Hi,

There was a Nightmare flying about in low-sec where our FW fleet was last night, what exactly is a Nightmare? I can't find it in the items database.

A Nightmare is a faction battleship, it's very expensive, don't expect to get a hold of one below 500million, and even then, the seller must be really desperate to seel that low.

It need both Caldari and Amarr battleship skills to use, it shield tanks like a beast and uses lasers with a 100% damage boost.
It's essentially like a marauder, but you can fly it much sooner.

Edit for extra info:
It's a Sansha faction battleship. You can't buy it on the market, only via a contract/direct trade.

Also there are more faction battleships like the nightmare (which is the sansha version btw).

This website has a nice collection of faction ship screenshots:

It's a pirate (Sansha) Battleship. Cross between Amarr and Caldari designs basically. It's an energy turret boat.

Good luck finding it for anywhere near 500 mil, I usually see them for 900mil++

(I will buy nightmares at 600 mil in a heartbeat though)

A nightmare is locking your car keys in your car before a really important interview...

On freighter escort duty in low sec and the freighter jumps before you can check the other side, and you get screwed with a session change timer.

The nightmare would be that the freighter has all your stuff in it.

To be honest, you'd be getting scammed UNLESS that CNR comes fitted with a full set of faction gear.

You can buy a CNR for 450 million or so these days, and a set of 7 faction launchers is only 250mil on top of that. A T2 fitted rokh is less than 200 million isk.

Here's the deal with the nightmare - if you're scared of what might happen to it in a mission (and for the love of GOD if you managed to grind out a billion isk or so to get the thing you've probably run a LOT of missions by now), have a few corp mates (even newbies in BC's) escourt you on a few missions until you get the feel for it. Honestly, if you're running aganst sansha/blood/drones you won't have any problem whatsoever. The tank is sturdy and the firepower is absolutely soul crushing. Once you run a few missions you'll see you have nothing to worry about - dead rats can't hurt you afterall, and there a few ships better suited to leaving a trail of NPC wrecks.
