    It'd be awesome if monsters could spawn teleporters/caves, similar to the way that Leprechauns did in this past St. Patty's day event. Instead of holiday specific prizes, maybe a chance to get that monsters statue?

    I think it would take a lot of the monotony out of grinding.

    Yeah anything that encourages exploration and more roaming of the world would be awesome.

    Even spicing up random camp spawns would be nice.

    I created and was bumping a thread about this in the dev forum for years but I don't see it happening.

    I briefly talked with Telamon on IRC, and the issue with caves and instances is space and the fact that they need to get created by hand...hence the limited number of them.

    I was hoping it was possible to just sporadically change the spawn type in the leprechaun caves. So, for example, if you'd been farming gargoyles, there's a chance that one would open a gate to a gargoyle populated cave.

    Yeah I mean it's a great idea, the caves.

    The other guy mentioned NPC camps (orcs, lizardmen etc.) so I wanted to address that specifically since it's the best (some would say only good) idea I've ever had (adding bosses to normal NPC camps).

    However TELAMON's best idea, since I've been here (May 2015), was the Leprechaun caves. So I agree, that model should probably be used all year. Great for PvM, great for PvP.
