Ring of Thorns
Though this ring doesn't provide real thorns, an enemy that attacks you will itself be wounded by a fraction of the damage that it inflicts. Upgrading this ring won't give any additional bonuses.


The Ring of Thorns can only be obtained as a drop from DM-300 (1/3 chance), or it may also be transferred between games through the Hero's remains.

When worn

The Ring of Thorns will damage the enemy when it attacks the Hero/ine.
The damage done to the enemy will be distributed between 0 to damageTaken.
The deflected damage will never be dodged, or reduced, by the enemy.


The Ring of Thorns cannot degrade
