https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Throwing_stick

Irl one of the earliest weapons humanity had was the throwing club or throwing stick, basically it was a piece of wood that hunters would throw at small animals, it was a simple yet effective weapon

I would like to propose that throwing clubs be added to runescape for both f2p and p2p

Basically my idea is this, you use a knife on logs and from each log you can craft 5 throwing clubs, they are stackable and are a thrown weapon.

The advantages of this weapon would be as follows

1. they would be very easy and cheap to make for players, you just use a knife on logs and that’s it, no feathers or smithing required
2.additionally it provides an alternative for woodcutters who don’t want to drop every log in their inventory or bank or trade them or burn them or make them into arrow shafts, they can instead just craft some clubs and gain cheap weapons and some xp,
3. great for giveaways for new players
4. Ideal for cheap ranged training and for people who don’t want to use the chargebow
5. They could be added as a cool new hunter item and tool for current or new hunting targets

The disadvantage of the throwing clubs are as follows
They are quite weak since they are just wood you throw, they are even weaker then darts or knives, maybe they are half as strong as darts or knives or even a third as strong
They have a range of 6 and a speed of Average (3.6s) so not too far of a range and sorta slow
They are weak even at high high levels so using them on nex is not ideal, they would be best for training ranged for low levels or medium levels and for players with low cash


To make them it could be part of the fletching skill or crafting skill, they would give ok xp but again is meant for alternatives for woodcutters

The throwing clubs would follow the usual tier system for wood and maybe use the crossbow stock as a base for what level you need to wield them

thoughts, suggestions?

Whn you use abilities, no ammo is actually used, so you could kill thousands of dragons using only one arrow and still keep it afterwards. Training Ranged is practically free. Creator of the quarterly M.U.P.A.Q. and I.B.A.T.A.W.A.T. Awards™ and writer of the

I still don't understand why people don't use them. Better damage than Legacy, fancy and different attack animations and no actual need for ammo.

i think it's because they prefer the old style of combat

Some people just don't like change, even thought the "new" system is more efficient and even necessary for some content.

another point for this idea is it can be used for new players as very cheap way to use ranged and train it with foes on water or from safespots, if you lose some wood clubs it's not as bad as with arrows

Another cheap way to train Ranged is using the chargebow. And bronze arrows are really really cheap, and easy to make too.

yes but not everyone wants to use bows, they might want to try throwing weapons instead

Like it even makes a difference, certainly at low levels.
