Cornerstones of the Witness are a group of enemies summoned forth by The Witness in order to stop The Guardian and their 12 Guardian fireteam from reaching it and destroying it.

Gameplay[edit]

During the initial section of Excision, 3 Cornerstones will spawn on the first 3 plates that need to be captured: those being the Minotaur, Centurion, and Taken Captain Cornerstones. Players will need to defeat these Cornerstones in order to unlock the plate to capture it. Once the 3 have been killed and the 3 plates have been captured, a fourth Cornerstone will spawn on the last plate, this time being a Tormentor. This Tormentor plays like any other Tormentor, and once defeated and the plate has been captured, players will be able to proceed towards the boss room.

During the boss fight with the Witness, 2 Cornerstones will spawn on either side of the room, with it either being a Tormentor, Harbinger or Omen selected for each Cornerstone. Both Cornerstones will need to be defeated in order to release the Traveler's light fissures and collect the light from their in order to empower the rift at the back of the room. Depending on how many phases it takes to get the Witness to its last stand, this process will need to be repeated every time damage phase ends.

Trivia[edit]

  • The model used for the Sol Divisive Cornerstone is the same one used for Atheon, Time's Conflux, albeit the material for the chassis is metallic, as to follow more in line with Sol Divisive and most Vex Collectives.
