    from having twisted in whirling wrists on multiple builds in the last month, I can tell you it's still a mandatory twist for any thrower build. you may be disappointed with it, I'm just glad it's there.

    was in an 8th life specifically building a toon to use shuriken as my primary wpn... rethinking that option after having read this thread. For what it's worth, TURBINE please fix throwing wpn speeds.

    While I love my (shuriken) thrower I would like to add to the call to fix the broken enhancements and give throwers some love.

    Please Devs spend some time on this.

    I second the bump. I seriously don't know how they can release content that simply doesn't function at all. This is not the only thing that doesn't work for shurikens and not the only thing that doesn't work in general as per the description. It wasn't always like this for this game, but over the last couple years, the quality has really been way below average considering a lot of people pay monthly for the game and they charge heafty premiums; more than what most paid for the game at release, for expansions that just pile on the non functional content. If they are going to have a preview server where they collect feedback, it would be nice to actually fix the things we report on within a couple of patches. There are Epic Destiny feats that still do not work that have been reported on since they were released and are still not fixed.

    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    The more research I do and the more I play around with throwers, the more I think this statement is false. The above poster clearly doesn't know what he is talking about.

    That being said, fixes for those bugs would be swell.

    I totally lol'd.

    And agree that there are a lot of things in the enhancements that APPEAR as if serious thought has gone into making them useful, but bugginess or general lack of support in other areas / etc. essentially kneecaps them.

    Default Thanks, Devs!

    Thanks for adding the issue to the Known Issues list.

    We'll look forward to the fix when you're able to get it to us. We know you're pretty busy, ridding the worlds of Ghostbane and all.

    roll one first and then judge.

    If you doubt, you haven't played one.

    Is this the day of the internet putting a filter over every post where people reading it have to pretend they are my daughter and trying to find drama?

    I laughed, because the poster Flavious said he disagreed with WAS HIMSELF. It was either clever (and funny) or unintended (and both ironic and funny).

    Then I supported his stance because there are several trees that specify certain weapons (say, great crossbows, throwing, shurikens, etc). and the like that make it APPEAR as if the devs actually were trying to make those options truly viable ... but the lack of support in other areas (say nifty named weapons, other syngeries) or bugs (like crit range expanders not working) make it so those things are still really not that strong.

    I have made a go recently at great crossbows for the fun of it with some twink crafted stuff. I have a shuriken thrower currently.

    Don't try to make someone who's agreeing with you into someone you insist isn't ;-)

    Thank you Devs, from the bottom of my heart.

    I won't start whining for an ETA and constantly bumping this thread for at least 1 week, I promise. Merry Christmas.

    It was intentional, and thank you . I'm not that rude when speaking to strangers - at least I try not to be.

    It wasn't clear you had one from your posts.

    Which build did you go with?

    Default Thanks for What?

    While it is not a bad thing that this broken piece of content has made it to the bug/fix list, I am certainly not going to thank the devs for it. I don't make a habit of thanking someone for recognizing that their product doesn't work, I thank them for quickly fixing it. Not fixing it or letting it sit for months is not what I would call worthy of my thanks. Just saying, I expect certain things in my every day life that I expect for all things I pay for. I paid for this and the last expansion above and beyond my monthly payments to Turbine and there is still tons of non functional content. So, I'll pass on all the "thanks yous" for now.
