I know in TSW they used to be in other zone maps, and it was changed in SWL so it was easier to access them. I’m okay with that.
but instead of just using a portal to another part of agartha (that changes depending on the event) why not make it so the portal supposedly teleports us to the zone maps (by creating a small copy of a subzone of the maps) and make us fight there?
like for the halloween megaevent, make the portal teleport us to a copy of the zone where it appeared in TSW, the big tree in Kingsmouth town. and other zones for other events. Even for the anniversary golems they could use different zones between them too. Never played the event in TSW so i don’t know where they were located.
It makes much more sense (lore wise) to have a portal teleport us to the zone where the monster is, than a random monster appearing in the middle of Agartha, conveniently in a zone you can only get by a portal. doesn’t feel like it’s a threat at all, feels like a huge piñata.
Of course for summoned bosses it could be still in agartha, since it’s the characters that summon them where they are.
What do you think? Am I the only one who finds it very anticlimatic?
