I have noticed that there is an armor progression for each of

Kormac (Templar),

Kormac

Lyndon (Scoundrel)

Lyndon

and Eirena (Enchantress).

Eirena

What triggers the progression? Is it purely a visual effect or does it have some purpose beyond eye candy?

  • Can you elaborate, please? I don't understand what you mean.

  • As the follower levels their armor changes in appearance and I'd suspect quality. I can't provide proof at the moment but I suspect it's level-based (every 10 levels maybe?)

  • It most likely scales with the way the Armor Tiers scale in appearance.

  • Ok, that makes sense. Difficulty level, maybe? Testing required!

It triggers based on difficulty level. Inferno is same as Hell, so you get the last follower tier when you reach hell difficulty.

I've been wondering this myself as I noticed the change shortly after a level up, all my followers changed appearance when they hit level 28. At least they did for me.

As for any effect on combat I haven't noticed any, they seem to deal and receive the same amounts of damage as before.

  • I'd say this one is more accurate, as my Templar was at the highest tier at level 48.

The follower armor appearance changes based on level. The first change happens at level 30 (I think, might be 20) and the second change happens at level 50.

There armor groes by the strength of the items u give them. I tried it at my scoundrel and enchantress who both had their standard items. I gave them amulet, 2 rings, new wep eand a follower special and their armor has grown. It doesnt grow by level, i tested it, test it by urself if u dont believe
