Underthrow accuracy decrease.

    Does anyone know for sure if it's Dexterity or Swords that compensates for the close range accuracy decrease on a Throwing weapon?

    Stratics: "Close Quarters Combat: Being too close to a target would normally cause ineffective throws. However, Swordsmanship skill can compensate for this, with Legendary skill even giving a slight bonus."

    Compare to UO Guide: "Close Quarters Combat - Even though they may be meant to be thrown, these weapons all have sharp, mean edges on them - perfect for catching an unsuspecting melee fighter off guard. A player’s Dexterity and throwing skill equal to Grandmaster or higher can compensate for the hit chance penalty. Close quarters combat with a throwing weapon will no longer require you to have the swordsmanship skill to negate hit chance penalty."

    Anyone play tested these rules and has an opinion?

    UOGuide is correct. At one point it was swords, but not anymore.

    Tinsil is correct, Swords is no longer needed on a Thrower.. unless you want to that is
