Chaos Gate Aeger – How To Beat
Destroy The Nurgling Spawners
During the early turns, Ectar and Lunete will advise you to destroy all Nurgling Spawners. This is exactly what you should prioritize before dealing with Aeger as each one spawns Nurglings per turn. Nurglings can be very annoying with their attacks and can combine to make a Plaguebearer to impede and harass your team. Aeger can also use the Nurglings to regenerate its HP and defend itself from your attacks. Obviously, no Nurglings makes this an easy fight. Use fire from your Fire Support or run to and smash the Spawners using your Justicar or Interceptor.
Watch Your Step
The toxic green sludge can inflict debilitating status effects and may restrict your Grey Knights’ movement speed and capabilities. Look for avenues where you can safely traverse and avoid them when you can. Before confirming your movement, check if its blue to see if you can safely move to that location. Otherwise, you might have to pinpoint a first stop just to safely move.
Land A Criticals To Weaken Aeger
A critical hit can significantly neuter Aeger’s offensive capabilities. Landing the first critical allows you to inflict Aeger with Silence. This lasts until the end of the mission, severely impacting Aeger’s damaging assaults. After landing this initial critical hit, you open more options including the following:
- Afflict Weakend (∞)
- Afflict Immobilized (1 Turn)
- Disable Nurgling Spew (∞)
- Disable Go Forth, My Nephews (∞)
Once you destroy the Nurgling Spawners and land a few critical hits, Aeger’s nothing but a sitting duck. Hit it until it goes down.
