    First off for the last two days I have been at 42.1 throwing, and been throwing at a corpser for 10 hours now, and have not even hit it ONCE!


    Second, on a seperate wep that I have tried, is a -20 magery wep... When I equip it, my magery doesn't move from 120... Nor does it work like other mage weps...

    Anyone notice anything else?

    Although throwing weapons are one-handed, there is an *enormous* penalty for using a shield (partially offset by your parrying skill) - the playguide mentions there's a penalty, but does not make a point of just how extreme it is.

    No matter what your throwing skills and HCI bonuses, your chance of successfully hitting with a shield and no parry with a throwing weapon is exactly 0.0%

    Trying gaining of the normal slimes near the entrance of underworld from Fire Island side, just mind the Gremlin. Should get you up to 50. As Maple said, no shield.
