I equipped a special item on the companion before the option were removed. so the item is in the special slot and i cannot gear the companion with it since its colliding with the special item.
So right now she has no chest :/
Also what is it that you are using which allows you to see the items that the companions are equipping. looks interesting.'
*Edit When you cast flash of light your companion will start attacking you like it does when you use a buff
*Edit 2, When you exchange points for gold then the points will not be affected, meaning i can do this as much as i want.
