Like other nightmare mode locations, Loch Muir nightmare mode has a mystic penalty: As soon as you enter Loch Muir nightmare mode, your available mystic power is reduced by 100 (in other words, you can see your entire stock of mystic power in your profile, and don't need to do anything special to get it to display after you leave Loch Muir nightmare mode). In Loch Muir nightmare mode, however, you're handicapped—the ghosts have more of an advantage than usual!
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.
The monsters you may attract in Loch Muir 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 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 Loch Muir 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
Loot is occasionally dropped in Loch Muir 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 Loch Muir 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.
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 Loch Muir 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 Loch Muir 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
If you have the snowfall stat in your setup (because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat), ghosts in Loch Muir 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 Loch Muir 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)
Souvenirs from other collections may alao be dropped in Loch Muir nightmare mode depending on what ghosts you catch and otherwise as noted above.
Documents for three different contracts are dropped in Loch Muir nightmare mode. (Documents for other contracts may also be dropped here but the docs mentioned in this section are all new.
