Diabolos deals dark damage and sleep to enemies within area of effect and gradually reduces their hit points.


Avatar: Diabolos (Dark)

Blood Pact: Ward

Cost: 42 MP

Level: 29


Effect Duration: Variable

Battle Application: Enfeebling

Damage Type: Magic

Additional Notes: Unlike other forms of sleep, the gradual HP reduction from this attack will not cause the targets to awaken.

  • Effects of Nightmare can be overwritten by Sleepga II
  • Unlike Diabolos Prime, any damage to the sleeping mob will wake them up.
  • Mobs with any Damage Over Time effect on can be slept with Nightmare.
  • Note that mobs put to sleep with other Damage Over Time effect on will wake up immediately if someone overwrites nightmare with Sleep II or Sleepga II.
  • Can occasionally miss entirely. "No effect" means the target is already affected by a Sleep II-class sleep; "Evades" means a resist.
  • Essentially this blood pact has 2 effects:
  • Duration varies between 30 to 90 seconds.
  • Fealty will not prevent the Sleep from taking effect like it normally does against Sleep, Sleepga and other sources.
  • It may be possible to build resistance to Nightmare's Sleep effect. (See Talk Page)
