Having seen the improved Bastion loot tables in 20w30a, I can say it's definitely a big step in the right direction. Definitely needed since the Brutes were added to amp up the difficulty of the structure.
I think the Bastion is still missing one thing: a unique piece of loot. Something really useful that can only be found in the Bastion. Something to give the player real incentive to go to one and risk their life. The updated Bastion loot in this snapshot, although considerably better than before, can be obtained in many other different ways.
The End City has the Elytra which can only be found there. Fortresses have blaze rods and wither skulls. Monuments have sponges and prismarine for conduits. Buried Treasure has Heart of the Sea. The Bastion, on the other hand, is still lacking that unique item.
So what could this unique treasure item be?
I was thinking maybe some unique potion (e.g. Potion of Health Boost) or ingredient that can only be found there. Or a special mineral to get super long potions (13 minutes) or something like that. Maybe a unique treasure enchantment that can only be found there. Just some ideas I'm throwing out that could give the Bastion that unique treasure item to perfect the structure.
