I noticed the dark elven females with the Amazon-type outfits in T'sen Ang, and, not going to lie, I was curious. I decided to use the cheesy DM/RS exploit to permanently mind control one. They have very good stats and can use all equipment - unlike the widower archers who will not equip new bows if their bow is taken from them, I've tried it - but what the dark elven amazonesses will not do, is equip new body armor. Gauntlets, helms and boots yes - body armor, no. I can only assume they're that hardcore? Is there a way around this and do they get some kind of bonus in their base stats to overcome the unwillingness to use armor? How is the behavior even programmed in? I mentioned they have very good stats and skills. Although they have fairly high skill levels, they don't have any rank in those skills. Is there any way to train them, with Educator or through levelling, or do DM'd companions always have the skill rank they start out with? What are the best DM'd companions, including monsters? I'm looking for some options more obscure than Lianna, Shalmo or Stout. Particularly would like some healer NPCs. Suggestions?
