Is it worth upgrading my companion’s gear in Skyrim?

Just getting started with companions. Should I be evaluating their gear and transferring upgrade items to them to improve their performance?


The game will decide for you what they should wear: they’ll always try to equip the best stuff they have. It is worth giving them upgrades, especially if you don’t plan on getting them killed.

One thing to keep in mind: you can’t teach an old follower new tricks. If your follower thinks, acts, and combats like a mage, giving them a two-handed axe or heavy armor isn’t going to be at all useful for them because they aren’t going to get better at axes or wearing heavy armor, even though they will choose to use it in lieu of magic.
