicking the Rapid Heal Prayer every 40 – 50 seconds. It is good to use Zapper and Recurrent Damage again to speed up your kills, as well as Power Surge with your Special Attack weapon.
If you see Bosses like the Gelatinous Mother, or Fareed, you should try to use an Ultimate Force power-up to clear them out. So, if you can, take a look at the list of Nightmare Quests that I showed before, and try to complete more Bosses.
For the best XP rates, you will be using Prayer all the time, as well as Absorptions and Overloads. Bands or Obsidian works for a lower level with Melee, or Ranged through Chinning or using a Blowpipe is very effective.
Chinning, however, is a lot more expensive here compared to doing it at the Monkey Madness Caves. To get the maximum XP, you should not get the Zapper, Recurrent Damage or the Ultimate Force power-up.
With Ranged, Dragon Knives are now extremely OP in the Nightmare, as well as the Magic Short bow Special Attack. Choosing the correct Bosses and using Dragon Claws, you can get over 150 000 Melee Combat XP per hour.
With Ranged, you can reach similar XP rates with a Blowpipe and Chins. Since you are healed 50 Hit points when the Overload runs out, you will get damaged a lot by the monsters around you since their max hit is no longer 1 or low.
You can AFK far longer if you take Super Combat Potions instead of Overloads because you will not get that 50 Hotpoint boost after 5 minutes. Although, over time, you will gain your Hit points back, you will still be able to AFK around 10 minutes before you should lower your health again, and re-drink Super Combat.
Lastly, you can AFK for up to 20 minutes before stopping attacking with Nathans. Honestly, if you are choosing to do Nathans, you are much better off going to Bandit Camp with a Sardonic or Zamora item for much cheaper and much more AFK training.
You can imbue every Frederik and Wilderness Ring, and that doubles the stats of them. You can imbue the Black Mask and Slayer Helmet as well, which adds a 15% damage and accuracy boost for Magic and Ranged as well.
Lastly, you can imbue Crystal items to keep their stats at maximum, even as they are degrading. Each day, you can collect a maximum of 15 Herb Boxes, costing 9 500 points each.
That means that each day, you can profit almost 150 000 coins just by buying and opening the 15 herb Boxes. I hope you learned something pretty helpful today or enjoyed.
The nightmare zone is hands down the best place to train AFK in old school RuneScape. In fact, it’s so easy to get max combat here that many players truly despise it.
At the nightmare zone any player can get 99 attack, strength and defense while watching Netflix, training on another account or working. Many oars players come to the nightmare zone to train their melee and ranged.
On top of the fact that you can safely AFK train at the nightmare zone, players also come here for the rewards. The nightmare zone is located in Vanilla, the easiest way to get here is by using the mini-game teleport menu.
In order to access the nightmare zone, you must complete a minimum of 5 quests from the list below. The nightmare zone has three different game modes: practice, endurance and rumble.
The only real reason to use practice mode is if you need to recharge your dragon fire shield. You can recharge your dragon fire shield by selecting practice mode against Elgar and turning your auto retaliate off.
This is where people come to train their stats, AFK and gain nightmare zone points. You’ll want to use a super potion or overload depending on your combat style.
TIP : you can use dwarves rock cake or locator orb to bring your Hit points down to 1. Absorption and other potions can only be bought with reward points from the nightmare zone.
Power surge (yellow): regenerates your special attack for 45 minutes. This can be used to effectively increase your hourly EXP rates by using dragon claws, granite maul, dds or other spec weapons.
Count Dray nor King Roald The Kendal Tree Spirit Hazard Warlord Bouncer These have low defensive stats and don’t hit very high to maximize your AFK time with absorption potions.
The full obsidian armor setup will give you a 10% boost in melee accuracy and strength and the necklace will give your weapon an extra 20% damage boost. Absorption potions with 5 overloads (or preferably super combats) and possibly 1 spec weapon.
