Heavy armor: Corellian power suit (looks incredibly amazing on the Handmaiden)

 

Medium armor: Sith combat suit (simply the best)

 

Light armor: Mandalorian heavy suit

 

Robes: either Ossus Keeper Robe or Matukai adept robe

The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

Corellian power suit does look good on Handmaiden, very true, but I've also found her attractive in Mandalorian Battle Armor. I've also found that Visas and Mira look good in Durasteel Heavy Armor. Mira also looks good ib Flex Heavy Armor.

 

Sith Combat Suit looks good on Bao-Dur and Atton as well, but I found them good looking in Cinnagar War Suit and Heavy Cinnagar War Suit

 

Light Armor is really only something I put on Atton and sometimes Bao-Dur. The Echani Light Armor and Electromesh Suit look good on them as well.

Can Visas wear armor? Never tried it on her.

 

I always use the Sith Combat Suit for Mira because it allows a +7 dex modifier and I always use her as a dual-wielding gun slinger, and well the Handmaiden looks good in pretty much everything. :)

if you can give her a light armor feat, yes she can.

 

 

I have found her to be dangerous with good Light Jedi Armor with good upgrades. Also I have found that she is deadly with MTWF with Shiico form either Twin Lightsaber or a double lightsaber.

 

"MTWF", you mean M'uhk'gfa or what.

Yes, she can, when you level up and you recieve a feat, you find armor feats available.

I never even considered giving her armor. Could be interesting, though, making her a gun-wielder instead of saber attacker.

 

If your going to put armor on someone, unless it's light armor, I'd say probably stick with melee or lightsaber. If your talking about Mira then that would make sense unless you trained her as a Jedi. I do ues armored Jedi like Bastila, Juhani, and Visas and sometimes Revan or the Exile.

I wonder, has anyone already found for instance Nomi's robe, Sylvar's robe and the others without cheating? Is it even possible?

 

Thon's robe is really great since it allows Force Jump.. but I'm abhorred at the thought of using console commands.

I never found them. I had to cheat them in to see what the benefits are for their robes.

I found them, but only once, most of the time I just use savegame editors to get it.

You could use KSE too, but that is sort of like cheating.
