Description


BEWARE! Only for the daring agents. The ghosts inside Castle McCloud will steal your GBP, XP, and Ghost Plasma if you fail to catch them!

Dreadful aura: Your mystic power will be reduced by 70!

Requirements

You must have at least 1,200,000 XP and 60,000 £££ to travel to Castle McCloud nightmare mode. Once you have made this one-time payment, you will be able to travel freely between Castle McCloud nightmare mode and other locations you have unlocked.

Strategy


Castle McCloud nightmare mode is a location of high risk, lots of frustration, but also high rewards!

Ghosts here are difficult to trap. You need to be prepared to see lots of red crosses in your log. Missing 4 out of every 10 ghosts is very common. Some pages of your log may be nothing but red crosses.

Power

There's a (secret) raw power threshold: After a certain point, adding additional raw power won't help you trap more ghosts.

Whatever mystic power your setup has will be reduced by 70 while you are in Castle McCloud nightmare mode.

Nerves of steel can give you some additional power against the nightmare ghosts...but you will still miss a lot of ghosts even if you stack every bit of nerves of steel that you can acquire into your setup.

Lots of loot

Every ghost has a chance to drop loot. That doesn't mean that you will automatically see a lot more loot ... it just means that there is a chance of getting loot from each ghost you trap. Loot details are shown below, but there are souvenirs for new collections, documents for new contracts, and new companions that can be dropped. Many ghosts are dropping plasma of one type or another.

Nightmare tokens

Nightmare tokens are a new type of currency which can be used at Bayoushi's shop.

Pack your patience

Pack your patience before you travel to Castle McCloud nightmare mode—you're going to need it!

Special ghosts

Special mythic creature, monster, gift, and seasonal ghosts can also be trapped in Castle McCloud nightmare mode, since they can be found in all non-raiding, non-AV locations in Virtual Scotland.

Mythic-creature ghosts

The special mythic-creature ghosts include such Nessy's-loving ghosts as Ghost Nessy, Banshee ghost, Cu Sith, Kelpie, Selkie, Glowing Ghost Nessy, Shrieking banshee ghost, Howling Cu Sith, Luring Kelpie, Moonlight Selkie, Glaistig ghost and Green glaistig ghost.

Monster ghosts

The monsters you may attract in Castle McCloud nightmare mode include the original monsters as well as the jurassic and dino monsters, the elemental monsters, the blood cauldron monsters, the sacred monsters (also known as the sacred monsters), the techno monsters, the alien monsters, and some golden monsters... whew! It's easier just to refer to the monsters.

Gift ghosts

Gift ghosts are ghosts you will only catch if a fellow agent sends one to you. The gift ghosts that are currently available and that can be caught in Castle McCloud nightmare mode include:

During the Christmas holiday season, the Christmas elf ghost is also available for friends to gift to other friends.

Seasonal special ghosts

To find out when (and which) seasonal ghosts may be available next in Castle McCloud nightmare mode, check out the 2018 seasonal special ghost calendar.

Loot


Loot is occasionally dropped in Castle McCloud nightmare mode (and in all non-raiding locations) by the local ghosts, by special ghosts and by all of the ghost monsters (original, elemental, jurassic monsters, vampire lords and ladies, and the knights of the round table).

As experienced players, agents of S.C.O.T.C.H. hunting in Castle McCloud nightmare mode will recognize that which ghosts drop which loot can change without notice. If you have a loot drop not mentioned here, please let the wiki sysop know so that a correction can be made.

Plasma (of all sorts), chrono crystal fragments, magic potions (including Nessy's Golden Reserve), and some companions are all occasionally dropped here. See the loot page for information about the loot items that are widely available in Virtual Scotland.

Mockery loot

If you have the mockery stat in your setup (through the talent tree bonus or because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 mocktails added to other loot drops from the ghosts in Castle McCloud nightmare mode. Because these mockery stat drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the mocktails are included in any loot lists for Castle McCloud nightmare mode. The entire list of possible mocktails that may be dropped is on the mocktails page.

Mockery drops can be distinguished from a normal loot drop as follows:

A standard loot drop of a mocktail     5x Cherry bomb
A mockery loot drop of a mocktail     5 Devil driver

Snowflake loot

If you have the snowfall stat in your setup (because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat), ghosts in Castle McCloud nightmare mode may occasionally and randomly drop you a snowflake as loot. Because these snowfall-driven drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, snowflake loot drops are not specifically included in any lists on this page or on the individual ghost pages.

Vintage connoissesur loot

If you have the vintage connoisseur stat in your setup (through an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 bottles of a non-Nessy's loot potion or of Shadetouch blue or Shadetouch purple added to other loot drops in Castle McCloud nightmare mode. Because these connoisseur drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the non-Nessy's loot potions involved are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible bottles that can be dropped is found on the non-Nessy's loot potions page.

Both normal drops of a particular non-Nessy's loot potion and connoisseur drops of a particular loot potion show the same way in your journal:

16 x Shadetouch purple (10 bonus loot)

Bar

At the bar in S.C.O.T.C.H. HQ in Castle McCloud nightmare mode, Charles the bartender has none of his usual fine collection of vintages available for sale.

Q-section

Professor Gadgeteer has no mechanisms available for sale in Castle McCloud nightmare mode.

Professor Gadgeteer is able to help you craft any cameras for which you have all the parts while you are in Castle McCloud nightmare mode, but that is the only assistance he can offer.

Dr Elizabeth Grimely and her staff of mystic artists are equally limited in Castle McCloud nightmare mode since they can only help you build any magic circles for which you have the molding pieces.

Dr. Grimely has no magic circles or cauldrons available for sale in Castle McCloud nightmare mode.

Office

Mrs Pennyworth in the office can finalize contracts for you, and can allow you to use the ticket-trader and the document shredder. She can't, however, sell you any of the special badges she has available in other locales.
