This simple weapon does not require much in the way of practice to use. However, it does not deal much in the way of damage either. Regardless, it is still a valuable tool to have by one's side in the absence of other ranged attack options.
Thrown at enemies fairly quickly, Throwing Knives do a small amount of damage and can break poise. They are also useful for destroying Poison Jars, Curse Jars, and Corrosive Acid Jars, or for aggroing an enemy at range that the player may not wish to approach for whatever reason. They scale heavily with Dexterity.
