The category of thrown weapons (also called throwing weapons) consists of a large number of miscellaneous projectiles, ranging from projectile weapons like the sling to thrown items such as darts to explosive weapons like the depth charges. Despite the diversity of items available, thrown weapons are relatively unpopular, and are bought by only three classes: the Illusionist, the Ninja, and the Thief.

Somewhat unusually, all four classes are involved in the production of some thrown weapons, and many of the possible combinations are represented. Like many of the item classes in the game, thrown weapons are difficult to sell on the high end, with the forsaken and golden shuriken the only non-token recipes available.

The following table shows the properties of all thrown weapons in Swords & Potions. Token recipes are indicated by blue shading.
