    Details:
    Place a troll totem level 2 to a troll dungeon room and then turn on the adventure mode. Enter the dungeon again and the first troll take a long time to spawn.
    Sometimes the troll level 1 totem may take a long time to spawn the first troll. Other troll in the same room may stop spawning for a long time too.

    That's not surprising since it could be exploited if mobs spawned instantly after placing a totem.

    placing a totem has to be done in deco mode. you then have to go out and switch the modes and re-enter. not exactly instant.

    You missed the point. How long does it take you to place it and switch modes? And is it not a lot faster than the usual respawn time?

    I am not sure how the respawn work. But I have seen others' lich room. The lich spawn immediately entering the dungeon. And those lich respawn as fast as the original scene.

    Actually, nothing has changed with spawn if you are alone, dunno, if it's affected by others entering your dungeon.
    Tested in the dungeon that was not changed for days. Enter - kill - exit - enter - all mobs are there.
    Guess, not totem related...

    I have placed a new lich room and a new troll totem. Then I enter the dungeon in adventure mode. I went AFK for half an hour but no mob was spawning.

    I have placed a new troll totem. Then I enter the dungeon in adventure mode. I went AFK for half an hour but no mob was spawning. No mob in lich room as well. I am in a party and as a party leader as well. Just wonder if it is a bug related to a party or the dungeon.

    The troll initial spawn is very slow.

    The trolls also spawn at different rates: small trolls spawn first, enforcers later and less frequency.

    Sometimes they respawn all together - sometimes just one small troll.

    In the level 2 troll encounter, Torc spawns very rarely. I played a few respawns last night and Torc didn't show up at all - not initially and not in 2 subsequent respawns. (3 rounds in 20 minutes is prety awful.)

    UPDATE: Torc seems to be spawning more readily and more regularly today (4/19)

    This compares very badly with the Lich totem that initially spawns instantly and respawns very quickly. Also, when the lich boss doesn't spawn, he's replaced by a mundane alternative. (Lich Temple - Fall) Troll doesn't seeem to replace Torc with an alternative troll.

    Tier 3 Troll opinion:

    Apologies to the OP for piggy-backing his thread, but I wanted to give my opinion of the tier 3 troll totem.

    Since Player-Made Dungeons are a new thing, we only know whether they are functioning normally based on comparisons and "the feels," so I think it fair to judge the tier 2 troll by comparing it to the tier 1 and tier 3.

    I'd like to say that tier 3 is the best so far in terms of spawn timing - some trolls spawn instantly (front of the room), other spawn shortly thereafter (mid and back of the room), and the boss comes shortly after that. I suspect that there is some randomization to the spawn timers, but this has been the case each time for initial spawn (first time loading the dungeon in the session).

    Bravo for tier 3 :)
