Throwing weapons are equipped in the Ranged or Ammo slot, depending on the item. For the most part, if it's stackable it will go in the Ammo slot, otherwise it will go into Ranged.

Some throwing items, such as boomerangs and chakrams, return when thrown. Others are one-use items, and once thrown are gone.

While a large number of jobs have innate throwing skill, only Ninja possesses a decidedly high proficiency in throwing skill. Ninja is also the only job capable of using the shuriken throwing weapons, well known for their very high base damage and low delay. However, shuriken themselves are limited in availability and often prohibitively expensive in price to make for an effective weapon on the battlefield. Thus, very few throwing weapons (aside from returning weapons often used for pulling) are employed by the majority of adventurers in Vana'diel.

The sweet spot (Strikes True) for throwing weapons is 1.0-2.5 yalms away from the battle target, thus well within the range necessary to perform melee attacks, respectively square hits are of between 2.5-7.5 yalms distance.
