Xalek

The location of this NPC is unknown.
A Kaleesh warrior who was captured by the Empire in battle and brought to Korriban to train as a Sith, Xalek prefers to let his actions speak in place of words. Before even reaching Korriban, Xalek had killed several of his fellow slaves who were also intended for training--a bold statement by any measure.

Xalek melds his training as a Kaleesh warrior with a firm belief in the Sith Code. He kills without remorse and is an expert student of lightsaber technique and martial combat.

Likes: Following the Sith Code, fighting overwhelming odds, brevity

Primary Stat: Willpower

When do we meet his arch-nemesis, Xoctor Xho?

You actually get this companion on Korriban. Level wise yeah you will be on Voss. But your mission takes you to Korriban where he was trained at the Academy. Just like you he is a former slave. He is a Kaleesh, and a ranged (force lightning) tank.

By Arqs at 2011-12-02 07:52:12

He can be either a ranged Tank or ranged Dps, depending on which stance you choose for him,

For tanking - http://www.torhead.com/ability/dFpo3Zh
For Dps - http://www.torhead.com/ability/5R1Q4ab

So you can micro manage him as you like.

Haven't run into this character yet but his species looks like a Kaleesh. Same species as General Grevious before he became a cyborg.

Xalek is a ranged tank. Please stop spreading misinformation that he's a 'ranged DPS'. He is not. He has that option, but he will always be lacking compared to real DPS companions.

He is the Sith Inquisitor's 'ranged tank' but he will spend most of his time at melee range. Furthermore, most of his attacks are limited to 10 yard range. He has no melee attacks. He feels more like a mix between a ranged and melee tank.

You obtain him after Voss, most likely around level 45-47. Yes, this means you only get to use him for one planet before endgame content. Xalek is by far the latest companion obtained in the game of all classes. I strongly recommend you use him for Corellia as he will get massive affection gains from conversations and this will be the only place you get to use him at.

In my own biased opinion, he is far better than Khem Val, but that's up to you to decide!

For those of you wondering, Xalek is a Sith Inquisitor, but speced as an Assassin rather than Sorceror. If you are ever confused about the role of a companion, look at their abilities and their starting gear. In this case, you would see that Xalek has multiple taunts and threat generation abilities. His starting gear features defense and he holds a shield generator. Thus, he is a tank. He is not ranged, despite having a couple of long range force powers. He will use Charge to jump to enemies and begin attacks.

So far, I've found him great for AOE grinding.

He is a "Ranged Tank" according to the game itself. Each class gets a Melee Tank, a Healer, a Ranged DPS, a Melee DPS, and a Ranged Tank.

Khem Val is Melee Tank
Andronikos is Ranged DPS
Ashara is Melee DPS
Talos is Healer
Xalek is Ranged Tank

So while I agree he has very limited range, the game itself refers to him as a "ranged tank" therefore we are not wrong, if anyone is, Bioware is wrong.

You'll need to be level 43 to get through the full class quest. There are level 47 elites as part of the final quest, and you just can't hit them with more than a 4 level difference.

I had to chime in because I get tired of reading that he is a ranged Tank. He is a tank with ranged abilities, but if you click attack while Force Barrier is toggles he will leap into a group and deal with them at melee range with his doublesaber. He will also use the aforementioned ranged attacks, but he is a Sith Assassin that uses melee attacks also. Not sure why the hell people call him a ranged tank. Just because he uses some ranged powers, Lightning Strike, Force Lightning, and Thundering Blast does not make him a ranged tank.

There are two customizations for Xalek at the Security Vendor at the Ilum spaceport (the area where you take a space shuttle down to Ilum). One customization gets rid of the hood which exposes his elongated ears and another one that adds small horns on the sides of the face mask below the ears - very minor changes.

You Receive This Companion During The Quest "The Role Of An Apprentice" At Level 45 It Will Take You Back To Korriban. You'll Be Currently On The Planet Voss Or Near Leaving It When You're Able to Obtain This Quest. He's A Tank With Melee & Range Abilities As Well As Have A Healing Skill Doesn't Heal Much But It Helps.

because this guy is obviously a tank? that would be my guess.... i don't see how anyone could think this guy is a dps when you look at his abilities, starting gear, and stats..... :/

Not a good companion for a deception assassin. Xalek keeps moving so that he is facing the same direction you are facing, and is fighting right next to you. So the enemy will not have its back turned to you for easy Mauls. Khem val is a standup fighter never moves , Xalek will move < 5s after you move behind the enemy so that the two of you are facing the same direction.

Need to stack defense as high as possible for him to be an effective tank. Something's funky with his shield and absorption stats, but defense works correctly.

Been powering through the main story line to get this guy. Im specced darkness(tank) and have been using Talos Drellik to heal me. I'm level 41 right now and was able to get to Necessary Sacrifice on Voss, but all my attacks are resisted so im pretty much forced to lvl up a bit. The mobs on this quest are lvl 45-46.
