Throwing Axes

Recommended Posts

My current playthrough is not utilizing the most current version of Fixpack or Tweaks, so let me know if this has already been addressed.

It appears that throwing axes are not benefitting from the strength bonus to damage.  Whereas it appears slings are.  I don't know if this has anything to do with the fact that slings are a launcher and throwing axes have no launcher.  If so, I suspect throwing daggers and darts may have a similar issue.

I believe this is by design as I've not seen anything in-game that suggest they should have bonus damage. The only official source that touches on this is the manual, which states that the strength damage bonus is explicitly for melee weapons:

IWD manual, pg 132

Dam Adj: Added or subtracted from the damage inflicted by a succussful [sic] melee attack.
