I set up at p1100 x p220 and killed every mob that came within spell range. after 6 hours I had seen Tisella twice and the nightmare once ( then I left). Tisella spawned close by - just north east - but the nightmare popped far north east up by lavaspinners lair. I believe the phs for these mobs are the pathers like Brognot and Sir Lindeal

spawned directly south of Darglandoro Zandar, approximately 1/3 of the way to the druid rings. Started roaming NE from there.

Post by user cpljdog below is accurate. I set up shop around Darglandoro Zandar as Yoduh mentioned, but got the lesser nightmare shortly after I set up shop using cpljdog's method. I was by Darglandoro for ~20 hours killing everything in that field, and managed to get every named needed for achievement except for the nightmare. I got the nightmare about 10 minutes after using cpljdog method, but it looks like I got lucky.

I planted a character at +1220, -200, -92 and killed everything that pathed over me. On a separate character I roamed the zone killing anything that moved. Eventually I got a steady stream of mobs that pathed over my character, and a short while late the nightmare walked right over me.

Mobs that walked over me include: a lava basilisk, a fire drake, a fire elemental, a fire imp. They came from both NE and SW, with the nightmare coming from the SW. I'm unsure how many of these are PH's for the nightmare, but I'm hopeful this info is helpful for those chasing the hunter.

Killing stuff at loc p1500, -575 for 12 hours. Got Tisella twice and this guy finally popped in the 12th hour. He actually spawned just NE of the druid rings. This is where Tisella is labeled on the brewalls map. So he definitely can spawn in various spots.

Took me 23 hours to get him to spawn. His Place Holders are the four mobs that wander around the zone in a big circle. They appear to be on an approximately 8 minuet spawn timer and include, A Fire Drake, A Fire Elemental, A Fire Sprite, A Fire Imp, A Lava Crawler, A Lava Basilisk, A Rock Dervish, A Lesser Lavaspinner, A Thought Bleeder and Tisella. It appears that any of these can spawn as one of the four roamers. The Lesser Nightmare spawned near the zone to Lavaspinner Lair, right next to where the four A Burnt Guardians stand. The tricky part is that almost all of his PH are common mobs and they roam so it can be hard to pin them down. I would imagine that A Lesser Nightmare could spawn at any of the four spawn points for his place holders use but because of the length of time it took me to get him to spawn once I didn't test this theory. I don't have the exact LOCs of the PHs but one spawns next to the druid circle, another near where the Fire Elementals and Lava Basilisks overlap and one where the Burnt Guardians stand. I wasn't able to determine where the fourth spawns. I hope this info is useful. Good luck!

A friend did some testing during the double spawn this month and was able to narrow this down a bit. The mobs that spawn this are indeed the roamers that go from the druid port in all the way up to Lavaspinner's Lair. The mobs that spawned it did not include any: a lava basilisk, a lesser lavaspinner, or a thought bleeder. It spawned twice within 30 mins during the double spawns by killing the roamers that go past the burnt guardians. The mobs that popped as PHs: a fire elemental, a fire imp, a fire sprite, a fire drake, a rock dervish, a lava crawler. The ph will randomly spawn as any of these and the spawn timer is not 8 minutes, it actually spawns shortly after the last one is killed, maybe 2 to 3 minutes max. Method used was to kill the first lesser nightmare after making sure all other spawns were up so that the ph would populate at the top of Tracking, then killing any new spawns until it popped lesser again. The best advice is actually to sit around +1200 / - 250 and then kill non-basilisk mobs.
These are the ph spawn and kill logs from my friend after which the next a lesser nightmare spawned:

yesterday while hunting Lesser nightmare and Tisella I had 6 mobs spawn while standing in one spot ….. when you zone in from NF zone .. run straight up till you hit the wall that runs from right to left … from there go right ..till you hit a little gap between the wall that runs right to left and the one that runs up and down ….loc is about +1200 / - 250 / -93 … what I did was kill everything on the side with snakes/ Lizards/ elemnts and anything else I could hit from there … which spawned WarBone Monk (3 times min.) and Warbone Spearman (7 times Min.) the more important part is kill everything that comes threw that gap ( I am not sure which is the place holder ) I Spawned Brognot 3 times .. and a lesser nightmare (1 time he popped near the burnt skellies .. i think he was heading toward my spot when i caught him)… and i also popped Flameclaw once ,,, ( he is the Fire Drakes that come threw the gap .. but when he spawned he headed out toward the druid rings… ) ..anything that comes threw that gap either way is kill it .. Fire Drakes ,Lizards, Snakes , elements and even had a dust storm come threw ….leave Sir Leonel alone he is not part of the spawn cycle (every so often he would walk threw ) .. i got all of them to spawn in about 5 hours …..Tisella spawned today about 10 minutes (she spawned over by the Druid rings heading for my spot when i caught her )


