Throwing weapons are equipped in the offhand slot, depending on the item.
Some throwing items, such as boomerangs and chakar, return when thrown. Others are one-use items, and once thrown are gone.
While all jobs have an innate throwing skill, only Ninja possesses a decidedly high proficiency in throwing skill. Ninja is also the only job capable of using the shuriken throwing weapons, well known for their very high base damage and low delay. However, shuriken themselves are limited in availability and often prohibitively expensive in price to make for an effective weapon on the battlefield.
