The Crystal Nightmare is the sixth and final dungeon in Recettear and contains all of the best equipment that is required for Fusion.


To unlock it, you must clear Lapis Ruins. Unlike the other dungeons there is no announcement that a new dungeon has been discovered, it is simply there when you next enter the 'select dungeon' page.

Dungeon Crawling

The Crystal Nightmare differs to the previous dungeons. It has 4 stages:

  • 1-10
  • 11-20
  • 21-30
  • Boss Rush

(As of v1.108) Each stage does not have to be cleared first to unlock the next one. There are no bosses within the normal dungeon which consists of 29 very large floors with an exit door on the 10th, 20th and 30th floors. The 30th floor contains no enemies and reward chests proportional to the number of floors that have been cleared in a row: clearing 21-30F results in one chest, clearing 11-30F results in two chests, and 1-30F results in three chests. Nearly all floors have a negative effect, and floors never have a positive effect.

Enemies increase in level significantly as you progress through the floors compared with other dungeons which combined with the 10 levels between exit doors can make for a very long trip that can easily kill the unprepared adventurer. This level progression is the same as the bosses listed below. Conversely, since the later levels are much harder than the early ones, once one is able to clear levels 21-30, it may be worth doing levels 1-30 in one go. Since the earlier levels will require far less food, this will result in more reward chests for only a little additional risk. If one is collecting items along the way inventory space will become an issue, so this is mostly an endgame tactic when doing reward chest runs for rare items.

Boss Rush

The Crystal Nightmare boss rush consists of 30 levels, with 60F containing 3 equipment chests with chances of very rare items. This boss rush pits you against every boss in the game at higher and higher levels, with the majority of the bosses dropping a very rare piece of equipment used in Level 5 Fusion recipes. All of these items possess very strong bonuses to their primary stat with the majority suffering significant penalties to any of the other 3. All items can have a bonus modifier up to +4.
