"You were bred to be a sorrow-bearer. I seek a Hive commander, but those are not so readily available. So I made you."
Emperor Calus

The Nightmare of Gahlran, Sorrow Bearer is a powerful Nightmare manifested form of Gahlran, the Sorrow-Bearer that serves as the first boss of the Duality Dungeon.[1]


The Nightmare of Gahlran roams the lower section of his arena's Nightmare Realm. He will initially be protected by his Nightmare Immunity, and attack any Guardian he comes across alongside the hordes of Legionaries he periodically summons. He can move through the whole lower section, including near the lower bell, but cannot enter the Standard Bearer rooms, or jump to the elevated section (though his reinforcements can). To make the Nightmare damageable, players will have to collect two Standards from the Standard Bearers in the Nightmare, place them in the Waking World, enter the rooms that open up, and then go back to the Nightmare and kill the Visions of Gahlran that lurk in there.

Once both sides are cleaned up, Gahlran will become vulnerable and teleport to the middle of the arena. He will become much more aggressive, rushing down players with multiple attacks, and will also move around a lot, making it hard to land shots consistently. Once the Bells are rung again, the players will be transported to the Waking World, the Nightmare will become invulnerable again, and the cycle must be repeated, until he is finally slain.
