Tips & Tricks
- No matter what you're playing as, if you happen to find a stack of javelins in the early game and are large enough to throw them, do so; having a decently accurate, moderate damage ranged attack that can be targeted to the edge of your line of sight will greatly increase your ability to survive early ogres and the like. If your target is still near full health when it gets close to you, however, consider making a retreat. Javelins can deal heavy damage when they hit, but they're a bit unreliable.
- Javelins are plentiful in the Shoals; many merfolk (particularly merfolk javelineers) will carry stacks of them, including useful branded ones. Okawaru and Trog will also periodically gift them to followers skilled with Throwing weapons.
- In 0.24, javelins will inherently have the penetration property.
- Prior to 0.18, javelins' throwing speed did not depend on Throwing skill.
