I'm the kind of player who likes to keep their companions well-stocked in terms of weapons and armor. However, vendors only ever display my character's stats rather than my companion's when it comes time to upgrade.

Is there a way to change this?

There should be drop downs up the top of the vendor window that have the option "Show all"

There is a UI option to show comparative tooltips for companion gear as well.

In beta there was an option to compare equip for you and your companion in the tooltips. Check the options. I'm sure it's still there.
I shot first.

Yeah, it's still there. I saw it last night. It's on my "list" of things to toggle on/off when making a new character.

In preferances the there should the ability to show compaion gear stats when you mouse over a piece of gear. I dont recall the exact tab its under but it is there. So its hit esc then click preferances tab. from there you will have to search a bit but should not take too long.


Seems im too slow folks alrdy beat me to the post :P

It's exactly where everyone said it was, in the User Interface tab.

Thank you very much. I should have checked there first.

np, there are a large number of options in there and it's a pain to find stuff if you're not 100% sure what you're looking for.

There is a way to turn it on. I did find a small bug with it though last night in that I turned it on at level 1 and I had to go back and trun it on again when I got the the npc as even though it was cheaked it was not turned on.
