Hello Noveans,

Today we are coming out with a long awaited game update.

The Nightmare of Ashihama

The Nightmare of Ashihama, often simply referred to as The Nightmare, is a large,
otherworldly horror who feeds on the life force of sleeping people, giving her victims horrible nightmares until their life force is completely drained and expires.

The Nightmare can found by typing ;;nightmare ingame or by using the teleport wizard > Bosses > The nightmare

The nightmare boss can be killed solo or with multiple people
You can create your own instance or join somebody else's to help them with the fight.


Main attacks
The Nightmare can use all 3 combat styles.
It is crucial that you correctly protect against her attack, due to the fact that you will take 20% more damage than usual if you are using the wrong protection prayer.

She primarily attacks with mage or range, but can sometimes switch to melee unexpectedly and deal high damage to players situated in the direction she is facing.


  • Nightmare staff
  • Volatile orb
  • Eldritch orb
  • Harmonised orb
  • Inquisitor's mace
  • Inquisitor's hauberk
  • Inquisitor's plateskirt
  • Inquisitor's great helm
  • Little Nightmare pet

Combination weapons

The Nightmare staff can be upgraded with 3 different orbs:

  • Eldritch nightmare staff

The defining feature of this variant is the special attack, Invocate, which consumes 75% of the players special attack energy, and restores the caster’s prayer points by 50% of the damage dealt.


  • Harmonised nightmare staff

The defining feature of this variant is that it can cast spells on the standard spell book with only a 4 tick delay, as opposed to the normal 5 ticks.


  • Volatile nightmare staff

The defining feature of this variant is the special attack, which costs 55% of their special attack bar, and deals damage from 50 (level 75 magic) to 66 (level 99 magic) without any magic damage boosts.
The max hit of this spell off-task is 84.
Players also benefit from 50% increased accuracy when using this special attack.
