I thought the idea was that Xalek was shaving supposed to do a bit more damage to compensate for having a bit less armor but I don't think I ever actually checked if that were true.

Ironically, Xalek has more endurance than Khem and less willpower than Khem has attack.

Xalek has 5% more defense baseline that inq gets too.

I find he is a bit like assassins. Sometimes he takes the beating like a boss, other times he goes as if he was a paper towel being hammered by an hyrdrolic powered weight.

Depends what kind of damage you are facing. Found xalek relatively better against those suppressive fire mobs for exemple.

As on now, I'm using Xalek for small mobs and Khem for gold stars.

Bit of a pain to keep both geared tough.

Mostly tough as soon as their defensive cooldown end at end game they go down rather fast.

I use ashara with lightning sorc tbh. More killing, less waiting and solo pve stuff dies before reaching me. If not I have a knock back, force slow and force speed, altough I mostly just use the bubble stun and the quick self-heal.

Sorc's squishy, but whatever thrash there is you oneshot.

I am a Synthweaver on my Sorc so I was able to keep Khem in blues while leveling from 1-50 (I just returned to the game), so the choice was easy. As I started getting PVP gear upgrades back In the day, I would give them to Xalek So I decided to use him now that I came back. He seems to do an okay job until you want to solo a Heroic 2 then I break out Khem.

Never used the others
