Large rocks are massive throwing weapons. Only trolls, ogres, and giants have the sheer size necessary to throw these effectively. For those who can throw them, they have the best damage and lowest base mulching rate of any thrown projectile (4%).
While improving your Throwing skill will improve both damage and accuracy, strength is the greatest contributor to their effectiveness.
You can occasionally find them on the floor, but they are most often seen in the inventories of cyclopes and stone giants, who enjoy throwing them at you. They are always generated unbranded... unless, that is, you find a branded ammunition shop, which may offer you large rocks with the following brands:
- Prior to 0.16, they had a mulch rate of 2%, and their range was somewhat randomized; attempting to throw them long distances with low strength would often result in a toss that comes short of its target.
- In 0.13, large rocks were inherently penetrating.
- Prior to 0.11, mulching a large rock would create a stack of stones.
