      So after you finish Greirats entire questline and he dies and Shrinemaiden starts to sell his gear, why cant i find throwing knives in her inventory?
      so now i cant get more of these to bait enemies out?

        I found this is better than shiv:

        1. Shiv has glowing purple effect which is very obvious thus your opponent can see it coming and easily dodge it, while throwing knife doesn't, just make sure you're standing in straight line to where your opponent rolled

        2. High base damage, most tryhard will switch their gear for regeneration when their tear pop, when 3 regene item stack together, the shiv is too low damage to finish them, while throwing knife could out damage the regeneration.

        3. Longer range damage + high attack rate + low stamina consumption, even when your opponent have 200-300hp left and they start to back pedal for estus, 2 or 3 hit of this will clear their health instead of wasting your stamina for running R1 chasedown

        Just my personal opinion, feel free to comment this, thank you

          when I use a throwing knife and it kill them I always wonder if they think it's cheap or respect my tactics

            Great for ladders during invasions. Someone running away up a ladder? Pelt them with knives and they will fall off.
            Double points if the fall kills them.

              They can chip health really well. 40 x 20 is 800, that's pretty good, considering that they are cheap and are hard to punish
