Thanks everyone for the replies!  Special thanks to Nightingale & Silveredge!  Great info!

I plan to play this character as mainly range.  Only engage in melee if I have to (I have other melee characters).  Sit behind the front line and pew pew away.

Think I'm enjoying the Heavy Xbow.  As Taser mentioend, it feels like the perfect middleman.  I want a little more punch the regular Xbow.  But Arb's reload time is so long.  Heavy Xbow has a nice all-around fell to it.

Mind you, I suck.  But last night I did go 8-2.  Had 3 headshots whiched helped.

At lvl 34 and have 170 WPF.  Thinking I'll increase it to 180 (as I have points to spend, but was saving them to find a nice WPF).

Does 180 WPF sound good for Heavy Xbow?  Or should I go 185 or 190?

Here's what my build will look like at lvl 35.  Not sure exactly how to distribute the WPF.

And one more quick question:  Does effective weight effect Xbows just like Archery & Throwing?  Or is it not a factor for Xbows?

Basically; 180 WPF is good for heavy xbow; though your effective weapon proficiency might be lower depending on how heavy your armor is. Which is deducted from your total wpf. So without knowing what armor you go with I can't really say 100% that you are fine with 180 but likely you will be fine... if that makes sense.
 IF you arent I would recommend reducing weight.

and yes Weight has a larger effect on xbows.

one more thing: get a light head protection, heavy helmets have an effect on your accuracy

tbh I find transitional, sugarloaf and hourglass gauntlets are my preferred crossbow armour.

Thanks for the feedbacks!  Keeping the armor light sense I'll play ranged from behind the lines.

Weight
Head:  .5
Body:  5.0
Hands:  .5
Feet:  .5

So even with the multipliers on head and hands, I won't have enough weight to lose any WPF.

So I'm going to try 180 and see how that goes.  If I feel I need more, I'll bump up to 185 or 190.  But a difference of 10 Xbow WPF would give me nearly 40 more 2-hand WPF (92 instead of 55).  Will probably stick with 180.

what I´ve heard is that you don´t get any penalties if you stay under 10 Weight overall, so you can add up a little bit here,  I f.e. got an armor with 9,1 weight

hot tip: I prefer wearing +3 leather gloves, not only do they get +4 Armor in total, they also loose all their weight when you heirloom them

Thanks for the tips!  I actually know how effective weight works.  Head armor is x2.  And hand armor weight is x4.  If I'm remembering correclty.

I knew that it affected archery & throwing.  Just couldn't remember if it affected Xbows.  I thought it did.  Just wasn't sure.  Thought about going heavy armor.  But sticking with what I got.  Looking good is most important!   :)

Yeah that will work fine. You could stand to improve your armor/weight/wpf ratio but cRPG is about those stylish fashion choices- to hell with the penalties.
