Nightmare where-to-stand minimap location.png

Place your cannon on the symbol just south-west of the large rock, and then stand in the spot on the minimap.

Nightmares cannon position.png

Pray protect/deflect range, torment, and auto-retaliate with blood barrage as the nightmares surround you. They attack with melee, however, their ranged attacks are what should be cautioned against. This attack is signalled by the nightmare creating a black sphere in their hands before swinging it at the player. This special attack happens after 5 auto attacks, that deal over 4,000 total damage in two simultaneous ranged hits. If the nightmare dies after beginning its special attack, the attack deals no damage.

To prevent the common, unstackable muspah spine drops from cluttering up your inventory if using area loot, you can auto-bank them using signs of the porter. If banked, they can later be placed into an alchemiser mk. II or used to make nightmare muspah pouches, which would yield a profit of 17,225. The profit calculation does not take the spines into account.
