After Balmorra, who BEST to use - Corso, Bowdaar or Akaavi?

I have always used Corso and geared him out. Never used Bowdaar or Risha. Now I get Akaavi after Balmorra. Who is best or better to use for questing until max level? I like Corso since he acts like a tank/dps. Can Bowdaar or Akaavi do better?

If you turn off Wookie Toss and the aoe abilities Bowdarr tanks very well. Corso annoys me and I hate to say it that stupid harpoon is useful sometimes. I haven't obtained Risha yet but from reading around a lot of people use Akavi.

A lot of people say Bowdaar, even stuffed out in equipment is squishier. Have to try myself.
Dont have Akaavi yet, but tried out Risha, who is quite fine in Sniper mode for normal questing.
...and thats the way the flatcake crumbles.

Risha, the girl tanks as well as Corso or Bo and can do massive damage. By far our best pet. I am level 41 and have used he sense I got her.
Burst class does burst damage.

More news at 11 including snipers shoot stuff with guns.

I used Risha up until Hoth, where we get our healing companion, Guss.

Risha, all the way. I've got Gus now and I alternate between him and Risha depending on how much ground I need to cover in a short amount of time. Fights with Gus take much longer and you definitely do all the heavy lifting.

Running and gunning? Risha

Pacing myself and watching for patrols? Gus
