Actually the Flame Boomerang can't be used by a NIN, so this makes it the tied-for-lowest leveled throwing weapon a NIN can use. And the Platoon Disc is 50k as opposed to the Edge's 5k (on Titan).

So I'd say this is useful in some instances.

This item also rarely drops from BCNM20 Charming Trio in Balgas Dias (spelling?).

This boomerang is completely useless.

Let's look at the facts: it can be used by thief or ranger at 20, does 13 dam and has 294 delay.

The flame boomerang has the same dam, the same delay, can be used a level earlier, can be used by WAR as well as THF and NIN, has additional fire damage and has additional protection vs. fire.

Not only that but the price of this piece of junk is about 5k at jeuno (caitsith) and the flame boomerang is less than half that.

Argument over!

This should be under the ranged category, It's a boomerang.

FYI I sent in the correction.

Whats the Key to being good at FFXI?
Time-the overriding factor in "how good" a player is.
Intelligence-governs how succesfully a player uses his/her time.
Money-Overrides Time by simply being able to buy gil, which is the lifeblood of this game.
