Throwing is a weapons skill in Ultima Online which can only be learned by Gargoyles (added with Ultima Online: Stygian Abyss), and replaces Archery as the distance weapon skill. These weapons need no ammo, as they always return to the warrior, but have a certain optimal distance and hitting a foe outside this distance gives a damage penalty. Wearing a shield gives a penalty, unless the Parrying skill has reached an adequate level.
The three trowing weapons are:
- Soul Glaive
Training is the same for all weapon classes. First, buy training from a Warrior Guildmaster until reaching 30 points. After that, only real battle can help to improve. Therefore here the best battlegrounds for the varying skill levels.
|Skill Level||Enemies to battle|
|30 - 60||Skeletons, preferably 1-3 at a time these can be found in any graveyard|
|60 - 70||Lizardmen such as you'd find in the top level of Despise|
|70 - 85||Ogres, again in Despise but at lowest level this time (avoid the Ogre Lords)|
|85 - 100||Earth Elementals found in Shame or Despise level 2|
|100 - 110||Cyclopean Warriors found in Cyclops Valley in the Lost Lands and Despise level 3|
|110 - 120||Troglodytes found in the Painted Caves|
