Heroic Throw is a core warrior ability learned at level 22. It allows warriors to fling their weapon like a boomerang, dealing damage then returning the weapon to their hand. The most obvious usage of this ability is to make a ranged pull, as opposed to the up-close and personal Charge.
Modified by Edit
- When tanking, this ability can prove useful for making ranged pulls as opposed to using a proper ranged weapon. The additional threat from this attack is also a great boon for holding aggro on a single mob. This attack does more damage than a normal ranged weapon, and it generally quicker to use.
- The attack's animation shows your weapon flying through the air, spinning end over end, regardless of the aerodynamic properties of the weapon (or lack thereof).
