When adventuring on your Trooper which companion do you choose to have at your side?

Personal Answer: Aric Jorgan. He is a purrrrfect fit for my Trooper.

You must be new to Trooper...

Elara. She's the ONLY viable companion while leveling. Nobody else can come close to player DPS and the tanks do a pathetic job holding aggro.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

Dorne. Due to game mechanics, it's best to have a healer along with my tank.

This is a problem for all classes. It would be a nice QoL improvement to be able to switch any companion's role. That way we can choose the companion based on desire rather than game mechanics.

M1-4X. Since i'm a healer, i prefer to send 4X in then stand back and heal him, occasionally getting off a mortar volley or other AoE. I have tried Tanno Vic but... Come on, 4X has the best companion voice in the game. Fact.

EDIT: To answer the above, 4X does a fantastic job holding agro, along with my threat drop abilities

Forex! Who doesn't love "blazing Imperial scum in a blood-filled display!"?
Ooh! In Elder Scrolls Online, I get magic spells and colossal PvP! That sounds cool, but one question, where do I get a lightsaber?

Pretty much this.
I'll take care of the killing and holding aggro and Dorne will keep me alive.

Tanno Vik. i would rather be able to summon all five.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic any day. 8/26/14 That was my old signature but after RotHC, I went back to superheroes and swords and magic. Now waiting on Dragon Age and a SWTOR story expac for my Bioware fix 7/30/15 Returned for KotFE. Finally, a story expac.

My Commando is only lvl 31, and runs around with Elara Dorne. Ditched Aric when I could. For some reason I never liked him, maybe because of his introduction on Ord Mantell. I don't hate him, but like Elara better. Nice accent too. Pity my femTrooper can't romance her. Ah well...
