Tavern Conerstone

Tavern's Northwest Cornerstone, illuminated with flashbomb

Cornerstones are small green blocks at the bottom corners of walls. Firing Moss Arrows into them increases Faction status with Pagans, after gaining the Pagan Blessing ability. They are darkly colored, and have the Pagan symbol for moss on them.

Activating a cornerstone causes a solid brown veil to appear over it. This was probably intended to have a vine-like texture upon it, as suggested by Dyan's instructions in the Docks.[1]

Where to find themEdit

  • On the corners of some parts of the town.
  • At the bottom of certain walls around The City.
  • A Rust Mite can often be found nearby.

Side QuestEdit

Pagan Reward

Earth Crystal Shrub

If Garrett activates all 15 cornerstones, a small shrub will appear in Garrett's Apartment, sprouting from the raised section of planks in the main room, along with a note from a grateful Shaman Singreen on the table. Three earth crystals are generated at the base of the shrub.[2]. It does not obstruct the Hammerites' reward which appears in the same location.
