When some authors lose their creativity, they will try to employ ghostwriters. Luckily they accept magic potions that are left in the hunting grounds as payment for their services.

Additional information


The ghostwriter (nightmare) can only be captured in region 2, Borders, in Loch Muir nightmare mode.

Theft risks

the ghostwriter (nightmare) may steal GTP (£££), XP, plasma or bait from you if you fail to capture it.

Using Nessy's, one of the Shadetouch family, or a mocktail as bait will prevent the bait being stolen.

In general, increasing the security measures of your setup can help reduce your total losses. Adding a stat like security measures, though, can hurt your stat totals in other areas. You must decide if increasing your security measures stat to reduce the chance of theft by ghosts like ghostwriter (nightmare) is worth sacrificing other stats in your setup.


The ghostwriter (nightmare) has been known to occasionally drop the following types of ghost loot:

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 ghostwriter (nightmare). Because these mockery drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the mocktails are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible mocktails that may be dropped is on the mocktails page.

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

A standard loot drop of a mocktail     5x Cherry bomb
A mockery stat caused] 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 on it), the ghostwriter (nightmare) 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 the list above.
