Is it possible to get full attack's worth of attacks when throwing a weapon with returning magical ability? If not, are there ways to get returning to each of thrown weapons without investing lots of money to multiple copies of returning thrown weapons?


1 Answer 1


A returning weapon will

Return to the wielders hand at the start of their next turn

This means that you only get one attack with one such weapon, regardless of your BAB. If you want to throw the same weapon multiple times, look at the blinkback belt. That item

Returns the weapon to the wielder after the attack is resolved

Which means, during the same turn, allowing it to be thrown again.

Now; this takes your belt slot, so you will give up your belt of dexterity (unless your GM allows you to combine items), so that is something to keep in mind

    \$\begingroup\$ One's DM might allow the use of a Blinkback glove, amulet, magic trinket, or something of the sort - sometimes at an additional gold cost, sometimes at no extra cost at all. Talk to your DM, they might have a solution for you. (Maybe even allowing to put Blinkback on the weapon itself.) \$\endgroup\$
