I haven't played since about 3.0 but I also haven't seen any patch notes indicating it was fixed.
Then maybe you should try before complain, isn't?
Dude, I don't want to commit another 60 hours of playtime for a fourth complete playthrough of the game unless I know in advance the random encounters are going to be working. The problem is you can't know until you get about 20+ hours in whether they're going to work on your run or not, because the only way to tell is that you stop getting them.
The next build I want to try needs a few specific items you get from random encounters only (Griffin's Blade, a couple other things) so I don't really want to commit all the time to another run unless I know in advance it's gonna work.
I mean, heck, if it is fixed, then least they could do is say so in the patch notes? That's what they're for!
I’m 99% sure Engari in Seeker, Slayer, Survivor sells one set of Bracers of Greater Deflection. If not, the other accessory vendor does.
