    Sounds like you might be holding a shield. It gives a penalty to throwing.

    If so, unequip your shield and see if you are getting better results.

    Also, there's an optimum distance for each throwing weapon, stand too near, you get a hci penalty. Stand too far, you get a damage penalty.

    I wonder if a UBWS weapon would work with Throwing?
    If so you may be better (if possible) to stone a GM Swords skill over and train it that way with the rest outside Luna with those strange green weapons and those incredibly stupid Golems.
