Armor of Thorns Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

A fitting item for the murderous Kirk, for even the simple act of rolling can damage enemies when wearing this attire.

Location/Where to Find

Notes and Tips

  • When wearing any parts of this  armour, rolling and quickstepping into enemies does damage (very little). Note: damage stacks, eg. one piece of the set equiped will do 2 damage, two pieces will do 4 damage etc. This also stacks with attack boosting rings, such as Flynn's ring with lower equip ratio. Also Llyod's sword ring and plenty more.

      I love it when people tell me to get it myself if I say I missed it. ***** I'd love to get it myself but THE ARMOR IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE IN MY GAME AND IM NOT MAKING A WHOLE NEW CHARACTER FOR THIS CRAPPY GEAR

        Person 1: Can you trade me this armor? Missed it and killed boss, GT: (Insert GT)
        Person 2: No, get it yourself

          I got this After beating game don't know if it's a glitch or I didn't notice earlier In The playthrough but was waiting there when I went to respec after soul of cinder lord of hollows ending. I will just sit down when others show up in pvp with this set on and let them roll me to death because ***** them. Or lure them to a cliff or bridge and then let them roll around as much as they want.

            People seriously need to stop leaving comments like "get it yourself" when someone asks for a piece of armor or weapon to be traded to them... i see it so much on this page. If you don't intend on giving them the gear then don't message, period, it is not any of your business at that point. If your argument is that they should play the game to get it, they ARE playing the game, trading is a part of almost any online game and i don't know why it's frowned upon in dark souls... Stop being like that people, you're making a conscious decision to be mean for no reason, its ridiculous.

              Why doesn't Kirk's armor have slight bleed buildup? The blurb about the sword and shield both say that the thorns are the reason these weapons have innate bleed. Lore-wise, it doesn't make sense for the thorn-covered armor to not cause bleed when everything else with thorns does, even if it weren't much, like 5 per piece.

                As a noob, I am not sure how to quite explain this, but if you imagine this armor having "special powers", which is its unique rolling, are there any other armors in the game with "special powers"? Like wearing them gives you something more than just plain protection from attacks.

                    So I've noticed that the effect of this armor is similar to a very light attack. That means that against some heavy armor there is a chance that you cannot roll directly past the enemy. I've noticed this especially with cathedral knights. Attempting to roll past the enemy will be like attacking a heavy shield with a knife or another light weapon; it just bounces off. This can be detrimental because it interrupts the dodge you are trying to make. I've literally bounced off a cathedral knight twice and then got killed because I was expecting to not be in the line of attack.<br/><br/>On the other hand, this armor deals a small amount of poise damage. Rolling past an enemy that is near stunlock can actually stunlock them and open up a ripost attack opportunity. Giver a try
