I just ran a parse and confirmed, all of Torian's attacks are Tech or Physical, I would assume if he did a Force attack, it might be willpower based. One challenge with these companions is you'll always have to craft their mainhand weapon, since there are no drops or com purchases for a melee aim mainhand. I'd guess that people think they do less dps because they don't take the time to setup their mainhand correctly. Main and offhand make a big difference for companions since most of their damage comes from basic attacks.

My companion parses over 5k dps in HM Star Fortress, does yours?
