Special ghosts

Special mythic creature, monster, gift, and seasonal ghosts can also be trapped in Castle McIngverson 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 McIngverson 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 McIngverson 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 McIngverson nightmare mode, check out the 2018 seasonal special ghost calendar.

Loot


Loot is occasionally dropped in Castle McIngverson 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 McIngverson 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 McIngverson 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 McIngverson 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 McIngverson 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 McIngverson 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)

Strategy


The key to surviving and thriving in a nightmare mode location is to figure out what your best chance of catching ghosts is ... and then to stick with it. No setup is going to be totally successful ... that's why it's called "nightmare"!

There are several factors to take into consideration:

Nerves of steel and raw power

Nerves of steel is power that is only activated/effective in a nightmare location. If you combine some nerves of steel with the right amount of normal raw power, you should have about a 60% chance to catch each ghost. The exception to this rule is the cyber battle armor ghost. We'll come back to that in a minute.

How much raw?

About as much raw as you'd need in most of the R3 (Strathclyde locations ... so what you'd use in Castle McDonohan or Count Church.

350 works 400 works slightly better

How much nerves of steel ?

Force of will and mystic power

Force of will gives you the chance to overcome the mystic resistance of ghosts like the cyber battle armor.

You will still miss a lot of Cyber battle armor ghosts no matter what setup you use.

Perseverence

Seeing red x's in your journal is discouraging, but the real secret to catching ghosts in nightmare mode is to keep hunting anyway. Once you've put whatever nerves of steel or force of will you can into your setup, you need to keep hunting. Ignore the people who post in the first half hour they're there that they've finished with everything interesting.

Luck

Luck is the wildcard ... and some people seem to get lucky all the time. Most of us don't.
