|Type||Medium Armor Set|
The set is the trademark armor of Kirk, Knight of Thorns.
The Thorns Set has several unique characteristics. Rolling with it will cause minor damage and poise damage to anything the player connects with. However, if the player has a weapon equipped that cannot be wielded one-handedly, the player will stagger upon rolling into an enemy. This happens even if the player is holding the weapon in both hands (and has sufficient strength to wield it two-handed). Wearing the Thorns Set also increases the damage dealt by Gauntlets, and adds small damage to kicks.
Unfortunately, the Thorns Set offers below average defense and resistances for its weight. The Dark Set, for example, provides better or equivalent characteristics in all fields, for a lower weight.
