When learing or using throwing do you need anatomy?

just to clarify, because this is something that i just learned as well is:

anatomy and tactics raise base weapon damage, not stacking damage increase like on items or honor from bushido or slayers..

Also something to know when raising throwing is that you do NOT want to equip it a shield. It GREATLY reduces your hit chance. I don't know the #s on it but without parry (although from what Ive seen even at 120 parry you suffer a hit chance reduction) and putting a shield in means you'll barely hit anything.

yeah, no reason to wear a shield anyways since you should be staying a good distance away from any target. :)

my throwing is at about 82 so far and i am loving it

Well shields are nice due to all the added bonuses such as you can get HCI... DMG INC.. HPI etc.

Without a shield a suit is a harder to build, but it can be done and my ATC ;-) owns most champs faster than my archers and is pretty decent in pvp too.

Playing on Drachenfels? Speaking German? Tired of exploring Sosaria alone?
