i have never come across any thrown weapons in any elder scrolls game. do you think they could by put in teso? they would be useful for thieves/assasins and would be an alternative to using bow/cbow ranged weapon.

Are those the throwing knives from Assassin's Creed series or what? Because they sure as hell look like 'em. But I'd love to have them avaiblie in TESO,and also Spears from Morrowind.

It would be good...Some poisoned throwing knives could be really good for a sneaky character!

In Morrowind, they had throwing knives and stars. It would be cool to bring them back. You can never go wrong with variety.

Not as equippable weapons. Since the combat is ability based, it would need to be thrown weapon abilities. Like a dagger throw for the NIghtblade, or a hammer throw for the Templar.

Exactly what I was thinking. Since abilities are technically spammable as they said, if you wanted to make a throwing knife thief, if there is a throwing knife ability, you could always prioritize in a (stamina?) build and throw 'em like crazy. Just make sure you know how to watch your resources.

This is another example of how class customization can be awesome :D

The possibilities of adding this kind of throwing weapons is much alike with the possibility of adding spears and pole-arms, I think...I believe that, what they're gonna do with the online, is adding most of the unique options (in battle, weapons etc.) of the TES series so far, in it...So, we may be lucky to see Morrowind's throwing knives and ninja stars in the online game! ;)

I'm giving you a point for the Ma'iq reference.

If there are spears, it would be cool if you could throw them.

You can't spam it that hard. limited by resources. And there is such thing as block to stop stupid people who spam infinite knives. would be funny though.. lol

I don´t like the idea of throwing weapons in MMOs and Hack´n´Slay games. When you equip one dagger for example you have endless shoots with it. That´s unrealistic. It´s not like a bow, there you could say, okay, you have a really big stack of arrows in your back pack. Knives to throw must have a weigth and I think they shouldn´t be primary weapons.

I mind the granate system of Planetside 2 at this place. You can buy yourself granates as equipment, but you can just carry one with by time, maybe advancebal later. I would like to have assassin or sth like that just carry lets say up to 5 throwing knives at the same time. If used right they can be very effective like granates. But they are too mighty to give them more.

And I have to admit that there aren´t only knifes and ninja stars to throw: You can throw axes too
