So with the addition of random bosses, I read it as there would be the chance of a boss that is not the standard one. I just ran the Labyrinth and got Aequitas AND Rex...is that what's supposed to happen? Are there now multiple bosses for hard dungeons?

Just read the description of the dungeons. On the labyrinth it says:
Bosses:
-Rex (Nose Ring)
-Random

That means simply that there is rex and another random boss.

Pretty nasty on Labyrinth to have two bosses. That's a level where you often have to blow most of your tiles actually exploring because you get blocked off. Leaves very few resources for the boss fight in most cases. Gotta really hope for an early Binlor find now...

Ouch... Really ouch. I'm gonna destroy my current profile to make a new one even though getting gorgons are going to be a SERIOUS pain...

Is it correct to sumarize that everything got a lot harder and you get less money for preperations in contrast?
Or am i missing something?

I think preps are less, but not everything got harder. All non-tower vicious levels are the same...

Ok but suppose you are a new player without knowledge about the game.
Everything after the normal dungeons is harder, and unless you're able to beat the tower, your economy is crap if the values of the trophies at the taxidermist are for real.
They technically increased the learning curve for beginners in favor of a meatier challenge for veterans.
Don't know if I like this.

Wait, you have to beat the tower to win! Oh God! That is mean. And they made it harder.

Exactly. As a new player you can't possibly beat it and are locked with the weak economy, so you can't even tackle the vicious dungeons effectively in the mean time as you don't have the money for the preperations.
I'm curious how long it will take the veterans here to complete the tower.
For a new player, this time will be multiple of that, if ever.

Wait, so how did they buff the tower? Adding wraiths? AA's?
