I read the manual regarding combat keys of spell casting and throwing. However, I tried getting out of melee range to use the keys but it didn't respond. I have rocks to throw and a small level of magic. Are these class-specific? My character is a fighter.

Only daggers can be thrown in combat, not rocks. You can't use magic in combat while holding a shield.

I wish I had realized this for my fighter playthrough. I would have traded blocking ability for dagger throwing.

Edit: Quick question. Does using the shield give you any passive bonus to defense?

No. The advantages of a shield are:

- it blocks projectiles.
- it blocks teeth and claws if they come from the right angle.
- it blocks attacks on your left flank.
- it gives you a slightly higher critical hit rate.
