Throwing Axes-NaB

Post by Hidetade » Sat Mar 31, 2012 4:58 am

Forum Date/Time: 3/31/2012

Server Rev #: 4834

World Location Coordinates, Macrozone, Microzone: any

Character Information (race, class, level): 75 Aelfborn Warrior

Bug Summary: Throwing weapons are not able to use Axe/Hammer Mastery powers (which from my recollection prior to shutdown, you could use Axe/Hammer Mastery powers with Throwing)


Steps to Reproduce: Train Axe/Hammer to 100%, equip a throwing weapon, and attempt to use an Axe/Hammer mastery weapon power. You receive the response "Right Hand contains restricted piece of equipment".

Additional Information: I looked through the patch notes all the way back to patch 10 and did not find a change listed to make it so that Weapon Mastery powers couldn't be used with throwing weapons.

I think this is how it worked for throwing hammers and axes for a long time. The fact that Dagger Mastery powers worked with throwing daggers was an exception until it was nerfed in Patch 24.3.

You could use the regular powers, not the mastery powers.

You could use axe, hammer, or dagger powers as long as you were in close combat range and not out in throwing range. You could never use the mastery powers though.

Yeah, the patch near the end that restricted normal mastery powers from throwing weapons, BM, BW, and SD. It was a dumb friggen change, but its the way it is.

Okay. Bad memory when it came to throwing, considering they've done so much to screw it up over the years. Character deleted (LOL).

locking thread too!
