Ring of Thorns
Ring of Thorns is a Ring in Dark Souls 2 (DKS2). Players can equip up to 4 Rings, but equipping two of the same item is not possible. Some rings have upgraded versions, having a maximum of +3. Some can only be found in NG+. Rings can be repaired at a blacksmith, but not upgraded. Upgraded versions must be acquired throughout the game from corpses, chests, bosses, etc.
Ring of Thorns Effects
- +0 = 110
- +1 =85
- +2 = 70
- Has a 30% chance of counter-attacking when damage is taken
- +1 = 50%
- +2 = 70%
Ring of Thorns Locations
- Obtained by killing the NPC Mild-mannered Pate, or by progressing far enough into his questline
- +1: Grave Warden Agdayne
- +2: Invade a random world as dark spirit and defeat the host player 1000 times.
- Ring's effect is proc based, meaning that the effect will not trigger every time the player is hit. It deals physical damage in a 180 degree cone the direction the wearer is facing using bolts/projectiles, the same way a crossbow trap in a chest works. This means if you're too close when it procs you can be hit by multiple bolts, each one dealing roughly 200 damage (that's about how much I was hit, not sure if this was scaling off of stats). Does not appear to trigger when taking damage while blocking with a non-100% shield.

Essential for the Noelle build
I wonder how many people have actually invaded 1000 times on one character, let alone invaded and won 1000 times.
Is this usefull for PvE?
Does Ring of Blades or Flynn’s ring boost the damage of this ring?
Lol i discarded mine because i thought cheater forced it into my inventory. Not like i would have used it either way
these rings are trash dookie, +1 does 33 and 66 dmg. Unless these do way more damage in PVP or the plus 2 does 200% more dmg these are worthless.
7 Gower's ring to go please
thank god there's no achievement to acquire all rings in this game, unlike DS3. if there was, we'll be screwed.
Even killing 100 hosts would be overkill.
Can anyone drop me the +2 version on Xbox? Gt is AnimeMan69
Wear this ring to be a [BIG SHOT]
Welp, there goes my ''Get all the rings'' quest.
My favorite ring tbh, make tryhards that invade me cry and also deny kills.
too bad that the +2 of it is so cancer to get
Time to cheat in the +2 and watch the pvp diehards cry
"bruuh piople ar saying itz rard but like i got it 20 times"
1000 successful invasions with the broken pvp in 2? No thanks
There should be a note specifying that for the +2, "random world" means different hosts. If you invade the same host 800 times and then 200 randoms, it won´t work.
Tested it with both 1000 saponite invasions, 1000 creo invasions, and two pc´s with different steam accounts.
bruh to all saying its impossible to get +2 i got it three times now
And that +2, among other things like the Blue Sentinels' requirements, is why I'm glad Cheat Engine / item swapping exists. :^)
I got the thorns +2 two times now.
+2: Invade a random world as dark spirit and defeat the host player 1000 times.
HOW MANY TIMES, FROMSOFT?
The +2 version is why I'm glad there's no ring master achievement
I'm sorry, you have to do 1,000 successful invasions to get the max version of this thing? Well then...
70% chance to counter attack PASSIVELY? Jesus CHRIST. Stack this with, say the Old Leo ring and you've got a helluva thang.
Wow no Kirk -2/10 game uninstalling immediately
I other words, this is useful but it only works about every 3rd hit you receive. Works best with old sun ring for maximum damage.
