I like cavern levels

I've seen so many posts over the year of how cavern levels are too dangerous, not worth exploring, are just levels to skip. This does not match my own experience. I think caverns are literally the safest level for any character diving hard & with access to mapping, light rays & other core util. I find the loot to risk ratio of these levels to be much better then a standard level. These levels seem to be fantastic breathers (as in relaxing, not the other kind) for a character well below safe depth.

I don't enjoy cavern levels as much as the other levels, but I don't have anything against them and they add flavour.

I think for me they just aren't as interesting to explore. It might be better if Light Area worked a little more effectively too

Ive never found anything good in them, drop-wise. I dont know if they have less loot allocation or what, but in my experience they are not worth as much as a regular level.
We're talking about the BIG cave levels here; the one that has few, large caves, and occasionally a tiny part of dungeon on the corner. Not the ones which are zig-zag thin cave-like corridors.
