Arrogant and calculating

Torment is one of Shadow Stalker's Acolytes, first introduced during Operation: Shadow Debt. She takes the form of MesaIcon272.png Mesa with Stalker's helmet, a Naberus shoulder piece, and some of EquinoxIcon272.png Equinox's front tassels. She also uses an Eos chest plate for a codpiece, and the Eos spurs.

As of Update 29.5, Torment can now spawn in The Steel Path missions.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Instead of Mesa's abilities, Torment uses TempestBarrage130xDark.png Tempest Barrage and TidalSurge130xDark.png Tidal Surge and wields the Dual vastos.png Akvasto.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "Alad V only wants profit, he is the enemy."
  • "This one has caused much suffering and yet you protect him... Why?"
  • "You have lost your way, Tenno, I will help you find it."
  • "I am not defeated."

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Torment was the first Acolyte to be brought back after being defeated. Uniquely, it was before Operation: Shadow Debt had even ended because of the Hotfix 18.4.3 that tweaked the drop rate of mods wasn't released until after her first defeat.

Patch History[edit | edit source]

Hotfix 29.5.4

  • Acolytes have been given the fancy “boss Health bar” treatment!

Update 29.5

  • As you play in any Steel Path mission, Acolytes will spawn and attack - defeating the Acolyte grants a guaranteed drop of 2 Steel Essence. Beware! If you get downed by an Acolyte, they'll escape and you won’t receive any Steel Essence!
    • The Steel Path Acolytes now have received the same Status Effect eligibility treatment that Liches received in Update 27.3 earlier this year. This means we have slightly increased their health (scaled by squad size) as the Status Effect eligibility makes them easier to kill.
    • Reduced the Melee attack damage on both Misery and Malice to avoid the more reported 1HKOs.
  • In essence (ha), there is virtually no RNG with Steel Essence anymore. Acolytes will always appear in regular missions (Endlessly in Endless missions.). The time at which they choose to appear may be a bit random, but if you kill mobs, they will come!
    • Please note, Acolytes won't spawn in Archwing missions on the Steel Path.

Hotfix 18.4.1

  • Introduced.
