Item statistics for companion…..

When checking dropped items (weapons/armor/implants/etc) against you character’s currently equipped item you’re informed of the change in stats when hovering over the slot which make life a lot easier. Wouldn’t it be a good idea that when clicking the companion tap in the character window and getting your companion stats up, that when you hover over the item in your inventory that it gives the stat changes to your companion’s currently equipped items….

Just a thought….

It does. There is a option in the preferances that you can activate to do this. I can't remember under which tab it is off the top of my head though.

such a good Idea it's already in the game...

In your preferences you can turn on Companion item comparisons. This makes it so when you hover over an item your stats and the stats of the companion you have with you show up.

Never attribute to malice that which can be ascribed to sheer stupidity.

It's a little clunky but it works... basically if you turn it on then you'll get two comparison windows when you hover over an item, one for you and one for your current companion. The annoying part is when you and your companion both dual wield and you hover over a weapon, since you get four comparison windows then and it gets kind of cluttered. What I really wish they'd do is let you set it to show a comparison to your item unless you have your companion's character sheet open, in which case it would compare it to them instead. That way it would show the window for whoever would actually get the item equipped if you right clicked it. No big deal, I just think it would be a bit cleaner...

Also, it would kind of be nice if they actually mentioned somewhere that the companion item option exists. I was playing for a couple of months before I found it...
