Summon Nightmare Stalkers


The Nightmare of Ky'leks, the Docked is the Nightmare of a Scorn Abomination that can appear at the Royal Pools area aboard the Derelict Leviathan.[1]


The Nightmare of Ky'leks is one of the potential high-value target that can randomly spawn in the Royal Pools area of the Derelict Leviathan.

When a message that reads "A high-value target is nearby," it means there is a chance that the Abomination is roaming the surrounding area. They will arrive on opposite side to where you enter from the Castellum, so make your way there to see it was the target you were looking for. This Nightmare is constantly walking, pelting any targets with its powerful Overchaged Ether blasts. Getting too close to the Abomination will prompt it to use its powerful Ground Slam, which can knock players back several feet. The Nightmare of Ky'leks will make its way around the Royal Pools area, whilst summoning Elite Nightmare Stalkers for backup as it goes. Killing these enemies will make them drop Unstable Essence, which will allow you to deal extra damage to the boss quicker. If you do not finish off the target fast enough, though, it will depart from the area. If you are successful in defeating the Nightmare before it despawns, you will be rewarded with a chest for you to collect loot from. You will also complete one of the requirements for the 'Get to Taking Out Their Commanders, One by One' Triumph, which requires you to eliminate both the Nightmare of Ky'leks and the other potential target in the Royal Pools: the Nightmare of Evoks, the Burned.


  • The Triumph that requires you to kill the two high-value targets in the Royal Pools,'Get to Taking Out Their Commanders, One by One,' is a reference to a quote from Commander Zavala in Destiny that has reached meme status within the community.[2]
