By contrast, Warriors and rogues prefer throwing weapons for itemization simplicity (i.e., a single item, no ammo required), and sparingly use them to pull specific mobs into melee range. They also have skills that require Thrown weapon. The early mentioned Deadly Throw and Warriors Shattering Throw.
