The Ring of Thorns is a ring.

Its class name in save files is "com.​watabou.​pixeldungeon.​items.​rings.​RingOfThorns".


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.
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
