WoW Secrets community on Discord discovered the secret Lucid NightmareLucid Nightmare mount.

Lucid NightmareLucid Nightmare is a new secret mount added in Patch 7.3 that drops from Puzzler's Desire. It's very similar to the Riddler's Mind-WormRiddler's Mind-Worm riddle of Patch 7.2, discovered by the WoW Secrets community on Discord. Past discoveries of the community include Sun Darter HatchlingSun Darter Hatchling pet and recently they discovered, how Hunters can tame Panthara pets.

Lucid Nightmare Mount Preview

Lucid NightmareLucid Nightmare is a ground mount that can be unlocked, once the riddle is complete. Yesterday, the community found the final clue and players were able to get their mount.

How to Get The Mount (Updated)

Clue 1

Go to Dalaran (50.73, 54.07) and click the Inconspicuous Note on the table (upstairs). It reads:

"It begins in the 2104059.

With a most pleasing sign.

(These letters will not always rhyme.)"

2104059 is the anagram for Ulduar's release date.

Clue 2

Take the Dalaran portal to Shrine in Pandaria and from there to old Dalaran. Enter Ulduar and defeat the first two bosses - Flame Leviathan and XT-002 Deconstructor. After dealing with the annoying trash, go to 45, 12 and pull the Rusty Lever on the robot's head.

This will spawn a 20x20 maze that needs to be solved. Players can interact with the lights and turn them green. You need to create the "Pleasing Sign" mentioned in the first clue.

Start by creating a cross and then adjust the lights according to the following the screenshot posted by WoW Secrets member Pudschu#2779.

Once completed, the maze will disappear and a new Inconspicuous Note will spawn in the center of the room.

It reads:

"1000 years imprisoned.

Surely it wears on the mind."

Clue 3

The next clue is located in Temple of Ahn'Qiraj in the final room after C'thun (43, 64). Viscidus can be a nightmare, but as an Elemental Shaman, it is enough to spam Frost ShockFrost Shock until Viscidus gets frozen (pay attention to the chat), then, summon your Earth ElementalEarth Elemental, lust and melee with The Fist of Ra-denThe Fist of Ra-den until the boss dies. Clear the whole Temple and go to (43, 64). You will find a Mind Larva on the table. Clicking it will begin a "Bejeweled game". When completed, a new Inconspicuous Note will spawn near the Mind Larva.

It reads:

"Deeper than deep.

Awaits your seat."

Clue 4

Take the Dalaran portal to Orgrimmar / Stormwind and go to Cataclysm portals and port to Deepholm. Go to the cave at 57, 24.

Enter it, go past the worm. You will get dismounted first, but note that you are able to mount again in the worm room, so there's no need to hide.

WoWScrnShot_090117_151313.jpg

Turn right and go to 63.83, 22.44, where you come across a Dark Fissure.

WoWScrnShot_090117_151517.jpg

Selecting the dialog option will display the following warning:

"You are about to fall into a dark fissure. You may not be able to climb back out again. Are you very sure you want to do this?"

You will now enter a cave with a chair and a skull that cannot be interacted with.

WoWScrnShot_090117_151547.jpg

A Dingy Plaque is attached to the chair with a hint:

"<The plaque is old and barely legible.

You can only make out fragments of each line of text.>

Supremacy?

Get...

Shirk...

...eke..."

It took a while to solve the anagram, but it's absolutely necessary to mention an epic meme from WoW Secrets Discord:

A really cool reference is that the clue: "get, shirk, eke" from the plaque is an anagram for "irk the geeks" and there are different variations of the text for every localization. At first, the community tried to add letters to the clue to interact with the strange skull, but to no avail.

The solution was "Racksum Greep is the key". Racksum Greep can be found in Ratchet at around 70, 70. Blizzard went extremely sneaky here, because instead of adding a new NPC, they replaced the skin of an existing one (note the id = 13602 and wowdb not listing the mob under "added in 7.3" filters).

WoWScrnShot_090117_185252.jpg

Racksum Greep wears a Shadoweave MaskShadoweave Mask and you will need one in order to interact with the Strange Skull in the Deepholm cave. Muffinus confirmed on Twitter that Pattern: Shadoweave MaskPattern: Shadoweave Mask is obtainable and you can make a lot of gold by selling Shadoweave MaskShadoweave Masks in the coming days.

This is amazing. I'm not sure what I'm more impressed by; Blizzard's creativity and sneakiness or the community's combined minds to unbend it!

I'd have to say both and I think they feed off of one another. Blizzard keeps getting sneakier but the community still figures it out which makes Blizzard try even sneakier stuff.

Pretty awesome and great fun in my way of thinking.

      Players have been comparing the Netherlight Crucible to Reforging and Ornyx sat down with the development team to answer some of the concerns.
      TL;DR
      Reforging was a simple and mechanical choice of replacing worst stats with best stats on every item. The Crucible is only affecting a small subset of items offering more varied situations than reforging 30 Hit into Haste. Respeccing Crucible traits is generally a bad idea, because players would be able to pick traits based on perfect optimization for any given situation during raid progression. Relics become Soulbound on inspection to avoid everyone porting in and out of raid to pass the relic around to see who it's best for. You can learn more about the Netherlight Crucible in our guide.

      Hey guys!

      We’ve been seeing a lot of discussion going back and forth on the Crucible lately, so we’ve had some conversations with the development team and I wanted to pop in and share a few points that came out of it.

      Regarding comparisons to Reforging – Reforging was always a simple, mechanical choice. Players were, at the end of the day, simply replacing their worst stats with best stats on every item that didn’t already have your best stats up to a mechanical limit. The Crucible, by comparison, is only affecting a small subset of items and presents much more varied situations than say “change 30 Hit Chance into Haste”.

      We’ve also seen a bit of discussion around players desiring the ability to respec the Traits that are locked on the second and third tiers of relics. We feel that the ability to respect Traits would lead to players picking traits based on perfect optimization for any given situation, which could lead to players leaving a raid to change to AoE-centric traits for the next fight during raid progression. While we feel that’s a nuisance in itself, this would also make the system feel like a watered-down version of talent rows, and would undermine the choice that is made when selecting your Relic Traits.

      That being said, Relics are items and will be replaced; we do expect players to make choices and experiment with this system. Since there is still new content ahead of us in Antorus, better Relics will be available and players who make choices they may not like now will have the opportunity to get new Relics before long with a potentially new set of Trait choices.

      As a note, we are also fine with the current state that Relics Soulbind on inspection in the Crucible. We believe the alternative of everyone porting in and out of the raid to pass the relic around and see who it’s best for is far, far worse. Players are smart and will be able to make educated decisions based on the information that’s available to them. As I said, we do expect experimentation however.

      A final note: I saw the post on Reddit laying out three choices for Relics, asking players which one they would pick -
      Relic A : 930 Ilvl BiS main trait, 3rd BiS bonus trait, but forces worst tier 2 crucible trait Relic B : 915 ilvl BiS main and bonus trait and 2nd BiS crucible tier 2 trait Relic C : 940 ilvl 2nd and 4th BiS traits and BiS crucible tier 2 trait. The poster responded by saying the only way to know is to sim it. If you’re generally a player who simulates gear upgrades to make decisions, you’re probably going to do that anyway, and that’s fine. If you’re a player going off basic guidelines such as “I play a fire mage so I want Critical Strike” you will get by as you always do in this situation and pick what you think is best for your particular class or spec. 

      Thanks for all the feedback on the topic so far, I’ll be on the lookout for future discussions, as always.
