[Throwing] What Am I Doing Wrong Here?

    So, I've decided that I want a thrower.

    I went to the acid slug pit, and I'm not getting any gains?....

    Do you have to have throwing at 70 like a golem, or is the starter 40 going to work...eventually....

    Help!!

    Thanks in advance :)

    Either put on jewelry to get you to at least 60 skill and take it off when you reach that real skill or train the skill to around 60 on other things before you move to the Acid Slugs. I have 2 120 throwers and thats how I did it both times.

    I probably should switch to the harrower, but I am still getting decent gains from the slimes at 108.

    I 120'd both of my Throwers on the Acid Slimes. The gains were much faster for me than golem bashing. The key is to use NPC purchased boomerangs and to try and go with as little DI as possible so that you can hit each one more times. They also work really well if you wanna train bushido along with throwing. Just spam lightning strike.

    I was also working Magery on one character and then Mysticism on another on other accounts while training it so I would use Earthquake/Nether Cyclone to kill off all the ones that moved away when their HP got low.

    i dryad allure'd an arctic ice lord and trained using 100% poisoning throwing weap. btw throwers will fizzle a couple times but can still do attunement etc like humans with joat skill.
     
  8. If you're using the Acid Slugs you can limit your update range using a macro so you don't auto defend something out of range or behind a wall.

    Wow thats a nice feature. I get stuck attacking stuff behind walls all the time, so annoying. Anyone know if that feature is available in the enhanced client or in any mod for the EC?

    Not sure, but I'm definately going to look into the range thing.

    Currently working my throwing on the acid slugs.....105.1!!!

    Thank you everyone for the help, this has been a huge learning curve for me :p
