Armor of Thorns

In-Game Description

Armor of Kirk, knight of Thorns and notorious
member of the Darkwraiths. A dense patch of
thorns grows from its surface.

It is a fitting item for the murderous Kirk,
for by simply wearing it and rolling, one can
damage enemies.

Availability

Treasure from a corpse at the dead end behind Quelaag's Sister's bonfire in Quelaag's Domain, along with the rest of the Set of Thorns. The corpse only appears if you defeated Kirk, Knight of Thorns in all three places (Depths, Demon Ruins, and Lost Izalith).
