    Heya,

    I have been trying to find firm information on throwing weapon Range and their penalties.

    There is some bits of information on uo.com, stratics and uoguide. But no complete info and also no information on the soul glaive.

    It has Range 10 I believe, on my char it's shown as Range 11 (maybe a bonus from STR?).

    So where is the sweet spot here? Where is underthrown and overthrown?

    ty

    Yes thank you. However it just hints at how it work in general. No actual values or formulas :/

    agreed. nothing there that specifically states on a soulglaive the sweet spot is x tiles from target. i suppose the best way to do it is trial and error. get a reg glaive with no mods and start at 1 tile and back up to ten hitting a stationary target. do 10 shots per tile and guage hci and damage. does this make sense?
