- Instance Information -

  • Duration: October 23 through November 6, 2013.
  • Dungeon Name: Nightmare Circus
  • Players: 2-6 Required
  • Level: 30+
  • Re-entry Time: 22 hours and time scrolls are also available from the store.

- How to Participate -

To help save Yume, you must be at least level 30 with a minimum group of two players. Yume’s faerie friends are available in Pandaemonium, Sanctum or Katalam. Speak to them to start the Nightmare Circus instance. The fairies have asked the Daevas for help, and to hide your identity, you will be transformed into a Khum’gom, a bear-like creature. As a Khum’gom, your regular attack skills will not work. You will be given five preset skills including a healing spell. To become even stronger, you can transform into a Nightmare Circus Harlequin. The Harlequin transformations are available via an in-game quest. Additional ones can be purchased on the store.


- Location -




- Stage One -

Once you’ve transformed into a Khum’gom or a Harlequin, you can start the instance by attempting to break the cage lock holding Yume captive. Monsters will come down the three gates and circle the cage. You must defeat these monsters before the first boss, Mistress Viloa, spawns or you’ll have to fight them while she is there. Viloa will only appear for a short time so defeat her and grab the crate key pieces she drops!

- Stage Two -

When Mistress Viloa is defeated or despawns, she summons the second boss, Grand Lord Reshka. Upon appearance, he will spawn boxes which contain monsters that he can use. Destroy the boxes to stop Reshka from using them. Make sure you defeat Reshka before he despawns, or you won’t get any crate key pieces from him to assemble later.

- Stage Three -

Nightmare Lord Heiramune, the final boss, will appear once Reshka is defeated or has despawned. Heiramune must be defeated to rescue Yume and will not despawn. During the fight, he will summon nightmare creatures and a phantom of himself, which will cast healing spells, to aid him.

Once Heiramune is defeated, Yume will be freed from her cage and her faerie friends will join in to thank you. The Nightmare Crates will spawn and players can open the crates with keys created from the pieces dropped or purchased from the store. A normal Nightmare Crate requires one key to open while the Greater Nightmare Crates need three.

Now that you've completed the instance you can run it again after the 22-hour cooldown. If you want to run it sooner, time scrolls are also available in the store to reset the cooldown timer.

- Event Tips-

  1. The mobs will not attack until they are alerted of your presence. Be careful and avoid accidentally training the mobs on your group because they will hurt!
  2. For even more HP and powerful attacks, you can use a Harlequin transformation when you enter the instance.
  3. Yume will heal you every few seconds if you're near her cage so consider fighting monsters near her.
  4. Try to take down as many mobs as possible before the first boss, Mistress Viloa, spawns or you’ll end up fighting her and a horde of monsters.
  5. The Stage One boss, Mistress Viloa, and the Stage Two boss, Grand Lord Reshka, will despawn if they aren’t defeated in the allotted time.
  6. When fighting Heiramune, designate certain group members to fight the Mammoths and Phantom Heiramune. Take down Phantom Heiramune as soon as you can, as he can heal the Nightmare Lord Heiramune.
