Problems gaining swords when gargoyle has throwing as well..

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Marcus Blackwell, Sep 9, 2009.

  1. welp made a gargoyle thrower tonight and decided to put swords on him as well for the bonus it offers to negate some of the hci penalty..went to haven to zombie and skelestons to being working charcter..throwing went okay but then when i switch to swords the guy gained nothing it was like he couldnt connect with the sword..his skill was only 40 so he should have been gaining easily..I then decide to test out taking throwing off the guy to see if throwing was casuing swords not to gain. I go and get a soul stone fragment dump throwing onto it and head back to haven..first skeleton I hit I gain and the next one and next one after that.. so in closing seems you cant gain swords while having the throwing skill on a gargoyle..oh and I was using a sword to try to gain swords but it wouldnt gain til after I stoned throwing.

    You gain swords with swordsweapons and throwing with throwing weapons.


    You don't gain swords with throwing weapons.
     
  3. If you read the last sentence I was using a swords weapon when trying to gain swords.. was using a blood sword..

  5. I need to correct myself I just tried double axe the gargoyle only axes and I gained swords while using those while having throwing on the character as well.. seems to be an issue of gaining swords on the bloodblade.
     
  6. *Doh*! My apoglies I just noticed that the bloodblade is a fencing weapon there was my mistake.. my bad not EAs bad..lol

    The name of the weapons is a bit misleading. :)
