Default Thrown Weapons talent

Does the +2 DX bonus from Thrown Weapons talent apply to thrown spells as well, since they are targeted the same way?

No, thrown spells are not targeted the same way as they never have to roll to miss.

There are several spells and talents that potentially apply to missile and thrown weapons, missile spells and, imaginably, thrown spells. As far as I can tell, in every instance missile spells are explicitly stated to follow rules more or less like missile weapons, but thrown spells are never said to follow rules more or less like thrown weapons (other than the basic range modifier).

Don't know what's official but my 2 cents...

If MW applies to missile spells, TW should apply to thrown spells. TBH, it seems downright odd that MW applies to spells but I recognize it as a way for casters to improve some spells. Not what I would have done though. I would allow up to 4 repeated investments in a spell. First investment, learns the spell. Second investment grants +1 IQ with the spell. Third, +2 IQ. Fourth, +3 IQ.
