What mode is better for jaesa?

I have Jaesa for a while now and I pulled up her abilities to activate some of them. It was then that I noticed an incineration mode. I am new when it comes to companions although I am lvl 38. I don't know what is better, her normal damage mode or her incinerate mode. Please experienced players, help me. All legit answers welcome.

Both are viable Stances for Jaesa, The Perforation stance if remember correctly increses Armour Penetration where as the Incinerate provides a chance to apply a DoT(Damage over Time) to the enemy, so it's entirely up to you to choose which you wish. When I was leveling my Sith Warrior I used the Perforation stance for Jaesa, however with Ashara on my Inquisitor I used Incineration as I felt that was more suited to her with her being a Sentinel, it's all up to personal preference really.

Most pure damage dealing companions have the choice of 15% armor penetration or a damage over time effect.

When I'm doing solo content, I prefer the 15% armor penetration because often times enemies die before the DoT effect has a chance to do much damage. I'd rather my companion just hit harder all the time.

When I'm fighting gold star enemies (like major class story arcs) or using a companion for a heroic quest, I switch them over to the damage over time effect. I assume that it does more damage overall than the armor penetration if it has a little bit of time to tick away.
