The Nightmare of Anaphex, Sworn to Otzot is the Nightmare of a powerful Psion Flayer and devotee of Freeborn Otzot. It can be encountered as a final boss of the Nightmare Containment Public Event on board the Derelict Leviathan.[1]


The Nightmare of Anaphex can appear every three weeks as the featured Tier 3 boss of the Nightmare Containment Public Event, which takes place in the Castellum on the Derelict Leviathan.

After the first two tiers of the event have finished, participants must head to the large gates on the side of the area opposite to the spawn point. There, you must plant the Nightmare Harvester to begin the final boss encounter, and the Nightmare of Anaphex will spawn with several reinforcements. The Psion brings a Projection Rifle into battle, capable of firing explosive projectiles that travel long distances. Getting too close will cause it to unleash a powerful psionic blast from its hand, which will send you flying backwards into the air. As a Void Flayer, the Nightmare of Anaphex also possesses an ability of Niruul, the Hollow Voice: that being to unleash a shock wave that causes Guardians to become detained in spherical prisons, holding them in place and making them easier targets. To free yourself, or other players, shooting any of the large, white orbs forming these cages will disable them, which can be done from both the inside and outside.

Once the Nightmare of Anaphex has lost a third of its health, it will become invincible and teleport out of the battlefield. Following this, an orbital bombardment will commence, and missiles will begin raining done on the area. In order to progress the fight, participants must first take out the three Dread Bearer Psions that spawn. Successfully eliminating one will cause an Egregore Atavist to appear in its place, which you must then kill. After all three of each have been defeated, the Nightmare of Anaphex will reemerge and you may resume damaging it. You will have to repeat this process a second time after taking out another third of the boss's health, which will cause it to retreat once again. If you are able to defeat the Nightmare before the time runs out and the event finishes automatically, you will powerful gear from the opulent chest that spawns, as well as loot that drops from the Harvester.
