-Question. Does raising your skill in attack spells affect their damage and/or to-hit as with weapons? --Ath'gaar 01:54, May 3, 2010 (UTC)

Melee vs Ranged skill acquisition

Does anyone know if you can raise your skill with a ranged weapon by wielding it in melee? Exempli grata, you want to raise dart or shuriken, but don't want to waste them by chucking them at stuff yet (bc they break). From experimentation it seems the answer is no, but I can find no conclusive information. D4 wryyyy (talk) 10:55, 12 January 2022 (UTC)

Nope, no skill bonus or training when you hit with a wielded missile or launcher. (Daggers don't count as missiles, so you can wield those.) [1] - Andrio Celos (talk) 14:12, 12 January 2022 (UTC)
