I'm sticking with Ashara. When it's a really hard fight then i take Drellik.

Don't know about Xalek yet, but gonna get him soon.

I'm only a mid 20's Assassin, but I have to swear by RV at this point. I do enough damage on my own that I really just need a healer. Andronikos is useful for blasting things down, but I still miss the health deficit.

He's noisy as sin, but he's sure darn handy for me.

As a lvl 42 deception, I use Khem Val all the time except for really hard fights, where even with my spec I tank with dark charge while being healed by Trellik. Khem is way too squishy at the end of leveling.

I like Ashara for DPS as a Darkness spec. However, nothing beats the healer you get from Toth. I can fight two elites and emerge with almost full health.

the healing companion is the droid on the ship right? "v-R8 i think its name is

not tried him out as I've pretty much used Khem Val the whole time, while he can hold some aggro, he generally isn't very good at it.

Most of the elites I've taken on, as soon as I go in after taking the adds out, I pretty much take the aggro off Khem as he just cannot hold it.

He also dies fairly regularly despite having up-to-date gear.

I think they refer to another healing companion you get much later.

OT: I play as a tank and use andro as dps. It works great so far (lvl 40 atm)

Talos Drellik is the other healing companion. You get him on Hoth. He's much better than the droid since he has attack abilities and CC.

I would say Khem is best for mobs and most bosses. Towards the end you will pretty much need a healer for certain bosses or you will die, so Talos comes 2nd.
