    Default Dex to Damage with xbow?

    Title says it all. Is there currently any way to get dex to damage for a crossbow?

    No. Int, Wis and Cha are the only stats that can provide a damage stat for Crossbows.

    Dagger in the Back: You can now use your Dexterity for damage with Daggers and Kukris. If you possess the Weapon Finesse feat, this also applies to melee weapons with which you can use your Dexterity modifier to hit. This enhancement does not work with handwraps or unarmed attacks.

    main toons: Cerrsi(silly caster/xbow) Sttomper (silly barbarian)-jammiee (Silly melee)

    oops, hmm
    Pardon my Ignorance (still learning the game) but how does one deal worthwhile damage without adding a stat?

    You add a stat or pile on absurd amounts of Sneak or other damage. Or preferably both.

    unfortunately, different tack does not work either. that one requires Single Weapon Fighting.

    I'm not sure I understand the question. Is this an "oops I gimped my toon, can anyone help me ungimp it?" query or more of a philosophical "can you build a DPS toon which doesn't add a primary stat to its damage?" koan?

    Because while it is theoretically possible to make e.g. a crossbow build with no stat bonus to damage, why would you do that? There are at least three options for adding INT to damage, a couple of ways to add WIS, and even one way for adding CHA. You can't add every stat to every weapon, of course, but there's always at least one option for adding one stat - even if it's just "pay to unlock the right Universal Enhancement tree."
