Does anyone find throwing a useful substitute for archery?

    I sure don't, but maybe I'm just missing something. When I tested it, it just seemed so weak compared to archery. Too many penalties. I don't know, maybe I just didn't use it quite enough, but it seemed pretty lame.
     
  2. I tried it in open beta and found it was lacking in many ways. I was looking forward to it. But the penalties and the fact you seem to hit alot less often than with archery makes it less attractive. I had thought given the gargoyle racial of deadly aim it would be a great skill.

    The realistic restrictions are cute... but overall make throwing useless. I mean, it's archery, but you have to be standing in the right spot, and or have extra skills to off set the negatives. Pass.
