The Steel throwing axe, like all throwing axes, is a member's onlyRanged throwing weapon. To wield a steel throwing axe the player must have at least 20 Ranged. The steel throwing axe can be wielded with a shield for protection.
They can be obtained either by buying from the Tribal Weapons store at the Ranging Guild, a drop from Gnoeals, or trading with another player.
All thrownaxes with the exception of Morrigan's are mostly considered useless by players, as a shortbow or composite bow can fire at the same speed or faster, and have better accuracy and the arrows have more power and are much easier to buy or replace.
