Thrown weapons are weapons that deal thrown damage. These weapons will have extra accuracy against monsters with a specific weakness to thrown weapons, and a smaller bonus against monsters with any ranged weakness. As with all ranged weapons, thrown weapons are generally moderately effective against monsters that are weak to melee, and less effective against monsters weak to magic.

Comparison table[edit | edit source]

In this table, darts are used as the ordering principle for the sake of clarity and concision. However, since weapon statistics are largely determined by tier, other weapon types of the same tier (often corresponding with the same metal type) can largely be interchanged with one another for quicker/easier reference (at least in the lower tiers; i.e. bronze-dragon). This principle should not be used without any consideration, however, as weapons become more nuanced and it begins to break down as you increase in tier.

  • For example: bronze darts have identical stats to bronze knives, and thus the table entry for bronze darts can effectively be used interchangeably with bronze knives if a player so needed.
  • Bronze throwing axes, on the other hand, have identical stats to bronze javelins, both of which have a higher damage value than the darts/knives. However, due to their slower attack speed, the damage output rate for each pair of weapon types is functionally the same.
