One of the few warrior skills I’ve yet to make a jump into yet has been THROWING. The skill is completely new to me, as is using the gargoyle race in general. Having said that, I was searching Stratics for some threads about various templates and seem to have come across a wide array of different set ups, so I wanted to ask the inevitable question: What is your thrower template? What are the advantages/disadvantages? Please share some knowledge with me! Here are some of the templates I have seen: Necro/Wraith Thrower Stealth/Ninja Thrower Paladin/Bushido Thrower Sampire Thrower Mystic Thrower A few notes/comments of my own: I already have a Wraith Archer, so I probably wasn’t planning on doing a Wraith Thrower, unless I am told that it is truly the only viable thrower template. Stealth/Ninja Thrower templates I’ve seen appear to be more geared toward PvP and this toon would be for PVM. Is there any special advantage for using a garg in this set up? I like the idea of a Paladin/Bushido thrower… but is this too basic? Is this just a support role toon, in the vein of an ABC Archer? Would this actually be worth using? I am interested in a “sampire” type of Thrower. I currently run a regular swords Sampire that I use for champ spawns and certain peerless bosses, but how would a thrower compare? I guess you can’t exactly tank bosses or spawns and there are no ‘whirlwind’ type special moves for throwers that I know of for fighting numerous mobs. What are the pluses for this template? Combining a spellcaster skill with a melee skill usually sounds like a bad idea, but this Mystic Thrower template really intrigues me, but also confuses me. I am guessing you can cast an RC for tanking purposes and then just sit behind the RC and hit your target with throwing special moves. However, what are the limits of this template? What do you do about LRC? What other spells are you casting? This template seems like it would need strength, intelligence and dexterity, so what is your set up with base stats? I am probably going to use a Mythic Token (yes, I’m one of those people) whenever I decide on a template here. So any advice I can get before I do that would be greatly helpful. I typically put 7 skills on all of my toons, with atleast 6 above GM and usually try to incorporate as much skill as possible on other jewels/talismans, etc. Any other tips about throwing in general or gargoyle gear would be greatly appreciated. Once I have template set up, I will likely make another post looking for some gargoyle gear, as it is something I am completely ignorant about at this time. Any other threads or resources which might discuss this would be helpful.
