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




Armor / Helm / Gauntlets / Leggings of Kirk, the notorious knight of Thorns. A dense patch of thorns grows form its surface.

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.

      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.

          anyone know why it didn't coms out after the DLC version , is that need to completed the DLC first ?
          I was ember mode and the boss didn't kill yet , just com down to the follor but hr didn't shows up .........

            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

              If you want to let the every other Player know you are 12 Years Old and are not capeable of doing anything else than spammin R1 and roll That's your Armor!

                  I just tested it with many rings and below 30% equip load.... flynns ring and lloyds sword ring did nothing to the damage with all 4 thorn armor parts equipped. it still remained 25 damage per roll on the hollow enemies!

                    I killed Kirk, but his armor didn't show up.<br/><br/>There is a friendly maggot man in the room now though.<br/>And the bonfire can't be used.
