- Combat Level: It’s advisable to have a combat level of at least 100, with higher stats for better chances of success.
- Prayer Level: A Prayer level of 70 or higher is recommended, as you’ll rely heavily on Protect from Melee and other prayers during the fight.
- Gear: Opt for high-tier gear, including Barrows equipment, the best-in-slot items, and, if possible, Inquisitor’s armor.

Mechanics of the Fight
Phosani’s Nightmare has a set of unique mechanics that you must understand to succeed:
- Sleepwalk: Periodically, Phosani will put players to sleep, immobilizing them. To break free, players must click rapidly and rotate the camera.
- Nightmare Zone: The fight takes place in a nightmare zone that periodically damages players. Staying mobile and using protection prayers is crucial to mitigate this damage.
- Elders and Poxes: Throughout the fight, Elders and Poxes will spawn. Kill Elders as soon as possible to prevent them from healing Phosani, and prioritize Poxes to avoid taking excessive damage.
Here’s a step-by-step strategy for defeating Phosani’s Nightmare:
- Protect from Melee: Begin the fight by activating Protect from Melee to reduce the damage from Phosani’s attacks.
- Constant Movement: Always stay on the move to avoid taking too much damage from the nightmare zone. Phosani’s attacks are most dangerous when she’s in her nightmare phase.
- Focus on Elders and Poxes: As Elders and Poxes spawn, prioritize them over Phosani. Elders should be killed quickly to prevent healing, and Poxes should be taken out to minimize incoming damage.
- Prayer Management: Keep a close eye on your prayer points. Prayer potions and other prayer-restoring items are essential for surviving the fight.
- Spec Attacks: Use your special attack weapon during the fight to maximize damage output.
- Food and Healing: Bring ample food to sustain yourself throughout the battle. Saradomin brews and anglerfish are excellent choices.
- Communication: If you’re fighting in a group, clear communication is key. Assign roles and ensure everyone understands their responsibilities.
