Lavavein, along with his partner, powers up every kill the player makes. He gains 1 damage per level of the last monster slain, which puts a pressure to take him out early. His rather high health makes this difficult, however, without significant bonus experience to help, which makes Glyph: IMAWAL IMAWAL an amazing find, and the Goblin race a worthwhile pick.

The most dangerous part of Lavavein is how First Strike bolsters the new Unstable trait. Unstable will hit you for as hard as the monster had remaining health on the death blow, which is stacked on top of Lavavein's normal attack. Without a way to slow him, or clever manipulation of his health, this can make him nearly impossible to finish off.

Goodusa, along with Lavavein, gets harder to deal with the more monsters are slain in the dungeon. Goodusa gains both physical and magical resistances dependant on monster level, which considering its high damage and high health becomes a serious problem. Thankfully, resistances can just as easily be stripped away, via any form of Trait: Might Might, the Item: Piercing Wand Piercing Wand or boons like God boon: Chaos Avatar Chaos Avatar, meaning that you do have a way to undo Goodusa's perks, unlike with Lavavein.

Death Gaze is the true problem. Goodusa's high stats paired with 100% Death Gaze makes for a cruel combination that can end the run even if you've managed to take down Lavavein with no difficulty. Spell casting would be the way to go, except for its high health, and relying on that alone will leave you nothing to work with on the other boss ESPECIALLY if Goodusa's resists have built up decently high. Very few strategies outside of poison or an incredibly strong spike will efficiently take Goodusa down.
