Bronze Scales is a common relic that gives your character 3 Icon Thorns Thorns at the start of each combat. This means every time an enemy land a hit on you, Icon Block blocked or not, they will take 3 damage.

StrategyEdit

Since it grants Icon Thorns Thorns, enemies will take damage every time they land a hit on your character, whether it deals damage or not. This makes this relic especially effective against enemies that relies on multiple-hits attack such as Book of Stabbing, Byrds, Snake Plant and Corrupt Heart.

Also, since enemy's Icon Block Block fades at the start of their turn, it means that they have no way to prevent Icon Thorns Thorns from directly damaging their HP.

SynergyEdit

  • Icon Block Block: Protects yourself from damage while dealing damage against enemy hits.
  • Stacks fully with Caltrops

  • Complements nicely with Flame Barrier
    FlameBarrier
    , which itself grants a hefty amount of Icon Block Block to prevent damage and has an effect similar to Icon Thorns Thorns tied to it, increases the damage against enemy hits even further.
  • Reducing enemy Icon Strength Strength or applying Icon Weak Weak allows you to take more hits without receiving much damage. Consider cards like Disarm

TriviaEdit

  • The flavor text says that these scales belong to The Guardian. However, The Guardian's Sharp Hide buff works differently than Icon Thorns Thorns, dealing damage to the player per attack card played instead of per hit landed.
