[DPS] Thrower – Weapon Throw Warrior

Thrower warrior


In this edition, we’re going to see another not so well known side of the warriors that could turn up into a “different” 4th spec. It is fairly common, though, to see this kind of warriors both in the Horde and the Alliance. Many trolls and dwarves specialize in throwing weapons, this is the case of most Wildhammer dwarves or Axethrower trolls. Both using weapons as ammunition.

I’d like to thank Filôscuro, who has helped greatly on its realisation.
