OSRS – Nightmare Unique Loot Drop Guide

OSRS – Nightmare Unique Loot Drop Guide

The Nightmare of Ashihama has some great unique loot drops, including an armor set and two formidable weapons.

Whilst out questing for OSRS Gold and glory, you may have come across the Nightmare of Ashihama. Often abbreviated to The Nightmare, this formidable creature found in the Sisterhood Sanctuary, and can drop a series of eye-catching pieces of loot. Before we take a look at what this loot is, you will need to make sure that you have gotten to a point where you can access Morytania. Apart from that, there are no extra requirements needed to fight The Nightmare.

As far as what The Nightmare is, the enemy described as a “large, otherworldly horror” that takes the life force from those who are asleep, which drained until there is no more. This is also said to be the cause of terrifying nightmares, making the name a particularly good fit. Yet, if you do decide to take her on, then you could end up getting one of the following drops.

The OSRS Nightmare Staff

The drop from the Nightmare is described as once belonging to the shamans of Ashihama, though the real name of it has now been lost in translation. If you do manage to get a hold of one, then you will be required to have level 65 Magic, as well as 50 hitpoints School RuneScapes in order to equip it.

What’s more, players are able to attach three different orbs to the staff to give them different abilities. By attaching a Volatile, Harmonised, or Eldritch orb to the staff, you will create a Runescape staff nightmare with a precursor of whichever orb you attached, for example, the Eldritch Nightmare and so on. It is a rare chance of dropping at 0.437%, but with its Magic attack and defense bonuses, its worth keeping an eye on.

Eldritch Orb

As mentioned above, there are three orbs that you can attach to the Nightmare Staff, and these orbs are dropped by The Nightmare also. The orbs are incredibly rare drops, with Eldritch coming in at 0.0972%.

If you do manage to get a hold of one and attach it to Old School Runescape Staff Nightmare, then you can use it to auto-cast offensive standard spells. You will need the same 50 Hitpoints as the staff does to wield but will also need 75 Magic skill to go with it. It can also be used for Ancient Magicks, so it can prove to be very valuable to you.

Harmonised Orb

The chances of a Harmonised Orb dropping is the same as the Eldritch Orb and can be used on The Nightmare Staff to make the Harmonised Nightmare. To wield this OSRS staff nightmare, you will need the same requirement stats as those with the Eldritch Orb. The difference between the two orb staffs is that the Harmonised Staff Nightmare cannot auto-cast Ancient Magicks.

What it does offer however is increased attack speed when casting from the standard OSRS spellbook without any delay. It can also be used in PvP world settings since it isn’t technically classed as a powered staff, which is good news if you ever find yourself in this situation.

Volatile Orb OSRS

The Volatile Orb has the same drop rate as the previous two, and once again has the same wielding requirements. It also works in a similar way of the Eldritch Orb, in that it can auto-cast offensive standard ancient spells and Ancient Magicks when combined to make the Volatile Nightmare Staff.

When this staff is created, it has a special attack known as Immolate. This takes 55% of special attack energy from the player who contributes 50% more accuracy to their range attacks. Naturally, this is going to create a pretty high and accurate amount of damage. Just how much magic damage is caused depends on where your Magic level is at, with a maximum possible hit of 80 when you reach level 99. This is increased to 89 if you find yourself on a Slayer task.

Inquisitor’s Armour Items

There are three Inquisitor’s armor drops that can come from The Nightmare. With the exception of the Inquisitor’s Mace, which we will discuss shortly, there is a 0.291% chance of you getting your hands on them.

Starting with the Great Helm, you will need 70 Strength and 30 Defence in order to equip it. Once you have done so, you will be able to increase your base damage and accuracy if you use crush attacks. This is boosted if you manage to get all of the pieces of the Inquisitor’s armor.

