XCOM 2 Advent Priest Details and How to Combat

These guys are Advent Psionic troops which have the ability to bolster their offensive or defensive capabilities either to attack your troops or to strengthen up their allies. They often retreat to rear positions making them harder to deal with.

They often mind control allies and retreat. You need to hunt them down and kill them to release your allies. They can also place any of your troops in stasis, temporarily freezing them but also making them immune to any damage. In defence mode, the priest can give one of its allies a Psionic shield or turn them into a Holy warrior with improved stats. Kill the priest to negate these effects.

But these priests can come back from death. When you land a deathblow for the first time, the priest may enter into stasis himself. This makes them immune to damage and allows them to get a turn after coming out from stasis.

Priests usually do not have much health or armour so take them out quickly before they have a chance to use any of their abilities. Set a soldier on them particularly the Reaper, Skirmisher or Ranger with Run And Gun.

Autopsy them to get the Sustaining Sphere. It is a one-use item that replicates the self-stasis ability. When a soldier is about to die, use this item to get into stasis. The soldier’s health will not fall below one point. But this removes the sphere from the inventory permanently. That’s all from XCOM 2 Advent Priest details guide.
