BARK SKIN

+0.75% Armor Effectiveness
+15% Armor Effectiveness at maximum level (20)

Bark Skin’s Armor Bonus Effect

Bark Skin is another big priority, though definitely after Keeper’s Blessing, since you can gain more armor by using heavier sets or upgrading their gear levels. This trait is a bit complicated to find, and might take several runs in adventure mode to unlock. Doing so is well worth it though, as the 15% bonus is very noticeable and will start getting you to where you can shrug off some of the lighter attacks of enemies without having to dodge everything all the time.

Goes well with the Divine Nectar potion that buffs Armor Effectiveness by an additional 10% for 1 hour.

How to Find the Bark Skin Trait

There is a two step process to unlocking the Bark Skin trait. This is probably best done in Adventure Mode.

  1. First you will have to roll Earth until you encounter the Mad Merchant npc vendor. He is in an area named Junk Town. When you talk to him, you will have some dialog options that allow you to ask about his mask. Do so until he decides to fight you. The battle is fairly easy and once he is downed, you will receive the Twisted Mask armor piece.
  2. Find the Wailing Tree event on Earth. You may have to re-roll as it is not guaranteed to spawn in the same world as the Mad Merchant, though this is possible. When you find the event, equip the Twisted Mask. You will now be able to interact with the tree. Doing so starts an animation that has the tree giving you the Bark Skin trait, before it dies.

It is worth noting that you can not complete the normal event that gives you the Twisted Idol amulet, if you use the Wailing Tree for Bark Skin. Also only one player can use the tree at a time, and subsequently unlock the trait. The Twisted Mask on the other hand, drops into all players inventories like a normal boss reward item.
