Is there a monster den template? Like the fast travel icon here.

Leshen?[edit source]

First time I played through the game I faced a Leshen in here. I ran through the poisoned hallway, it came after me, and somehow died to the poison. Earlier I had explored the hilltop area around the caves, and a leshen assaulted me. It was red skulled and scary, so I ran and rolled like hell to get out of it with my life intact. Since it was in the same-ish area, I assumed it was the same leshen, and perhaps something had gone wonky since it probably ran after me for a while.

New game, *without* said exploring and triggering of the leshen, and up comes this quest. I go through the cave and run through the poisoned hallway, and what meets me on the other end? A level 20 red-skulled leshen (I was level 10-11, and this time on death march). Help! I run out again, through the poison. At some point I dared to go in through the poison again, and faced up with the ekimmara. Thankfully no leshen. Maybe it spawned back to the top of the hill or something.

However, what the hell happened here? Is this supposed to happen, or is it a bug of some sort? This is a level 11 quest/item, so that's when most people will do it. A level 20-ish leshen will obviously be nigh on unkillable (given how the game deals with overleveled/red-skull enemies). Therefore I suspect this is a bug, that really ought to have been patched out ages ago, but I can't see that happening now. — Pangaearocks (talk) 22:27, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

I don't remember Leshen in the grotto itself, but I've encountered one in the nearby woods, and also had to run away due to it having much higher level at the time I was there. So may be Leshen simply can wonder into the caves randomly? I think they also might have an ability to teleport. — Gilrond (talk) 01:27, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
They are able to teleport, which is probably why it ends up in the grotto. I would think that shouldn't be possible though, or that's the behaviour I would expect -- especially considering this is a "low"-level quest. CDPR should have put restrictions in place so that leshens can't spawn into caves - either in general or for this quest/area. I was lucky in both these cases (died to poison, disappeared again), but if that hadn't happened it would have been impossible to complete the quest. Surprised it hasn't happened to others/you since I've seen it several times, but maybe I was merely extremely unlucky. I don't run into many what I would called serious bugs (it's an excellent game in this regard too), but this is one of them, whether it's labelled bug or unintended behaviour or something akin to that. — Pangaearocks (talk) 10:46, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
