But, if the players want to Throw other items or enemies, that is also a viable Build in Baldur’s Gate 3.

What Is Throwing In Baldur’s Gate 3?

Throw/Throwing is an action in Baldur’s Gate 3 that allows players to Throw items, creatures and enemies.

The players can use Throw action on units depending on their strength stat.

Thus, if a player has low strength stats, chances are they cannot Throw any unit they want.

Furthermore, players who Throw heavier objects deal even more damage.

If the players want to damage enemies, they must Throw huge boulders, crates or even enemies with a substantial amount of weight.

Throw/Throwing is an action that scales with the strength of the players in Baldur’s Gate 3.

However, the Throw action will fail if the enemy or the item is heavier than what the players can handle.

Thus, we advise players to invest sufficiently in their strength stat to get the best output from the Throw action.

Furthermore, whenever you are following a Build guide, please make sure to use it as a base rather than a strict guide that you must adhere to.

However, if you are a new player and want to try out a Build guide, follow it completely and after you understand the mechanics, start adding your twists to it.

Items Required For A Throwing Build In BG3

Before we dive into the items for a Throwing Build in BG3, you first require a custom character. Here are some of them;

1. Create A Custom Character

First, create a custom character to Throw a Build in Baldur’s Gate 3.

The character needs to be of a specific race which is Githyanki.

Githyanki inherently has a higher strength stat than most of the species in the game. Furthermore, players must take the background as an Outlander.

This background provides players with proficiency in Athletics and Acrobatics.

Furthermore, players must take the class as a rogue. This allows the players to obtain the thief subclass.

The thief subclass allows players to jump long stretches, which is an excellent combination with Githyanki’s jump skill.

2. Items Required

Players can choose from a good amount of items for the Build.

However, if you do not find the items below, you can customize your Build with items that provide strength. 

The items you will need for the Throwing Build in Baldur’s Gate 3 are listed below;

Ring of Flinging+1d4 to damage on throwing
Gloves of Uninhibited Kushigo+1d4 to damage (and attack rolls) on throwing
HamarhraftWhen the wearer jumps, they deal 1d4 thunder damage in a 10 ft radius upon landing
Caustic Band+2 Acid damage to weapon hits

Players can also use daggers and axes to Throw at their enemies.

Furthermore, they can become Berserker during the character customization panel.

This allows players to access the Enraged Throw ability.
