I thought this would be a given from you? If the home turf advantage is mitigated by Vol also being a darksider, then feats against Revan aren't really usable here. And I don't see how a guy who resisted aboeloth's TP is being felled by Vitiate... in anyway shape or form.
“We defeated the wrong enemy” - General George S. Patton, Berlin 1945
"You have the same power I once sensed in your uncle Luke, but without the light. You must not leave before you have found some."
Vol had much of the power of Skywalker, combined with experience, and it had been a devastating encounter.
Ultimately, having the power of Luke Skywalker doesn't tell you *that* much. Starkiller and Kyp Durron also have the power of Luke Skywalker according to numerous accounts, but I only see a few people here trying to compare them in a similar light to Vol, even though they have actually justified these accolades with some showings. The reality is Luke Skywalker isn't simply power - he's the highest pinnacle of that power possible. What distinguishes Force-users like Kyp or Starkiller from Luke is - sure, if they exert their power from a long period of time they might be able to lift a rock to the same height - but Luke is so much more masterful and efficient with his abilities. So frankly, I don't see why this statement of Vol isn't just an inferior statement of what Starkiller, Kyp, and even Jacen already have.
Also, it's entirely possible Abeloth is strictly speaking of telepathic power here. If I recall correctly, that's the only aspect of the Force from which they clashed at. Abeloth seems in awe over how Vol was capable of ****ing her up the way he did. You can say it's implied that Abeloth likewise assumes the same of his other Force powers, but given telepathy is what's in question here, it's debatable. And then look no further to beings like Kaan or Bastila Shan who are enormously gifted telepaths but in other fields are lacking. That's not to say Vol isn't ridiculously powerful, since like Ziggy said he still has his performance vs Abeloth, but I question how well that translates to other avenues too. For example, Revan and Vitiate were essentially peers in telepathy, but that doesn't necessarily translate to Force power.
