Phoenix Point - Legacy of the Ancients - Defeating Ancient Guardians

This is just an option, but it seems to work,

2 heavy soldiers, with Destiny III mounted weapon, using ground elevation , also neutralizing Cyclops beam easily

Jormungandr Cannon destroying the Cyclops in two turns

3 Snipers in the right spots

2 Turrets (also Return Fire is working)

1 Technician with enough WP

2 Assault soldiers, hiding and using synergy with Onslaught

Well done!

I have yet to successfully complete one of these missions in my play throughs (I play as if its ironman, so mistakes are very costly!). I believe they made it a bit easier in the newest build but I’ve yet to dare try it again. My entire last game I avoided these missions so as to preserve my squad! So I’ve not yet had any of the special resources you need to make the new items.

GJ, and you have again shown that these turrets are OP, plus their mounted sister :wink:

Of course, I keep posting in the Council :slight_smile:

Hey @etermes a few questions:

1 - Is there a reason for you to left click and then click on the action instead of using one right click besides preference? Just curious.
2 - I’ve never used the Dante much. Why did you choose to use it against the cyclops as it did very low damage besides the 40 fire damage? I couldn’t tell how much damage it got from the fire and how much it got from the acid. Could you explain how fire works?

Thank you very much!

force of habit, I guess

Dante FT animation is cool, and the Cyclops was done at that moment, with Acid, so I used it, it is what that heavy soldier carried in the aircraft

So, dear readers, it could be that this tactic didn’t work when you read it to late, because the TE fights to nerf the toys that are necessary to do it again. :rofl:

I hope it will not hit these weapons to hard :wink:

Don’t worry, they are not listening to me too much :sweat_smile:

What worked for me was the Athena Paralyze Sniper Rifle, one hit gives the Hoplite 16 Para (-2 AP) so they cant use there beam weapon

You are going with 8 end game soldiers with high tech and use turrets… Those poor ancients got jo chance. Thi is against ancients rights!

Next site, I will try Athena, I have four of them

Those things have rights, sure, right to die :smile:

Sounds like a job for a Dedicate, Mission Specific, Strike Team! One you have created that works :smiley:
