Qyzen Fess Confusion

OK, I love my Consular. Loved the class so much I played it in all three beta weekends I was in and am now just getting through to new quests.

However, my first companion, Qyzen Fess, is confusing.

He is a melee character.

However, all his gear has AIM on it, a stat primarily for ranged classes.

Should I start replacing his gear with Strength gear? what little about him I find online says no.

Any recommendations?

Keep going with the AIM gear. He used to be a ranged character and for whatever reason they never changed his main stat. If you stack strength, as logical as that is, you're going to gimp him.

No each class has a main stat that buffs all of their stuff

Qyzen is nominally a Bounty Hunter/Trooper thus he uses Aim

in the same way a Jedi Consular Shadow should still Stack willpower despite being a Melee class

That follows with what I have found online. Thanks all

When in doubt, hover over the stat in his character sheet. It actually gives him melee and ranged bonuses. Same for most companions, each has a main stat that would not make sense for us to use it in the same kind of role, but it works for them.
