I love the synergy between this and Triple Shot! Ironboot 10:49, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

I was just pondering that very synergy. Put the entire Nightmare Weapon effect into a single target at once. 12 channeling turns that one attack into 126 life gone, right through protection and damage reduction skills enemy rits and monks might use to make your day more annoying. Put a 5 person team together to use this skill pair and you can take out a 630 health target in one volley. Plus it would probably look like that scene from the Jet Li movie "Hero". 22:39, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Lifesteal always 10...52...50?[edit]

Lets say I have a Me/W with a Scythe, will he deal ~9 damage less, but steal a constant number of e.g. 52? —ZerphatalkThe Improver 19:45, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

True, lifesteal is independent of reduced damage. - User HeWhoIsPale sig.PNG HeWhoIsPale 19:53, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
wow cool, thanks :) well i was not sure because of the "...up to...". Ok, ill try to create some crappy build that utilises Artificer's Insignias^^ —ZerphatalkThe Improver 20:13, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
The "up to" part is in the descriptions of Life Stealing skills because you can't steal life a target doesn't have. For example, if you have 16 Blood Magic and use Vampiric Gaze against a target who only has 30 Health, the target will lose 63 Health, but you'll only gain 30 Health rather than 63. -- Gordon Ecker 11:05, 17 November 2007 (UTC)
Just to note, a Me/W is going to have trouble casting this spell ;) SarielV 20 x 20px 05:09, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Does the life steal from this stack with Vampiric Assault?--Fallen 00:20, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

yep, the lifesteal aspect of vampiric assault is unaffected by the damage reduction of this skill, so you'll get a big chunk of lifesteal. --Ckal Ktak 13:29, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Did anyone else expierenced that heroes wont use this skill at all? --Poorfool 14:52, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Well, my Pyre (R/RT) uses this on me instead of himself. (its a barrage ranger)

i know im a noob[edit]

but i just have to ask, if i use barrage with this will it affect all six arrows? because they fire at once? or no? what about volley??

Nope. Read the description on Barrage's page. →[ »Halogod User Halogod35 Sig.png (talk ]← 06:10, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

RA for the lols[edit]

met a guy the other day who was using NmW and Conjure Nightmare because "they have synergy! NmW will do more damage if the person is having a nightmare." (insert me facepalming.)-- 18:53, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

When do Enemies use this?[edit]

I was in Nahpui one time, and I was testing out several builds to farm feathers, when at some times they wouldn't use this ,and in other times they would. So I just wanted to know when the NPCs or whatever you call them put this on allies. Than 21:21, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Whether they're attacking or not, I suppose. The Star Tengu also have Wailing Weapon, which they always appear to prioritize over this. So the reason they might not be using it right away is because they want to use it on the ally that's under Wailing - so they wait until that's duration is over (instead of just putting it on another attacker). But yeah, the Afflicted and Stars both appear to cast this on allies that are attacking with no other weapon spells. User Bathory Spirit to Flesh.jpg Bathory talk 03:18, 23 June 2009 (UTC)


This now steals the life for you, instead of the ally you've cast it on. ((They hit, you steal X life). Unless it was changed in the update, although I don't remember any Weapon Spell effects being changed, just durations. So... Adding bug tag. User Bathory Spirit to Flesh.jpg Bathory talk 05:52, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Bug fixed, tag removed. User Bathory Spirit to Flesh.jpg Bathory talk 03:16, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Changed the bug note, as I've done some testing. It reduced the damage of all physical buffs, but not elemental or damage in a different packet.


i wanted to see if i could make some build that used this to heal kinda so i had 100 blades, sun and moon slash, and this, used 100b then this then sams and it didn't heal at all, and it went guessing its not supposed to do that but yea it didAurenX 21:16, 21 November 2009 (UTC)


Not sure why no one has noted this already, but this skill is a great counter to Empathy, especially against hex heavy mobs. Nightmare Weapon counters both the health loss and damage reduction of Empathy, and allows the healers to take care of other hexes. Lord Flynt (talk) 07:48, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
