A while back (many, many, months ago), there was a post saying that this ability would be getting some love in an upcoming mod.

Was this idea scrapped?

I think it did get some love, between mods 7 and 8. But it was insufficient?

Yeah:

The thrown weapons speed bonus from Ten Thousand Stars has been increased.

They should call it 2-1/2 stars.

They increased the number of stars thrown at some point between the introduction of the monks and now... it just still sucks. I think, but am not certain, that they hinted that they may revisit this enhancement again for some more lovin' at some point. However that is a suspension that is more vague and mysterious, rather then vast & mysterious™.

They should just change it to a many shot type enhancment that increases the number thrown based off your BAB. At least people would be chucking 3 stars by 16.

That's the change a dev posted was coming at some point.

I'd have to dig up the post though.

Maybe the could convert it to a Bard Ability and rename it?

The biggest problem with the power is a conceptual one. With a name like Ten-thousand Stars, you'd expect the monk to jump into the air, then carpet an area with shuriken.

I envisioned it more like the Monk leaps up high into the air and brings down an ocean of stars to blanket an area completely in shuriken(or if a single target, a river of stars slams into the victim, coating them in shuriken until nothing else is visible). I.e., "Ten Thousand Stars", all at once.

Well they couldn't very well call it 'fourteen stars' now could they?

Maybe if they made manyshot work with thrown.. the speed increase might actually be worth something.

I want to blanket stuff in throwing stars :P
