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

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Since it grants Icon Thorns.png 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.png Block fades at the start of their turn, it means that they have no way to prevent Icon Thorns.png Thorns from directly damaging their HP.

Synergy[edit | edit source]

  • Icon Block.png Block: Protects yourself from damage while dealing damage against enemy hits.
  • Stacks fully with Caltrops, increases the potency of Icon Thorns.png Thorns even further.
  • Complements nicely with Flame Barrier, which itself grants a hefty amount of Icon Block.png Block to prevent damage and has an effect similar to Icon Thorns.png Thorns tied to it, increases the damage against enemy hits even further.
  • Reducing enemy Icon Strength.png Strength or applying Icon Weak.png Weak allows you to take more hits without receiving much damage. Consider cards like Disarm, Malaise, Piercing Wail, Blind, or Dark Shackles.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

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