Default Crown of Blackthorne

It seems a bunch of my posts got vanished somehow. Was gonna follow up to the one asking about if the Crown of Blackthorne works for the Royal Thorns or just the normal one's.

It does work. What got me confused is the crown description reads that it increases the attack by 100%. So I was checking the attack rating. It actually increases the damage done.

Also my tip for using the Crown got vanished, so I'll repost for posterity. I'm rather proud of my discovery.

The crown can be equipped between battles to make use of the quality of reducing loss of rage. Just take it off right before entering a battle to equip a more preferable head gear for battle. Put it back on again after the battle is over. Just don't forget to take it off before battle.

Used this way I've been able to bring my mana from zero to full while preserving half my rage ready for next battle, but not wasting an equipment slot on the crown (useless for battle with a thornless army). Also good for those rage fills from energy converters and pools of rage before rushing to a hero/boss battle.

Somehow that obvious idea slipped by me for a long while before it dawned on me. Makes the crown a good find especially for a warrior.
Funny idea for an item. Self abuse to gain benefit for a forthcoming battle.

Wait.. the crown doubles the DAMAGE thorns do, and not the Attack? That is significantly better, especially for level 1 thorns. Yikes.

In the original game, KBTL, it actually does double the damage rather than the attack, and the description says double damage as well. Pretty overpowered then.

I believe they planned on nerfing it in KBAP, but only got to change the description. Needs further checking though, as it might actually just double the attack, but the corresponding creature stat screen might be bugged.

Probably another discrepancy - looking at the russian KBAP, the item improves the damage if the thorns by 100% rather than their attack.

Great, the thorns are still powerful then with the Crown of Blackthorne.... but still not as powerful as the droids and undead.

yep, crown of blackthorne + scope ( 100% to damage of archers ?)

You could go Royal thorns - thorn hunters - Dryads - thorn warriors/ other archers / denomologist - for some thorny fun.

I'd be more fun if they were resurectable.

Crown of Blackthorn + Demoness Whip + Assasains Dagger will get you some serious damage with thorns!

According to the unit data screen it shows the damage is increasing significantly, not the attack rating. Makes for nice looking numbers on the Royal.

It would be good to know if it actually is increasing the damage and not just making a show of it on the unit data screen as loreangelicus is suggesting.

I wonder how the game code works, if the numbers shown on the unit data screen are the actual numbers the game uses to calculate damage, or if those are just numbers for show that must be accurately corresponded with the game code which is hidden...?

Thanks for the ideas travelingoz & McSwan.

I wonder what order it applies those buffs in...

Can you get thorns doing like 10 damage each?

Crown doubles basic damage, then the whip adds 1 fire dmg and the dagger 1 poison damage. So yes! 500 thorns will do about 5000 damage on average! Really makes Dryads super over powered!
