Throwing Knives are sets of small knives that can be thrown at an enemy. They differ from Daggers in that instead of a melee combo chain, they have a ranged knife-throwing combo. Due to this throwing knives are more long-range oriented than daggers. Other than that, knives use the same skill set as daggers, and a pirate's skill with them is defined by the same level.
A beginning pirate does not have the dagger skill. It must be learned by completing the dagger quest after Notoriety level 10. Abilities with a dagger increases its lethal damage and variety of daggers the pirate can use.
A powerful advantage of the throwing knives is in its use against voodoo wielding enemies. The Asp, Throw Dirt and Viper's Nest throws all unattune the enemy's voodoo doll from the pirate, earning them freedom from voodoo attacks until the enemy can attune them again.
Many enemies in the Caribbean attack using daggers such as the Undead Gravediggers, Undead Mutineers, Undead Brigands, Undead Slashers, Undead Raiders, and the Undead Captains. The EITC Black Guard Thugs, Hired Guns and Assassins also use daggers. Even some of Davy Jones's crew use daggers like Dregs, and Kelpbrains.
Types of Knives
