It seems like I’m doing a fair amount of the rest action in my first few plays so far. Hard to do cool stuff in the game without incurring nightmare and therefore having to clean it off. Am I missing other ways of cleaning nightmare?

While I’m here, is the detective office the only way to get rid of taint?

Thanks all!

There are some powers and artifacts that remove Taint too (I think: I'll check the cards later)

After you fail a nightmare test, an enemy is spawned and then your nightmare goes back to zero. So that is one way to get rid of nightmare.

There is at least one animus that benefits from having a high nightmare (the monster hunter). His level 3 ability gives a damage bonus equal to his nightmare.

Ah ha! I totally missed that sentence in the rulebook. I wasn't resetting nightmare after nightmare tests, resulting in kind of a slog. Thank you, can't wait to try again.

One quick thing: The rulebook formatting is a bit odd in the nightmare section, but there is a clarification here in the forums that you only resent nightmare to zero if you fail a nightmare test (not every nightmare test).

Yep, that will definitely help. I rarely worry about nightmare unless there are too many beasts in the board.

Thing is if there are a few on the board you can get battered pretty quickly and if you drop your guard you can get overcome pretty quickly
