I'm on my second play-through of Mass Effect. Since I decided to do this with the same character I had from the first play-through, I started off pretty high-level (I think around 50). In the beginning, it seemed level X equipment was rare-ish but still available. I'm now a good bit through the main mission, but still a bit away from the end. I've picked up Liara, and done Feros plus every side-quest I could get my hands on. I'm now on Noveria. However, I've yet to find any equipment above level X - and that's becoming fairly common.

By now, my primary shore party members (Shepard, Liara, Garrus) all have level X equipment in every slot and for every mod. So, I'm beginning to wonder: Is this as good as it gets? Is there no level XI?

Yes, tier 10 (X) is the highest.

All equipment caps out at tier 10.

See, for example, assault rifles, pistols, and human light armor.
