What Parsing tool do you use?
If we know your method, maybe some of us can help fill in the gaps with the companions that are missing.

I still don't understand why melee 1 handed users (Yunn) are so much lower dps than ranged blaster riffle users (Lt. Pierce), they should be even now, so it's just some strange hard coded damage difference.
Well Yuun was bugged back in 2.x era so I assume since launch where some of the abilities were boosted by Willpower instead of Aim. I am guessing the ability is still boosted by willpower but since i can put willpower gear on the companion to test can't say for certain. I vaguely recall several other companions had similar issues, perhaps some other old timers can help remember which ones they were and we can figure out if they are under performing now.


I believe parsec tracked companions. Google found this https://parsec.codeplex.com/

Companions no longer gain stats from gear. Also Willpower, Aim, etc have all been replaced with Mastery.

Does anyone know how blizz does? I leveled him to 50 for a few reasons. #1 I love Jawa's. #2 He has a large influence gain from almost every type of gift so it was super easy to level.

He put a link to the parse app he uses under the Parse section. Let us know what you find.

If anyone is interested, the new Gamorean Bodyguard parsed a respectable 5718 dps against the fleet target dummy at lvl 50 influence.

OP, you've done an awesome job.

I wonder what the variance is for these DPS parses. I ran four 1M dmg parses on the fleet operations dummy with a level 50 Kira (alll datacrons, buffs, but no other effects or gear) and got the following:

Parse 1: 5030 dps
Parse 2: 5301 dps
Parse 3: 4942 dps
Parse 4: 4973 dps

For reference, my level 1 2V-R8 parsed at 3409 dps the one time I ran him.

Marr makes for a good tanking companion....IF you are like me and don't give a flying piece of bantha dung about KotFE/KotET that is.

Thanks for the great guide!


I must be slow but how do you set Parsec to just show companion DPS? Thanks
