Templar Follower Damage per second: 73.00
Weapon DPS: 49.2, +127 STR
Rings: 4-8 damage, 3-6 damage
Total STR bonus from items: 223
In details it says that the DPS is increased 687.50% by STR bonus, but somehow STR barely effects the follower's DPS.
My demon hunter which does not scale with STR has 231.08 damage with that single weapon(no arrmor rings and other boosts).
Are followers ment to be so weak or am I doing something wrong? Because my follower deals 73.00 DPS with the best items I could find for him, while i do 1498.99 DPS
I've noticed this as well. Experimenting with various combinations of items, the listed damage is 15% of what it should be.
eg, 10-18 damage
58% bonus from strength
1.38 attacks per second
no crit chance
= 30.5256 dps
Listed damage is 4.58 dps.

What a pitty :( I heart that they made the followers very viable, watched some videos before release of the game, but it seems that they have nerfed them a bit too much :/. I guess I'll pass and leave the follower behind. Full XP here I come!
They need to document this somewhere. It changes the balance of the followers considerably. The templar, with his shield and high strength, is still useful as a tank, while the other two have little value except for their crowd control abilities.

Do you have a link?

As far that I know, a follower doesn't reduce the XP you gain. Also one fifth of his/her Chance of Finding Magical Items adds to your, so - even if you find the follower useless per se, you can at least leverage his or hers equipment slots ^_^
