True to its name, the Thorn Bow is entirely composed of prickly thorns, presumably a branch off of the Rafflesia. A blooming red flower and a small flower bud reside at the top of the weapon, along with another branch of thorns growing in a distinctive direction.
Unlike most Poison weapons, the Thorn Bow cannot inflict the Poison status on its own (though it can do so through its special abilities, albeit with low efficiency), instead focusing on direct physical damage, with a great boost to Attack, a low boost to Magic Attack and no other stats affected.
It can cast the Rafflesia's single-target vines (called Thorny Vine) with single-target weapon-elemental attacks, and their weaker area-of-effect version (called Thorny Vines) as an occasional between-turn summon. Both of these are physical and multi-hit, and are also affected by the Poison-elemental skills boost, together with several other skills Anna can learn.
The Thorn Bow provides resistance to both the Poison element and the Poison status, with the latter becoming an immunity at level 5.
Found on the Battle Mountain, specifically in the bottom-right chest on the Rainbow Rafflesia screen, accessible after beating the eight-wave foe rush with foes from Lankyroot Jungle. The Stepladder is required to get this far.
|Boosts the power of Poison skills. May cast Thorny Vine with certain skills. Randomly casts Thorny Vines between turns.|
- As with many other weapons found on Battle Mountain, the Thorn Bow metaphorically represents one of the bosses in the main game; in this case, the Rafflesia.
