    I am new to drone usage but they seem like they could be useful for killing bosses somehow, does anyone have any helpful tips for beating Botania bosses with drones?

    Off topic, but this post hit my funny bone. An image flashed in my head of someone standing there throwing Forestry drones at a boss.

    No tips, but since I am playing Igenuity ATM, that does give me an idea once I get to that point. In fact, between PC drones, Doggy Talents dogs, and Millenaire NPCs (if i can get those to work), it may make gaia2 fights a lot more interesting. Need to plan an arena....

    Gaia Guardian is designed to be un-automatible. I don't think a Drone would keep up with the teleporting anyway.

    They could help with the adds/post add phase. I do not envision using them in an automated sense (where the player's only interaction is activating a system) but as minions adding DPS/aggro.

    If you would have problems with the adds phase, you probably never got to it. By the time you square off against the Gaia Guardian, one hopes that one already has sufficient means of dealing with mundane enemies.

    And in all phases, the Gaia Guardian teleports too rapidly for the drone to keep up with, I doubt it would ever contribute meaningfully.

    Yes I didn't think it would work automated I just figured an ally would be useful lol

    Even if you could get it to work I bet Vaski would find a way to nerf it. Vas wants YOU to actually FIGHT the boss.
