The Vision Crystal is an ancient artifact that everyone is required to obtain if they wish to ascend. The crystal focuses the gaze of the Gods of Tyria during the champions final Ascension test, facing the Doppelganger.
It's individual parts was separated to keep it safe from harm, but each Elonian group entrusted with a piece began to mistrust the other Elonians, so the crystal was kept separate to keep one Elonian group from gaining the full power of the vision crystal. It is reunited by doing the mission Elona Reach.
