Badge villain cot


You have uncovered the secret of the Circle of Thorns mages, that they are ancient spirits who inhabit the stolen bodies of their victims.

How to Get

Defeat 200 Circle of Thorns mages.

Weapon Unlocked

When a Broad Sword Scrapper obtains this badge, they unlock the Thorn Blade weapon customization.


For Heroes, this badge can easily be earned in the southern half of The Hollows where groups of Circle of Thorns litter the area. This is easier to do at a higher level where one can just run around defeating mages and ignoring the other minor enemies.