The Inquisitor’s Hauberk has the same requirement stats as the helm as part of the armor sets. By equipping it you will also see the same increases of damage dealt with accuracy, which stands at 0.5%, increasing to 2.5% when equipped with the other pieces of armor. Meanwhile, the final piece of the armor set is the Inquisitor’s Plateskirt. It’s worth mentioning that all these Inquisitor’s items count towards being a Zamorakian item when you are in the God Wars Dungeon.

Inquisitor’s Mace

Finally, there is a mace that can accompany that armor set you’ve just read about. Though it has a rarer drop rate at 0.146% compared to the armor items and Nightmare Staff, it can be a useful item to get a hold of.

Since the armor set has boosts that cater to the crush attack style, it comes in handy that the mace is a crush weapon. You will need 75 Attack in order to wield it, and thankfully doesn’t need any charges, nor does it degrade. As far as its combat stats go, it has a +95 crush bonus, as well as a +52 stab attack bonus. It also has a +89 Strength bonus, so it can prove to be a very effective weapon.

These are the unique drops that you can expect to see from The Nightmare. Each time you kill it there is a chance for you to roll two unique drop tables, which will contain one of each of the items and armor. So whilst you won’t have to fork out your OSRS Gold, you will need to defeat The Nightmare a few times to get the chance to earn all of the items on this list. Having said that, the bonuses with the armor and its overall look is very appealing, so if you are prepared to fight The Nightmare, then be sure to try and get as many of these items as you can.

OSRS Mobile Resolution Guide

OSRS Mobile Resolution Guide

Old School Runescape (OSRS) mobile has introduced a brand new audience to the wonderful world of Gielinor. Because of the new platform switch, there may be players who have run into issues while playing the game. One issue, in particular, revolves around the resolution of the handheld device. With that in mind, here is a short guide to help you make the most of your experience on OSRS Mobile. Pay close attention and you will be slaying demons and racking up all the OSRS Gold you can get your hands on in no time at all!

Performance Fixes

If your game is running low on performance, then there are a few ways for you to rectify it. Some of these methods may sound utterly simplistic at first glance, but they are tried-and-tested ways of fixing key performance issues.

The first fix is a classic that many of will most likely have already tried when it comes to technology in general. This method involves turning your device on and off again. This technique may be greeted with a pained groan but it can actually help with your resolution. This is because it can help your device with slow data speeds, so it is definitely worth trying straight off the bat.

Another issue revolves around data and storage. Both of these need to be able to cater to your particular device. With that being said you need to make sure that your platform has enough storage space. Without the correct storage space, your game may lag midway. Even though the app itself clocks in at just under 100mb, the numbers can increase following updates. As far as data goes, you should try to find a WiFi connection wherever possible. OSRS Mobile uses up to 2mb of data on average per hour, so connecting to WiFi could help your performance woes and save the amount of data you are using.

Tablets vs. Mobile

When OSRS was announced for mobile platforms, it raised a lot of questions. One of those being what devices we would be able to use them on. Given that the game is over a decade-and-a-half old, many assumed it would run on any handheld device. This yet is not strictly true.

OSRS Mobile, as the name suggests, is focused on the mobile experience. When it comes to tablets, it may run into some issues where performance is concerned. That isn’t to say that it won’t run smoothly on a tablet, but there will be certain devices that it may not be streamlined enough on. For the time being, you should focus on keeping OSRS on your mobile and research if your tablet is capable of running it without issue.

Battery Performance

Battery life is something else you’ll need to keep an eye on to get the most out of your OSRS Mobile experience. This is something that the developers have outlined when it comes to the performance of the game on mobile. So there are a few settings you can tinker with to make the most of OSRS Mobile.

Firstly, you can increase the game’s runtime by reducing the brightness on your phone. It would also help your battery life, and game performance if you close any background apps you have running. If your resolution is suffering too, then try to avoid areas where you will find a lot of other players. This will also help your battery life from draining too much. Finally, you can also alter your FPS settings within the game. You can find this under Mobile Options where you will see a bar that says Limit FPS. You could choose to lower this to help your battery life and the performance of the game.

