Your best (and almost only) shot at this is the first Alien Nest mission and your first encounter with the rulers,
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


To get this trophy, you want to use two things:
- Delayers like statis, stuns or the frost grenades
- Rangers having the "Bladestorm" passive

Don't hesitate in taking your time before triggering: there is no counter and, as this boss will play after EACH OF YOUR ACTIONS, management of your turns is critical. Heal, buff yourself and place correctly before engaging.

If possible, simply ignores the adds.

Go for melee attacks to the king with your Rangers in order to surround him. If you have the Bladestorm "passive", every time it will enter OR exit their melee range, your Rangers will try poking at him (and more than often, successfully). Make sure you keep a good configuration for using your frost grenades without freezing your own, though.

When around half of the king's HP have been depleted, it will open a void portal and, from this moment, will focus on escaping. When that happens, throw the grenade / stun and throw everything at it or use the statis and time it well by putting your people on overwatch. Just make sur you don't time that with the add's turn or they will probably spoil it all. Also, make sure your Rangers are between its current location and the portal so that their Bladestorm passive triggers, if it ruler gets to wake up.

Finally, if it's still alive, when the guy goes out of its frozen / stunned / stasis state, it will try to make a run for the portal. Overwatches will trigger, rangers will draw their blades and, bliing, you'll get the trophy. Along with "Not Throwing Away My Shot".
