Black hurthling quarrels are missiles that cannot be fired without a hand crossbow. They have default stats of (+1, 1d3+2), although variations from this are common.


Hand crossbow ammunition is quite rare, and cannot be used with regular crossbows, just like quarrels cannot be used with hand crossbows. There is also no slaying ammunition available for hand crossbows, except for suffixes. Both weapons do use the same skill.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. In addition, they are shot by black hurthlings.
