With this new feat coming down the pipe....

Brutal Throw
Prereqs: +1 Base Attack Bonus, 13 Strength
Benefit: You can use your Strength bonus instead of Dexterity bonus to determine bonus to attack with thrown weapons if it is higher.
Special:This feat can be selected by fighters as a fighter bonus feat.

How about some spiffy new thrown weapons to go with it?

With the Ranger capstone:

Ranger Master of Archery
Through extensive practice and incredible focus you can fire any ranged weapon at amazing speed without losing accuracy. You gain a 25% competence bonus to your attack speed when using any ranged weapon, including thrown weapons

Having some viable and useful options for thrown weapons, ones that would compare with Epic bows (like Epic Thornlord, Epic Tortured Livewood, etc)....how about it?

Would give some options....and another interesting build to run with.

Thoughts?

Having thrown weapons equivalent to Epic bows would still not make them viable options. Without manyshot and improved precise shot, it's going to take fundamental changes to the way ranged combat is handled (and a lot of bug fixes) to make throwing weapons useful.

A useful comparison is to look at the special meteor thrown weapon, available only inside Accursed Ascension. That weapon does an insane 200 damage per hit, and yet it is frequently a damage downgrade compared to a regular +5 holy maul.
