@kreutzgang Yeah. I know that there's not really any reference to such abilities in actual norse mythology (so far as I know), but it's so expected and badass that I guess I just took it as a given that it would be throwable. God of War nailed the feeling with the Leviathan axe. I woulda thought Ubisoft would have jumped at the chance to put their spin on "the real deal."
As the title says, I'm pretty sure every player in the game would love for Mjolnir to have a throw and return functionality. To keep it balanced, it could be made to consume an adrenaline charge. Also, I don't see how it would break balance, since while it is in flight, you'd have no weapon in that hand.
The animation could simply be a quick cast deal, where Eivor chucks it out in whichever direction he's facing, say... 20-30 ft, and lightning crackles off the hammer in a small aoe along the path of the throw. Obviously, the knockdown/knockback would have to affect all opponents (hence, the adrenalin cost). Then the hammer automatically returns to Eivor's hands with a satisfying thud.
I mean, c'mon. Who doesn't want to do that with Mjolnir? To keep things fair, Gungnir could be charged to cast lightning bolts like javelins. Same deal, adrenaline cost. Excalibur could do a ground stab shockwave of light with knockback. And so on. Buy mostly, Mjolnir.
