The Helm of Thorns is a head armor piece in Dark Souls. It is part of the Set of Thorns.

In-Game Description

Characteristics[]

Deals 20 physical damage when rolling into nearby enemies. The damage dealt is added together with any of the other pieces of armor from the set.

Requires 200 souls per upgrade.
