It's a bit extreme, but not really too extreme.

Don't be surprised if underwater combats involve people using these without proficiency.

Now Neptune can throw his trident underwater. Good job!

I like the idea, the design and all, but really, the damage is too high for a one-handed weapon, even exotic, and the range is just too high for a thrown weapon. You can't really throw a trident as far as you would shoot a shortbow, would you? -HarrowedMind (talk) 23:24, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Two-handed exotic weapon can deal atrocious damage or have powerful reach, if you blow a feat on a weapon it better be worth a damn feat. Also throwing weapon range is abysmal in base DnD, I will never pretend to go for realism and not it not realistic. Realism in DnD is just bad because it only affect some classed and archetype while letting the stronger archetype completely unscathed. --Leziad (talk) 23:30, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
This is a one-handed weapon though, not a two-handed one. Very few people can dual-wield shortbows. But keep in mind, HarrowedMind, thrown weapons only get half as many increments. --Foxwarrior (talk) 23:40, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
3d4 is still lower than 2d8 (fullblade). I for one do not hold the bastard sword in any esteem as a good exotic weapon. --Leziad (talk) 23:42, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
