Diablo® III

Templar damage question

I'm sure this has been addressed elsewhere, but why is the Templar's damage so low?

Even if I upgrade his weapon to something that should do 10 pts per hit, I only see him hitting for 1 or 2 pts. Why is that?

Because of all the healing spell he has got.

You cant have the best of both healing and damage.

The last patch lowered the follower's damage with weapons. It's not because the Templar can heal. If you don't pick the early healing skills, then you only have the early taunt skills. At the beta's low level cap, the Templar, with taunt based skills, is useless unless you drop below 50% health. It's intended that the follower's do lower damage, but 1-2 damage with a 10 dps weapon is too low. Maybe switch a damage skill out for a early skill, or just raise the weapon damage some.
