Nightmare Whimsyshire

Posts: 107
Anyone able to unlock this in nightmare/hell. Just finished nightmare last night and went to the location like in normal and got no quest. My friends and i went through the normal version killing/looting everything to see if you had to kill something or find something to unlock the harder difficulties but we couldn't find anything.

I've herd various rumors about there being different staves for each difficulty can anyone confirm this or provide personal experience on how to get into nightmare and beyond?

Thank you

I'd like to know also ... do I need to unlock Whimsyshire on each difficulty? Or just once for all four difficulties.

Do I get different exp amounts for each type of Whimsyshire I enter?
When does the exp from ponyland become not worth it?

I know its early and these questions may take a week or so to answer but thought I;d throw them out there because people will eventually ask.

I can answer that you need to unlock Whimsyshire for each difficulty, because I can't do it on Nightmare, only on Normal.. but what I need to know is.. do I need a new book?

Well in the Wiki there's a page on crafting things, and there's 3 different plans.
Hellish, Infernal, and Nightmarish staves of herding. So I assume you need to get each of em.

k. I've killed izaul about 11 times and still don't have the plans. I'm so good at it I can do a run in under 6 minutes with my spirit walk ... so frustrating it wont drop

The nightmare plans are sold from the quartermaster in Act IV

I have no idea where the hellish plans are.

I'm hoping I didnt get the plans the first time i played, then accidentally sell it.
Is that possible as to why I am not able to find the plans from izual?

Dont know if this well help or if its been resolved BUT! Here is the guide I used to help me out.

To do this on further difficulties, go to Act 4 and buy the plans for the Nightmarish, Hellish, or Inferno version of the staff.

List of items required:
Black Mushroom - Act 1 Cathedral
Leoric's Shinbone - Act 1 Leoric's Manor in the fireplace
Liquid Rainbow - Act 2 Dhalgur Oasis, talk to alchemist
Gibbering Gemstone - Act 3 Caverns of Frost Level 2 from Chiltara
Wirt's Bell - Act 2 from Squirt the Peddler (100k gold)
Plans: Staff of Herding - Act 4 from Izual

To get the nightmare version of the staff. You need to beat the game on on NM. Then goto act IV, and the Quartermaster there will sell the recipe for 1 gold. After that use it on your blacksmith. It costs 200k to make the NM version of the staff.

Just finished Normal mode last night. To unlock Nightmare you need to get the staff of herding, then go to Act 4 town (Same as Act 3) But it has to be during act 4 that the Quartermaster on the right side sells you the pattern for the Nightmare Staff of Herding for 1 gold. Which you then teach to the blacksmith and pay 200k for the upgrade. Once you have the Nightmarish Staff of Herding you take it to the same spot, and open up Nightmare Unicorns.
