Does it have any effects? Does it drag the target towards the Barb?
So far they only showed the un-runed version .. it only does ranged damage (probably calculated based on weapon damage or something) .. but with runes it might do a lot of other different stuff ... allowing you to pull an enemy from afar for some up close and personal melee clobbering isn't a so far fetched rune effect (and a nifty MK Scorpion homage .. "Get Over Here!" anyone) .. in fact i'd like to see that one happen XD
1. Turn it into a projectile that bounces between enemies. Ever saw Xena: Warrior Princess?
2. Turn it into a projectile that stuns enemies.
3. Chuck enemy corpses at enemy about-to-become-corpses.
Are you sure that's the same skill .. i was given the impression that the "Throw Weapon" skill shown in the runes part is different from the "Ancient Spear" skill shown a few minutes before it (right along with Meteor being shown) .. i had the impression they are two different skills .. maybe i'm wrong .. cna someone confirm this XD
