The endgame text even indicates that Vicious dungeons are still left to play and mentions Dragon Isles by name as being previously locked.
...Which reminds me that the Nose Ring which is required to reach the endgame quest is perhaps too difficult to obtain for casual users, since defeating Rex second is the only way to get it...minotaurs are never random bosses. I'm not a casual user by any means, but it seems the devs want to make reaching the endgame quest a realistic goal for them as well.
I'm not sure how realistic it is to expect casual users to ever obtain the Nose Ring. Harder quests which result in locker items or the final potions can easily be skipped by casual users since the endgame quest requires no prep (and w/o prep, shops are heavily stocked with mostly non-quest items). However, defeating the Labyrinth in a non-intuitive way, Rex after random boss, is a requirement to reach the endgame quest.
Maybe there should be an easier way for casual users to get the Nose Ring. Minotaur random bosses? Idk...
Then again, I might be focusing too much on casual users.
