Nightmare Gear hits Level 80!
It just wouldn’t be Hallowe’en in the spiral without the Nightmare pack. Yesterday, KingsIsle announced updates to the pack for it’s re-release. There’s lots of new goodies to be had!
New pets, gear, seeds, pet talents, and more! You’re sure to attract attention wherever you go on a new Nightrunner or Cloudstrider Pegasus mount! We PvP folks love to talk stats, but we can’t deny that the arena has its fair share of fashion connoisseurs. 😉
Visually, the Dark Wraith gear still looks similar, but new variations on stats have been introduced. Most notably the gear now goes up to Level 80.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve already been asking yourself what stats the gear offers. Usually the Hoard Pack gear has stat drawbacks which keep it from being effective in PvP (with the exception of wands), but some of the new offerings are solid options. Here’s what info we could drag up.
Show Me the Stats!
Note: This is what we’ve been able to find so far. We’ll add more as they become available. If you have new gear info that we have missed, send a screen cap to firstname.lastname@example.org!
The Penumbra Drake is an all-new pet, exclusive to the Nightmare Pack (it can be hatched). One very unique feature is that the Penumbra’s card changes as it levels, so depending on how many times you shoot this poor lil’ guy out of a cannon, his card will be different.
Logan’s Drake is currently Adult, and gives the Death Scarab card. But, more importantly, it has manifested a brand new talent! “May Cast Dragonblade”
We roamed the streets of the Spiral to bring you early looks at the new Level 80 offerings. Here’s some of the cool stuff we found:
First, an entire new set of gear has been added to the pack. It’s called the Darkwraith’s Atonement set. It’s loaded for offense, with lots of Critical rating, but has a generous dollop of resist also!
DarkWraith’s Atonement Scythe gives 4% armor piercing, a power pip, incoming heal boost, and 65 crit rating! Yikes!
Darkwraith’s Atonement Cowl offers 8% attack boost, 7% resist, 8% incoming heal, 45 crit rating, and two cards: Dark pact and Sprite.

DarkWraith’s Atonement Robe offers 3% power pips, 50 crit rating, 12% attack boost, 15% resist, 2% incoming heal boost, and two cards: Feint and Cleanse Ward.

DarkWraith’s Atonement Boots offer 12% power pips, 10% attack, 3% general resist, 4% incoming heal boost, and two cards: Curse and Hex.
Packs are most known for their impressive wand stats, and the Level 80 Nightmare gear continues this tradition.
The DarkWraith’s Umbral Scythe gives a massive 105 critical block rating. PvP players will be scrambling to get this stat, in their continued efforts to not die from a random critical strike.
It also gives a power pip and 30 critical rating. All around a solid choice for the defensive PvP player.
The update also continued previous DarkWraith sets into Level 80. Here are some of those pieces in no particular order.
- Umbral Cowl
- Umbral Shroud
- Umbral Boots
- Umbral Scythe
- Cowl of Penance
- Boots of Penance
- Shroud of Penance
- Scythe of Penance
