Usefulness

The Thorns of Agony will deal damage equal to the base damage of the nail (Fragile Strength will not affect this) and may hit twice if the enemy remains in range. Smaller enemies will tend to be knocked back before the second hit, but large enemies resistant to knockback will take two hits. The main downside of this charm is that it deals damage without collecting SOUL, and in some situations, it may kill easier enemies that would have been useful for regaining SOUL.

The animation for Thorns of Agony will also take up invincibility frames as the player has no control over the Knight until the animation is over. This reduces the number of invincibility frames that the Knight has to move or reposition.

This charm is particularly useful when fighting multiple enemies at the same time, especially in the Colosseum of Fools.

This charm is not recommended for use in Fog Canyon as damaging Oomas will make them burst, releasing their explosive core that home in on The Knight dealing two masks of damage.

How to Acquire

Found in Greenpath in a maze of thorns. Requires Mothwing Cloak to reach.
