After considering these two points, if you are able to reach boss floors consistently, we’re thinking about making it so you’ll be able to obtain one desired item from amongst the items that can drop off a boss, which would be separate from the items that also dropped from that battle.
I think many people may have missed this part. While I understand that this doesn't make getting to floor 80 or 100 any easier, it means that when you finally do manage to do it, you would be guaranteed a drop that you want. That's pretty game-changing considering the current odds of getting something you actually want.
