    Throw Damage?

    I know for melee/bow, 1 point in strength(melee)/dex(Bow) equals 1% enhanced damage.

    Isn't it different for throwing weapons?

    Yes. Javelins, Throwing Knives and Throwing Axes get .75 per 1 strength, and .75 per 1 dex (so 100 strength = 75% ED, and 100 dex also give 75% ED).

    The exception to this is the amazon only javelins, which instead gain .80 per 1 strength, and .50 per 1 dex.

    Throwing Potions don't gain any bonus's though.


    Edit: I guess it should be noted that not all melee weapons have a bonus of 1 per strength too. Daggers are .75 per str and .75 per dex. Mace's are 1.1 per strength (so 100 str = 110% ED).

    Almost, but not quite, right.

    For hammers it's 1.1 per str
    For knifes, throwing weapons* and claws it's 0.75 per str and 0.75 per dex
    For ama-spears and -javelins it's 0.8 per str and 0.5 per dex
    For bows and xbows it's 1 per dex
    For everything else* it's 1 per str


    *Throwing potions gets no bonus.


    [Edit] Bah. Silly Orphan...
    Not all maces gets 1.1 btw, only war hammer, maul, great maul and their excep/elite versions.

    Yea, I was thinking of Hammers, but said Maces instead.
