Throwblast is an item available in Dragon's Dogma.
- "A small explosive of flammable powder packed into a flask. Handle with extreme care."
Produces a small explosion that sends smaller targets flying, causing knockdown if not death, whilst staggering larger ones. Much of the damage is based in the explosive in the item, and not on the user's skill, making throwblasts very useful against strong enemies, even at a low level - the power also increases with the thrower's core strength It may inflict burning.
Throwblasts are also effective against grounded large flying enemies - in addition to the damage inflicted, it will also make them stagger when hit. This is very useful to prevent them from taking flight, especially in the case of the Griffin, which is prone to flying off from battle. Against Dragonkin it will sometimes interrupt their breath attack, spell casting, or cause them to drop a Pawn they are attempting to possess.
These are an effective way of dealing with Ghosts - a throwblast used near or on a possessed ally will usually fully destroy any of their variants at even full health. Throwing a throwblast against a nearby wall will dislodge a ghost that's latched onto the Arisen's head.
Tarring a foe first will double damage.
- May be found in chests throughout Gransys and Bitterblack Isle.
- A bundle of 18 throwblasts can be found in The Warriors' Respite.

- Throwblasts are more effective than Dragon's Spit when dealing with well defended enemies - Dragon's Spit is weaker but the fire explosion strikes more times, whilst throwblast has a single blast that is better able to break defenses.
