hmmm since it lowers physical resistance, should it have any, would this mean it would erase affects like, Phalanx or Damage -% gear in ballista? that would own if it did >:D all those Mages that like to wear Earth staff and full darksteel set... mmmm revenge XD
i just capped Warrior Charge and i just now got this, so havent had many chances to test =P

Notes/Description
*"Special Defense Down" means that this ability will lower a mob's physical damage resistance, should it have any.
*Examples of mobs to use this on: Slimes, Elementals, Skeletons, etc
*If the mob has no physical damage reduction, Tomahawk will have no effect on the mob. Tomahawk has no effect on buffs that increase a mob's defense.
*Consumes one Throwing Tomahawk per use.

This isn't linked to Throwing Skill whatsoever. It's a simple job ability that expends a throwing axe when you have it in ammo slot. The def. down duration is a mystery cause I use it and don't notice it too much. I did notice an "Small".... quote again... "SMALL" increase in DMG to Skellys and Elementals.. but I feel it aint all that.

Throwing Skill does not factor in Tomahawk. When you use it, it hits 100% of the time. The only thing that's different between each use is the lengto hf toe "'Special' DEF Down" Stat. Tomahawk does no damage at all. Some people have tested it in Ballista and Tomahawk doesn't give an icon. I know other WARs who have debated what "Special" DEF does. It could cancel out weapon-type strengths from mobs (I.E. Skeleton's stregth against Daggers). It could factor Weapon Skills or Skill Chains. Basically, no one technically knows what Tomahawk really does. This is kind've bad for us WAR/NINs especially because not only do we have to purchase Shihei, but now we have to buy Throwing Tomahawks as well, that is, if you feel like using the Job Ability. For now, I'm gonna keep that Job Ability until further notice. If nothing happens, then I'm demeriting it and giving Warrior's Charge and upgrade.

I don't think this is linked to throwing, but it would make sense if it was linked.

Hopefully it's an automatic hit when using Tomohawk ability, but I have no clue as of yet.

This lowers(But does not completely remove) a enemies resistence to physical or weapon attacks such as physical damage against elementals or piercing damage vs skeletons. Does nothing to enemies without physical/weapon resistence.
throwing skill?
