Creatures location on the map

Nightmare is one of Ellora's sacred guardians, created to bring balance to the world. Nightmare was believed to be lost until the return of Exarahn. However, many great minds are concerned by the stallion's presence as the other creatures of Exarahn seem to have suffered from exposure of dangerously unstable magical energy.

As a professional student of the ways of spacetime, here is my prognosis. Nightmare could be tamed, but only by someone with common hunter's gear lined with exarium ore to protect them from its magic. Though the price of this kind of armor is rising by the minute, I believe riding one of Ellora's greatest creations would be well worth the price.

How to Tame[]

(Mounted picture: Nightmare)

You will need a full set of modest hunter PvP gear, as the five piece buff will allow you to be capable of taming this heroic mount. Modest hunter PvP gear can be obtained from lv35 elite Enigma Chests for Exarahan coins at bloodmoon camp. It can also be crafted using recipes from Conqueror's Gate. You can also kill the mine turtle, Karoneh, which can drop sets for Modest gear per class.

Its respawn time is 4 hours, normally found to spawn anywhere 220-250 meters up. It has several spawn points and will fly around its spawn point. It has 2 locations over the Bloodmoon Lake, 3 locations in the North Conqueror's Gate region, and roughly 4 locations over the Bleakwood Region.

Nightmare can be easily jumped onto as the HP of the mount does not have to be lowered, however be careful that the mount doesn't bug above max altitude. Nightmare is a required material for both Pyron and Roxinus energies. Used to create marks to tame Burning Roxinus and Cold Pyron.
