Hunt The Nightmare of Omnigul

The quest begins with you just near the Temple of Crota where you will need to proceed with fighting past a group of enemies.

After you have defeated the group of enemies (which includes an Ogre) a barrier towards the inside of the temple will disappear, allowing you to enter.

There will be multiple rooms that you will need to enter and you will need to clear them before proceeding to the final room.

As you proceed to the last room, there will be an altar and as soon as you approach it, The Nightmare of Omnigul, Will of Crota will spawn into the area.

Fight the enemies so that you can harm the Nightmare and continue doing so until you deplete its health completely.

Nightmare Hunt: Anguish Rewards

Completing the Nightmare Hunt: Anguish will reward you with the Essence of Anguish which needs to be cleansed to grant you a piece of gear.

Once this mission has been completed, quest step 5 of the Legacy: Shadowkeep quest will be completed and you may proceed with the next one.


  • The Hive enemies in this mission can be deadly, even for those who are equipped with good gear, make use of your surroundings to stay safe.
  • Watch out for the Nightmare Thralls as they can slow you down and prevent you from making use of your jump maneuvers, making you vulnerable to the other enemies.
  • You will be able to damage The Nightmare of Omnigul, Will of Crota after she spawns but afterward, you will need to defeat enemies before damaging her again.


The hunt for The Nightmare of Omnigul is over, and she has been taken care of, for now but you will be seeing her soon as she will emerge later on.

It is known now that you will have to obtain more of the Essences to obtain a full set of the Dreambane Armor, which you will need to enter the Pyramid.

Eris Morn speaks with you and requests that you update her as you both will discover the secrets of the Pyramid together.
