    Default What could I craft thats 'good' on a throwing weapon?

    Here's the deal with cannith crafting and throwing weapons:

    After looking at the crafting recipies for throwing weapons, I have to admit, somehow, I seem a bit...disappointed. So far, the only thing I've found that works for throwing weapons is a throwing hammer, and at first, I thought I would be excited to actually craft a throwing weapon...but the problem that lies firsthand is that most DPS usually comes from 'primary' weapons, such as martial and exotic melee and bow weapons. Second, its difficult to construct something with the right 'level'; in fact, just to make +5, you have to be level 10 alone, and frankly, you might as well reach level 20 and make a throwing weapon then. And third, compared to greensteel weapons that usually have higher damage die and a lower minimum level, you might as well save up and make a throwing weapon made of greensteel instead of cannith crafting, if you want a non-specific throwing weapon and you don't want to waste a lot of time and resources in the crafting hall.

    That being out of the way, is there any other viable weapon combinations to make besides the ones I'm about to list? Here are the types of weapons im thinking of:


    • +5 Holy of Greater X Bane
    • +5 Holy of Effecient Metamagic - X(For throwing when all spells are on cooldown.)

    Yeah my friend had some level 13 ML Vorpal throwing axes which came in really handy for quests like Chains of Flame (before U9). I wasn't sure if crafting allowed vorpal yet. Life stealing would be another fun one if that's ever put into a recipe. I also know someone who had randomly +5 Metalline Returning Throwing Axes of Pure Good that they used for the Epic Demon Queen. I don't suppose "Weapon Focus: Thrown" will be a shard recipe any time soon like the Gloves of Forgotten Craft from Gianthold Tor.

    I crafted a telekenetic hammer of staggering blows to experiment with knocking folks down (not working too well though).

    I also made an unholy returning shuriken of lesser vampirism (before it was clarified that vampirism doesn't work on a thrower - still a cool looking item).

    I have a cursepewing returning shuriken of destruction that is pretty sweet (this is a relatively low level item and useful in a party).

    Default be careful with your throwers. min level bug may kill all dreams

    I made a +4 holy thrower of pg to mess around and it was level 17





    I am curious if we could even make a +5 holy of greater bane with the min level bugs being this high. Some one told me the base returner thrower is already a +2 at the start of its crafted life. Apparently that is why it is two levels above a ordinary +4 holy of pg weapon. I made it fast when i was level 15 and to my surprise after using the +4 shard It out levelled my toon. UUUUGH. freaking min level bug! They got to fix this!

    Oh and crafting works on almost all throwing weapons with a prefix and suffix. It wont work on a ordinary random +4 cold iron thrower. You need to find soemthing like +1 ice thrower of shattermantle or something. then you can decon it and craft.. I have no idea why it wont work on a normal random generated thrower with no prefix or suffix.

    Crafting is still very wonky and until they fix the min level bug we may be up the creek for uber throwers. I would suggest just making greensteel stuff. It is much more powerful and can have much more fun effects.

    Glad this thread popped up as I didn't think we could disjunct and craft on returning throwing weapons. So the key is that the returner needs to have a prefix and suffix first, before it can be blanked?

    I made...

    +5 Holy Cold Iron of Evil Outsider Bane so my rogue would have something to throw in eDQ.
    +4 Telekinetic Shuriken of Pure Good as an experiment and it's somewhat amusing.

    I occasionally stumble across random drops with no pre/suf that disjunct just fine. BtA end rewards seem to do disjunct with no problems as well.

    I only ever tried deconning on some throwers i had in the bank and a few from ah with metal effects on em already. They may have been Turn is for collectibles from when i first started playing. That may be why some of the throwers you see on ah are not craftable maybe?

    Thanks for insight . i only tried a few . Will try deconning the rest i have horded in hopes of getting a metal property on one.

    I think it was suspected that throwers obtained from broken barrels/boxes could not be disjuncted while ones that came from chests/end rewards could. Someone was experimenting as to whether adding "Cold Touch" to an uncraftable thrower with the Risia recipees would key that thrower for crafting.
