    I'm currently a gargoyal and taking throwing too 120. If I transform to elf or human can I still use the throwing skill as a weapon base for Use Best Weapon Skill? Or does it not work like archery doesn't?

    Thank You for your feedback,

    MY point being that ANYONE can have the skill on there character, but yes, only a gargoyal can use a throwing weapon. That doesn't mean you can't have the SKILL on another type of char but USE a UBWS item and expect throwing to act as the skill base.

    Storm said no and sames as Archery, so I'll go with that answer.

    TY

    can you set throwing on a human/elf on Test center? if so you could double check it there, but im pretty sure its like archery.

    I know this seems silly but.. if you polymorphed into a human couldn't use you throwing? I know this isn't what the OP was asking.. but it would let you ride a dread mare.. I would think.. of course you would need magery but thats the only way I can think of a human or elf could use throwing..

    As for it working as ubws I would say no..

    I would try a gargoyle out I think if the altering went both ways.. I refuse to alter a crimson, mace and shields, etc to TRY a character out. If I could alter the items and alter them back to human if I didn't like the character I would defenitly give it a go.

    Anyways sorry to go off topic here.
