Nothing and I mean nothing beats Khems trade marked ****** slap. Having said that, I am a dps sorc. I used to just bubble ashara and send her in first. But since I got xalek I pretty much use him exclusively. He makes an excellent tank. Comes with shytte gear but what comp doesn't. Spend your extra comms on gear for him. You won't be disappointed. He makes the section x / black hole dailies a breeze. If anyone tries to tell you that xalek sucks its prolly cuz A: they did not take the time to gear him or B: they just don't know what tanking actually means. I love ashara as a comp. Prolly my fav comp in the game. Its just that xalek makes a sorc's life so much easier. And he likes to kill things. Im pretty sure anything he looks at he wants to at least cut parts of it off with his saber. Xalek FTW !!

Xalek is a complete and utter waste of space. I wish I could of chosen a different apprentice then that stupid dood. He can't tank to save his life let alone mine, he can't dps to kill a squirrel. His story is also a waste of credits. It is like Bioware didn't know how to fit in a last companion into the Inquisitor story so they just pulled Xalek out of a dumpster.

I was so excited when I got him and now I'm pissed I got him. I would of rather had a companion who can range tank like every other class gets. Inquisitors are the only people who don't get a ranged tank companion ***... two melee tanks?! and they both suck ***!?

A well geared Khem will beat a well geared Xalek in 99.99% of situations. Period.

that's nice dear. But Khem's throat cancer voice is just to much to handle. Do you really want to listen to garbally **** for forty some odd levels plus 3 to 4 months of dailies? English beats garbally **** %99.99 of the time. Period.

however.... Nothing and I mean nothing is more bad azz than khems back handed beyotch slap.

As a Healer, I find that using Ashara does the trick quite well.

I never die plus I don't stay for too long in battles.


But then again, I am geared in BH/Dread Guard, while Ashara is in full Columi with some Rakata.

Am I the only person who seriously uses Revel?

Xalek can be good, but he doesn't have Khem's sheer tankiness.
