    Both

    Treat quantity the same as durability, but each throw removes exactly one durability. You need quantity replenishment or use them only for early bosses like Blood Raven until down to a one, then only for blade Assassins or act two mercs.

    Items with quantity have durability too. It's something like 3 times as much durability as quantity. IOW, yes, they will slowly lose quantity if you melee with them.

    You'll only lose Javelin quantity when you actually throw them.

    If your using them as a Javazon with Charged Strike or Lightning Strike, then I would think ethereal is desireable (I use ethereal Thunderstrokes on my Javazon- but I never chuck 'em), but with the 'throw' skills like Plague Javelin or Lightning Fury, then you probably want non-ethereal sticks.

    I have a set of ethereal javelins on a mule. I'll give them to you and you can melee a normal cow level with them. If you give them back after that's over with the same quantity as when I gave them to you, you win.

    My Bad.

    The loss of quantity is small when used in melee, but it is there. I stand corrected.

    Thanks for setting me straight.

    (Hmm. Anyone want a slightly used set of Ethereal Thunderstrokes. . .:scratch: )