These few tips should help you with your resolution on OSRS Mobile. Many will have come across issues such as lagging, and battery performance. Others may have noticed screen res lowering throughout their experience with the popular handheld MMO. Now that you have a better idea of how the resolution can be optimized, you are ready to run the game. So get out there, traverse dungeons, and shower yourself in all the OSRS Gold you can find!

 

OSRS MOBILE GIANT MOLE GUIDE: HOW TO KILL THE MOLE

OSRS MOBILE GIANT MOLE

Do not fear the Giant Mole in OSRS Mobile. It may seem like an intimidating creature at level 230, but with the proper equipment and the knowledge you’ll be getting from this guide, we dare say anyone can slay it and promptly lay it to rest! Killing the Giant Mole can earn you your fair share of OSRS Gold, and you can even gain more depending on your speed and luck. With our OSRS Giant Mole Guide, we’ll show you some tips when hunting this mid-level boss and how to prepare for it.

What is the Giant Mole (Talpidae Wysonian)?

The Giant Mole is a mid-level mole boss found in the caves under Falador Mole Lair Park. The Giant Mole is possibly one of the easiest bosses in Old School RuneScape to date. In fact, other than chasing the Mole around the caves as it burrows, there aren’t any more advanced mechanics than that. The main reason players kill the Giant Mole (most notably Ironmen) is to gather Mole Skins and Mole Claws, which can be traded to Wyson the gardener in Falador Shield Park for Birdsnests. Bird nests are always in demand because they’re the secondary Herblore ingredient to make Saradomin brews. As bird nests are quite difficult to get by through another method of killing, the Giant or Talpidae Wysonian is the fastest and most popular way in RuneScape, making it a great mid-level boss to farm up-on.

How to Find the Giant Mole(Talpidae Wysonian)

This Talpidae Wysonian monster can be found by using a spade on the mole holes in Falador Park  Garden. The mole lair is a rather dark place, so you will need to bring a light source with you. A bullseye lantern should be your first choice when it comes to that, as you save inventory space with, but a candle or a tinderbox will work just as well. The Talpidae Wysonian tends to respawn in the middle of the large center area of the dungeon.

Gearing Up

While there are no requirements to kill the Monster, we highly recommend adventurers like yourself to complete the Falador Hard Diary beforehand. To take on the mole, we also have stats that we recommend you should have. The Giant Mole has high defense against Magic and Ranged gear, so it’s best to go on Melee gear.

Requirements:

70 Attack speed & Strength/Range

45 Defense (Or 70+ with good armor without Prayer)

43 Prayer

50 Agility (Useful for exploring the caves)

When it comes to facing the Giant Mole, patience is the most important thing. It can sometimes take up to 10 minutes to find it after it has burrowed into the ground. Thankfully, the fight against the Talpidae wysonian is an easy one–just use the Dharok method. With the Dharok method, you’ll need to wear Dharok the Wretched’s equipment with low Hitpoints to utilize its set effect of higher damage at lower hitpoints. Use your Dwarven Rock Cake to bring your HP down to 1 in order to maximize your damage out. But keep in mind that when camping low health hitpoints the Giant can easily kill you, so the prayer “Protect from Melee” should be enabled.

Have the lightest inventory possible, just less than 1kg. Since you need to do a lot of running, a light inventory with some energy potions and an agility level of 50+ is recommended. It may also be beneficial for you to bring teleport runes if you’re at a much lower level, but if you’re a high-level player, you should be alright by simply operating your jewelry right from your combat stats menu to change items or drop tables to whatever you prefer.

Rewards

The average loot per kill of the Giant Mole is 19,599 OSRS Gold. Most of the loot (rare drops), namely 80.9% of it comes from the mole claws and mole skins. Giving these mole parts to Wysonin exchange for bird nests makes it profitable; however, due to the constantly changing prices on the Grand Exchange, the price will dwindle. Luckily, since bird nests are continuously in high demand for people who are into Herblore, it’s an item that’ll never go super cheap.
