Description[edit | edit source]
A sling has a small cradle or pouch in the middle of two lengths of cord. It is a fairly simple yet effective ranged weapon used to hurl stones.
Note: Slings, like in NWN1, can be used with shields. Slings also add the wielder's Strength modifier to their damage, but, like other ranged weapons, use the wielder's Dexterity modifier for any attack bonuses.
Also, take note of the fact that the character sheet can be inaccurate about in-game numbers. In this case, small characters cannot use slings two-handed and do not gain the corresponding increase in the Strength bonus to damage, even though the character sheet reflects this as happening. Enabling combat debugging in a training module and examining a fight shows this definitively, as the strength bonus to damage is clearly labeled.
