Seem to be some errors in what people are saying here. The best companion for a DPS Sorc is hands down Talos, you can do more with a healer companion than you ever can with a second DPS; Talos is what you should normally be running with. If you're looking to solo Heroics then why you would be trying to use another DPS companion is beyond me. You need a tank or healer, so either Talos or Khem Val are the only options you should be looking at (yes Khem Val is a superior tank than Xalek).

As for the best DPS companion, it's KH-51; and yes he is far better than anyone else. Of course if you can't get him because you are F2P then I would almost suggest spending the money to unlock him; otherwise there is no best between the regulars. I would venture to say ranged DPS is probably better for the Sorc though.

Talos works well in heroic, even with sorc (was kinda surprised) but for trash pulls you are better off with a tank. Your shield will more than hold the time needed to kill them, and sorc works better when not under pressure obviously.

Xalek vs khem seems comparable btw. Khem has more armor, xalek has better defense. Xalek however holds threat better, or at least seems too.

At any rate, he is easier to gear up since I have a sintank that just send his leftover through legacy gear

Honestly I just say Khem is better because of how messed up Xalek used to be, way past experience really. So I ended up just using Khem and constantly getting him raid gear. These days they probably are closer together. All though I think of it this way.... Xalek is an avoidance tank like the assassin, and personally think avoidance tanks work better on the player than companion because they'll have skills and such that affect their tank ability more; companion tank should be able to take a lot of hits and having higher armor rating/shield/absorb works a bit better than more defense. If I had them geared out the same I'd test this, Xalek is a funner tank I'll say that.

i used talos cause i like the heals but to me andronikus is hands down the best dps

the melee companions take too fking long

u can also switch andronikus back and forth between aoe and single target mode buffs
