The thorny whip "Bloody Rose" is a non-guaranteed artifact weapon. It has a 30% chance to score critical hits in melee. It appears as a whip when unidentified, making it indistinguishable from normal whips.


It is a fairly good general-purpose melee weapon, thanks to its decent base damage, increased chance to crit, and the superior bonuses from the whip weapon skill.

Guaranteed/Common sourcesEdit

It can be granted as a precrowning gift or a reward for making use of a potion of uselessness, generated in a surge of power or greater vault, or generated as random loot (albeit very rarely).
