A multiplayer duelling arena - possibly integrating with clan support, so players can form teams, and then have massive multiway wars!
Wilderness castle areas for special team playing killing wars.
Randomly generated scenarios, where a new adventure is generated for you and your friends each time you go on it. Form an adventuring party and go on your own personal quest.
