Bronze Scales is a common relic, that gives your character 3 Thorns at the start of each combat. This means every enemy that attacks you will take 3 damage back afterwards.


  • Enemies will take damage every time they attack your character. This means that enemies who attack multiple times a turn will take several damage instances (if an enemy attacks you X times, they will take 3*X damage). This makes this relic especially effective against enemies that attack more than once in a turn, such as Book of Stabbing (+3 damage every attack), Byrd (x5 damage) and, most effective, the Corrupted Heart (x12! damage).


  • The flavor text says that these scales belong to The Guardian. This may be true, since the Guardian's defense form has the Thorns ability
