  • Damage is reflected when hit by a basic attack, regardless of whether the attack deals damage. If the attacker is blinded, or the wearer is protected by a shield or invulnerability, damage will still be reflected.
  • By itself, Bramble Vest reflects at least 6.5 magic damage on being hit.
  • Healing effects triggering on a basic attack (life steal,
    's Turtle Stance,
    Xin Zhao
    's Determination, etc.) will first be reduced by Grievous Wounds.
    • This means that the Grievous Wounds, applied by Bramble Vest, will be effective with the basic attack that triggers the effect.


  • Bramble Vest's icon looks similar to the deleted item

Patch History[edit]

Patch 9.8

Grievous Wounds duration increased.

Making Bramble Vest's Grievous Wounds duration consistent with the effect on other items.


Reflect damage now has lower base damage but scales with armor.

Bramble Vest is still proving too strong a spot-counter against basic attackers, thanks to the spike of strength it provides against them. We're working to dial that back and ensure it doesn't take over the laning phase.

MAGIC DAMAGE REFLECT : [15] 3 + 10% of bonus armor

Cost increased. Damage reflected decreased.

Bramble Vest was a much needed item for tanks who desired a way to deal with auto-attackers with heavy lifesteal/healing. Right now, however, it’s overtuned to the point that it’s good against all basic attackers, so we’re bringing its cost up and effectiveness down a bit.

TOTAL COST : [900] 1000 gold
COMBINE COST : [300] 400 gold
BUGFIX : No longer applies Grievous Wounds to non-Champions


Thornmail’s redesign makes it a strong answer to healing-heavy comps, but its price point is too high for it to serve as a timely reaction to an out-of-control threat. We’re introducing Bramble Vest to make the Thorns passive available at lower gold investments. This is a paradigm you’re probably familiar with on other items: Hexdrinker into Maw of Malmortius, Quicksilver Sash into Mercurial Scimitar, etcetera.
