    The profit rate assumes 12 kills per hour in 5 man. Your actual profits may be higher or lower depending on your actual kc/hour, your group size and luck.

    5-man is a very common group size for killing the Nightmare; however, smaller group sizes are possible and will achieve similar profit. Although the kills per hour will be lower, the chance of an individual party member receiving a drop is greater. All profit from The Nightmare comes from the unique drops, whereby the staff, mace and armour table has a 1/120 chance to roll per kill, and the orb table a 1/600 chance per kill. When either of these tables are rolled, a random party member is chosen to receive the drop, weighted by the total damage dealt by each party member.

    The chance of receiving a drop from either of these tables per kill is 1%, or 0.75% excluding the Nightmare Staff
