Throwing Mastery is a Barbarian Skill in Diablo II.


Although not as well known for their use of bows and other such ranged weapons, hunters from the Steppes have practiced the use of thrown weapons since earliest times. The open grasslands of their native soil are well suited for taking down game with swift and accurate blows from a hurled blade. It seems a natural evolution and a simple matter for them to have transferred this skill to combat.

General InformationEdit

Throwing Mastery is one of the Barbarian weapon mastery skills, passively improving the Barbarian's fighting skills when throwing a weapon. Its effect applies to all thrown categories, including potions and even Double Throw. This skill is usually the least used of Combat Masteries, as thrown weapons are very rarely put to main builds.

When used in melee, throwing weapons gain benefit from their respective Mastery class (such as Axe Mastery for Throwing Axe), and not from this skill, further diminishing its usefulness.
