I'm on my third playthrough (1st on Spring Update) and the game seems far too easy. I began with adding +1 to enemies saves and hit and enemies having 125% health. The only encounter that was challenging (and it was very tough until I metagamed and used the environment to protect softer characters) was the 2 invisible soraks side quest. I know I can just increase enemy stats, but shouldn't the normal game be challenging? My fighter tank has ~26 AC, and I haven't even bothered attuning two +1 AC items because there's no point, he doesn't get hit. The melee goblin skirmishers in the zone with the minotaur did have iirc +16 to hit (possible bug), which caught me off guard and was refreshing, but still proved to be no issue.
I remember facing down the minotaur and thinking, awesome, he's going to wreck my party and make me think about using a different strategy other than swarm the enemy, but alas, he just had more health than most enemies and didn't do anything offensively.
Enemies tend to attack what's next to them, so its not an issue having them target my tank. The 2 invisible sorak encounter did have the enemies targeting my less hardy characters which was a nice change of pace.
This isn't just a result of the influx of magical items the spring update brought (although it exacerbates the issue). My second run during the winter update was also a similar experience with enemies proving to be no issue.
I just read a post where someone advised Ashka (vamp boss) was bugged and gaining extra life off of piercing damage (I believe this is what the post said), but it made me recall the fight I had with her, and she never even landed one hit on my tank in the battle, while focusing on the tank the entire time. It wasn't even that I held everyone back and just sent the tank in, I had everyone enter the room together.
Game is great overall, especially the 3d aspect of battle and the voiced dialogue. I'm curious if other people have had similar experiences.
Edit: I forgot to state my 3rd playthrough uses point buy, with some min maxing, but not absurd.
