Bonjour James, avoir besoin de / rêver de

Je rêve de cartes au trésor I dream of treasure maps

→ not specific 

Je rêve des cartes au trésor = I dream of the treasure maps

→ specific maps / des = de + les

Here are two links on a similar question:

j-ai-besoin-de-temps-pour-reflechir

when-to-use-des

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
