  4. Go to the right-hand end of the square (where the Hunter Set/Top Hat are located) and the Lesser Amygdala will grab you. This will take you to the new area: The Hunter’s Nightmare

        This DLC is already irritating me. Not because of the difficulty, but because I can't seem to find the item I need to get in the Hunter's Dream in order to even access the DLC in the first place. I killed Vicar Amelia and I interacted with the skull right after doing so. I go back to the Hunter's Dream and the item isn't anywhere to be found. I've read it supposed to be right next to the doll, but it's not there. I've tried looking around the dream itself and again, it's nowhere to be found. Is there something I'm missing or is the game just being stupid and deciding to keep the item from me for no apparent reason? I seriously would appreciate the assistance.

          Hi all,
          My question is:
          I have played the GOTY edition, but I don't have it anymore. If I get the normal one that does not have DLC included - will I be able to use my old save data?
          Thank you!

            Bought the DLC before starting the game, and tried to find as much as I could without consulting the wiki----I've been back to that area a dozen or more times exploring, and nothing. Either my character keeps missing the spot by virtual inches, or that Amygdala couldn't care less about getting me where I need to go... Hmm, maybe I should try Make Contact... Or "mooning" it if that doesn't work...
