    Default No more charisma to damage?

    I haven't logged on in a while, but today, I noticed that my melee weapons now show STR to damage instead of CHA. I checked my enhancements, and it shows that I took charisma to damage in the swashbuckler tree. Is the display wrong? Is it really using STR for damage?

    Did you manage to get your strength higher than your charisma?

    Do you have the weapon equipped? Some enhancements don't show up until you actually equip the weapon.

    Are you using a finesse weapon?
    Are you single weapon fighting?
    Are you wearing light armor?

    A LOT of things can break the bards CHA to dmg.

    Enhancements since the last patch have been broken for me. Occasionally I need to restart DDO or pay the platinum and do a reset. I lose my immunity to MM and Level Drain. You may be experience the same thing.

    My STR is still lower. I actually equipped several short swords and rapiers ... still showed STR to damage.

    I will try the reset ... I guess that's my only option. Thanks!

    Resetting the enhancement tree worked! Thanks!

    I had a similar problem a long, long time ago. I vaguely recall it had something to do with a bugged buckler with the Tier 3 Skirmisher Swashbuckling style. If you have that enhancement, try unequipping anything in your off hand.
