The Spiny Shell is a Hardmode accessory that has a chance to be dropped by Crown of Thorns in the Aquatic Depths. When equipped, it causes the player to release a burst of spine projectiles. Each spine deals 50% of the damage the player took, and inflicts the Venom debuff onto hit enemies in the process.
