Here's a guide on Enemy Aggression in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and if it's better to disable it or not.

In each area, you will come across scaled enemy levels and specially placed level 80+ monsters that you want to avoid.

Even worse when you're trying to farm a specific Collection Point for materials for a side quest. So, should you turn off Enemy Aggression in Xenoblade Chronicles 2?
