I understand you think that running int brush helps counteract it, but thats not viable.

1. if this monster respawns in the middle of a team fight which team or champ does it attack first. Or even better why does it attack without reason.

2. does this monster provide any special buff or immense gold for the inconvenience of it being in the most common route around the map.

I would personally like to see another monster but one that isn't able to change the course of a game. maybe add a monster or allow all jungle monsters to give you buffs like increased vision or stealth detection or attack speed.
The team member that has the longest in river time! Come on how hard can that be to understand! Its a river monster that is sort of like an unseen troll! Hint gotta pay the toll to the troll!

sounds like the monster from amnesia: the dark descent.
It would be awesome but unbalanceable

Along with the fact that it will show itself giving you time to get out of the river before it attacks! Say you are being chased you could be in the river long enough for river monster to show then when you leave the river it'll be attacking your enemy instead of YOU! GEEZ people is it so hard for you to grasp this concept? Also each concurrent bush patch will restart your time in the river! Can't be that hard to veil yourself and use the full aspects of the game!
I love the idea of a wandering monster but the river is the worst place for it. If you pull dragon and a team fight breaks out all of a sudden there are two neutral monsters bashing you in the face and the enemy team to boot. also, if you are going to baron and you are sitting in the river waiting for you team then all of a sudden a nasty river monster is eating your back while baron is munching your face

No guys if you want to baron or dragon it would force you to hunt down said monster first and then kill baron or dragon on the respawn or have a team mate solo it else where. It would provide a bit of communication rather than just a ping in the general direction, you actually have to stratergize to get dragon or baron killing this monster also had cons because in its respawn timer the enemy can take dragon or baron with relative ease but the rewards for killing it could be something like river is fully visible for 2 or so minutes or river is toxic to all enemy champions and they take 0.5% damage per second making location for team fights more strategic.

Guys this would be a more strategic monster. It could require more communication differentiating good teams from great teams. In order to get dragon or baron you would have to eliminate this monster and kill dragon or baron on the respawn timer.This would help prevent the level 4 solo junglers taking dragon giving an advantage to whoever can communicate better.

This monster could give buffs focused on a location and utility buff. Ideas that come to mind can be full vision of river for a set ammount of time, another idea that comes to mind is increased gold gain and experience gain, my final idea is a toxic water that damages enemy champions in the river dealing 0.5% damage per second.

I feel that this will be a monster that is sought out every time its up. especially early game where gold and expierience are hard to come by so as long as a team has good communication this monster should add teamwork to the game because right now people just ping a cave and say "dragon" or "baron", to desperate teams it may involve their amumu tank to tank baron and their warwick jungler to attack the river monster. This can reward well communicated teams with gold, expierience, half of the map dominance and likely a large sum of gold from dragon and maybe a baron buff.
