Everywhere you meet Mindflayers, theres some of their biotech lying around. Mycoid camp f.e. is another source. What comes in later in release Version, we can only guess.
Then theres options in the game to craft. That will be another source for such items in future.
I dont really care how people want to make their game as easy as they want.
But in my games im willing to use Powerfull Item exploits only in the hardest encounters, when my previous tactics allways fail and when i need to win that battle.
What do you find to be your most challenging battles?
Honestly I only use it for the Githyanki encounter.
Ethel fight can be very challenging when you dont overprepare and have all those mindcontrolled Maskwearers around.
Im not talking about cheesing a shove over the edge solution in the Ethel fight to kill her instantly, just plain old trying to go in not trying to overprepare and max everything out by buffs and spells.
The Githfight can be done with a bit of exploiting crouching when you got the top high positions and deny the giths the ladders and shove around ... but ofc challenging when going in with out prep.
What will come in the future... i guess more NPC rich battles or high healing or high AC fights. we will see.
EA will help to find a good way how battles should be resolved.
Or Battlesystems will stay as it is and only bugs will be ironed out.
