Yeah, heh, the minibosses for the expansion are generally a little crazier than the ones from the base game. This is the Hard mode version so the Normal mode one is a little less crazy than this one at least! :)

Holy smokes that is an insane one, to be sure.  That might be run-ending for me, but then again I dont't play on hard in the first place...

The mines stay a little too long in my opinion unless it's not that way in normal mode. Don't know what the differences gonna be.

Also note that that is a "Floor 1 start" White Gloss. No upgrades of any kind and whomever was playing still managed it by taking only 3 hits (one felt really avoidable to me).

I can't quite recall but I think the mine length is the same on all difficulties currently. I can tweak that duration easily. I'll probably wait for a little more feedback before making any changes, though. If you're going off the trailer then perhaps in game things might seem different.

With upgrades and better weapons the enemy will be a fair bit easier. I've actually upped the HP since that video was made because in game proper the boss was getting taken down too easily.

If it looks a bit crazy, just keep in mind that although the golden floors bring more dangers, they also bring more treasures with which to face said dangers.
I'm looking forward to fighting that miniboss with the updated HP. :)

The minibosses in the expansion aren't as hard as they're going to initially look. They're the sort that's intimidating, but  not really too bad once you're actually fighting them without panicking.  I don't think anyone is going to get stuck on them.  For too long.

They're also not my fault, so I'm not the one to complain at if someone does get stuck. 

I'll have other things to kill everyone.

.....I just realized I forgot to finish up the last two enemies I was working on and send the bloody update in.  Ugh.  It's been a loooong week.
