Xalek as a tank?

I have no idea what people who advocate Xalek are doing different than I am.

I can't get that guy to tank squat. With Khem in Tionese and I in War Hero I can solo all the Heroic Dailies on Belsavis with just shield, whirlwind and the occasional heal. With Xalek in Columi I have to spend the entire time healing him or he face plants. It goes WAAAY slower. I can't DPS at all or else he drops.

Fast too.

I don't have Zalek yet, I only use Ashara since i got her at lvl 3, My inquisitor is lvled as tank so I don't really need another tank as much as Ineed dps, I geared her up really well and it's work just fine with her, I'm not in a rush to get Xalek I really don't like the companion look/story/having him when you almost reach 50.

I learned to work with well with one companion, I did the same thing on my Warrior, using Jeassa Wilsam for practically everything. I will try Xalek but like I said I really hate him since the first time I saw him!

If you see my Inquisitor and you just want to punch him in the face for his arrogance, good, I feel the same way!

As long time sorcerer (just back from short break..),
1. Khem is your friend from level 1 to 50.
2. on level 50 with good heals get HK-51.

Xalek is worst tank ever.

Khem is great tank I used him as our group tank on Directive 7 story when I had lousy gear (battlemaster\recruit), with my current gear (mix dread\campaign augmented) and khem with columi set he can tank tons of damage and I almost don't need to heal him.
