Thorns is considered by most to be a garbage enchantment because of the durability penalty it exacts on the armor to which it is applied, but Thorns could come into favor with two small buffs.
First, Thorns could have a small chance that increases with the enchantment level to inflict on an attacker the same status effect (or fire) that said attacker inflicted on the Thorns user.
Second, Thorns has a tiny chance to inflict on an attacker up to half the damage dealt to the Thorns user. Armor would of course reduce this effect. If the damage is less than eight damage points, the armor instead deals a maximum of four damage points as it does currently.