I used a Druid to Track and a Pally with a bow to kill the mobs ...it was easier and faster recast time .. plus it made it easy to kepp track of how many mobs i killed ( Around 850 plus in the 5 hours)

"Your faction standing with Goblins of Fire Peak could not possibly get any worse. Your faction standing with Tribe Vrodak could not possibly get any better."

You receive 8 silver from the corpse.

I was strolling through LS and was beset by this guy. Lesser Nightmare had me blinded for about 75% of the fight but my pet and I prevailed and took his pelt.

Just killed this today. Was running to Najena from Sol A when I saw it down the hill from the goblin camp next to the Sol dungeons. Kept blinding me, but I was still attacking it. Dropped the nightmare hide and some necro word. Just letting y'all know it still spawns in LS.

Absolutely nothing. Well, not quite; these guys do on ocassion drop bandages, but it's kind of silly coming all the way out here hunting down a rare spawn to get bandahes for Joogl when off the rack bandages you can buy all over the place work just fine. That's why this guy is listed on the write-up for the Joogl Honeybugger quest. But just go buy bandages!

Lessor Nightmare
# Oct 14 2001 at 10:21 PM Rating: Default
I hunted Lavastorm with a lvl 18 Paladin friend, I had just turned 17 at the time. My Pally friend was finishing off a Fire Sprite and mentioned seeing a horse while I was medding. I jumped up to see something new. The Lessor Nightmare I found coned black to me. I rooted it, it resisted, I rooted it again and it stuck. Then I cast Lightning Bolt and went blind. Not a fun fealing at that time. I hit alt+7 till I got my sight back. I took the HP down till it ran and the pally jumped it. It was finished off quicker than I expected. It dropped the Nighmare Hide and a Rune of something. I want to find another one so my friend can have a Hide too.

Easy to Solo for a 25 SK on TM server. Then again, if I can't solo him at 25, there's a major problem. The blindness can cause minor problems, though. Good thing I hit for the 40's regularly and can ht for 251 though....
question!!!

Why? I don't understand why you'd want to go clear out to Lavastorm to get bandages off this thing when plain ordinary off the rack bandages you can buy from merchants in any city will work just fine for this quest. Summoned bandages and silk bandages won't work, but any ordinary store bought bandages will.

I've been hunting off & on in Lava for a year & I have yet to see this creature. Does it still spawn? Looks like I might just need to schedule a trip back...
RE: Where is the spawn & how often?
# Mar 15 2001 at 5:10 PM Rating: Default
Yes, it spawns, I was pullin for my group 3 days ago, and i run across this thing, only to immedaitely be blinded. I had sow and blindly walked backwars and apparently kited it a bit (its a wonder i didnt run into some lava hehe) my group finally jumped it, and we killed it. Our highest group member was only 12, with me being 11, the only reason we won was because a nice cleric had cast Resolution on me not too long before ;) We were pulling to the left of the LS ent, and it jumped me a bit over the hill near there. This was on Tallon Zek, btw.
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 27 2001 at 5:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) hehe, i know exactly where it spawns, my 20 warrior solos him, ill post loc in a few days, cant get on now, EQ messin up on my comp BAD
Lsr Nightmare and his hide
# Dec 16 2000 at 7:31 PM Rating: Decent
Well just got off of eq where me and my husband (Level 15 dark elf mages Maharie and Zarel)
Killed the lesser nightmare, he was yellow to us and quite easy, except he kept blinding me :P
He dropped a Nightmare hide which is worn in the back slot and is AC 5 and has 5 charges of restore sight, which when hotkeyed when you are blind will cure it. He was found near the najena entrance. =)
I see him once...
