A type of ranged weapon that usually causes only physical damage and doesn't need ammo to use, instead the weapon loses 1 out of 200 durability per throw, and requires a repair once it reaches 0 durability.
Drysc: "The mechanic of thrown weapons is being changed in the expansion to be similar to a normal weapon. Once a stack is used it will remain in your inventory and can then be repaired to refill the stack, similar to repairing broken armor or weapons. This allows us to put stats on thrown weapons and itemize them as we would any other weapon."

There is a bug currently in game that still causes throwing weapons to be used up even though the patch was implemented to stop this. Blizzard claims they are working on a fix for this bug.
