Elona Wiki
Original Beta version

The <Shield ofThorn>[sic] (tingling shield when unidentified) is a precious shield that can be randomly dropped or randomly generated on adventurers.

It gives a high damage bonus to both melee and ranged physical attacks, and cuts enemies that melee attack its wearer. However, it has a very low PV bonus compared to other shields.

In Elona+, it is wielded by <Mary> the insect master, who drops it on death. It also appears as a reward for Hunting and Challenge quests.
